Storyline

Stewie becomes obsessed with a British TV show on PBS, leading him to decide to ditch his low-class surroundings and go live in England where everyone is cultured and educated. Brian chases him to the airport to stop him, but they inadvertently end up on a flight to the Middle East. Peter and Lois, meanwhile, decide to take a vacation following the rock group Kiss, where Peter discovers a few things about Lois he never suspected.

Goofs

Lois doesn't recognize Gene Simmons with his Kiss makeup on, but when she sees him without his makeup, she recognizes him as an old friend and calls him Chaim. Although Chaim Witz was indeed Gene Simmons' birth name, he changed it when he was a boy to Eugene Klein (later Gene Klein, and finally Gene Simmons). Most likely, Lois was not even born when Simmons went by the name Chaim Witz, and would only have known him by a later name, especially when she was old enough to have slept with him, as she claims to have done.

One of the final adventures of classic FG.
2 July 2017 | by TheCriticSezSee all my reviews

This episode was the last to be produced (but the last-but-two to be broadcast, excluding 'Weinstein) before cancellation.

New episodes are just not so good, but cast your mind back to the year two thousand and two.

Like the initial 'Road to...' episode, this has the required show tunes à la Crosby, Hope and Lamour.

The story is captivating as it cycles back and forth between Brian and Stewie's transcontinental journey and Peter and Lois' journey to a KISS festival without becoming too stale.

I love how the Mother Maggie actress proves that looks can be deceiving by being overwhelmingly rude to Stewie: 'p*** off, you grotty little w***er!'

Anyway, even if you don't laugh much, it's good entertainment from the good old days of FG.
