  • TOO CARTOONISH

    2.5
    One main reason I enjoy American Dad over Family Guy is that it is obviously an animated show, but American Dad doesn't need to result to as much "cartoonish" material as Family Guy does. The talking hot tub that is a living entitiy crosses that line, so to speak, and then some. Even though Celo Green does a good job playing the hot tub, it was not enough a save it.moreless

  • What was that?

    1.0
    in order to scale the dizzy heights of comedy

    american dad takes risks.

    This is one of there failures.

    was still waiting for a laugh when the credits roled

  • The ending ruined the score

    9.0
    Plot:Stressed out by his family and his obligations, Stan decides to buy a hot tub to relieve his stress, but gets into hot water when he finds out the hot tub is evil.

    Parts I liked:

    * Principal Lewis crashing Stan's car

    * Principal Lewis' text message

    * Steve appearing in a song saying Hey and then he said that Stan forgot to picks him up at school.

    * Most of the songs were good but one of them a bit too long (even though I mind because the longness in this show doesn't bothers me as much as Family Guy)

    * The ending where Cee Lo Green said "That's it, Stan's dead."

    Parts I disliked:

    * I didn't liked that the hot tub killed Principal Lewis, Francine and Stan. Stan had died a few times in the show (ex. The MostAquatics Christmas, Rapture's Delight)

    Overall score: 9/10moreless
