Title[edit]

It is Roads to Vegas. Copyright database lists it as such as well as the title card in the episode itself. --Angry Dad (talk) 02:26, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

    Yeah. I didn't upload that, and Jclemens has already tagged it for removal. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 22:47, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
    I think you meant User:J Milburn, rather than me. Jclemens (talk) 17:02, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
    I was tired. Sorry J Milburn! Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 17:22, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
Plot
  • I don't suppose Dion's show, Celine, is mentioned by name in the episode?
  • "Stewie decides to use the new teleportation device" - makes it sound as though Brian didn't use it. If not, why is he duplicated?
  • What does "Checking in a casino" mean?
  • "their luck makes itself present immediately with Brian hitting a big jackpot" - how about 'Brian wins a large jackpot'
  • "First pair" and "second pair" and "lucky pair" and "unlucky pair" are confusing. I'm not sure which is which, and which travelled by teleportation and which by air.
  • Alright, I've cleaned it up. Let me know if you have any issues with the way it's currently worded. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 22:45, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Production and development

"Directed by Greg Colton, the episode is Colton's fourth Road to... episode to direct..." - choppy. How about 'The episode was directed by Greg Colton, who had previously directed "Road to Germany", "Road to the Multiverse" and "Road to the North Pole".'?

  • I used a slight variation of your sentence, to show that the episode were still "Road to" episodes. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 22:45, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
  • "The episode was revealed as the finale of the series' eleventh season with the premiere of "No Country Club for Old Men"." - I read the sources as saying this episode was the penultimate one, and "No Country Club for Old Men" was the finale, but they were aired one after the other.

I am placing the review on hold until these points are addressed. Adabow (talk) 22:25, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

I fixed them to the best of my abilities. Let me know what you think. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 22:45, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Much better. I wonder if you could mention somewhere that this episode and "No Country Club for Old Men" were aired back-to-back and together made the season "double episode" finale. Adabow (talk) 23:40, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
I've added it into the lead and the production and development section. I think that's what you wanted. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:47, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Excellent. Passing now. Well done! Adabow (talk) 00:01, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
