It was a really strong episode. Not one of the all-time best, but very good, all the same.

Certainly the best of the Animation Domination season premieres by a mile.

Definently. The plot intrigued me. I didn't even finish watching the Simpsons on demand. It was pretty bad. Steve always cracks me up, and this episode is a solid 9/10 for me 😉

My favorite part was the trivia, and it showed the map, and it was a completely different country. The dodo cracked me up, and at first I had no idea why it was there, and thought it was just a random thing.

The dodo bird was funny and it was a parody of that movie Weird Science.  Thought someday AD would do that with Steve and his friends.  The trivia was cool but Roger should've been in it more. 

Agree with Cyber Turnip that it was a good but not too great episode.

I really hope that Jeff gets his own spin-off show.

Unlikely, yes. But if he doesn't come back to Earth (ours, of course) any time soon, that episode was open-ended for something more. Plus, it'll be the closest Seth will ever get to doing the "Star Trek Reboot" he always wanted to do.

I give the Season 10 premiere an 8/10. It wasn't perfect, but it sure was a good episode. The dodo was funny, and the concept of the clones aging rapidly was interesting.

Here's a synopsis of Sunday's new episode:

http://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwtv/article/Scoop-AMERICAN-DAD-on-FOX-Sunday-October-6-2013-20130930

This doesn't seem like it will be an amazing episode to me. Then again, I could be wrong. There's not really enough information in that article for me to judge the episode right now. I guess I'll just have to wait and see it tomorrow.

Also, am I the only one annoyed that Fox is airing all of its shows' Halloween episodes three and a half weeks before Halloween? I know the World Series gets in the way of things, but I honestly wouldn't mind the Halloween episodes airing on the first week of November (which used to always be the case).

I prefer them airing before Halloween as opposed to after it, but trying to make sense of Fox's scheduling practices is a huge exercise in pointlessness.

I liked the title "The Legend of Zelda Rubinstein" better than "Poltergasm", but I don't know how the episode itself will turn out. It doesn't sound as good as Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls.

I think double posts are perfectly justified when there's several days between posts and the second post is about something completely different - i.e. post 1 reviewing 1 episode, post 2 info on the next one.

Anyway, I'm looking forwards to "Poltergasm". It seems like a really interesting and original premise.

1. As cyber_turnip said, there's nothing wrong with double posting if your posts are at least a day apart. That way, the thread will be updated and people will see the post.

2. You didn't even do the "Shame on you" thing correctly. To that I say: Shame on you, SolidSnake. Shame on you. no no

I'd rather it air before Halloween too, but this early in October, not too many people are even thinking about Halloween yet (except those crazy people who decorate their houses for holidays months ahead of time tongue).

Fantastic episode, pretty much had everything I could want from an American Dad episode. Rogers impersonation was one of his funniest yet, Hayley acting like a sex maniac again was fun for old times sake, the plot managed to be really cool and original without getting too unrealistic for the show, and we even managed to get some emotion between Stan and Francine. On top of that, the episode had tons of great jokes (Stan: "The sex was so heterosexual that I had to put something phalic in my to keep it even", Zelda putting suppositories in Stan's mouth, Mauricio coming out only to drop dead immediately afterward, Klaus's useless subplot) and is easily one of my favorites.

Overall: 5/5, best episode of the night.

I dunno, I'd say this was about on-par with The Simpsons (and last night's Bob's Burgers episode was better than both of them). It had a few good jokes and an amusing plot, but I didn't think it was anything special. I definitely preferred the season premiere to this.

I actually thought it was a really good episode. I thought it was cool that all the family members were used well (except for Klaus, although I liked how his whole subplot was basically a setup for a lame joke at the end of the episode), and I was kind of surprised at how frequently it made me laugh.

It does get a few points for how balls-out weird it was, but it's certainly no Hot Tub or Rapture episode.

I loved the concept for "Poltergasm", but I didn't feel that it was executed particularly well.

It wasn't a bad episode, I'd say it was just a solid-but-nothing-special one. Certainly, a step-down from last week's.

It was still the best of this week's Animation Domination block.

As somebody who went from thinking The Simpsons was the best television show ever, to somebody who couldn't watch it because it was just too bad, to somebody who now begrudgingly watches it every once a while with his kids to monitor for inappropriate material...

I must say, the current season isn't too bad. There are some really bad episodes (the Lady Gaga is the worst I've ever seen), but since I'm no longer emotionally invested in the show, the bad episodes don't hurt anymore. And some of the episodes are actually pretty clever.

I wouldn't go out of my way to watch the show now, but the level of hate that some people are piling on makes me think they are still in the "I used to love it and I've been betrayed and will hate every episode no matter what" stage. I used to be in that stage. I can relate. But if you can get some emotional distance between you and the show, you'll see that the current season isn't that bad.

Seasons 7 and 8 are kind of overrated. They are funny (and WAY better than season 10 onward), but there are a lot of boring episodes in there.

I find this whole situation funny, so I have no interest in deleting it or reposting in the correct thread. I will leave it here until a mod decides to remove it. (Or they can leave it here forever as a monument to my stupidity.)

7.5/10

The episode was okay, but I thought it wasn't as good as last week's episode. The concept was good, but they way the writers carried it out could have been better. I should mention, though, that very rarely do I enjoy a show's Halloween episode(s) just as much as regular episodes. One of the only exceptions to this is the THOHs from the classic seasons of The Simpsons. Speaking of THOH, this episode was way better than THOH XXIV. I'll give it that. Once again, I didn't dislike the episode; I just think it could've been done better.

I don't understand either. Fox could just wait until November to premiere its shows' seasons (like they used to), or they could premiere them in early September (which they also used to do). The MLB playoffs really screw up Fox's scheduling.

Although, normally we'll get at least 3 or 4 episodes before the cartoons go on their post-Halloween hiatus of a month or so. I see Fox has now streamlined the annoyance. roll eyes

I think they like to get the year's "Treehouse of Horror" episode shown before Halloween because (I imagine) it's better for ratings.

So, I imagine that that plays largely into them showing a handful in October rather than waiting till November.

They went through a phase of showing it November for a few years though, which was perplexing.

Showing THOH in November was pretty stupid to begin with, and I'm glad they stopped doing so a few years ago.

Anyway, if Fox started broadcasting its shows' seasons around mid-September, then they could probably could have squeezed in four episodes before putting them on hiatus. For example, say they had premiered Animation Domination on September 15th this year. They would have been able to show three regular episodes of each show before the Halloween episodes, rather than one. But questioning Fox's ways scheduling is like asking why people believe in ghosts, so I won't even bother thinking about it anymore.

American Dad will be on hiatus because of the World Series.   Why is the preimeres for Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, and American Dad always debut in late late September all the time?
