    After Roger and Francine are victims of a mugging, Roger joins the police academy so he can learn how to defend himself and his loved ones, but he falls in with a corrupt cop who leads him astray. Meanwhile, Hayley's new friendship threatens her long-term relationship. I thought this was a superb episode of American Dad. My score is lower because some were boring and Hayley's plot was a little boring. Other than that, the episode was pretty much good. It had some laughs such as Klaus' cameo, Roger not doing well at the police academy, Roger saying if you're happy and you know clap your hands, Barry does so, Snot cries, Roger as a dirty cop[, Stan's phone call to Bullock ("no it's not nude picture."), and the ending. Overall, a superb episode. 9/10moreless
  • One of the best episodes.

  • Roger Grows a Conscience in This Episode.

    10
    I was waiting for them to produce an episode like this ever since this series began. After fleeing while Francine gets robbed like a coward, a disgraced Roger decides to redeem himself by joining the police force and catching the robber. At first, he acts in form by helping out a crooked cop; however, he makes up for it by saving Stan's life for the third time when the cooked cop tries to kill him for knowing too much.



    It was getting pretty agravating seeing Roger as a sociopath as he commits crime after sin and getting away from it more often than not. I wanted to see him get his commupence more often or at least show he has some shred of a conscinece. He did in this episode re-affirming my belief that there is some bit of goodnes in everyone. An excellent installment.moreless
  • Cops and Roger

    7.5
    Finally American Dad is back! After a two month hiatus and FOX introducing another awful sitcom in Sons of Tuscon, the best animated show on TV returned with fresh episodes to the 9:30 PM slot on Sunday.



    And the show returned with a pretty good episode to boot as well. A Roger-centric episode doesn't sound too promising with the way the character has regressed the past few seasons, but this was a funny one tonight. Plus, you're guaranteed to laugh at a character voiced by Seth MacFarlane, so it can't be all bad.



    The ending sequence with the flying elbow busting open the guy's head was a little bit weird, but the comedy was excellent here, and this show's action scenes have always been a tad askew, to say the last.



    The koala was awesome again this week. Had to point that out too.moreless
