Entering its 15th season in the States, Family Guy continues to entertain its die-hard fan base with razor-sharp humour, spot-on parodies, spectacular animation and orchestra-backed original music.
In tonight’s episode ‘Pilling Them Softly’ (S14E01) Lois picks up Stewie from daycare only to be told be the teacher that he seems to have an attention problem and suggests medicating him. Dr. Hartman diagnoses him with ADD and prescribes Adderall, which mellows him out considerably, to the point of catatonia. Brian is outraged… until Meg tells him that college students take Adderall to help them focus. Brian takes Stewie’s pills and ends up writing a 2000-page proposal for a fantasy series to pitch to author George R.R. Martin at a book convention.
Meanwhile, when Quagmire demonstrates his cooking skills, everyone suggests he apply for a job as the new host of the local cooking show. Peter goes with him to cheer him on, and ends up getting hired along with Quagmire as his “hilarious” sidekick. However, when Quagmire has had enough of his antics and fires him, the network gives him his own show. When an outraged Quagmire insists there isn’t room at the network for both of them, the two compete, Iron Chef-style, to determine which of them gets to keep their show.
