First there were the simpsons, but the show became same old joke over and over again( which is not surprising i mean 18 seasons), than there were futurama which unfortunately ended and southpark which had lost there edge somewhere along the way. Right now it's definately time for the American Dad and Drawn together. They are edgy, filled with a black humour , really funny. Stan of arabia is definately one of the best things i saw lately. Nice Characters, especially Stan, Francine and Rojer, and funny plots. I especially liked the golden poo plot. In any case, it seems like a nice show, and i really hope that it won't change in the near future.
Crude humor is not funny. Laughing at people defile everything that moral, saner and more tempered people hold sacred is merely passive-agressive hatred reigned in for 'our' enjoyment. A show like this feeds on the underbelly of society and adds nothing to the overall perspectives of society. This show falls into the category of "If you have nothing nice to draw, ...".
I think American Dad! is a better hit TV show than Family Guy. This 2nd making Family Guy series does not suck, because, they don't have no stupid clips, no gay episodes, of no gay lines, the characters are down right better than Family Guy's characters. I hope it stays on more than Family Guy does. Family Guy sucks big time! They have boring plots, the clips are not even funny anymore, and worst of all, the characters have lost all meaning, they don't have all the old characters anymore, and so Family Guy is just DEAD NOW! I only liked the earlier seasons, like 1-3, after that, I think it's the gayest show ever, good job American Dad! show Family Guy who runs the show.
Seth MacFarlane is a creative genius, no doubt about that...but this show simply isnt living up to his own standards...i dont know why... there is nothing special about it. it has its funny moments, but it isnt enough...its like Family guy, but less humorous. Nevertheless, im a fan of this show and i support it...we should also remember that it is currently only in its second season...Family guy got my vote as one of the best humor/animated shows ever first in its third season...so well have to wait n' see what the future brings, untill then i will keep watching, and keep laughing
this is fabulos show of a crazy american family with a goldfish with a german guys brain and an alien for pets. this is a faboulus show and is a must see. if u havent seen american dad then u dont no the meaning of life. american dad is a marvolus show and should be watch 4 most people.
I think this show isn\\\\\\\'t funny I saw the first episode the night it aired after the super bowl. I thought it was going to be funny but it was a complete waste of my time. I swear all of my friends were partys for the superbowl and I was watching this crappy show. It was stupid, idiotic, no really storyline, I\\\\\\\'d rather watch Sunday Mass on DVD even though i\\\\\\\'m not Catholic, and above all NOT FUNNY!!! I remember they have a alien living with them? why and that dad is stupid one of the very first scenes was the dad shooting something and i\\\\\\\'m soppossed to laught I think not Replace this show with something better like Malcom.
From the makers of Family Guy American Dad is about Stan Smith who works for the CIA and his family as well as his pet fish and alien. Much of the humour revolves around Stan's job as well as his family whitch is always good for a laugh or two.
What a awesmoe show. One of the best shows ever to run on TV. Funny, yet doesn't include what most of Foxs shows have... sex. It is pretty funny, Stan working at the CIA (well I dunno if thats the name, sort of got mixed up). But it is preety funny. I think that unlike Futurama or Family Guy the show won't get canceled at all, I don't see why there isn't that muchpopularity on this show though. It is very funny. Even though it seems good, it still has guns, lots of gun. But it's not like... if your kids watch they'll kill someone.
This show is a waste of a timeslot. I think the directors and writers went too far and they should just stick with ‘Family Guy’. There’s no point in the story, just a dad in the CIA who come home to his wife and kids and Roger. It’s the same story every time. The show is just a rip off of ‘Family Guy’ Same type of family, and every thing else, only worst. I would like to see this show cancelled and put on a better show. ‘Family Guy is good enough’ American dad is just full of racial slurs and violence. Sometimes I can’t stand to watch it. So this show gets thumbs down from me
I watched American Dad the first time it aired on FOX and well to be honest I wasn't very impressed. Now, though its humor has improved and is now a great show. You can always count on American Dad to provide you with great political humor and just plain funny moments. Sadly, it seems as though this show is underappreciated because it is created by Seth MacFarlane (the creator another FOX show, Family Guy)and it is often accused of being a rip off of Family Guy (which is doubly worse considering that Family Guy is often accused of ripping off of The Simpsons). American Dad has to be one of my personal favorites and is top notch among adult cartoons.
American Dad is a completely original and innovative way not only for american cartoons but for america to look at itself.
This is complete satire with a bite just like family guy but a total other family with a very different story and storyline to follow. Do a dance make a little love hey lets get down tonight lets get down tonight!
There is a gold fish that i must tell you about ok, well he's not really a gold fish at all but a germany solider for the big world war 2. He's got a insane clown posse Crush on the women of the house Francine, how they came into possesion of this fish I'm not 100% sure but he is just a riot and so this the alien that squits stuff all over the place and has babies with just about anyone. Check it out its that outragous type of funny!
Although American Dad is great for some laughs, it seemed at first like the product of a marketing analysis intended to retread the parts of Family Guy that worked into a new package, with some roles recast (opinionated dog = snarky alien!) or reversed (the dullard son is now a bookworm!). After sticking with the show through its first season, however, I can appreciate the younger show on its own merits. The title says it all: American Dad focuses on the difficult role of fathers (and figures of authority in general) in modern society as well as our culture’s interactions with the rest of the world. Of course, that generalization does little to credit the show’s expertly irreverent approach to such issues, as it mixes them in with picaresque subplots that also address anything from nerdiness (any episode involving son Steve’s attempts at inclusion) to identity (like the beautiful Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? parody in the season two premiere).
However, if I compare American Dad and Family Guy according to the number of times during each episode that I laugh until I can’t breathe, the Griffin clan wins by a massive lead. I enjoy this show enough to keep tuning in each week, particularly since it’s nestled nicely between The Simpsons and Family Guy.
Seth McFarlane has done it again. This show is great. I thought that Family Guy was one of a kind until I saw this show. American Dad isn't as good as Family Guy but it's a hell of a lot better then other shows (I could name but I won't).
It's original (yes original! What other cartoons have a mental C.I.A agent as the head of the family and pull it off like American Dad?), it's quirky and freakin hilarious!! Stan Smith, his family, his talking goldfish and Roger the alien are soo funny to watch.
If you like Family Guy, The Simpsons or any other off the wall television shows then you are going to LOVE American Dad.
From the creators of Family Guy, this animated sitcom follows the antics of Stan Smith, a CIA employee and his hodge-podge of family members, neighbors and co-workers. A goodhearted romp through teenage angst, Area 51, brain transplantees, etc.
American Dad shows us all what is missing in modern day television: Patriotism, Family Values, and government secrets : )
Stan Smith, the head of this oddball clan and CIA agent is a real man's man complete with the barrel chest and cleft chin. His wife Francine stays at home with their maniacal toddler son (Stewie) and a permanent houseguest on the lamb from Area 51. Their two teenagers (Meg and Chris) are at the height of hilarity when they bicker incessantly at the breakfast table, in the living room - basically they fight anytime they're in close proximity. No spoilers here; tune-in for a fun ride folks~
The first season was good, almost as good as the new Family Guy Season. Now, during it's new season, it is almost unwatchable. I have seen EVERY American Dad episode so far, and it has definitely gone downhill. It better get funnier. If not, I hope it get cancelled within a few seasons and they concentrate on Family Guy more. Actually, they should do that anyway.
The plot of the show is the stupid lifes of CIA agent Stan Smith and his family. As seeing this was from the creative minds of the team at Family Guy I had high hopes for this show. I was hoping it to be a huge political satire but thers few satirical jokes throughout the show otherwise the jokes are bland and sometimes sexist which those jokes are just tastless. In quick terms it needs to be canceled NOW!!!
American Dad...... We'll story is about some overpatriotic guy who works at the CIA, wife is a sterotypical housewife,has a tree-hugging daughter and some dork of a son. and he also assumes all muslims and arabs are terrorists. That screams rascist. That episode was unbearable to watch. The only reason i watched it was because my other siblings insisted on watching this show.
This show fails on good storylines and untilmately fils at delivering funny lines and lots that are recycled and used for other episodes. If it wasn't for family guy's raving success, this show wouldn't last a season. It would definately not work as a stand-alone show. American dad also seems to copy Family guy by having some sort of talking animal but instead it's a talking fish (how origional!) the fish is a german and has a raving attraction to the wife. Not to metion the alien! Wow!
So if you know what's good for you, don't watch this show, I say give it a few more episodes and i'm sure a lawsuit will float up because of some outrageously rascist or steretypical remark and it's then Bye bye American Dad, then finally something good will come out of the already pathetic mockery of society, the CIA and I say this as a canadian, the US!
It mainly has relevant humor of shows like King of the Hill and The Simpsons, but it's humor level is more of that like Family Guy and South Park, which are higher. In the situations that take place in the show, all of the main characters basicaly have their own point of view of it, if not, agree with one of the others. Hayley and Stan represent the two extremes, Hayley on the far left and Stan on the Far Right. They get the idea that their side is always right, and the other is always wrong.
The others however fall in between, Francine and Roger near the midle but slightly tilted to the left but still agree with some points the right presents. Stan and Klaus at near the center as well, but slightly tilted to the right, and also agree with what the left says.
What ends up as being right or wrong depends on the situation, what happens in the episode, and what the characters are willing to do to prove they are right.
At first, i wasnt sure if id lke it. i thought that it would just bee an okey show..n then when i actualee watchd it i reli lked it. its funi, n i enjoy watching it. i luv watching it on sundays along with the simpsons, n family guy. what can i say..i stil luv mi cartoons, i dont care what anyone says..they rock! lol wel anyways..if you watch family guy or the simpsons, im pretty sure you wil lke this show..its good!
This show is so bad that it's almost like it's bad on purpose. It's just a lame attempt to reuse the formula that worked with Family Guy, but sadly it doesn't work here. The entire family is annoying, even the alien. Excuse me, especially the alien. And the whole idea of a right wing parent clashing with their left wing kid, LAME. I think we've all seen (and in most cases, enjoyed) that premise before, because All In The Family was a great show. But this isn't. The only reason I scored it as high as a three is that I think it could perhaps with time improve to something watchable. It's certainly done nicely to leave lots of room for improvement.
I was really excited for this show when it first came out. It seemed like Family Guy and I like Family Guy. It was like Family Guy, A lot like it....almost too much like it. I like the show; I would like to see it go in a new direction. Maybe fall away from the similarities of Family guy and make up its own humor that might actually work. The most entertaining part of the show would be Roger the "metro sexual" alien living hidden from the rest of the world. I probably watch the show mainly for him. Closing I would like to say that this is a great show with great potential but really needs to branch out on its own and who knows it could be an even bigger hit.
To be completely honest i watched this show a few times and i said to myself "What the hell were they thinking by puting this show on television". It might be that im Canadian but i know alot of USA and this show isn't at all funny. The jokes suck, the characters are brutally ugly, a drinking alien and a talking fish it could be funny but it isn't.
What i would recommend is to fire those crappy writers and get the family guy writers in here.
One day this show was on and nothing else was... maybe that's why it's still on the air?
American dad has got what it takes to compete with the big boys of American animation. Personallly i believe it to be on a par with The Simpsons at the top of the table. It has a great combination of politics and family humour creating an amzing show that gets you searching through the listings for the next episode and cancelling your date and unplugging the phone. The strong characters and the great story lines all add to this with the lead character of Stan Smith backed up with his family of a nerdy son, liberal daughter and his housewife all important characters in the show. It's a must see! Enjoy!
american dad comes from the creator of family guy seth mc farland or something like that anyway. it is about a father who works for the CIA it is hilarious and it is very much like family guy. the episode were his daughter dies her hair green is one of my favourite episodes and i also like the episode were his wife francine loses her memory. he lives with his wife. his son. his daughter. a talking alien from outer space and a talking goldfish. the show is truly entertaining but at times a bit sick. i hope the next season is good.
okay this show sucks. i mean seth did a great job on working with family guy. but this show is just trying to imitate it, the jokes suck and are not even funny, they try to remake the griffin family by putting lame characters, and it's just a waste of a show.
This show is a great show. The lauguage in it is American wich I love. I also love it because it is so funny I find! Alot of fmailies and friends I\'m pretty sure would love this TV show! It is not as good as the Simpsons but it is still an awsome TV series!
American Dad is a funny and interesting show, but is is almost too similar to Family Guy. Both shows have a father who does not care about his daughter. Both shows' daughter's are outcasts in their family. Both shows' sons are stupid. Both shows' mothers are just trying to hold their family together. Both shows feature a talking "pet". However, American Dad is a great show that explores areas that Family Guy could never go. American Dad consistently makes fun of the religious right. The funny newspaper headlines during each episode's theme song, like "Optimist Drowns in Half-Full Tub". American Dad is a great sow, and well worth wasting a half an hour watching.
Personally, I am not too fond of this show. It to me is mildly interesting with some humerious parts, but other than that it is kind of a boring show. I think that the maker of this show (Family guy aswell) have noticed how much of a hit family guy was and wanted american dad to be as much of a hit. well clearly its gonna have SOME Family guy type jokes, but in my opinion i think it is gonnna go down hill and that the makers of family guys should give up on american dad and make more family guy episodes.
