YMMV: Family Guy S 7 E 11 Not All Dogs Go To Heaven
  • Anvilicious: This episode is loathed by many for essentially stating that the religious (especially Christians) are all book burners who hate athiests, and that God does not exist because of Meg's Butt Monkey status.
    • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Though some argue that the episode nevertheless does make some very good points about religion that needed to be said, such as too much fundamentalism and irrationality in religion being a bad thing (i.e. the Westboro Baptist Church, Salem Witch Trials and so forth). note 
  • Critical Dissonance: While most critics most thought it was So Okay, It's Average (they hated the main story because it focused on Meg, but loved the Star Trek story and some of the jokes), it's considered by other fans to be one of the worst episode of the show. As for Seth MacFarlane and the writers, it's a mixed bag. Seth MacFarlane thought Brian's end speech made a good point (albeit a little heavy-handed), while the writers were uneasy as they felt it went against their religion (Catholic). However, all three of them agree that they did their best to make the religion vs. atheism argument even-handed and don't really understand why people thought it was so one-sided.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: This episode basically tells people that it is wrong for them to practice religion.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The scene of Brian's Prius being thrown through the house is a little more disturbing given the news of Toyotas being recalled for faulty brakes (for those who don't know, Prius is part of the Toyota brand).
  • Ho Yay:
    Brian: Are you queer?
    Stewie: Probably.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Brian, since his treatment initially was a tad unfair.
  • The Woobie: Meg.
