No. No you don't.

;)

OK, that was just for dramatic effect!

I love the show, but the movie was basically a stunt to sell DVDs that just ties three regular episodes together with a very thin thread. Not saying it isn't very funny! But I was expecting one movie, not three distinct episodes.

Ok, well to be honest, I haven't noticed the Stewie being less evil thing. I've missed most of the new episodes, and the ones I have seen were really funny and distracted me.

Guess I need to pay closer attention ;)

I agree James, that was a silly ploy to sell DVDs. What makes me more upset is I bought that dumb (but great) movie, and then they aired them on TV :shock: what a waste of my money ;)

And I bet they'll be on the season DVD's. So if and when that happens, I'll be buying it all over again ugh! :)

Good thing this has been my only slip up, those single DVDs of Spongbob/Simpsons will never be purchased by me ;)

It wasn't that the "movie" was bad. It was that it was hardly a movie at all. It was pretty good, but as long as you know that it's basically 3 episodes put together.

Nah.... It wasn't that bad, it was just they pumped it up to be such a great movie, than it turns out to be 3 episodes pasted together.

The episodes were all good, and interwoven very well :)

I didn't know that. I thought it was supposedly a "whole new movie" just done for DVD.

That kind of takes away from it, especially that they then cut it up and showed it as three episodes! You'd think they'd keep it together as a special at least.

But I'll throw it on at some point I'm sure...

That's what I thought as well Ben ;)

But when your watching it on DVD, its pretty much kept as a special last I checked.

Its not oddly edited, I mean :?

But when they aired it on tv, they had to.

Its still entertaining, and that's all that matters.

Wow, someone's finally suing them? I'm just surprised it's taken this long. :roll: :wink:

Wow...she looks better in that recent pic than she did in Annie over 25 years ago!

Surprised, as the story says, that a satirist is suing a satirical show, but if she has the right to her character then they should have asked. A lot of people see such recognition as a little boost, but really, they wouldn't like it if someone else started using the Family Guy character in a spoof slot, would they?

Cartoon Brew elaborates and has a pic of the character, and a clip from the show! :)

Two questions I've always had about Family Guy:

1.) What is the "Peter fighting the Chicken" thing a reference to?

2.) Or, for that matter, what the heck is "Peanut Butter and Jelly time"??


If anyone knows, answer is appreciated! :)

Thanks Josh! :)

Finally, my quest to learn just what the heck those words mean is over! :wink:

Its a parody of action movies. Sorry for not noticing your question sooner!

Also, did anyone catch the season finale? It was one of the best episodes ever!! :)
