Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the animated misadventures of CIA operative Stan Smith and his family kicks off with Francine demanding that Stan take the family on a vacation after she learns all of their previous vacations never actually happened: The CIA had planted artificial memories of the "vacations" in their brains so Stan could ditch them. Other notable outings feature Stan praying for a friend and having one provided: a guy named Brett (voice of Jay Thomas) who's like him in every way but one---he's an atheist. So Stan has some evangelizing to do; and with Francine out of town, Roger takes the opportunity to host spring break at the Smith house for visiting college students, one of whom becomes the straying Stan's "spring-break buddy."

...simply OK and not especially funny. When you know how high the standards can be, it's desperately disappointing.

As it stands though, I only laughed half the time. They were hearty laughs, but failed to offset the other hours of squirming in my seat and the silence and blank expression on my face.

Audience Reviews for American Dad!: Season 3

  • Oct 17, 2019
    A few gems, but each season seems to lose a little of it's class and focus on the more vulgar side of the show. The dead animal jokes are never funny, and this show uses them liberally. It all depends on whether the premise for each episode grabs you. If it does, you will enjoy yourself, if it doesn't it will be painfully unfunny. Seems to by about 50/50 at this point.

    With more memorable episodes, funnier gags and writing that fully finishes its beard-growing by this point, American Dad!'s third season just might be the best one yet.

    Shows best season yet.
  • Jan 30, 2014
    Not a fan of this show at all!
  • Dec 07, 2013
    Oh American Dad, how i enjoy watching you. Season 4 is in my opinion, one of the best seasons of American Dad, making me burst out laughing in every episode, which doesn't happen much. From the first to the last, every episode has the dark humor l love.
