Tv Season Info

This animated series made its debut after the 2005 Super Bowl, and it may not have bowled viewers over like co-creator Seth MacFarlane's "The Family Guy," but it sure scored plenty of comedic points with adult-oriented cartoon fans. The show chronicles the misadventures of gung-ho CIA agent Stan Smith (voice of MacFarlane), and his suburban family, which includes a hippie teen daughter and a geeky teen son. The zany supporting cast includes a randy pet goldfish named Klaus, who was once an East German spy, and an extraterrestrial named Roger. Memorable episodes from the inaugural campaign saw Stan dealing with new neighbors who are Iranian, and whom he suspects are terrorists, and the Smiths mistakenly thinking that a comatose Roger is actually dead, so they get rid of his body.

Critic Reviews for American Dad!: Season 1

All Critics (3)

Issues like patriotism, generational divide, political activism, and traditional gender roles are addressed here, all with more fantasy than reality, but enough of the latter to touch a nerve with some grown-ups.

When it's on, and it usually is, the show's stories are extremely strong, engrossing, and hilarious. It only comes down to wading through the weaker couple episodes to get to the good ones.

Oft-dismissed as Family Guy's lesser sibling - or, as The Simpsons put it, a "plagiarismo di plagiarismo" - this season is arguably better than either Seth MacFarlane's first attempt or recent seasons from America's first family.
