They broke the fourth wall a while ago and said anyone can understand Stewie when they need to because plot.

I spit out my food when they kicked in the fourth verse about not freeing the slaves.

Yes, Die Hard is a christmas movie.

fyi, Warwick Mall is a real mall in RI.

I'm surprised they went this way with the plot though; Meg strikes me as someone who takes matters into her own hands. I can't say more, because, Disney.

They pulled another 'oh my stars' with Peter.

Soooo many mall jokes.

I thought Meg smiling was way weirder. Yeah, why am I not surprised that Meg got off to the first person to show her some kind of affection? Or just Santa in general? And apparently you see Jimmy Connors your first time? And ONLY the first time.

Howe old is Meg? Surely this isn't the very first time she, umm, "smiled".

In fact, wasn't there a joke about her getting a fatal infection from frozen hot dogs?

They are so inconsistent with who can understand Stewie. Chris can, but Meg can't? The soda jerk could.

They lampshaded that by saying it depended on if they needed something to be funny.

I watch it every Christmas...along with The Muppet Christmas Carol.

I didn't love Stewie being scared of Santa after his previous murder attempts; but I can believe that Meg never "Sorry, Disney!"-ed before.  She's had a few sexual encounters, but I can believe she never reached Disney+...guys her age aren't usually the best experiences.

If Cleveland Brown said that "Die Hard" is a Christmas story, then that settles it; end of story.

"Hi.  You're gonna die."

(I'm still waiting for Cleveland to tell everyone the story of "Die Hard 2").

This was a weird episode. I got a laugh out of Peter starting a podcast, and the implication of Connie faking her own death with Peppa Pig.

Ooh. Danny McBride gets a huge burn. Do they not like him?

And a Skeelo joke. That's a huge reach back. Lego priest was a big burn.

Please tell me someone else knows who Connie Sellecca is.

Do you want a vegetable sent to you in the mail? I cracked on this one. I don't know anyone who uses blue apron.

Meh. There were a couple funny bits, but I found my attention wandering.

What was the joke about the Lego priest? Is that a real show?

No, the theme music is from Benny Hill. He would chase around sexily dressed women. The priest is chasing little boys.

"Short Cuts"

Take THAT, Sizzler!

I got the feeling Chicago Seinfeld was hanging around the writers room for years.

I loved Peter and Lois's war to see who can be the most awful, and OF COURSE it ended with them screwing. Lois moving everything in the kitchen was the last straw for me. That's when I thought "You monster."

Yes, Brian is awful, but being so awful is what made George Townsend improve his whole life. And he now only has one testicle, so I feel it evened out.

Meh. I was suspicious of George Townsend from the beginning and knew Brian lying about having read his books would come back and bite him. I was hoping Brian's heroic act would be revealed as a fraud and hilarity would ensue.

Lois blowing up about Hathaway was random and hilarious. And Tiny Tom Cruise comes back.

Who was the librarian? Was she recurring?

"How's Frank Sinatra Jr? Do you still hang out with him?"
"No, he died. I'll never forget it."

This was a weird episode, but it was nice to see a (fairly) realistic of the future of this show. Everyone's an old loser except for Stewie. I wish that didn't turn out to be a dream, Stewie managed to kill the whole family but Brian, who couldn't die. I was actually satisfied at that.

The biggest laugh from this episode was the slowed down version of Surfin' Bird, and Peter listing off all the dead cameos. Ed Asner is still with us. Rodney Dangerfield was supposed to join the cast when the show came back, but he died before he could.

Strange ep, but I had it pegged as being a dream or something. TBH, I wasn't expecting it to be very good before they began with the Citizen Kane opening scene.

The design of Stewie's mansion at the beginning was really good. 

That's all I got. Family Guy isn't really doing anything for me lately.

I think all the future stuff was funny - everything named after Brady, the accents. The 'future music.'

I guess Meg didn't transition to male this time though.

The spoof scene of Stewie limping to walking normally, didn’t they do the same thing with Meg a few seasons ago?

Meg's being traded to American Dad?! That's insulting. To American Dad. I also appreciated Homer making a cameo, plus Peter wondering why the whole Wakanda bit wasn't The Cleveland Show.

I wasn't really feeling this one until the Nike commercial.

That was a brilliant bit. 

I was dying when Peter kneeled because he shit himself. I knew it was obviously going to spin out of control but wasn't expecting WaQuohoag. 

I loved the end though when Peter said the anthem is played too much. 

I've never heard that song.

The Hampster Dance was big in the early 2000s.

Fun Fact: it's a sped up version of "Whistle Stop" from Disney's animated Robin Hood movie.

This was an odd episode, but worth it to watch Brian drown himself in the toilet.

I liked the Cleveland short. Also, Quagmire couldn't drink, but we see him with a glass of wine while reading a book at the restaurant.

This was an interesting "make Brian suffer" ep, but I thought Stewie destroyed his time machine and was unable to rebuild it when Brian died.
