    Oh, those gym coaches.


    This episode is actually working out as a Meg-centric one.


    Stewie dancing to Katy Perry made me bust out laughing.

    I was surprised how close they stuck to the original movie in both story and settings. All that was missing were jabs on Neeson's unstoppable clean gateways on breaking the law and the film's rushed Disney ending.

    Taken I found average at best, but it's the sort of film that deserves more parodies. So yes, 'twas a good episode.

    I wish I'd remembered Taken was a movie at all. Silly me thought they were doing an original plot....

    One thing I've noticed is that the family actually shows compassion for Meg in the Meg-centric episodes. It's mainly episodes that don't directly involve her where she's used as the punching bag. Anyone else notice this?

    You and me both. Before I read Astrolupine's post, I was thinking that this was an original idea. Though I'm sure the car chase was used in many movies though, without the car chase GPS. Lol.

    When did that happen? I thought Connie only appeared at the beginning. Was there a tag scene that wasn't shown in my area? I'm really curious now.

    Jauc Hammer got me good. Uhuhuhuhuh!

    The police officers explaining the situation to Lois and Peter about how quickly Meg's situation could get bad and how long it would be before they would do anything was unnervingly funny.

    Peter's instructions to Meg were a good poke at movies and TV shows depicted a kidnapping situation where the victim does all the wrong things.
