"Everyone but Chris keep your pants on!" Season 9 officially debuted on September 26th. Pretty decent start to the season with a one-hour long episode entitled, "And then there were fewer." which seemed to be a sendup of the popular 1976 comedy, "Murder by Death." I think what really stood out about this episode was how wonderfully animated it was. The episode had a very film-like feel to it both visually and through its dramatic soundtrack. If you watched it in high definition and in 5.1, you really found yourself immersed in the story. However, this week's second episode, "Excellence In Broadcasting," seemed to be quite a letdown, particularly for its subject matter. Still, it's great to have Family Guy back for a new season and I look very much forward to watching and discussing every episode right up through its Star Wars parody finale, "It's A Trap!"
