I just dl'ed the first episode (i guess)...its by the creator/voice actor of the Family Guy series. Its about a guy that works for the CIA and his family. Alot of the jokes are aimed at current politicians and shit...its good but I wouldnt say its on par with Family Guy, the humor is quite similar and thats not a bad thing.


P.S......This pennywise cd is fucking fantastic!

I have to agree as well. I was kind of dissapointed as well. Oh well, I can't wait to see the new family guy episodes in may.

Wasn't THAT bad.

But wasn't that good either. It's like...

Getting fucked in the ass by Descent then realising it was only a dream. It was horrible beyond human perception, but it never existed.

In my opinion... its much like Halo 2.

By itself, Halo 2 was a pretty cool game, but (subconsiously or not) it was compared to the original, and couldnt stand up. I think the same applies to American Dad.

The Dad is the greatest character in my opinoin, the mom the worst. The alien has potential, but i dont think he's executed well. The two kids are freakin annoying, and not as lovable as Peter Griffin's kids. The parallels between the two shows are remarkably similar, and Family Guy did it right the first time. ALL HAIL MAY 1ST!

supposedly the new episodes of "american dad" are coming out may 1st as well... that should be confusing. the two shows will sit next to each other and fight, and the one left standing (family guy) will show for more than 3 weeks

This was my first time hearing about it, although I did see a commercial about it on Adult Swim. I haven't really been watching a lot of TV lately. I guess I should give ti a chance though.

I just watched American Dad following Family Guy. If you think about it (I don't know if it's already been stated) each character models a character on Family Guy. The Dad is Peter, the mom is Lois, the alien is Brian, the Older sister is Chris, and the younger brother is Meg. The only thing they're missing is Stewie, and he's probably the coolest character on that show. I know this was intentional, but it's kind of lame; it's like watching Family Guy 2 or something. I liked the Halo 2 analogy, but I think it also takes some humor from the original appeal of Family Guy to see that they're just trying to pull in more money with a sub-series that almost identically mirrors the show.

I think the only reason it's LESS funny than Family Guy is because there is a less broad field of stuff they can attack; it's mainly themed after American issues only (mostly sarcastic or comical political parodies).

I think it was a bad idea in the first place, but I had a couple laughs here and there. On a side note, the new Family Guy kicked ASS! I kinda stop watching it for awhile but man, I'm gonna be sure to watch all the new episodes. GGz Fox.

I think the fish is Stewie.

The show sucked. I wanted to like it. I really did. But both times I've seen it it sucked. Right after the Super Bowl and tonight. I had to force myself to sit through it thinking "Hey, it might grow on me." It didn't.

A smartass, narcissistic alien that can't leave the house but talks on the phone... yeah... If that's not ALF I don't know what is.

The Simpsons was great. Family guy ROCKS but saddly will probably be canceled again in a few weeks once they get enough complaints. But American Dad just sucked.
