Tv Season Info

Season 5 was a star-spangled banner campaign for CIA operative Stan Smith and his family and got off in appropriate style. In the first episode, Steve is chosen to sing the national anthem at the Langley Falls Veterans' Day celebration, but Stan doesn't think he's ready for it, and feels that Steve must experience real war first, like the one Stan experienced in Vietnam. In other exceptional outings, Stan crashes a My Morning Jacket concert to drag Hayley out of it and discovers that he likes the band---so much so that he becomes a groupie and goes out on the road with them. Band members have voice cameos; and Roger decides to turn his life around following a birthday-party roast that hits a bit too close to home. But his efforts to do so go too far, and the Smith family must go on the run.

Critic Reviews for American Dad! Season 5

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (0)

The show, unfortunately, does remain somewhat muted and ultimately a bit mediocre. It is amusing, and MacFarlane fans should enjoy the humor, but it just doesn't work as well as Family Guy.
