WW5 = Winamp5?[edit]

Could Peter's going on about World War 5 being so intense that it skips over 3 and 4, be a reference to Winamp skipping Winamp 4? Probably not, but it just hit me. What do you think? -- (talk) 04:45, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

A source would be needed to add it. CTJF83Talk 15:26, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Erm, no I don't think so. FG is famed for silly and esoteric references but that is just, well, no. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:26, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Need to add a cultural reference to Spike TV[edit]

There should be at least a cultural references section detailing the Spike TV thing. There must be something on Spike TV in this episode page... --Jack Zhang (talk) 21:09, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

You forgot to add in something.[edit]

For the culture section you left out the movie scene where the man playing the trumpet starts playing Chuck Mangione's Feel so Good.

Reference to This is England?[edit]

When Chris is walking down the school hallway with some friends, he acknowledges "Nazi Guy" who looks like one of the characters in that, is this a cultutal reference? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:59, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Reference to She Wants Revenge[edit]

After Louis attempts to console Meg, the music playing at the party is a parody of She Wants Revenge's Killing Time.

I went ahead and published it and it was reverted for unsourced. If you listen to the song on the episode and listen to the track it is just painfully obvious that the lyrics in the Family Guy "Party song" don't even make sense and are just that way to parody She Wants Revenge.--Deadhobo (talk) 14:11, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

You still need a source to include it. Read the first paragraph at WP:V CTJF83Talk 16:49, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

New GAN[edit]

The notice is above. Railer-man (talk) 17:18, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

How can I be of assistance? CTJF83 18:54, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you could review it? Railer-man (talk) 22:07, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
I'm not a huge fan of reviewing articles of projects I'm in...people sometimes have issues with that. But if it isn't done by Tuesday (headed out of town), I'll take a look at it. CTJF83 20:13, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
No need to review it, Ctjf, someone will eventually, and it will avoid a conflict of interest. Gage (talk) 21:50, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Reviewer: Ruby2010 (talk contribs count) 02:42, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:


  • There is one dab link  Done
  • Indicate the series is American in the lead  Done
  • Fox -> Fox network  Done
  • "...and he becomes obsessed with his body." I assume Stewie becomes obsessed with his body. The sentence doesn't really make this clear  Done
  • Add ratings data to lead Not done
  • "Peter takes the injects into Stewie, who becomes incredibly buff and develops an aggressive personality, much to the horror of his family." First part of sentence doesn't make sense. Also, there's a lot of "he"s etc; again make clear Stewie is the one taking the drugs  Done
  • Wikilink Connie D'Amico in lead  Done
  • "She turns to a reluctant Meg, who relents when a javelin thrown by Chris impales her shoulder." Who does the javelin hit?  Done
  • Don't think the "dancing naked" thing should really be wikilinked to Jame Gumb; just expand on it a little more in the cultural refs section  Done
  • Yahoo just lists the crew credits. Nowhere that I can see does it say it was Sulkin's "first episode for the season" or that it was directed "before the conclusion of the seventh production season". TV Guide might have some useful info on the first part. Not done
  • The production section is pretty short; the DVD section shouldn't even be there (move to reception section)  Done
  • "a collection of deleted scenes, a special mini-feature which discussed the process behind animating "Road to the Multiverse", and mini-feature entitled Family Guy Karaoke." Source it  Done
  • Just delete this from guest star section. You're already citing Yahoo, and no guest stars are listed there anyway  Done
  • I think listing the guest stars as actors would be better than individually saying actress ___, actress ___ etc  Done
  • "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show ("Now here's something we hope you'll really like"), She's All That, Michael Vick, and Silence of the Lambs - I don't see these in ref listed  Done
  • There appears to be other cultural refs you could add though ([1]) Not done
  • "...pronunciation of the word in John Mayer's "Your Body Is a Wonderland"[6]." Punctuation goes before ref Not done
  • Use consistent ref formatting  Done
  • Ref 3: add date and author
  • Ref 5, 6, 7, : add dates
  • "Ahsan Haque of IGN gave the episode a score of 8.2 out of 10, calling Chris's storyline "engaging from start to finish" and praising Stewie's temporary build as a "hysterical visual," but criticizing the staleness of Meg's continued poor treatment and the overall condensed feel of Stewie's story, stating that he would have wished it to be more developed and saw it as a missed opportunity for the Stewie of the first couple of seasons back.[5] " Sentence is way too long, verging on a run-on. Split up or add semi-colons  Done
  • "Steve Heisler of The A.V. Club gave a much more critical review giving the episode a grade of a C, which means that it lost against American Dad which got a B-, but it tied with The King of the Hill and Sit Down and Shut Up episodes of the week both of them was graded C, but won to The Simpsons episode which got a C-. " Same with this one  Done
  • The A.V. Club is italicized Not done
  • Sentences with direct quotes need to end with proper citations Not done
  • For Heisler, too many "he" said this. Reuse his name to prevent reader confusion  Done

I believe you can fix these within seven days, so I'll place the review on hold for a week. Regards, Ruby comment! 03:23, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

It has been seven days with no comment back. I'll give you one more day or this review will be failed. Thanks, Ruby comment! 16:37, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Other issues (other than unresolved comments above)[edit]

  • The production section is way too short to adequately cover the topic. I don't feel comfortable promoting this article to GA status.
  • Ref 3: add publisher

Ref 8 and 9: use consistent date formatting

In the future you should respond to GA reviews so that any unresolved issues can be clarified within the designated hold time limit. The concern with the production section is the main reason I am failing this review, though other issues also remain. Feel free to fix up the article and nominate it again at a later date. Best regards, Ruby comment! 04:56, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Reviewer: Gen. Quon (talk · contribs) 05:14, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Image: A) NFCC#8 states that an image should be present "only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding"… This doesn't really help the reader understand the article anymore than words B) It also isn't the subject of critical commentary
  • Lede: Stewie, Peter(also voiced by MacFarlane) -> "Stewie, Peter (also voiced by MacFarlane)" Space between 'Peter' and the parenthesis
  • Lede: Unlink 'criticizm' per OVERLINK
  • Plot: "The Joe and Bonnie host" Kill 'The'
  • Plot: Joe is wikilinked twice in this section. Get rid of the second one
  • Plot: "...while parodying The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show." Move to "cultural references" and add a citation
  • Plot: "Like the season 2 episode "He's Too Sexy for His Fat", the plot-line is never resolved, and his body returns to normal at the end of the episode, with no explanation." Get rid of this, as it does not really add anything to the article
  • Plot: "Stewie then ends the episode by saying 'I Flew Today'". Is this needed?
  • Production: "The role of Kevin Swanson, that has been portrayed by several people including actor Jon Cryer (second season episode "There's Something About Paulie") and by series creator and executive producer Seth MacFarlane (all subsequent appearances, including his first), was…" -> "The role of Kevin Swanson, who had has been portrayed by several people including actor Jon Cryer in the second season episode "There's Something About Paulie" and by series creator and executive producer Seth MacFarlane in all previous and subsequent appearances, was…"
  • Production: Both Lisa Wilhoit and Alex Sulkin are Wikilinked more than one. Remove the subsequent links
  • Cultural references: "Spike TV was also parodied." How was it parodied?
  • Cultural references: Following Silence of the Lambs, there should be a semicolon, and not a comma
  • Cultural references: "poop" -> something more encyclopedic (feces, excrement, etc).
  • Cultural references: Lady and the Tramp should be italicized
  • Cultural references: Add who sang "We Built This City"
  • Cultural references: "He-Man" is the main character. The show is called Masters of the Universe, and should be italicized.
  • Reception: You mention that it dropped slightly from last week. Do you have a citation for last weeks episode?
  • Reception: Explain what a Nielsen rating is (i.e. The episode received a 4.0/6 percent share in the Nielsen Ratings This means that roughly 4.0 percent of all television-equipped households, and 6 percent of households watching television, were tuned in to the episode.)
  • Reception: Add a citation after every direct quotation
  • Reception: Link IGN
  • Reception: Italicize The A.V. Club
  • Reception: "…anymore — 18 minutes…" Remove the spaces around the emdash, or use an endash instead
  • Reception: Always place the title of the episode in quotes, such as in the first sentence of the last paragraph
  • Reception: Family Guy Karaoke should be in quotes
  • References: Use consistent dating methods (either YYYY-MM-DD, or MMMMM DD, YYYY)
  • References: Change 20th Centruy Fox to Fox Broadcasting Company and link
  • References: The publisher for Refs. 2, 3, and 6 should be Yahoo! TV; kill the "Yahoo! TV" bit in the titles
  • References: should use endashes instead of dashes
  • References: in Ref. 4 AV Club should be linked and italicized; should also have proper title (i.e. 'Stew-Rods' | Family Guy | TV Club | TV)
  • References: Do you know who wrote, Ref. 9, or when it was published?
  • References: Link Zap2It
  • References: Ref. 13, AV Club should be italicized

Those are the issues. Fix them and I will pass it. On hold for seven days.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 14:34, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

  • I believe I'm done with everything except the image issue. Do you want me to get rid of it? Pedro J. the rookie 23:53, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
    OK, I made a few changes. Here are a few more issues I found:
  • Make sure you use consistent dating method. That hasn't happened yet
  • For the "The role of Kevin Swanson, who had" paragraph, can you add a citation to show that Cryer and MacFarlane were the voices

That's it.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 03:32, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Dates formatted and eliminated the MacFarlane part since I could not find a reliable source with that info. Pedro J. the rookie 23:28, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Excellent. Passes.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 02:23, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
