2. "Death Is a Bitch" -- "Family Guy." It's not poignant, touching or meaningful. It's just funny. When a skeletal Death sarcastically introduces himself as Calista Flockhart, we know we're in for a nasty, hilarious ride. There are porn jokes, necrophilia jokes and Stewie-trying-to-kill-his-mom jokes. And when Meg suggests to Death that he kill all the girls who are prettier than her, Death replies, "Well, that would just leave England." In the main plot, Peter, filling in for Death, who has a sprained ankle, is ordered to kill the cast of "Dawson's Creek." Peter refuses because he would have nothing to watch on Wednesday nights, "except the fine programs on Fox."
