Agreed...was the bit with Stewie beating up Brian a reference to a movie? I feel like I saw that somewhere...

I thought that was the absolute worst episode of Family Guy I've ever seen. I only came close to laughing once, and that was when Peter was having his Sunday "Porn Time." The rest of the episode was boring. I almost turned it off about halfway through.

It probably doesn't help that I hate the Patriots, and am tired of hearing about Tom Brady (I guess you could say I'm still just a little bitter about the Rams losing to them :) )

Stewie beating up Brian looked like GoodFellas

As for the song... I needed to use Google - Shipoopi comes from The Music Man
Just like Somewhere that's Green done in it's entirety by the dirty old man, so was Shipoopi, including the cheography from the Music Man, it was sung by Buddy Hacket's character in the movie version.

I thought the song was great also - especially the jig where everyone (including the announcers and the 3 guys in the bathroom) were doing it.
It was hilarious, especially when you go back and see Tom Brady specifically tell Peter NOT to showboat right before the dance. Best TD celebration ever.

Sorry, but this was the worst FG episode ever. Not just this season, but EVER. The only saving grace was Brian & Stewie fighting.

As for Shipoopi, I wanted to FF through it after the first 2 minutes, but then I thought, "FG usually delivers on these long term gags". Unfortunately, this one did not. It went on wayyy too long.

Not sure why, but that Harriett Tubman/Gwyneth Paltrow statue thing just killed me. The Stewie beating up Brian stuff made the wife actually turn away - not sure if it was the over-the-top violence or the fact that he's a dog that was bothering her. Odd woman.

pretty weak episode in my opinion. I think I laughed a couple times at the beginning, Peter's porn time and Lois flipping off her mother on TV. But other than that, just very meh. The songs seemed like such a time killer.

I agree it was a weak episode, but it will still remain dear to my heart for one reason .. Betting Fred!! They NEVER show that episode of the Flintstones anymore, for the exact reason Fred says ("Hey, gambling addiction is not funny. Not funny at all.") ... I reference Fred's spastic "Bet? Bet bet bet betBETBETBETBETBET!!!" all the time at the poker tables and no one ever gets it. Lo and behold, the Family Guy writers remember.

I thought this episode was hilarious. Peters "porn time" at the internet cafe will become an instant classic. And when he had his servant clean the sweat from under his man-breast I was laughing out loud.

My wife and I both went to bed singing the Shipoopi song. :)

I can't believe nobody has mentioned, "oh yeah, you're my asian Lois" and when Quagmire went through Peter's trash because Lois clipped her nails - funny stuff. I finally got to watch it live because my wife had already seen desperate housewives.
