This is the first "Wheels and The Legman" episode that I've ever seen. To be honest, it was pretty damn good. Roger's seriousness was hysterical, and the fact that he also believed that a teddy bear (Mr. Bunkers) was as alive as a college student in his 20's...roll eyes Stan joining the corporation was also funny, as he was so bored, he decided to learn how to ride a unicycle just to play with them. laff I found the whole subplot with Francine, Haley, and the Fish (I forget his name frown ) was pretty funny. But the baby hippo butt scene was hilarious. I really thought he was going to make it onto the website, but it ended up being a picture of Roger's ass! laff

Overall:

His name is Klause. No such wonder you forgot his name he's so underdeveloped in the first season he had like 2 or 3 story lines!

There's no "e", it's just Klaus.

Anyway, Wheels and the Legman might well be my second favourite thing about American Dad! (after the solid-gold turd saga) so I highly recommend checking out the past episodes that include them.

Good episode.  Not a favorite, but worthy of the Domino's I ordered during it.

I'm glad Lorraine's back, even if she did melt Francine's face off.  I really wish they hadn't killed off Coco, who was one of my favorite bit players.

Pretty solid episode this week. It wasn't as good as "Wheels and the Legman" but it was still very good stuff and probably one of this season's better entries. The plot was enjoyable and it had a lot of good gags. I also really enjoyed the subplot with Francine and Roger... possibly more than I enjoyed the A-plot, in fact.

Francine I haven't been entirely truthful.

Roger and Francine are always the funniest when they're together.   The b plot was much more funny then the A plot, which had its moments... but quite frankly I always enjoy Franny and Roger together the most of all.

Roger works better when he's partnered up with another character, othewhise it's usually a roger persona against Stan, which can get kind of old

I think Roger and Steve are becoming my favourite characters. I love Stan and all, but he's getting old, especially when paired up with Roger's persona (like Goldfish said), that idea is getting a bit overused. Would love to see more episodes around Steve and Roger, and maybe having some entirely different people together for once would be nice. Can't remember when they had a episode revolving around the lack of communication between Stan and Hayley and their relationship. American adad is always top notch, no matter what they do. But still, i'd love for them to shake it up. Maybe leave Steve/Stan, Stan/Francine, Stan/Roger's persona plots for a while and try something different.

Another good 'un, this week. Nice and simple plot executed in a traditionally odd American Dad! way. Funny, too.

At first I was annoyed that we were getting ANOTHER Stan is disappointed in Steve as a son plot this season, but it went its own route halfway.

I think it needed a b plot of some sorts, though.

Pretty good episode this week - my favourite since the Legs and the Wheel Man one, at least. It's nice to see not only Klaus getting a fair bit of use in an episode, but Jeff and Hayley too.

Yeah this was a good episode.  Klaus is a very underrused character, and much as I like the Stan/Steve dynamic, it was nice to see an episode this season that wasn't focused on them.

This week's episode was a strange one. It had a nice premise but I also feel like they've probably explored time-travel enough, already if they're not going to do anything particularly new or interesting with it.

The ending felt abrupt and the whole thing felt somewhat rushed as a result, but it was funny enough. Not an amazing episode, but not bad either I suppose.

I'm pretty sure Hayley is supposed to be 18 which means they should have gone back to 1994 not 1996.

Agreed.  It was one of those episodes that suffered from what I call the "dreaded 18 minutes" (a problem that has plagued the recent Futuramas as well).  It spends a lot time being promising, and you're excited to see how it all plays out, only to look down and see there is only two or three minutes left to resolve everything, and the results are rarely satisfactory. 

I thought Hayley was supposed to be in her early to mid twenties now.  The show is always somewhat vague about how old the characters are.  I'm pretty sure Steve was always meant to be 14, but a recent episode showed his 14th birthday.  As for how old Frannie and Stan are... confusing.

I did feel a bit cheated by the ending though.  Hope they find a use for the other kidney!  Or that whatshisface managed to excape Roger's clutches.

I assumed that the characters didn't age unless we see them have a birthday, which would make Hayley 18, Stan 42, Francine 40, Roger 1601 (Francine and Roger are the only two characters to be shown to have aged, since Steve turned 14 in Man in the Moonbounce even though he'd been said to have been 14 previously) and Klaus unknown (unless I'm forgetting something).

EDIT: On the subject of how I felt about the episode: I actually enjoyed it (except for the inconsistency with the year) although I'm not sure why. It was a kind of weird episode but I just found myself enjoying it more than I thought I would or something...

I always thought Haley was older then 18 though for some reason... she feels like someone whose in their early twenties for some reason.  I mean we see her drinking a lot in bars... is the drinking age twenty one in Virginia or lower?

I'd imagine the drinking age in Virginia is 21, but we've seen her use a fake I.D. at Roger's bar in A Smith in the Hand.

I'll never get the states where you can get married/join the army/appear in porn/learn to drive at 18, but still insist that not letting you drink until you are 21.  But that's me I guess.

How old do you have to be to adopt btw?  Jeff adopted a child so he could be a bit older then Hayley.  On the other hand the whole process was pretty shady and running on Rule of Funny.

Who cares about that, I still wanna know why Steve and Snot kiss each other.

Anybody care to explain with a real answer and not; "Oh, they are gay.. aren't they?"

Google provides no answers at all.

Sorry for the double post.. but check it.

That's probably down to the episodes airing out of production order.

Actually AD has the most fucked up production schedule.. production codes are meaningless.... and I got proof!

In 'The People vs. Martin Sugar' which aired after episode 100.. it has a production number of 5AJN05.. and yet Hayley and Jeff are married.

But in "100 A.D." they get married.. its number.. pro # 5AJN14... and it aired months before the Martin Sugar.

Say what you will... but obviously things are retro-planned or plugged into any older episodes that cause problems.

Actually I know for fact V Bros. is made in a equally confusing way, as the first episode for a season is never written or produced first... but will be written and made after several episodes are almost totally done... so they can plug plot points in and retro-plan shit.

It actually (usually) works out rather well.

"Ricky Spanish" was a really strange episode. Some really funny bits but some downright bizarre parts and although I laughed at the ending, I'm not sure that I'm happy with it.

I haven't been able to catch any of the new American Dad episodes lately, hopefully once we move into our new place and get TV set up I can catch up.

Anyway, this one was on Adult Swim the other night:

Watching this latest episode of American Dad that details how disgusting Mexico is reminded me that I wanted taquitos for dinner. Now I'm hungry. Even though there were several scenes of people profusely vomiting. Someone give me taquitos!

Oh I forgot to mention the SPACE PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!

I think I'm in love with Scott Grimes' singing voice. Oh and the fact this episode from a few weeks ago nailed the boy band music video. There was some nostalgia going on. It was weirdly arousing.

I think it has to do with football games in the fall running late.

American Dad seems to get the short end of the stick when that happens.

Oh yeah, I meant to post in this thread yesterday!

I actually loved this week's episode. It had a lot of great laughs and typically fucked up moments, and I like that they actually used Hayley and Jeff (and used them well) for the first time in a while.

I really enjoyed this week's episode.  On a whole, I think this week's shows were extremely strong, with the best Simpsons and Family Guy we've had for a long time, as well as two extremely solid episodes of American Dad and of Bob's Burgers (as per usual.)

I thought this week's was alright but it had a lot of real WTF moments that made it feel Family Guy-esque, like it's losing its way a bit. Certainly not bad and the show is, on the whole, still very good and probably the best thing that Fox has to offer, but meh.

This week's Family Guy wasn't great. Not bad, again, which is better than the show has been in the past, but the last few weeks were better if you ask me. The show's doing alright this season. It's not outstanding but there are less offensively unfunny episodes.

And The Simpsons was as utterly terrible as usual if you ask me. Also, I don't understand why Patton Oswalt was cast as a child when the child's dad was a similar character and had plenty of dialogue and was just voiced by Hank Azaria.

It didn't get cancelled, it's just switching networks. But I think it would be a great idea to cancel it soon. It's getting rustier and rustier every season.

But I would love to know what show FOX is going to replace it with........
