    Default American Dad

    I get the feeling that people aren't going to give this show a chance no matter how good it may be. People are going to have preconceived opinions that it can't measure up to family guy and won't watch or will watch with that bias. If you saw it last night you know it was a good episode and consistently funny. Better than Family Guy last night. I know the first 2 episodes were a little uneven, but come on they're just starting out with this show.....give it a few more views before passing judgement on the show as a whole. I, for one, would like the show to succeed because afterall....what's wrong with having another funny show to watch? Anyway...maybe I'm wrong about this and people will give it a shot. I hope so. Anybody else see the show last night? thoughts?

    I'd like to see the ratings for AD last night. Both shows are two of the best that have ever been on TV. The only show that even approaches that quality might be Chapelle's Show.

    I thought it was funny, the stripper bit was good.

    I won't go so far as to say it was funnier than last night's Family Guy though. I laughed out loud several times to it.

    American Dad was a helluva lot better this week, but Family Guy was still way better. I am willing to continue giving AD a chance.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    Family Guy was much funnier but I am also willing to give AD a chance. I think unfortunately it will be cancelled because people think that it's too much like Family Guy. It needs to be given a chance because it is a very different show from Family Guy.

    Actually, I thought both American Dad and Family Guy were weak last night, but FG was still funnier. I'm still willing to give AD a chance, but I don't think it'll last past the first season.
