Be Careful What You Fish For
This week’s episode of “Family Guy” was for fans who find Ricky Gervais annoying. Rather than go for the kind of sharp humor that’s made him a favorite — though not by all — of the Golden Globes in recent years, Gervais instead sticks with aquatic puns, laughing more at his own fishy jokes than anyone else save Peter. Our main storyline starts with an ocean liner shipping Mercedes cars sinking off the coast of Rhode Island, which gives Peter the idea to go fish for one. But when he attempts to do so, he just ends up catching a talking dolphin named Billy Finn, who is voiced by Ricky Gervais.
Peter, Quagmire, and Joe go out on a boat in hopes of retrieving a free sunken Mercedes from a recent shipping accident, but instead accidentally snare Billy Finn, the talking dolphin. When Billy dives to retrieve a Mercedes hood ornament for Peter, it’s only natural to assume the three guys would talk about how they’re either hallucinating or witnesses the miracle of a talking dolphin, but instead Family Guy sidesteps the obvious and completely ignores that potential. Billy is a talking dolphin, he can show up at the Griffins’ and become a terrible houseguest, sitting around because his wife kicked him out of the ocean.
Talking animals are nothing new on Seth MacFarlane shows (Brian here, Klaus in “American Dad,” the bear in “The Cleveland Show”), but there’s something about seeing a dolphin, voiced by Gervais, standing at the Griffins’ front door that sort of makes you go “huh?” which then leads you to ignore the rest of the scene because you’re thinking to yourself, “Do all animals on this show talk? No, I’ve seen some that don’t. Can dolphins survive on land? I guess they breathe through blowholes, so… well, but it seems like they would dry up. Hmm. Wait, what’s going on in this scene?”

Family Guy S10E14: Be Careful What You Fish For
Brian and Stewie’s storyline isn’t anything new, either. It starts out with Brian hearing worse and worse things about Stewie’s preschool teacher, who apparently chains the kids to the sink, leaves them unattended for hours at a time, only feeds them leftover Baja Fresh, and leaves guns and knives lying around for the kids to play with.
Before the joke can even hit, you know exactly what’s going to happen: Brian will meet the teacher, she’ll be very attractive, and Brian will suddenly ignore the horrible problems in front of him. I suppose it’s a testament to the strong characters on this show that we know what’s going to happen, but let’s put Brian in a new situation, eh? One where we learn something new about him?
Meanwhile, Stewie goes to a daycare run by a completely oblivious and neglectful young woman. When Brian picks him up and notices paint all over Stewie’s face, then sees the condition of the rest of the kids in the rather lawless house, he’s resolute to put a stop to the whole thing, until he sees the woman who runs the place sunbathing in a bikini out back and changes his tune. A few weeks ago Brian was lying while wooing a blind woman who hated dogs, and that episode almost pulled some sincerity before it went south in the third act. Here, it’s unsatisfying from the beginning, as Brian ignores the terrible conditions at the daycare while attempting to ingratiate himself with Miss Emily. The mishaps with the kids and Brian’s desperation to keep Stewie from taking Emily away from him are mildly funny, but once he finds out she has a boyfriend he just turns her in, and the B-plot ends abruptly.
While this was happening, Brian was proving what a terrible guardian he would be. After discovering that the daycare Stewie is staying at is about as horrible and dangerous a place as possible, his intentions to shut it down are stopped when he realizes she’s a hot chick. He continues to subject Stewie and the other kids in her care to the horrifically abusive environment up to the point he discovers she has a boyfriend. Then, suddenly, his righteous anger comes through and he has her arrested. Certainly not behavior to emulate or aspire to.
