  • Pretty good

    8.3
    I can't say this is my favorite show. This is definitely not better then Family Guy. I think it's actually better then the new Simpson's though. They got some good humor going on in the show and I guess that's why I manage to tune in every time there is a new episode. I would say the one character that always cracks me up is Roger. He's so weird looking which always makes me laugh. The way he tries to live in a human world is funny. I think Stan is funny as well especially the way he treats his kids.
  • Stan Smith is your average American Dad,with a beautiful wife,liberal daughter and nerdy son,except that he happens to work for the CIA,has an alien living upstairs and a fish that talks with a German accent.

    American Dad is from Seth McFarlene,who also created Family Guy,and it is just as cutting edge,though I dont think it pushes the envelope the way Family Guy does,but the satire is just as biting,and there is more of a political edge to the humor.In some ways it is smarter than Family Guy,and I think its long term potential is more promising,because its on more of an even keel,humor wise,where Family Guy can only push the envelope so far,before it runs of places to push it.In fact,I think American Dad is still getting better while FG is showing signs of running out of gas.
  • Sometimes good. Sometimes just plain weird.

    5.1
    Sometimes this show is funny but other times it is just plain weird. Practically every episode has to do about sex. For the last three weeks American dad episodes were about sex. I'm watching an episode right now. Guess what it is about. Sex. In this episode Stan is trying to make tv cleaner. Well this show is as dirty as a fireplace. But other episodes are gunny like the Camp Refoogee episode. That was hilarious. Roger is always doing something really stupid. Like he tries to become a proffesor at Hailey's College. Overall ok show but really sick
    Peace out.
  • Not as good as family guy, but still very good!

    8.8
    As some of you may know that America Dad came for the creaters of Family Guy. No I think this show is alreight but just alright. Its nowhere near as good as family guy but its stil funny. So the show is weird because one of the main characters is a Fish and another is an alien. This was supposed to make the show funnier but I don't really see it that way, but whatever. So anyway the show is worth it to look at if nothing else is on but this is still average or above average and its funny at times.
  • American Dad rules!

    I first started to watch this show on my DVD and i continue to do so it's a great animated series about a father named Stan who works for the CIA and his wife Francine who constantly whines alot and there's his son Steve who desperately tries to get a girl but fails then there's Hayley the family's 18 year old daughter,Then there's Roger who is an alien but he is still family and then there's Klaus the goldfish who was originally a human but then they switched his brain with a goldfish and he is secretly in love with Francine. What's not to love about this show? This show was OK at first but it got better and better well done to Seth MacFarlane for making another good show and keep up the good work.
  • This show could be so much better

    I don’t hate American Dad, it’s just that it leaves something to be desired. When I watch it, I feel like I’m watching a second rate episode of Family Guy, it’s like all the rejected jokes from Family Guy end up here. The characters, especially Stan, are all too familiar, the only original one that is mildly amusing is the effeminate alien. The fish, contrary to popular belief, is not funny at all, and neither are Stan’s stupid one-liners. How one of the great comics of our time, Seth MacFarlane, is behind such an unfunny show doesn’t make any sense. Oh yeah, before I leave, I read one review by someone who thought Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons & Futurama), and I’d just like to say to him/her, you, are an idiot, thank you, and goodnight.
  • this show is such a copy of family guy. stan what an idiot and the fish is just a copy of the dog and what about that alien loser and the kids need HELP.

    this show is such a copy of family guy. stan what an idiot and the fish is just a copy of the dog and what about that alien loser and the kids need HELP. this so is so past and a cheap version of family guy and is some what similar to the simpsons so i hope it goes away soon it won't be missed at all unless the r fans then they need help more then the show haha haha

    This show is hilaious. I can see why this is one of Fox's Four Fathers of Comedy!I watched the latest episode from 1/7 and it was hilarious. I never stopped laughing. I'm glad Family Guy was almost cancelled or this would've never spawned. Overall Awesome Show! p8qt9n q4tv [8t4v 8ytv 8tvn98ave8n9 8n9 yn8 n8y ga8yn g8yngant4auiht4v jht98nt uihegr8n9ew iuw8y9 tw utw89trui gy89gui t 89g uyg ygrgry89grehug r89gr gry8gr egregre gre8rge g89ngu gren98g re urgegre g8y9eg eg89 uhguge uge9gre hegu eu er8y9gre gr78g hgsryug uegr u 8 hug8u9 gay89are rgy 78y8rg ry7rh 78rg hre7 yr7rf rrae ra87rg rg r 78grgr gry7 erg

  • Wow

    10
    Indeed a great show. Sice the first episode i watched, i knew it would have deserved a perfect score. I say the show rocks, just like the similar shows to it, from simpsons to family guy, but american dad is just better than many similars. None of the other shows i have seen are even similar to this, just for the having an alien in the house. The best part of the show is proabably that having an alien in the house is cool, especially when he drinks gallons of champagne. The boss looking for their alien doesn't even think he is hiding in their house.

    JUST GREAT
  • American dad- an ok show, but way too much like family guy

    8.1
    American dad is a show on fox and its just like family guy. The shows are both really centered around the dads, and both have a talking pet (well roger is an alien, but still). Even though its very similiar to family guy, its still pretty funny and worth the watch sometimes. The one bad thing is that the characters are so much worse in this show. First of all, there is no character like stewie, and bryan is by far a much better character then roger, and Chris is alot more funny then steve. Hayley might be a bit of a better character then meg, but they both arent anything special. Overall, if theres nothing on thats catching your interest, give this show a try because its really not that bad, but it will make you wish that youre watching family guy.
  • American Dad! is another great show from Seth MacFarlane creator of Family Guy.

    8.5
    American Dad! started off really good, but for a few episoded it started to slip like when stan's son got breast implants, which was pretty weird. The last couple of shows however have been some of the best yet. Stan Smith is a great character and is very funny, in my opinion he pretty much carries the show though. Roger who is the alcholic alien that lives with them is also one of the funnier character of the show. Some of the other character are pretty weak like klous their fish, who they could easily do without. Overall Amercan Dad! is still a great show, which i now like more than family guy, which is not as good as it was before it was cancelled.In conclusion American Dad! could be better, but it is still great and will likely continue to improve.
  • American Dad is possibly the worst show on television.

    1.0
    When I watch this show I feel nauseous, and my mind withers as I struggle for sanity. The characters are horribly unoriginal stereotypes, that fail to amuse me nor do they make me laugh. The father Stan Smith, is a pompous wind bag stylized in a overtly exaggerated "red state" mentality. Unfortunately for the viewer, his character is this shows focal point for humor. His constant obsession for control, and concern with "being conservative", is the foundation in which all plot lines are created. His wife Francine, is your basic white bread television house wife modeled after shows of yesteryear, her comedic presence is mostly a model vs. character setting, that hopes for laughter with contradictory actions. Stan's son and daughter, fight as sibling rivals so full of quirk and "inappropriate" actions. The son is a teenage boy who looks up to his father, I think it is implied that we should laugh at his shortcomings and misguided fondness for the opposite sex. Personally I can't feel for this forced humor. Stan's daughter,is a text book liberal hippy chick, so just imagine the conflict, oh the laughter. Basically think Bart and Lisa Simpson but more "cutting edge". The live in talking life form that one would expect from a random and hilarious show is a fish named Klaus, he has a love for Francine, and likes to tell some real zingers, oh and he has the mind of a German ski instructor..ha ha. Rodger is an alien who lives in the attic, he is an alcoholic, I'm almost sure he is a play on homophobia. That being said American Dad sends its viewer on a generic quest for entertainment en locked in pop culture riddled stories. The jokes never stand as firm as they were meant to be placed, and at most times fail to bring out the stereotypical hate monger inside us all. I don't know if this show is meant to be a critique on American life, or if while watching one should critique them self.
  • the best work by matt groening.

    9.8
    this is a truely award winning show. the characters as allways in any matt groening cartoon work so well with eachother. for instance you have steve - stans son who is a geek and trys to wind up his sister. hayleigh - stans daughter who is a serious hippie. francine - stans wife who is a perfectly sculptes underapreciated unambicious house wife. stan - a cia agent who is a ruthless killing machine who puts himself above his familly and trys to run their lives. clouse - a goldfish with the brain of an olympic german skiier. roger - an alien who saved stans life at area 51 and now lives with them who acts like a woman. they all work together really well al it is truthfully the best cartoon i have ever seen!
  • there is no doubt about it this show started off weak but it gets better every week.

    8.5
    At first, I thought this show was just a dumbed down verison of family guy with uninteresting characters, but now in it's second season i have to say this show makes me laugh almost as hard as its mentor. stan is absolutely hilarious, a conservative CIA member who reminds me of all the people i hate in america. he's really gullible and will believe anything he is told. he's also a moron, but in a different way than peter griffin. the show has become more fresh. one problem i still have with this show is roger. he really isn't funny. i can tell they're trying to make him funny, but he just isn't. hayley isn't as funny as meg, only because she isn't easily made fun of.

    i will continue to watch this show every week with simpsons and family guy as it gets better and better.

    quote of the series: "haha! that IS so raven!" - stan
  • American Dad: A Good Animation Show

    9.1
    American Dad follows the life of an CIA agent and his family. Coming from the creator of Family Guy, one of the best animation projects in history. American Dad is a show that I watched regularly before but became uninterested and now I watch very seldom. It sort of reminds me of a terrible clone of Family Guy. FOX should just stick with cartoons like The Simpsons, Family Guy, and King of the Hill. The alien on AD is so freaky and isn't funny at all. The gold fish is just I can't find the words. The first season was excellent but the second season should be the last.
  • Started off awesome...

    8.0
    This show was insane when it first started..I had found myself a regular watcher. Being a huge fan of Family Guy and Seth McFarlane\'s work I had found myself being drawn into this show very quickly. With a hilarious cast and a very \"average\" family, Seth began this project on the uphill side. However he set the bar too high for the show and it has seemed to start disappointing a few. I find that it just seems to be going downhill ever since season 2 started...However being a huge fan of Seth\'s work, Im sticking by this show as I can tell it will pick up very shortly...
  • BRILLANT SHOW!!!

    9.9
    This is such a brillant show one of the best comedies i've ever seen in my life. The stupidity of the comedy heightens it's enjoyability. You never know what will happen next because it is truly funny. FOR MAKING A SHOW LIKE THIS, I SALUTE YOU. Every episode is a joy to watch and has me in stiches. I am truly glad to say that i am a fan of the amazing, it is brilant, the best the best the best, it is brillant, it is brillant P.S brillant

  • MAD!!!

    10
    100% Americana.
    This show is truly what we Britain’s think of America. (well me for a instance) American Dad shows the true underbelly of America but showing it in a humorous light and showing it as dank or dark as it maybe is.
    American Dad is really funny in a animated/reality kind of way. Aliens, Yummy Mummy’s, and a Dad that just really does love his country probably a bit too much is the ingredients for a really wacky look on today’s political status and the traditions on Americas views of thing in other country’s business which is a s funny as these writers portray...xxx
  • American Dad skewers family, work and general American culture in an extremely hysterical fashion. Each character has its sitcome-esque place, including the \\\"pet\\\" goldfish bitter sarcasm of Roger, the alien.

    9.5
    Roger, Roger, Roger... :-)Makes me laugh outloud every ep! This show is awesomely funny and VERY underrated. American Dad and Drawn Together are not only my favorite shows on television, but they skewer everything (albeit in extremely different fashions) without looking back and I love that. Every character in AD is pitch on, down to Patrick Stewarts voiceovers, its great to see or hear actors not taking themselves as seriously as people might expect. If youve never watched the show and have a... slightly or quite jaded view of American culture, this is the show for you... I would give this a perfect 10, but only if there were more of Roger in each episode.
  • First it scared me

    9.2
    I watched the Show's premiere and I wasn't sure if it was going to stay around too long but now I've completly fallen in love with it! I watch it every chance I get and I enjoy it more than my old favourites which I never thought possible. It's joke are hillarious and being a Canadian the show is hideously "American" you see so many shows that stereotype the Canadian and now finally a show to stereoype the American. (Not a bad thing). I stay up the extra half an hour to laugh my butt off while thinking I can't believe they get away with this stuff.
  • American Dad!

    9.6
    Just a very very very funny show about a FBI agent and his family.... sounds good right ?? :) Well acctually it gets weirder because the agent (Stan) is always really overreacting like when toast poofs out of the toaster he shoots it 20 times with his handgun or the german goldfish that wants do do things with the mom (Francine) They\'ve also got a cool alien called Rodger that is a alcoholic and always watches weird stuff on tv, brilliant how did they think of it :D. And let\'s not forget about the 2 kids, Hailey and Steve ... Hailey is a hippy and Steve is just a nerd that wants to have a \'hot\' girlfriend
    Enjoy the show :)

  • This family's crazy and I love it!

    9.0
    American Dad is hilarious, I got into this when my brother told me about it, the first time I've watched it I thought it was like Family guy but it's a lot funnier.

    Some peoples dislike it because how Stan is acting (the way I would definitely act) and the 5-members family thing coming in action again, but a lot of Americans will sometimes dislike it because it shows and tells real facts about peoples of the United States that they cannot face, it is understandable but it doesn't take away the fact that it is very funny, it's only a show and it is there to make us laugh, it made me laugh and I hope this show won't die soon and they will let them write many more episodes.

    American Dad rocks!
  • Funny animated show about an all-American family.

    9.1
    Great show with a heck of a lot insane jokes by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. This is a great show with a heck of a lot insane jokes by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. It's great to see what can go wrong in a 'typical' American family with a red-state, conservative CIA agent as their patriarch. Stan Smith is just hilarious!


    I love to see that American Dad is returning. It will at least be on the air through the 2007/08 season.

    At all people out there who do not like 'American Dad': No one forces you to watch it! Just change the channel if you don't like it!
  • this show is so freaking funny.i could watch it everyday.stan is funny.he's the one who makes the show.i would say its almost up there with family guy.it funny with the stuff they be coming up with in that show.and the alien is so gay but at the same time

  • I think American Dad is actually a pretty good cartoon

    8.0
    As we all know, Seth MacFarlane is one to take jokes and things overboard. I like American Dad though. This is one of the first cartoons to ever introduce a family and thir issues with their Political and comunizism crazed Father and/or Husband. Overall, the shows plot was basically another way for Seth Mac Falrlane to earn more easy money. All he did was take the Family Guy Family and spruce it up. That wouldn't be my favorite idea wen it comes to trying to win over viewers, as they may feel that's just pitiful and lazy. However, the animation is excellent, although not much differnt from Family Guy's, and I love the stupidity released on the show.
  • The creators of Family Guy have made a new show, and this time it's actually good!

    9.6
    American Dad! is about a man named Stan Smith who works for the CIA. He has a wife named Francine, a teenage son named Steve, and a daughter name Hayley. Stan and his family hide Roger, a alien who saved Stan's life in Area 51. They also have a talking fish who was a german guy, but his brain was put in the fish. Steve is unpopular and he and his friends are geeks. Hayley is a typical b***** teenager that cares from the environment. On each episode, Stan faces problems wetcher their with the CIA, his family, or being is Arabia. Awsome show that is much better than Family Guy!
  • American Dad is fun to watch.

    8.0
    I love watching American Dad. Its a very funny show. We have got Stan who works for the goverment his Wife just a stay at home kind that talks to a fish and the rest of the family u see. Stan has to do a lot of missions and stuff and its way funny, I like this show alomost as much as Futurama but not quite it doesn't surprise me though that this show is good because who directes it, Seth Macfarlane is a genius he has made countless Tv shows and made them into a success give it a couple more years and this show might become one.
