It's that time again. Let's just get this over with.
Love, Blacktually: Good
I Dream of Jesus: Good
Road to Germany: Good
Baby Not on Board: Meh
The Man with Two Brians: Debatable
Tales of a Third Grade Nothing: Meh
Ocean's 3 and a Half: Good
Family Gay: Bad
The Juice is Loose: Bad
Fox-y Lady: Good
Not all Dogs go to Heaven: Bad
We Love you, Conrad: Good
Three Kings: Good
Peter's Progress: Good
Once again, let's discuss the debatable first.
In The Man with Two brians, they get a new dog cuz Brian is getting old, and he turns out to be a perfect guy that everyone loves. Yep, it's that story. For that reason, i can't decide if i like it or not. It feels contrived and mean at time. Then, for no reason, new Brian turns out to be a dick as he tells Stewie he raped Rupert. Stewie kills him. The end, Bah.
Also, 420 wasn't debatble, but i had no room for it elsewhre, so let's talk about it, ignoring the cat scene, I love the song (despite the Rockeete slam), and i also love the title drop cutaway. However, the episode was weird with it's plot, Seth, i mean Brian, feels that pot should be legailzed because it's not bad. So he gets pot legalized but it makes everyone lazy, even Petr.
“He can't set up a cutaway”
“...He's a list of of celberites i don't like”
Said list does not include Adam Sandler, so it's invalid. (Which is odd, cuz there's a Sandler bashing cutaway later in the season. It was spot on_)Also, Chris Martin is listed, as well his parents...and anceroters. The hell is your problem with him, Seth?
Anyway, Carter's business is being hurt so he forces Brian to help make pot illegal again. He says no until Carter says he will get Brian's Novel published. At first, it seems the writers will take the high road and make him decline? Nope, he says yes after, okay, a lot of coaxing, and whioops, his book bombs.
I guess this ends up being a lesson, but i have no idea what Seth thinks of pot. It should be legal....but it makes people slow. Then the plot is derailed and it's just...meh.
Okay, let's move on.
(Saying least fave would imply they didn't 100 percent suck.
Full botom 3 this time, ranked by how much i disliked watching it.
Not all Dogs go to Heavna: Yeah, bad epoisode is bad.
The Juice is Loose: Why was it even made?
Family Gay: Gays don't choose to be gay, except you can choose to become gay. Also, all gays are annoying, and girly.
I Dream of Jesus: The most consesitly enjoyable episode of the season. Keyword beijng consistent.
Love Blacktually: Almost had a bad brian episode, but nope we get nice moments with ihm. And wow, Cleveand can be atually interesting sometimes. I hope he never gets a whole show to be dull though..
Three Kings: I've never read these books/seen thse movies, but the spoofs were sitll funny. Best one was Misery.
To say htis season wasn't that great would be an understatement. We had 3 bad episodes, and honestly, the good ones weren't THAT good. I Dream of Jesus is the only one i may go back to, at least in terms of how memorable it was. Oh, i enjoyed the “good” ones okay ,and consider Road to Germany a runner up for fave, but they just weren't up to snff.
I know some may put Road to Germany as the best, but it just didn't make me laugh as much as the other Road to Episodes, but it wasn't bad, and for an episode set during the island of poland, it's not racist at all.
There were more episodes i had issues with than ones i liked all the way through. You've seen my baby not on board notepage, Man with two brians was cliche, Tales of a third grade nothing was just not funny (despite WHO THE HELL CARES) , Oncean's 3 and a Half had a few bad jokes and just barley got a good mostly cuz i'm glad Bonnie finally had the damn baby, Family Gay insulted gays, Jucie is loose didn't need to exist, Fox-y Lady had more damn meh bashing for no reason and it had Brian being his usual preach yself, Stew-Riods was stupid AND the title lies (the stewie thing is only a subplot) , and Peter's Progress had incest jokes involving Carter.
A sign of things to come.
The rest, i liked more easily, even if they had small issues too. But first, let's talk about Fox-y Lady. Some people don't like, but honestly, i thought it was okay. For one, the Satire was spot on, and the subplot was brilliant. Handi-Quacks may be the best thing in the Season.
What i find interesting, is that the very start, and end of the season was strong but the middle kind of sucked. This season, a lot of the problems with the series came to a head. Peter was a dick, Meg was picked on for no reason, Stewie had a lot of gay moments and Brian...oh god, Brian.
He was..mixed. Yeah. He had some good moments in Love Blacktually and I love you Conrad, where he made up for his mistakes. Then we had Preachy Brian, like in 420, and worst of all, Asshole Preachy Brian, like in....you know what. Brian was okay at best, horrible at worst.
Peter is still the worst waste of space on the show, though.
This season was kind of bad. The good episodes were worth watching but the bad episodes were not. While i actually consider certain episodes worse, thanks to cruel, cruel gags, these 3 are among the worst I've seen in awhile. When there episodes weren;'t bad, they had all the signs of Bad Family Guy episodes.
The reason i hate The Juice if loose more than NADGTH, is cuz it's every issue with modern Family guy in 22 minutes. Boring, pointless story? Yep. Unlikable characters? Yep. Pointless cutaways? Yep. Weird/bad, moral? Yep. Conway Twity? YES.
I can't muster up the hate that this season gets, but yeah, it's our first Bad Season. Well, it has enough bad stuff to get the rating, anyway.
Thankfully, there's much else to say. Well, I will say that we did have minor important thing, such as Jillian getting married, Bonnie having the baby, and oh yeah, this was the last season with Clevland in it. He left for a show no one watched. They never explain why he vanished in This SHOW, so , you'll be lost if you don't watch it.
And let's be honest, that's everyone. So yeah, i wish i could say more, but i gotta get started on Season 8. It will be easier, cuz, of it's 21 epoisodes, I've seen 4 of them. (Road to the Multierse, Peterassment, April in Quahog, and Brian Griffin's House of Payne). So i need to watch 17...or 16.
Yeah, theres' a banned episode called “Partial Terms of Endermeant”. Netflix does not have it, for obvious reasons, and i do not live where it actually aired, and there's no way in hell I'm picking up a DVD.
So it would be grat if someone found a way for me to watch it online. Sepaking of Season ,8 this is where we enter uncharted toerirtiy. I've seen plenty of the episodes back when they aired, but around halfway, i lost interest, so i haven't seen a lot of them at all. (Besides the ones already listed, i saw Spies Remmencist of us, Quagmire's Dad which i watched a couple months ago but i need to rewatch it makw sure i have some facts right, and Something Something Something dark side. That makes 14 I've never seen in full, though maybe some i will realize i've seen when i watch them).
This should be fun. So overall, Season 7 is a mixed bag where the bad episode drag it down. I'll be fair and not grade it as Bad, but..
SEASON GRADE: VERY MEH
There, Happy? Also, if you think I'm being too harsh on the show...wait until this is over. While we're talking about “when this is over', i will do a list of the best and worst Modern Episodes (which wll be 7 onward, to make it harder. I love a good challenge) , and i will also review the writers to find the biggest culprit for bad episodes. I may other stuff, but we'll see.
Also, of the Season 8 episodes, the ones I'm most interested to see are Brian and Stwie (for obvious reasons) and Hannah Banna. The latter is about Miley Cryus.
Yeah, good bye.
(Also, i should have said htis earleir, but if you want me to explain my thoughts on any episode i didn't discuss at all here, just ask)
