Did anyone see the recent family guy where brian eats mushrooms and has a bad trip?
It was one of the best depictions of trip I've seen in a cartoon or any show. In the beginning it shows trails on the hands, then colors coming, things melting, everyones face distorting and tearing apart. They also tried to tried to capture the intricate fractalizing effects it has, like peter's double chin turned into two little peters dancing.
The only thing is when brian starts peaking and has a really bad trip and it seems a little overboard. First off brian cuts off his ear, "to stop world war 2 from happening", and bleeds and falls on the ground. This is really not likely to happen, unless you are really insane.
Then brian goes into likes some evil hell type place inside his head, and stewie is the devil, meg is a bug, snakes are coming out of louis eyes and she's saying sexual things as she were a lifeless sex doll, and peters roasting on a flame. Then brian gets thrown into the pits of hell, and he hits the light at the end of the tunnel and wakes up.
Basically its a really really really bad trip. Like you would have to be tripping your balls off and totally just resisting the light to have a trip that bad. I don't know why they don't depict a positive trip, that would be more beneficial to people.
On a last note, brian came out the trip in a positive manner, seemingly humbled by the experience. And at the exact same time of the trip, the family was having there own dispute and troubles that led to a more humble enlightening experience. Which seems to happen sometimes during trips, everything has its way of coming back to its center. A lot of the time if you have intense life changing experience in a trip, others around you have some kind of experience of their own.
My bad if this is kind of long, kind of tipsy
Any thoughts on it?
