Family Guy Season 8, Episode 13: "Go Stewie Go" Review

In this week's episode, Family Guy broaches the topic of inappropriate inter-generational relations and childhood cross dressing. So it's kinda the normal fare. Sadly, this episode's comedy (if it can so be called) is also the normal fare that the series has been producing recently. While there are a couple of funny moments, there are more misses than hits here.

The opening jokes are kinda stupid (legless guy, really?). But when the story leads us to the American version of Jolly Farm Revue, Stewie's favorite kid's show, things start to get interesting. Stewie dresses in drag to get on the show. Now, Stewie in drag really isn't anything shocking since he's been reduced to not much more than gay baby in the past few seasons, but he's actually doing it for a girl this time.

Stewie isn't the only one in the Griffin family with a new love interest. A strapping lad named Anthony is Meg's new boytoy, shocking the entire town of Quahog and causing Peter to have this very awkward attraction to his own daughter. But the creepiness doesn't stop there - Lois soon develops a thing for Anthony and jumps his bones. This Mrs. Robinson moment is inspired by Peter's ruthless casual mentions of his wife's aging. But seriously, I can't understand how anybody in this family actually still listens to a word he says anymore.
