Family Guy Season 9 Review “Space Cadet”

Given that this episode of “Family Guy” focused on Chris, by far the nerdiest of the gang (although I suppose Meg is a close second, only in a different way altogether), it seemed appropriate that the episode, “Space Cadet,” would open with a Monty Python tribute. As the second of his shows in the last couple of months to feature such a tribute- the other being “The Cleveland Show”- it would seem that Seth MacFarlane was on a Python jag his own damn self. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, to adapt a phrase from another much beloved cult show.

Alas, it was not in fact, a full-blown tribute but rather more of a one-off joke, not unlike the one in the aforementioned “Cleveland.” Too bad. If they can do not one, but several “Star Wars” spoofs, why not aPython tribute? It could be fun seeing the gang speak with terrible British accents!

A full blown Monty Python tribute would be something to see. One of my coworkers at DISH saw the one on the Cleveland show and said the same thing. But after everything is said and done, this was a solid episode and I can’t wait to see what happens on the next. I didn’t get a chance to set it to record because I am out of town, but I am not worried because I have the DISH Hopper. It auto-records the big four network’s prime time shows with its PrimeTime Anytime feature, so now my busy schedule never prevents me from keeping up with TV’s busy schedule. And because it stores those shows for eight days, I can check out my favorites whenever it is convenient for me.
