45 Favorite Episodes: 43

In one of the multiple bottle episodes on this list, Brian and Stewie, an episode of Family Guy, is perhaps the most unconventional one. Bottle episodes used to be made to save money, but that doesn't really apply to animated shows. This one is done for the purpose of character development. I've always felt that the best episodes of Family Guy are the ones with heart and the ones focused around Brian and Stewie and this episode makes that quite literally the title. The gross-out gag is unpleasant, but the ending of the episode and the characterization of Brian is flawless. Seth Macfarlane is a conundrum, but he's a good man.

  1. I agree with you. Family Guy can be fun, funny, irreverent and sometimes just too much. When its heart is in the right place, though, it can be good.
