    Feeling exhausted all the time, Stan begins taking pills that allow him to stay up all night and feel like he had a full night's sleep. He tries to use his new found energy and time on hobbies, only to ultimately discover he would rather spend more time with his wife. Meanwhile, Roger and Steve are asked to make a screenplay for a pornographic film

    Overall, this episode was great.

    What I liked: Stan realizing he wants to be with Francine more than he wants his precious 'Stan Time', Stan drawing on the board what looked like pizza and giving it to Francine, Klaus calling that French guy a dou***, amongst other things.



    I liked the first half more than the second. The only thing I liked out of the second half was Stan realizing he wants Francine. The rest of it was kind of boring, but luckily the first half of the episode had enough good parts for me to give it a B as my final grade, which I think is fairmoreless

    A truelu great episode! I havn't seen a new episode of American Dad in ages. This was the first of the many new ones I've started watching and it truly rocked my socks off! I thought that the Jokes were very very funny and was part of what made this episode bloody hilarious. Stan's humour get better and better every single American Dad episode. The other story with Roger and Steve with their Pornography ideas. Great episode!moreless
  • started off good.... then faded away....

    7.5
    ok. stan time. started off interesting... but the story and jokes faded away. and the ending was odd. i only loved the beginning and the middle parts of this episode. stan taking those pills making so childish was really funny. it wasnt very a memorable episode. just average. the ting is i will never give this tv show or any of its episodes a 1 because of its texture in every episode. so i did not really admire stan time, but i gave it a fine mark because of its texture and some of its classic jokes.



    a little bit recommended.moreless
  • Stan Time!

    8.0
    Beatman, what a cool video game. One of the great things about American Dad is how much attention to detail they pay, which is shocking for an animated comedy. The people at the Beatman Regional Finals looked exactly like the kind of nerds you would find at an event like that (I know because I probably am one of those nerds).



    The Stan storyline was really good here, and I can relate to his problems, especially wanting to eat the Hot Pocket at dawn by himself. The Steve and Roger writing a porno was a little stupid, but you did get some clever pokes at the Hollywood lifestyle.



    American Dad is also able to pull off the sappy endings, something Family Guy can't. Just another enjoyable AD episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • In the beginning of the episode when Roger is cleaning himself like a dog, he tells Stan, "Don't forget the menthol lights."  But the closed captioning lists the line as, "Don't forget the Virginia Slims."

    • Steve asks Stan to build his Pantheon project. There is a shot of Stan and Steve working on the project, but they are building a model of the Roman Colosseum, not the Pantheon.

    • The book Stan tries (and later succeeds) to read is Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October.

    • Steve mentions "The Chimdale spa" when coming up with a movie idea.

    • Translation of the French spoken in this episode:

      Phillipe: Tu vas etre célèbre! ("You are going to be a celebrity!")
      Francine: "Phillipe, tu sais que ce n'est que le science qui m'interesse." ("Philip, you know that it isn't only the science that interests me.")
      Stan: You speak French now, too?
      Francine: "Un petit peu." ("A little bit.")

    • At the end of the episode, Stan tells Francine to turn her CB to channel 9; however, CB radios do not work underwater (especially as deep as Francine would be). Either this was a mistake in the script or an example of Stan using the term "CB" as a familiar shorthand for radio communications.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Phillipe: (with heavy French accent) Mr. Francine, I know this must be upsetting. But understand I am a homosexual, yes?.... You understand "homosexual"? ...Yes?... So you will be loosing your wife not physically, but, perhaps, emotionally. (walks into kitchen, Stan sits down on the couch)
      Klaus: That guy is a douche, yes? You understand "douche"?....Yes?...

    • Stan: (after taking the pills) I feel... not buzzed, but... well-rested, like I had a cup of coffee at 6:30 AM. I feel good!
