Ahsan Haque of IGN gave the episode a score of out of 10, commending Chris's storyline and praising Stewie's temporary build, but criticizing the staleness of Meg's continued poor treatment.  Steve Heisler of The . Club gave a much more critical review giving the episode a grade of a C. Heisler stated that neither of the storylines "held any water", because they were "ridiculously short". He also commented: "I'm starting to wonder if this show is even watchable anymore – 18 minutes of filler, 45 seconds of inspired silliness." 
People that say, it's a misguided idea,, do not know how to think outside the box, I can look /listen/ at anything an tell you how to fix it. I play chess with my pc, an beat it all the time, and the reasoning is I do not think logically, like the pc does . it has a set of rules that it was programed with an you were in college, I do not play by the rules, I can play without the when you go the a school that teaches how to think about something, that is all you know how to have had engineers come to my deck, hand me a set of blueprints, because that was the way they were taught. They are never taught to look at it, in there mind to see it working. What I do is show them how wrong they are, an ask them what tool in the world can cut a square hole inside the middle of two long tubes. they can not think outside the box, that they were taught to do.
If was going to tell you about an airplane the TR-3B, it travels a little bit under light speed, an it uses nuclear fusion, which turns into plasma an powers the craft, that was built outside the box. an if you do not believe me type it into your search engine, you can also look it up at the library of congress under new patients. You my brother, do not have the inkling of understanding to think outside the box. that's why you are a psychologist an nothing more.
