It might just be me, but whenever I see Stan try and make a man out of Steve, it just feels like a road they've traveled over and over. It's still funny, but...it feels like it's been done.

What I liked a lot better was Roger's quest to get his wine bottle back. The random wrecking ball nearly killing Francine was such an unexpected twist...and yet so unsurprising. Man, I love this show.

So we've reached the end of this 18-episode season. AD has been such a reliable show that it's really hard for it to blow me away, anymore. But I do appreciate its consistency, which is hard to find in shows these days. It started off in great fashion with the killer hot tub and managed to keep that level of quality throughout the entire season. Nothing really stood out, aside from last week's awesome "Ricky Spanish" episode. I will note that I continue to love Principal Lewis and actually find him to be the funniest character in the MacFarlane-verse.

Not much else to say, but it's another solid season for AD.

I thought the opening with the Trolls trying to kill Steve and I guess a piece of gum or maybe Gumby only to be saved by a Dinosaur with lazer guns on top of Thomas the Space flying Train was worthy of any great hallucination. Stan trying to make Steve a man has been done, but again its not a bad road to travel. Its better than the Stan does something to the family that causes them to almost die road which is now a dead end.

Rodger and Francine were great. Francine getting the bottle back was gold. I do think we undervalue AD, because it has been steadily good. Compared to two years ago when Family Guy was bad and Cleveland show was starting out. It has been the Derek Jeter of cartoon shows of just all around consistency good to borderline great when you least expect it. If anything, its far superior to Cleveland show. I caught half of Cleveland show while wearing headphones and still understood the plot. If any show needs to go its that one. Family Guy has been very good this season and I am a bit shocked they got away with the Tea Party episode considering the amount of detail into the organization they went into. Still, AD is just a gem and I am going to miss the hell out of it.
