* mysticfire: My DMOS would have to be "Great Space Roaster." I feel like I should explain the episode. It starts out innocently enough with Bullock out of the blue announcing [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseinContext that a CIA family will go to space to study Chia Pets for a year.]] At the same time, Roger announces his displeasure at the Smiths' plan to give him a bowling birthday party for his 1601st birthday (which in this troper's opinion is actually a rather fun way to spend a birthday). They ask him what he wants, and he says he wants a roast, "like all the greats." That's right, he means a roast as in where everyone gathers around to poke fun at the recipient. They ask him at least twice if he's okay with this, and he says it is what he wants. The family then proceeds to give him an admittedly funny roast, and Roger (who has been wearing sunglasses the whole time) reveals that he was crying, feels insulted, and leaves in a huff. Then, in a Roger way, he pretends to turn it all around because of their comments, with the Smiths being [[GenreSavvy understandably suspicious of his true intentions.]] He then spends the remainder of the episode trying to kill the Smiths because his feelings were hurt, and the family actually feels bad for him. Again, he ASKED for this roast. After a couple of failed attempts to murder them, the Smiths become the family to be sent into space. Long story short, Roger follows them there, hunts them down, and then ''forces them to roast each other'' so they would "feel his pain" or something. Then the Smiths are laughing at each other and they're all "Roger was hurt because he feels like we don't love him" or something equally stupid. Conclusion: Roger is once again a despicable KarmaHoudini and we are forced to watch this drivel over Roger's reaction for, once again, ''something that he asked for.''

* Tropers/{{Peridonyx}}: "Dope and Faith". Hoo, boy, where do I begin? From Stan becoming a MoralEventHorizon-crossing {{Yandere}} over such a petty reason -- his new friend's atheism -- to the CriticalResearchFailure of the cliche about suicide automatically equaling eternal damnation, no questions asked -- countless Christians actually do not believe in SuicideIsShameful. As a Christian myself, I actually wanted to [[VideoGame/FZero Falcon Punch]] my TV, and as a pragmatic viewer, this is where I just invoked ScrewThisImOuttaHere from this show.

** {{Hailfire25}}: not to mention treating the kid as if he was furniture. Its so bad that many people believed now that Stan kidnapping Libby away from them earlier in the series was probably the better option.

* /{{Collectionchange}}: "Minstrel Krampus", an episode with the glaringly wrong "aesop" (that they hammer into us repeatedly throughout) that abuse makes kids grow up well, when it has long since been found that it does the exact opposite. Also, the entire plot was absolutely pathetic and unfunny, from beggining to end, including the b-plot of Haley looking for a Christmas gift. Also, I felt that changing Santa from a vengeful antagonist to just a corrupt bastard was a waste, watching Santa return for vengeance for a couple Christmas episodes would've been fun than this. I must admit I like the "Bad Boy Song" though...
