"Space Cadet"

How many "jokes about raping children" is too many?

This episode had so much promise in the first act, but then it kind of fizzled. With such a strong start, coupled with the Bob's Burgers joke, I wonder if Family Guy isn't slipping in the ratings in its place right after Bob's Burgers. The time slot right after a strong show is often a terrible one; I have heard it called "the dog walking time slot." You watch a great show, then you go walk the dog during the next show, and come back for the one after that.
