    What I liked: Roger yelling to Stan to tell him when it was time for dinner, and Stan thinking that he did not yell to Roger was the reason he was foiling the telethon, the marathon/telethon conversation, Stan not telling his family the truth and Roger attacking him, amongst other things.



    This was really good. It had some great moments. I thought it got kind of boring near the end but it picked back up again at the end. Pretty good and my final grade is going to be a B- or so, I think is fair for this episodemoreless
  • Another classic season 4 episode.

    This episode was soooo funny like when Barry freaked out when Stan overlooked the joke and when Stan told the joke and Barry called him a joke killer was hillarious. Also this is another one of my favorite episodes. It was hillarious when Stan chased Roger and Roger said I expected a much better Chase scene there. Also it was very funny when Stan and Roger were on top of the ledge and Roger fell and everything hit him and got real hurt. Stan and Roger had so many good lines in this episode. Overall an instant classic San and Roger episode.moreless
  • One of the better episodes.

    I liked this one better than most! One of my chief problems with American Dad, is a lot of the time the story lines seem disjointed, go off in different directions and run into dead ends. This episode, however, had it all pretty much together and was genuinely funny to boot. The chemistry was there, and so was the humor. Rodger was at his vindictive best, and most of the gags and bits seemed to work quite well. American Dad seems to be having a much better season than Family Guy for a change, the quality of the episodes seems to be improving markedly as of late.moreless
  • Good episode and had some cool scenes

    7.5
    The episodes was ok, although it was kinda sad that roger wanted revenge on Stan. Either way the episode was great. We saw some old characters like the knight from old episodes that made cameos. The scene where Hailey said what was that? Francine said that is what you have to do to a man when he takes you to a fancy dinner(lol). That was a funny scene indeed. Roger pulling the pranks was also funny. Roger playing the electric piano was funny to. This episode was a good way to end the first half of the season. Still good.moreless
