YMMV / Family Guy S 8 E 11 Dial Meg For Murder

  • Back to main page here.

  • Awesome Moments: Meg finally getting revenge, while brutal, was pretty sweet.
  • Foe Yay/Les Yay: Meg giving an unconscious Connie a deep kiss, though the kiss is less erotic and more Fan Disservice, as Meg did that solely to humiliate Connie (plus, Connie was unconscious from being beaten, so it wasn't consensual).
  • Heartwarming Moments: Brian stops Meg from robbing Mort Goldman's pharmacy by reading his kind Teen People article he wrote about her, describing her as "far sweeter and kinder than the typical American girl." Meg is moved by this and reverts back to her old self.
  • Hilarity Ensues: The bull raping Peter scene:
    • You'd think: That the rodeo officials would immediately shoot and kill the bull.
    • Instead: The bull is allowed to complete his act, and nobody does anything.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Sure, Lois scolding Meg for dating a criminal wasn't too bad, since criminals can be dangerous..but when Meg was under arrest for harboring said criminal when he escaped, Lois never bothered to stand up for her. Worse, it's implied that Lois (and by extension, the rest of the Griffin family) never bothered to visit her. It's a miracle Meg didn't disown or even kill her mother for this.
  • Strawman Has a Point: Lois wasn't too far off when she scolds Meg for being in love with a convict. As far as she knows, he could just be acting gently to win her over. Did she go overboard with it? Sure, but still.
  • The Woobie: Meg. She's more of a woobie only in this episode since she is the one always abused and bullied by almost everyone around her. She only did her actions out of revenge, rather than being a jerk.
