Dads: Season 1 (2013 - 2014)


Season 1
Dads

Critics Consensus

A near-total disaster, Dads makes the fatal mistake of believing its racist gags can lend an edge to its aggressively predictable writing and unlikable characters.

Audience Reviews for Dads: Season 1

  • Aug 26, 2020
    This is definitely not a great show, but it definitely deserved a second season. the writing is definitely predictable, however, it can really entertain a large, friend based crowd. The standout performances for me were Giovanni Ribisi, and Martin Mull. Please give the show a chance because, trust me, it really does give you laughs.

    This show gets a lot of hate, but had great acting and was quite enjoyable.

    This season is what you would expect the makers of family guy to make in a real life season its just funny so they need to make it second season if not in the USA then in the UK don't forget that the USA audience got family guy cancelled and got it resurrected and now its booming please do the same for DADS its to funny to leave it there

    Dads is a very good sitcom and it deserves a second season. What are you people seeing why its so bad????? Its one of the best sitcoms I've seen to date. And watched season 1 again. And still love it. SAD TO SEE IT WILL NEVER CONTINUE. SHOW ONLY TO UK VIEWERS CAUSE WE GET IT... WE DO NOT JUDGE !!!!!!!!!! WRITER PLEASE COME TOGETHER TO MAKE IT SEE A SECOND SEASON..... SETH MacFarlane PLEASE PLEASE GET WITH THE WRITERS AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

    racist gags are funny that it should have been on 8 years like two and a half men should have been on
  • Dec 29, 2014
    I guess I'm one of few who loved this show! I thought it was hilarious, an instant classic, and another hit from Seth MacFarlane and crew! I bought it on DVD! As far as the consensus, the writing is not "aggressively predictable." Honestly, a lot of the humor is because of how unpredictable it is!
  • Sep 27, 2014
    Dads has a great cast, a few good laughs, and somewhat creative storylines, but its script, characters, racist jokes, and typical adherence to sitcom cliches fail to make it anything special.

    it is awesome i love it
  • Aug 03, 2014
    What is difficult about this show is that i found it to be incomplete. It was like it wasn't even well planned out. The show only had brief moments of hilarity otherwise it was obnoxious, rude and down right boring. The fathers were also very unlikable characters
