American Dad! now takes the place as the crown jewel of FOX Animation Domination. At least, in my opinion.
The Humor: The Humor is Spot-on. Perfect timing for every situation, not a joke out of place. And the thing I like most is that there are no flashbacks like Family Guy, which is still a good show, just that the flashbacks can get a little annoying. The puns and jokes have perfect timing, and every episode to date has made me laugh out loud on several occasions.
The characters: What I like about this show is that the characters are displayed as... whoa! Something new! They are displayed as REAL people with real emotions! That's what I like, although sometimes it is a bit exaggerated. Stan is displayed as a strong, loving husband and father, but is shown to be fraught with weakness, regret, and doubt (sometimes). Francine... well I can't say that fits her. She is the stereotypical ditzy housewife... but when something happens, her character steps up! The kids... are normal, average kids who stand up for what they believe in. That's totally underused in animation. Klaus the German Goldfish is by far one of my favorite animated characters! He doesn't get much airtime, but when he does, watch out! And let's not forget about Roger, the extraterrestrial. His humor in my opinion is one main reason I find the show enjoyable.
The writing: I find something new in every episode of American Dad! which is very hard to do. The wacky situations and trouble the characters get into always keep me on the edge of my seat.
Overall, I think this is as of now the best animated show on FOX.
9.5/10= Great in my mind!
That's all for now!
