American Dad is a fantastic show, telling the story of an American family, facing day to day struggles ending in elaborate yet hilarious stories. Each of the characters in the Smith family can hold down an episode of their own, while keeping a viewer entertained and laughing the whole way through.
Similar to sister shows Family Guy, and The Cleveland Show, it is unlikely that the show would do this well, however, it is widely debated that this show is the best produced by Fuzzy Door.
I have not seen an episode of American Dad that I didn't like (and I've seen them If you are in for a few laughs, an intriguing story, or something to watch with friends, you should definitely check out American Dad.
This show makes me proud to be an American. I find it funny from start to finish. I laugh more when I watch Family Guy but this show has more of a story. Something about this show makes me want to join the cia or at least look for drunk costumed big wig aliens haha. Good Morning USA!
Not a "spinoff", just another brilliant Macfarland work. comparing AD to FG is a moot point.
and ROGER?!! harmonica blown, followed by "noooooooooo!!!" alcoholic alien who lives to assume other lives? sophisticated, charming, rude----Macfarland's worlds are comic genius AND draw devotees in :)
Sure this show is done by Seth Macfarland which means that all of the jokes and plot lines are ripped off of The Simpsons, South Park, or king of the Hill and have already been used in Family Guy and The Cleveland Show, but Roger is the funniest thing I have seen on television since Mr. Burns' heyday. The episode where he became a cop alone was enough to make me tune in for every other episode.
For my very first review, I'm gonna talk about my favorite show, AMERICAN DAD!! I would definitely recommend this to fellow Seth McFarlane fans. This show is getting better every year! This season is so far my favorite of the entire show! Love, A.D. Style was the best episode ever! I wouldn't recommend a lot of the old episodes, except for Bush Comes To Dinner. Watch This Show And Watch It A lot!
American Dad Is Seth Macfarlane's Best Show! This Show Kicks Family Guy,The Cleveland Show,and the simpsons A**!

Romance- 10 ALOT of romantic parts of this Show
Total- 10 I Recommend This For family Guy Haters And Family Guy Lovers.Either Way You Will Love This Show!
Family Guy was once funny but now it's not interesting anymore and not as funny. The Cleveland Show was a total bomb that should never have been made and needs to be canceled. But there is one last show by Seth that is still very good, American Dad. American Dad was Seth's second show after Family Guy, and at first, I have to admit, the show wasn't that good. The first season gave me some great humor, but most of it didn't make me really laugh. I guess this was back when Family Guy didn't suck and that I was used to the humor Seth gave us in that show and was expecting the same in American Dad. As the show went on though, it actually got funnier and it is now one of my favorite TV shows. The humor does not revolve around cutaway gags like in Family Guy, but instead on satires of pop culture that is very funny. There is also the usual talking animal, Klaus, in American Dad, but we actually learn why Klaus can talk, and I think that is good to have an explanation as to why he can talk, not a, "oh, he can talk so just accept it." There is also one thing that American Dad has topped over Family Guy, it doesn't rely on the same jokes again and again. American Dad is given new humor in each episode, which makes me wonder why Seth can't do that in his other shows. The episodes themselves are original and are fun to watch. All the characters are lovable and each bring in their own uniqueness of humor to the show that makes it more watchable. American Dad started out pretty poor in the first season got better as the seasons went on, and is now an excellent TV show. The humor is unique, the characters are great, the episodes are fun to watch, and it doesn't rely on the same jokes again and again. This is really Seth's last good show and hopefully, Seth will not ruin this show at all for everyone who enjoys it.
Bullock quits the C.I.A and then becomes a cook,stan tries to get his job back by beating Bullock in disguise.Steve,Roger,and Jeff try to rob a bank for Hayley's college money.Bullock then gets beat by stan and joins the cia once again and roger runs off with hayleys 6,000 dollars of money.
Seth Macfarlane's Family Guy gave us constant laughs throughout the year. However, did you ever come to realize that Family Guy uses 2-year old humor to appeal its demographic? Plis, I don't know about you, but Family Guy is so nasty at times it kind of gets hard to watch. I'm not saying it's a bad show, it's really great. In 2005 though, Seth Macfarlane created another show, American Dad! And with that, I instantly found myself leaving his first show, and getting interested in this new one. American Dad! is absolutely brilliant, it finds a way to be just like Family Guy but show heartwarming elements that appeal to a whole different demographic. And whether you see it or not, American Dad! IS funnier that Family Guy, you have to know the world to understand its humor though, which is a pretty nice touch. American Dad! uses political humor, rather than Family Guy which uses parodies or american culture and flashbacks to create humor. Plus, Roger (you know, the alien) is absolutely hilarious, he may even be better than Stewie Griffin in my opinion. What happens in this show? Stan Smith screws up his family and needs resolve his problems, usually by learning life lessons. American Dad! Does have some nasty material, and it is racist at times but not as much as Family Guy. This show is so great, it will always be one of my favorite animated comedies behind Futurama.
It's really very good that Seth can still keep this good and standing up. It's a spin-off of family guy.
Plot: Stan Smith, who works at CIA for keeping terrorism away. He loves his job, and his country, but he loves his family more. His family is slightly quirky, his wife was a drug addict before, his daughter, is slightly okay, but still does weird things, and his son... well, is having problems with puberty! And there's that alien named Roger, who was rescued by Stan inside the CIA base, but he has to stay home. Klaus, a smart goldfish who has the hots for Stan's daughter. They all have their own problems and their mishaps. It's great each episodes, each one are funny and changes it's theme and target.
Characters: They are great and have their own good roles, and their agenda is also unique and unusual. They are in complete personality. Voice acting and dialogue is great. The main characters have their own good complete back stories.
Humor: Less mockery and aggressive, more family-related jokes. Actually it's still nice and it can still make anyone laugh.
Art: Just like Family Guy, Family Guy's art style is great, and so is this. So no problems.
Overall: 10. Also, this also makes me question like the others; Why Seth can make this good but the Family Guy can't?
The characters are so much more advanced in this show and do much more interesting klause for one is moody sometimes and always halarious Francine unlike Lois likes her kids and is a great mom family guy episodes are always the same stewie and Brian do one of the two a crazy science experiment or stewie helps Brian with his love life Peter makes fun of meg and then goes to the clam and Lois and Chris are hardly in the show. American dad is my fav show right now like if u agree!
What can I say? There is a lot I could say about this show, a lot of good things about it, and its just great to watch. I love how funny American Dad is and could watch it all the time. All the caracters are funny, but I will have to say Steve is my favorite and is great. Roger is really funny to like him a lot he's a real smart ass, so funny, and cool. I like when Roger is being him self, not trying to be mean, but kinda is and the mom just gets this look on her face like she wants to just beat him up or something is awesome. Haley reminds me of Meg a lot of Family Guy just because the family just acts like shes there, but think what ever about it, except Haley is way cooler than Meg so dont get me rong on that. Stan, ok got to love him to because he is outstanding and goes from being mean, to nice, to he has no idea what to do and is funny in his little CIA way, i just dig it, think its cool, and he's awesome. The mom, yea is much is I watch this show I do forget her name a lot, cant beleave I forgot it once again, but yea what I like about her is she is this strong hearted mom who just trys hard to keep the family close and keep Stan from for geting who he is. I watch this show is much as I use to watch Family Guy, I still watch Family Guy when it is on, but is been mostly American Dad sence I discoverd the show it really gets me laughing harder. Well thanks for everyone who was here to here me out and if you have never seen the show watch it because I bet it will get you laughing.
People often compare this show to Family Guy, even though it was clearly designed as an alternative. This show has great humor which keeps you laughing from start to finish. This is one of those rare shows where every main character pretty much(except Haley) could have an episode based upon them only and it would still be hilarious.I really cant think of too many negatives about this one.
In my opinion, this show is better than Family Guy. Unlike Family Guy, this show doesn't get very much bad/ UNwatchable episodes. The poorest recently episode was The Worst Stan. I didn't like the pilot very much and as well as few episodes during season 1/2. The characters are pretty much funny, but I'll going with Klaus, Steve, and Roger as the funniest. Klaus often has funny lines whenever he appears. Steve is just funny because nerds are funny. Roger made me laugh most of times, but sometimes get annoying. My favorite recurring characters are Steve's friends, Avery Bullock (Stan's boss), Principal Lewis, and several others. I hate anyone in this show unless he/she gets on my nerves sometimes. The best episodes I had seen this show were 16,00 Candles, Spring Break Up, Roy Rogers McFreely, and a few others. Now, I'm gonna to rank the seasons.
Season 4: Was the best and it has a lot of funny episodes. 10/10
Season 3: This is when the show become more funny. Again, most episodes were very great. 9.5/10
Season 5: Not as good as season 3/4, but still liked it. I just wished FOX didn't temporarily took this show a break. 9/10
Season 6: This is when Principal Lewis is shown often. It has a couple boring episodes, but the season opener was perfect. Overall superb 9/10.
Season 7: So far this season hasn't got a perfect score from me yet. 8.5/10
Season 2: A little improvement of season 1. 8,5/10
Season 1: Started off slow, but then it got a little better. 7.5/10
The show often gets better as it goes on. I was starting to get into this show on 2009, but I didn't watch AD that much until Adult Swim started airing it from Mon-Fri. This show is better (a little bit) than Family Guy since there's a few bad episodes. 10/10
At least American Dad is still fresh and original. I thought for sure Seth was going to ruin everything with the way Family guy has been and The Cleveland show.. But thankfully there is still one shining gem on fox. I hope it will last a few more seasons before he pulls a family guy and completely butchers the show.
One thing i always enjoy about this show is Roger the alien. Thats one of the more unique characters on the show and he always has something funny to say. It is usually pretty inappropriate too haha. Bottom line: This is the best of McFarlanes current work and i hope he will tighten things up and not let it go down with the other 2 shows.
The greatest show on earth! I love it! Family guy was OK but this. This is down right hilarious. There is NOTHING bad about this show. Everything was perfect! The humor, the animation, the characters. American Dad is truly awesome. I just love Klaus. The talking goldfish. He is HILARIOUS. Awesome show! I hope it's around for a long time! I can't wait to see more shows made by Seth. OMG this is incredible. I am so eager to see more and more new episodes of this incredibly awesome television show! This show is the greatest. I love it SO much.
American Dad! from Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane, is the animated story of Stan Smith, who works for the CIA and is constantly on the alert for terrorist activity. Stan will go to extremes to protect his beloved America from harm – as evidenced by the terror-alert color code on his fridge, and his frequent knee-jerk reaction of shooting holes in the toaster whenever the toast pops up.
What I like- No cutaway gags, no retarded moments that drag on for WAY too long like Family Guy, funny and original in every episode
This show beats family guy mainly because i think the cutaway gags are old and the characters are better. Stan-peter: Both great characters. Francine-Lois: Lois is obnoxious but Franny is a funny trophy housewife. Steve-Chris:Tough, but i guess its a tie. Both are very funny in their own ways. Hayley-Meg: Meg sucks and Hayley is a hippie stoner who's father is a Republican. Great combo. Roger/Klaus-Brian/Stewie: Very hard, but i give Klaus and Roger the lead because a Nazi fish and an Alcoholic alien with a million disguises and funny lines are funnier than an evil baby and an alcoholic dog.
This show contains more humor in it then the other shows on animation domination. Threw the years American dad's humor change from various styles. The first two seasons they focused on politics (which I find was Hilarius) Then next three had a lot of racist jokes. The last few seasons put everything joke they could put in there, and made everyone love this show. Every season has one thing in common though. They share the stubbornness of Stan Smith. This makes every show entertaining to see him go to the extreme to make his way the right way. This is a must watch show, and even if you don't like the fist season come back for the others because it is a ever changing comedy that will never leave the hearts of the Americans that want a laugh.
This show is basically a LOT better than Family Guy. It's not about Fart jokes or 911 jokes, this show is different from that. It's about a CIA agent who has a family. Roger is basically the best character of the show. He's basically an alien who likes to drink and loves to disguise. Stan is basically a dad who is overprotective, but is different from that STUPID Peter Griffin. But now, Seth focuses more on that stupid Family Guy than this. This better not get cancelled. If it does, then Seth is basically a terrible creator of these cartoons.
Yeah, I said it. This show is better than both Family Guy and The Simpsons, because it's really fresh, and there is no episode of it that I hate, or even don't like. I love every episode of this show. But, in my opinion, this is one of those shows that you either love or you hate. This show is from Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, and Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. This show is very unique, and I don't know why everyone calls it a cheap knock-off of Family Guy. They're totally different shows. American Dad! is about a CIA agent, while Family Guy is about a fat guy. How are they the same? While I love both shows, American Dad! is definitely superior to Family Guy.
One word for this show... great. American Dad is just great. It has the alien rodger and a bunch of other wild characters. At the end of last season, I believe that this show was the best on animation domination. Then Family Guy got back up to number one this year since American Dad just kept on talking about stan's promblems. They have stop doing that and now it's even better than before. I love everything about this show and every character is funny. From the alien to the talking fish, this show is amazing and I hope that it doesn't end. Keep it up.
I don't watch the show a lot but from what I have seen it is quite funny. It's a lot better than Seth's other two shows, I think. It's generally funnier, has better plots, and has better characters. I think it's probably Sunday Night Fox best cartoon... it is just so well-written and funny, I think anyone who has not seen it should go see an episode right now. I do not think they would regret this at all. My overall grade, from what I have seen, is an A+, an all around funny show. Well don e makers, well done
I've only seen like 2-3 episodes, and I'm already a huge fan. This show is about typical conservative father, Stan Smith, who works as a CIA agent, and lives with his two kids, dumb kid Steve, and liberal hippie Hayley. Oh, and they have an alien named Roger who lives with them. The stories are like Family Guy (Seth MacFarlene's other show) but strive to be far less random than it's distant cousin of a show. The characters also have stronger personalities than that of Family Guy. Alot of distrubing stuff happens too (Hayley sleeps with Stan's boss!?) but it's all for laughs. Keep it up Seth. 10/10 A+
I will not compare it to Family guy nor to the Cleveland Show, because American Dad has its own place and standards. Even a single episode is not boring. the show just keeps entertaining with its head-on jokes or even with its own subtleties.
Merging an American family whose Family Guy is a CIA agent with an Alien is the greatest of all, giving way to hilarious scenes.
I do hope the show continues without an end, or gets worse in time just as Family Guy.
Only thing I expect more from American Dad is an hour long episode. That's the only thing missing.
American Dad is another creation from the mind of Seth MacFarlane which has been getting more funny as the seasons go on. Recently Fox moved this show to an earlier time slot the dreaded 6:30 slot the slot that all shows have meet or come close to their doom like Futurama and Sons of Tuscan. American Dad however I feel is a strong enough show to survive until Bobs Burgers gets canceled(which should be soon I hope) and move everything back to place.One of my favorite shows since I dont really watch much T.V. because to me there just isn't much on worth watching except cartoons these days.
The show is one of Seth Macfarlane's funniest show to date, I would say that this show is a sometimes funnier version of family guy, but with a storyline. The show stars Stan Smith a family man who works for the CIA, his home-maker wife Francine, his stoner, hippie daughter Hayley, his nerd of a son Steve, an alien named roger who saved Stan's life and now lives with the family and is sometimes Stan's best friend, and a fish named Klaus who was a German skier before having his brain transferred into a body of a fish. this show has good story lines and good humor to go along with it.
