Roger is so funny its unbelievable. For this is a golden animated series, aimed firmly at grown ups, and bursting with quotable lines. Him, and the astounding supporting cast, who generate laughs out of the slightest of situations.
Not that it has too many quieter points to paper over. In fact, American Dad!
After a few episodes, CIA agent Stan Smith and family gradually emerge from the Griffins' formidable shadow, and the show finds its own comic voice. And it sounds a lot like Paul Lynde. Not as inspired a creation is Klaus, the German-accented goldfish who lusts after Stan's wife, Francine.
He does, though, have an inspired meta-moment in the episode "Bullocks to Stan," in which he provides faux scene-specific commentary during the episode! As for the rest of the clan, Steve's children are the typical dysfunctional siblings: Steve, a socially awkward geek, and Hayley, a liberal counterpoint to red, white, and blue-blooded Stan--at least liberal enough to sleep with Stan's boss, Bullock playfully voiced by Patrick Stewart in the episode "Bullocks to Stan. But as with "Family Guy", "American Dad! The episode "Homeland Insecurity" features a digression in which a Department of Water and Power worker greedily kills his partner over a gem-encrusted gold "turd," only to find out his wife is having an affair.
As he wails to the heavens, the words "To be continued" appear onscreen.
According to the audio commentary, the writers do indeed intend to continue this compelling soap opera. So that's something to look forward to. The "Laugh Alert" level is Elevated with the release of this second volume of episodes that chronologically span seasons 1 and 2. You know the "there" that people talk about when they say, "Don't go 'there'?
Take the holiday--excuse me, Christmas--episode, "The Best Christmas Story Never," which somehow melds Charles Dickens with a Ray Bradbury-esque cautionary tale of tampering with the past. CIA Agent and true patriot act Stan Smith voiced by MacFarlane loses the spirit of the season in a blizzard of PC secularism in which even the fugitive "Christmas rapist" must be referred to as "the holiday rapist. The Smith family--wife Francine, geeky son Steve, and "peace-pusher" daughter Hayley--is still not as vividly drawn as the Griffins on MacFarlane's "Family Guy" even Klaus, the talking German-accented goldfish admits in one episode that his "fish shtick" is getting thin , but one can't help salute the audacity of the oft-inspired writing.
In "Helping Handis," Steve becomes the big man on campus after he develops steroid-enhanced breasts.
Two episodes are standouts for their animation. Near the end of "Failure Is Not a Factory-Installed Option," the screen adjusts to widescreen format, and the saga of the golden turd, begun in the first season episode, "Homeland Insecurity" compellingly continues with the jewel-encrusted oddity becoming the last temptation of an honest cop Beau Bridges. Roberts ist ein interessanterer Charakter als Lucas: Und was Nebenrollen angeht: Through his brother, Danny Vineyard's narration, we learn that before going to prison, Derek was a skinhead and the leader of a violent white supremacist gang that committed acts of racial crime throughout L.
Reformed and fresh out of prison, Derek severs contact with the gang and becomes determined to keep Danny from going down the same violent path as he did. Patrick Bateman, a young, well to do man working on wall street at his father's company kills for no reason at all. As his life progresses his hatred for the world becomes more and more intense. Ob Superbad oder vor allem Beim ersten Mal, hat er bewiesen, dass er genial sinnlos komisch ist. Aus diesem Grund habe ich mich sehr auf Ananas Express gefreut. Rating details. More filters.
