Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Again and again and again and again...

After watching nine episodes in three days, we finally finished Firefly and I know C. summed it up best when she said: "AGAIN!"

Family Guy Presents: Stewie Griffin - The Untold Story feels like an especially long episode, which is an odd sensation. The rhythm of a 24-minute television show is stamped indelibly on my mind, so when the movie kept drawing out the second act, it put me little off balance. Each gag just kept seguing into the next without really advancing the story at all; it was like being caught in a comic limbo. It's not an unpleasant feeling, but an odd one.

Capsule review: if you like Family Guy, this is a must-see. A lot of the jokes fall flat, but there are some gems. If you dislike Family Guy, this won't change your mind.
