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.
I thought there was a level of desperation with some of the cruder bits that wasn't there in Borat, but this was still another gigantic success. Hard to not to be in awe of SBC's fearlessness and his commitment to fucking with people.
