"Independent Movie" was a pitch-perfect parody, though, I wasn't exactly in love with it as an episode. It was good, but not great.

I felt similarly about "Faking Bad".

I didn't like Faking Bad as much as Independent Movie, but I thought it was nice to see a Steve and Hayley story.

How come nobody from outside the family is ever perturbed by the talking fish? AD is not as slap-happy with the rules of reality as FG; a talking fish should be a big deal, yet people seem to take it in stride.

They've accepted other talking animals the same way (ie. Reginald the koala, Stan when he was a horse). I just take it as part of the show's universe.

I'd imagine July at the absolute earliest, its Fox seasons usually wrap up around April/May.

Great parody of Disneyland in last night's episode.  Liked how Roy Family was like a Walt Disney carcature and wanted to torture it's costumers.  Very cool!  It was funny how everyone was pitted against each other and Stan was a Clint Eastwood-like cowboy.   Hayley seems to be a hypocrite about that princesses when she herself was married to Jeff.

Roger was dynamite in this episode.  Liked his 'speedballs' song.  Also, the Simpler Times ride was funny.  Were they trying to make fun of Uncle Remes with that rabbit?  All in all awesome episode!  5/5!

I thought the new episode was pretty average. A couple of laughs and a relatively original take on what could've easily been a by-the-books storyline, but other than that, it didn't really do much for me. hmpf

I thought it was great and the best episode in a long while. A perfect example of how strange this show is becoming.

Familyland was an incredible episode.

I am a guy who is all for a big blood bath.
The jokes were hilarious.

A great American Dad episode, the best Animation Domination show at this time since 2010.

I dunno, after Minstrel Krampus, this big blood bath simply didn't cut it for me.

I think I actually enjoyed this episode more than Minstrel Krampus (not that I didn't love Minstrel Krampus). In fact, it was probably my favourite episode this season so far.

Hmmm. Maybe I still had the taste of that awful Simpsons episode in my mouth... I also thought this week's Bob's Burgers was sub-par, and that's generally the absolute highlight of Animation Domination. hmpf

Methinks a rewatch might be in order.

I didn't think "Minstrel Krampus" was anything special to be honest, but maybe that's just because I expected something special given the year-long delay, the fact that American Dad's Christmas episodes tend to be among their very best work and because this one had the krampus in it and the krampus is one of the best, least explored bits of Christmas awesomeness out there.

3 new episode titles from the TBS run have been announced, which are Brobot, Scents and Sensibility, and Now and Gwen. Nothing really to say about these, besides that Francine's hotter sister Gwen will finally appear.

Also, this is the best title ever.

That's a shame. FOX jumped the gun by not giving Jeff his own series.

I would have liked a handful of episodes about his adventures in space before he managed to get home, but you can't have everything.

We would call it: "The Jeff Show".

With a very original title.

We still haven't exhausted the Fox run yet, and this one's 13 episodes into the TBS run, so there's still a good chance we'll get at least one more.

Wouldn't that technically mean we're lucky and we get lots of episodes, and only have to wait a month at the least?

Sinbad has already been announced as a guest star for Season 9, so we're getting at least one appearance of their space adventure before the TBS run.

Or, he'll most likely appear on that same episode Jeff comes back. I don't think Jeff brought Sinbad with him. So he'll probably appear when the Aliens are hunting Jeff down or something.

I suppose it's quite possible that we'll just get a scene or two of Jeff in space intercut into the other episodes along the way, like the golden turd saga.

They'll say absolutely nothing at all, because that's a TBS episode, which will air after Fox washes away the rest of show from Urination Domination. The title will likely be changed, but I wouldn't put it completely past them to actually be able to use it, since a few other cable shows have had words just as bad in their titles.

Yeah but FOX only lets the show go to "Dick" or "Douchebag"....

It's not part of the Fox run, it's part of the TBS run. You can say "shit" on TBS.

All of the episodes are good expect for the ones about Roger seeing the future and Stan doing good deeds.

If American Dad is allowed to say " shit" on TBS, does that mean the rating might be upped? Or does censoring just work differently on TBS?

I think basic cable just has different rules altogether. They say "shit" all the time on Breaking Bad and Mad Men, and AMC still rated those TV-14.

Also breaking bad would occasionally say the word fuck, but it would be muted on broadcast and unmuted on DVD

That's true, the American Dad! dvds are (for the most part) uncensored.

Besides the really depressing Futurama-esque stuff in the wormhole, I thought it was a decent episode. Really interested to see what happens to Jeff now at least after that sweet goodbye at the end.

Here is the entire collection (ignore the labelling though, it's full of errors).

Anyway, I thought it was a great episode. So many hilarious moments - the new house, Steve and Snot's wedding pact, Stan being immediately murdered by the gorillas, etc. While it wasn't quite as strong as Lost in Space, it definitely delivered on all fronts, and functioned really well as a season finale. smile

Here's hoping the quality doesn't drop on the TBS run, especially now that Mike Barker is no longer involved. hmpf

Dude, I just gotta admit that.....


THAT WAS ONE HELL OF AN EPISODE!!!! One of my new favorites. I loved the dark futuristic themes. For some reason, it just appealed for the better. I mean really, there wasn't no easy breaks (or plot armors) for these characters, it's the most realistic a McFarlane show as ever became. The whole episode was pretty much awesome. Only thing that annoys me, is that no matter what Steve and Snott are going to be gay lovers in the future. That annoys me alot, but it still gave me a nice chuckle.

If the show ended on this note, it would have been perfectly fine with me. 9 seasons is a great run. With a final episode like this, I'd have been more than satisfied with the show's overall run. I mean I'll admit, I actually enjoyed some Season 1-3 episodes, although I know alot of people don't. And yes, the show did get ALOT better as it progressed. But it still did have a successful run. And this would have wrapped things up perfectly.

I mean, just damn. What a great episode. Hopefully on TBS they'll keep their shit together, but......something just tells me they aren't.

I had slowly been losing interest in this show since seasons 6 and 7 seemed to have the show growing weaker in my opinion. Season 8 was recently put on Netflix though, and I blew threw it. Personally I thought it was a really great season, one of the best in a while (although it did have its share of episodes that didn't work...Blood Crieth Unto Heaven, anyone?). I just started watching season 9, and it's not quite as good so far, although I just watched Independent Movie which was completely excellent.

I thought Blood Crieth Unto Heaven was one the show's funniest outings ever, but I can certainly understand why it's been such a polarising episode.

I also thought Season 9 was one of the strongest seasons the show's had. The last batch of episodes in particular are very, very strong.

I sorta got what they were going for with Blood Crieth Unto Heaven, but it just didn't quite work for me or make me laugh enough. That said, I wasn't paying 100% attention to it so I could probably stand to give it a second chance.

Blood Crieth is one of those episodes you'll either really love or really hate (same for AD!'s other experimental episodes like Independent Movie and Lost In Space). Personally, I really loved it, especially all of Patrick Stewart's scenes and the play aspect.
