Ohhhh, they SO lost me at Andy Dick. Yeah, it had its moments, but...come on, are Andy Dick jokes really supposed to be funny in 2011? It picked up a lot more when Roger really lost his mind and started driving towards Area 51...right after stopping to see the World's Largest Waffle, of course.
I was pretty amused by the B-plot of Steve's announcing duties going to his head. The open mic is everyone's downfall.
Steve: Brought down by an open microphone. Snot: We had to do it, Steve. You were out of control. Barry: LIKE MY CHOLESTEROL! Snot: Geez, Barry, you have a lot of health problems.
This was the only show I caught tonight and despite parts of this looking like a retread or rehash of previous "Stan/Roger dynamic" episodes, I still enjoyed it. Andy Dick jokes will ALWAYS be funny!
I do think they missed an opportunity in not going to Toshi for announcements, or at least having a joke for why Toshi wasn't going to get a chance to do announcements. I also wanted Barry to do his "deep Barry" voice when he was delivering announcements, but a quick snap was all right.
The B plot was totally worth the entire episode. The Principal's coke dealings was awesome. I know people love Roger, but I am getting really bored with him. Andy Dick jokes are not funny, but they used him as a nice foil for Roger. At this point, I am actually more ok with the show focusing on the boys and yes, Toshi should have said something.
I'll agree on the awesomeness of the B-plot. The baby legs thing with Stan was kind of a bizarre choice for a way to tie up the story. I'm surprised they couldn't get the real Andy Dick to voice himself. I know they were pretty hard on ol' Andy in this one, but I'm pretty sure he's done the self-deprecation stuff before.
Animated sitcom "American Dad" has been renewed by Fox through the 2012-2013 season, the channel announced Wednesday. This will take the show through at least its seventh season.
That's great to hear! Whether it'll be tossed around to the 7:30 slot, like it occasionally has, remains to be seen. Of course, my DVR will find it anyway, so as long as it keeps bringing the funny, I'll be happy.
