That episode was such an awesome indictment of the mob mentality on social media.
Loved it!

There's some strong anti-religious undertones?
If it gets too much for you then I recommend shows like Little House on the Prairie, 7th Heaven, The Waltons, Touched By An Angel, Highway to Heaven etc :p:D

Still watching the show :D Quite happy I stuck to my guns, as apparently this is Fox's highest rated Thursday(after moving from the Sunday slot) show, critics panning the show far and wide, but audiences showing them what to do with their opinions.....gotta love them for that.

If the last EP some how happened here, I would be the first to be "corrected"........

I'm not sure on this last episode, felt a bit like an old TNG episode and it was a bit meh. Still had some good moments, just don't feel it was the best.

I also thought it felt like a TNG episode (doesnt help that I have been rewatching TNG over the last few months). It feels like a tribute to its inspiration and for that MacFarlane should win over a lot of Trekkies.

Yeah the other episodes had mixes of Trek but felt self contained, this one definitely felt TNG :). Will see this week.

Was very impressed with latest. Brilliant use of satire involving social media.

This last episode was decidedly light on comedy and really felt like I was watching a more serious Sci-fi.

Glad I'm not the only one noticing a decline in the comedy in the last episode or 2
