My opinion on American Dad's third season premiere is the devastatingly backhanded "just okay." The "A" plot with Stan & Steve recreating every summer camp movie cliche - only in an African refugee camp - worked for me a lot better than I thought it might, although it was clear they had nothing for Haley to do - or were they trying to make a sly commentary on the UN? Nah, couldn't have been that. Anyway, it seemed kinda forced. The "B" plot with Roger & Francine playing a professor and his wife did NOT work for me. I kept waiting for the other couple to reveal that they were doing the same thing, but nothing happened there. Also, Klaus totally dropped through the trap door - not that THAT is a bad thing, as he's always seemed like a totally unnecessary superfluous character. Wow, why am I still watching THIS show? (Because it was scheduled between "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" and you're too lazy to not program the DVR in one big chunk?) Ah, yes.

Yes, this DOES mean I'm starting one more thread...

I take it you've never seen "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Particularly the film with Richard Burton and Liz Taylor. I was really upset with myself that it took me until the dinner party scene before I realized that was where they were going with it.

I think I liked AD the best of the three animated shows, which has become less unusual over the last few months. The characters and concepts seem fresher, especially in comparison to the already-stale Family Guy.

Unlike Zed, I actually preferred the "B" plot, though constantly seeing the refugees (and others for that matter), wearing "E!" t-shirts was hilarious.

    fortunately, I have a wife who makes sure I am culturally literate by showing me these movies

Haha, well. Little did I know you would ever benefit from the Elizabeth Taylor oeuvre. I sense a Suddenly, Last Summer reference could be on the horizon, you should prepare for that. I do think I made you watch part of the TV biopic with Sherilyn Fenn once, though. William McNamara was a good Monty!

This is pretty much how those scenes played out last night:

Man, I love American Dad no matter what. I am biased. I thought the stuff with Roger and Francine was priceless.The line about her uterus swimming with syphallus...great comedy.
