March 12, 2007 - With the help of President Clinton, Peter learns that age is all in the mind. The former President then ends up sleeping with Lois, which leads to Peter wanting to sleep with his mother-in-law to compensate. Despite the effective plot, this week's episode of Family Guy feels a little dry. It's not due to a lack of originality - "Bill and Peter's Bogus Journey" has a few truly hilarious moments, but the main storyline ends up taking a backseat to an overabundance of unfunny "manatee" jokes.
Pointless jokes such as one about a racist sunflower, Stewie using a couple of starfishes to cover his nipples and pretend to be a stripper, or watching Peter destroy Meg's laptop - all fail completely. Compounding the problem of these lame jokes is the fact that the main plot really works well and could have benefited from a little more exposition, or even some more relevant humor.
Especially funny was the thrill ride that Peter and Clinton take which includes a hilarious round of "Dance Dance Revolution" and ultimately degenerates into them both getting stoned and hungry enough to want to capture and eat a live pig. Lois gets upset about Bill Clinton being a bad influence on her husband, and goes to have a talk with him - only to end up succumbing to his Presidential charm and sleep with him. Obvious cigar references aside, it's a hilarious moment, and it plays out remarkably well. More of this type of material and less filler would have really helped this episode.
