From PopKorn Kat :

I know Family Guy isn’t exactly the kind of show to go to if you want a deep, nuanced portrayal of human relationships (episodes like “Brian and Stewie” being rare exceptions). Its characters devolve into walking caricatures more and more with every season, and almost every horrible disaster you can think of has been played for laughs at least once...which makes this, a rare attempt at treating the subject of domestic violence seriously, easily one of the worst episodes in the series. For one, having one of your main characters write a letter essentially berating the victim for not leaving an abusive relationship is not a good look, to say the least. Joe isn’t much better – he claims he can’t take action unless Brenda files a formal complaint...despite Jeff abusing her right in front of everyone’s faces. Maybe this was intended as commentary on how our justice system treats victims of domestic violence, but it just comes off as contrived. The cutaway gags and jokes (which, to their credit, aren’t as abundant as your average Family Guy romp) stick out like a sore thumb among a story that, mind you, is about three guys convincing a domestic abuser to go on a camping trip so they can murder him. No lessons are learned.
