AD was on a major roll going into this episode, but to expect it to keep up that torrid pace was a little much. And thus we get this episode. Stan dropping a log into the pool didn't lead to a lot of hilarity, which I guess was to be expected. There's really nothing cheesier than the whole episode turning out to be a fantasy.
Although, I admittedly got a chuckle out of Bullock appointing Stan to the Tactical Urban Response Division.
The AD winning streak comes to an end. Better luck next week.
Stan centered episodes tend to suck. He doesn't have the ability that Homer or Peter have to make one of those stories no matter how bad it is to have at least one or two good scenes. I know I am talking about an animated character, but it just doesn't work. He is better teeing off with someone like Roger or his son then getting stand alone episodes. Did love Roger has Indy though. Obama is just not a character that can be easily made fun of. I am sure people will say its because of the liberal agenda, but after Clinton and Bush, those two are a tough act to follow. I am also not a fan of using the Obama girls either, something about it made me feel uneasy. Like I was waiting for a ghetto joke that thankfully never came. It could be also that maybe a few people in the Obama administration actually watch the show and Obama would make a better joke about the show. I doubt there would be outrage like the GOP love to conjure up when they go after Palin, but most of that is just typical GOP look at poor us nonsense that backfires on them anyway.
Originally posted by Big BadIt's a good thing I didn't know the title beforehand, or else the final twist would've been pretty obvious. (Though you could kind of sense something was up when Klaus was shot.)
Another clue was the overt homosexual tendencies exhibited by Roger ... I mean, there's always been sort of fey overtones to his character, but this episode was just ridiculous ("Now to insert Hot Dog B into my A!").
But once you discover that it's all taking place in Stan's subconscious, then it makes sense ... It's like, "Oh yeah, Stan would look at Roger and see him as acting ultra-gay all the time!"
"All RAW is these days is a cheap version of Saturday Night Live, so if you wanna tune in to watch the amazing star power of Al Sharpton and Nancy O'Dell, go ahead! Who's gonna host next week, Big Bird? Wow, that's must-see TV!" - John Morrison (10/16/09 Smackdown!)
So I didn't know if I could buy into Walt Cummings as a sympathetic character at first, but Vanished has been pretty entertaining. My interest in the show was primarily due to the incredible collection 1990's era actresses that they're featuring:
