American Dad!

TBS 2005

The series focuses on an eccentric motley crew that is the Smith family and their three housemates: Father, husband, and breadwinner Stan Smith; his better half housewife, Francine Smith; their college-aged daughter, Hayley Smith; and their high-school-aged son, Steve Smith. Outside of the Smith family, there are three additional main characters, including Hayley's boyfriend turned husband, Jeff Fischer; the family's man-in-a-goldfish-body pet, Klaus; and most notably the family's zany alien, Roger, who is "full of masquerades, brazenness, and shocking antics."

My Review of American Dad!

👇 Scroll down to the best episodes ranked by viewers.

Seth MacFarlane is definitely one of the most creative minds in the world of animated sitcoms. When I first started watching Family Guy, I was shocked and sensed confusion, yet, I liked it. So, I am definitely a big fan of MacFalarne’s second big sitcom hit American Dad. He definitely aced it and rubbed it in the face of doubters, because initially Family Guy was supposed to be scrapped to make space for American Dad, however, both shows are running, Seth is juggling both shows, and there are no signs of setbacks.

American Dad is an animated series for adults, it rotates around a family headed by a conservative eccentric father who works as a CIA agent, his immediate family is even more eccentric or rather silly in a super fun way. An additional 3 squatters of sorts also share the family house. 

The absurd and hilarious nonstandard upper-middle-class American Dad family the Smiths consists of 4 members, Stan the conservative father; Francine the housewife; Hayley the leftist, hippie daughter; and Steve the rather dorky son, they live in the fictional community of Langley Falls, Virginia, along with their 3 housemates that consist of Klaus, a deceiving nefarious Goldfish that has a German athlete’s brain; Roger, the selfish, master of disguise, a treacherous Alien; and Hayley’s boyfriend “current husband” Jeff Fischer who is always stoned. They are all wacky in the funniest way you can imagine, most of the events and interactions in their lives are a series of random hilarious oddities suitable only for adults.

The cast that plays the theatrically shady characters in American Dad is an interesting head-scratching mixture of personalities. Seth MacFarlane voices Stan Smith the father and Roger the alien too, he is also the creator of the show. Wendy Schaal voices Francine Smith the mother, Rachael MacFarlane voices Hayley Smith the daughter, and as you guessed it, she is Seth’s MacFarlan sister. Scott Grimes voices Steve Smith the son. Dee Bradley Baker voices Klaus Heisler the evil talking Gestapo-minded goldfish. Jeff Fischer voices Jeff Fischer, Hayley's boyfriend (then-husband), yep there was no need to change his name for the show, he is always baked in real life too. Patrick Stewart voices Deputy Director of the CIA Avery Bullock, Stan's boss.

I first thought that Seth MAcFalarne was inspired by his earlier creation Family Guy when he envisioned American Dad, but as it turns out, he and his friend and co-creator of American Dad Matt Weitzman invented the concept for the show out of frustration with the Bush administration. The series first premiered on Fox on February 6, 2005, and since then it has been smooth sailing. More than 340 episodes aired so far and more are coming. In 2014 the show moved to TBS and as per viewers, it got funnier, which I find true. I believe that these improvements can be attributed to the addition of a more intriguing background and new support characters, additionally, some of the episodes became more about other characters outside the Smiths family. 

The Smiths' big two-story home on Cherry street might seem like a normal home, but every now and then a secret room, facility, or something even crazier is revealed as part of it.

American Dad is very unique and different from other shows such as Family Guy where you will see plenty of cutaway gags and setup punchlines. The humor in American Dad is a result of its quirky and shady characters and the relationships between them.  It is a farce, as fictional as it can get but with so much real-life stuff the audience can relate to. In a nutshell, it uses deliberate in-your-face nonsense mockery of real-life situations. It is simply a joy to watch, it will definitely straighten out your mood.

actually American dad is my third best animated series after futurama and the simspsons.

I thought this was going to be a background noise watching. Just let it run and whatever. But no, this is surprisingly funny. Virtually every single episode makes me laugh out loud...

avatar

Trakt gets it's episode information from TVDB and there it's according to FOX (http://www.fox.com/americandad/recaps/season-9/episode-19) and not the scene naming. You would have to name them like this: http://thexem.de/xem/show/93.

Ein bisschen über mich 👋 Ich bin ein Marketing-Student in Paris. Ich liebe es, Nachmittage mit Freunden in einem Café oder Park zu verbringen.

Aber mehr als alles andere liebe ich es, an regnerischen Sonntagen oder an jedem sonnigen Tag Serien auf meinem Computer zu sehen (.. binging…) 🙈

Ich muss inzwischen Hunderte von Shows gesehen haben, von Romantik bis zu Science-Fiction-Serien. Oft gehe ich gerne zu einer Show zurück, die mir Spaß gemacht hat. Aber ich habe keine Lust, es mir noch einmal anzuschauen ...

Ich habe diese Website erstellt, damit ich und andere die besten Folgen unserer Lieblingssendungen finden können. Bis heute habe ich ungefähr 1.000 Shows auf der Website mit Stimmen und Bewertungen von Fans.

Hoffentlich können Sie sich mir von Ihrem Sofa aus anschließen und einen schönen Fernseher genießen!
