* /{{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...

** {{Hailfire25}}: not to mention treating the kid as if he was furniture.

** {{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.

* Tropers/{{Luna87}}: "The Magnificent Steven" was the point where the show started to suck for me. The main plot I could take or leave, but the subplot is what really pissed me off. So Hayley helps [[JerkSue Roger]] with something (I can't remember what), and, as a result, Roger begins complimenting her more, making Francine jealous. This leads to Hayley and Francine competing for Roger's attention, to the point that they actually get into a physical altercation. It turns out that Roger wanted them to fight so that he could film it and upload it to a website featuring mother/daughter cat fights. And the worst thing about it is that Roger, as usual, [[KarmaHoudini gets off scot-free]]; that sub-plot just ends with him telling the two women [[{{Jerkass}} "Oh, by the way, I'm the prettiest one in the house."]] I think [[FamilyGuy Brian]] might have some competition for biggest JerkSue on a SethMacFarlane show (and even that, I hear, is starting to turn around).

* Tropers/WhizzerMckwoff: "Roy Rogers Mcfreely" had one. There's this guy they're hearing on the radio who is black, and Stan is apparently shocked to find that out. Despite being with several people, he only asks one of the neighbors he's with about it, saying, "Did you expect him to be...?" and points to his face, to which the neighbor says no, and Stan admits he didn't either. What? That's not funny, that's racist! If this was from the writers of FamilyGuy, it would have been a BaitAndSwitch moment where Stan would say something like, "Yeah, I didn't expect him to have that shape of face either."

* Tropers/WhizzerMckwoff: "White Rice". The episode begins surprisingly strongly. It involves Stan and Francine getting into an argument that results in him taking her to a therapist. Only it's not a therapist, it's a ''hypnotist'' he's been taking her to for 19 years! He gets the hypnotist to brainwash her of everything she wants that bothers him, and they go home, as if nothing had happened. Seriously, that's a hilarious storyline! But what happens next? Well, a year later, they go for their annual visit, but the hypnotist causes Francine to wake up and remember everything Stan told him to make her forget just because Stan didn't get him a sandwhich. OK, so the rest of the episode is Francine discovering something she'd been hypnotized to forget, her leaving Stan and him being all apologetic, and it ends with...them discussing the issue originally brought up and Stan finding out it wasn't a big deal. Just...''what?!'' What the hell happened to the hypnotizing storyline? If this was FamilyGuy, it would have ended with Francine being rehypnotized, and Stan continually taking her there. It was such a good storyline, but they had to end it without a good old StatusQuoIsGood moment. Just...why?

* {{Mineburst}}: "Blonde Ambition" had a good enough moral, but despite its DownerEnding, my biggest problem is the episode's beginning. In the same spot Hayley was standing and didn't get a single signature, a blonde girl got hundreds of signatures despite working for a stupid cause (stopping animals from attacking hunters). [[WhatTheHellTownspeople But people pay attention to her just for being a blonde!]] If that wasn't bad enough, two assholes at a bar yell at her because she was about to drink Francine's glass (need to remind them that Francine isn't even an actual blonde), and admit they don't care about upsetting her! Geez, this is something I'd expect from modern FamilyGuy!
