Thought it was hilarious, just not as good as Family Guy which is one of those rarely seen strokes of pure genius that only lasts a short moment. The part with the Jack-in-the-Box man still makes me laugh my ass off when I think about over two hours since watching it.
maybe I just like it so much because im a cold republican and its like making fun of my own people who are in fact stupid? =\ feeling confused because me and 5 other people were laughing our asses off. Definetly not family guy great, but with all the total steaming piles of reality show **** that have been on tv for the past year it was a good breath of fresh comedy.
If you people don't support real programming, even lukewarm shows, then I don't want to hear any complaining when they replace those programs with shows featuring children of celebrities eating bugs in front of a panel of smarmy judges.
Let's give this show a chance to develop some before turning on it.
Definately a poor show. I laughed once the entire time. The mother character seems completely blank, just lines on a page and words in the script. The alien and the fish should be one character, instead of two diffrent attempts at comic relief. The entire thing was obviously a dig at Republicans, and while that can be cool, it cant hold an entire show. Though I did laugh at the Bush talking to God(that was the one laugh).
The reason Family Guy was so good was because half the jokes take a minute to actually land in your brain and you dont laugh right away, instead you laugh later when it finally hits you. Or they have a ton of humor that is really subtle. Like when Brian chases the miniature wagon through the kitchen, which was an old TV commercial. American Dad is lacking the subtle qualities and instead just throws it at us and insults our intelligence.
I would compare watching it to licking the sphincter of a skunk with dysentery (or so I have been told that said licking would be very badů).
I love Family guy but that was worse than having Tom Arnold cast as Gandalf; worse than being forced to watch Rosanne do a routine with a brass pole; worse than having Michael Jackson as your kids babysitter after he has declared Bankruptcy.
