Product Description

From Family Guy creater Seth MacFarlane comes American Dad the hilarious animated comedy about Stan Smith, an over zealous CIA agent and patriarch of his all American family. American Dad Volume 3 includes 19 episodes on 3 discs.

Amazon.com

"I’m not beloved," CIA Agent Stan Smith is shocked to discover after eavesdropping on his mocking neighbors in the episode, "I Can’t Stan You." With all the resolve this "pig-headed" Red State poster boy and George "The Dub" Bush devotee can muster, he vows, "I will make these people like me." For those still on the fence about American Dad, this collection of 18 episodes spanning seasons two and three ought to do the trick. These characters may not be as indelible as the Family Guy clan, but these episodes rarely flag. If the outrageous storylines don’t grab you, the rapid-fire random gags will. Like King of the Hill’s Hank Hill , Stan (voiced by series co-creator Seth McFarlane) is oft confounded by a world seemingly gone mad. Unlike Hank, he is the voice of un-reason. In "Surro-Gate," Stan’s dizzy wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal) agrees to be the surrogate for the Smith’s gay neighbors, prompting the disapproving Stan to kidnap the infant, as well as the brood of a lesbian couple. In "Black Mystery Month," Stan reveals a Da Vinci Code-like conspiracy involving George Washington Carver that’s plain nuts. In another episode, "Bush Comes to Dinner" for a night of drunken debauchery; some easy-target Bush-bashing redeemed when the President makes peace between Stan and his "lost cause" liberal daughter, Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane). Some of the best episodes focus more on the Smith family than politics. In "The Vacation Goo," Francine demands a real family getaway after discovering that all previous vacations were artificially created memories. In "Haylias," it is revealed that the unwitting Hayley is a brainwashed sleeper agent, who is activated by Stan to stop her from moving to France. "The 42-Year-Old Virgin" reveals another shocker: Trigger-happy Stan has never actually killed anyone! American Dad revels in guy humor. As Stan tells an unamused Hayley at one point, "You don’t get a willy, you don’t get the silly." American Dad brings the silly, but while the series is not above (or beneath) moth fart jokes, it is also smart enough to reference, say, Equus or the touching "When Somebody Loved Me" number from Toy Story 2. Stan’s geeky son, Steve (Scott Grimes), bitchy alien Roger (MacFarlane), and talking fish Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker) are no Chris, Brian, or Stewie, but this set contains some of their more memorable outings. In "Frannie 911," it turns out that it actually would kill Roger to be nice. In "Surro-Gate," Klaus vows revenge on Roger and Stan following a waterslide prank. American Dad fans will salute this three-disc set’s generous features, including a riotous Comic-Con cast table read of the episode, "The 42 Year-Old Virgin," nearly a half hour of deleted scenes (deleted jokes would be more accurate), unrated versions (with unbleeped profanities) of certain episodes, and freewheeling audio commentaries ("Hey, aren’t we supposed to talk about the episode?" one participant tries to steer one digressive conversation). --Donald Liebenson

American Dad gets wittier with every season it seems. Season 1 was good but didn't produce memorable episodes. Season 2 had two of my favorite episodes ("Lincoln Lover" and "Roger N Me") and season 3 offers another all-time favorite of mine "Vacation Goo." This season also includes highlight shows like "Meter Made," "Dope and Faith," and "Surro-gate." There are not many weak episodes here although "Bush Comes To Dinner" was a little much. Stan's one-liners are what make this show. They are often wittier and funnier than any lines on Family Guy and even South Park. Oh, and Roger is a great character! Lately, I've been enjoying the new American Dad episodes more than Family Guy which shows that, while FG seems to be digressing, AD is setting itself apart with smarter, more consistent writing and less filler.

Disc 1:
"Bush Comes To Dinner"--G.W. has dinner at the Smiths and Roger gives him booze which causes him to fall off the wagon. Meanwhile, Roger tries to track down Osama Bin Laden to get the reward money to buy Dollywood. Stupid episode, but I like how G.W. stood up for Hayley by listing all the things he did in his youth.
"American Dream Factory"--After having his desk moved to the men's room, Stan decides to start his own business selling holiday teddy bears and hires illegal aliens. Also, Steve, Roger, and Steve's friends start a band--Roger looks like one of the Spinal Tap guys. Roger then takes over the band with renditions of public domain songs because he cannot write his own material ("Ladies and gentlemen, I'm gonna tell you about a little place I know, a little place called London Bridge...IT'S FALLING DOWN!!!!!")
"A.T. The Abusive Terrestrial"--This is the second episode in a row that mentions Mr. Pibb (Hmmmm).

This show is just brilliant. I love Family Guy, but I just think the writing in this is even one step better. Smart and really funny... and the former is probably why it does not do better in the ratings.

America can rest peacefully with overprotective CIA agent Stan Smith on watch in the hilarious animated series "American Dad!". In this collection of humorous episodes, Stan is overwhelmed by all the attention from his family by pretending that they are the last people on Earth. Housewife Francine divorces Stan so he can experience again bachelor life and save their marriage. Daughter Hayley gathers evidence of President Bush's drunken antics to publicly humiliate him. Son Steve uncovers a 150-year-old conspiracy but a secret society will stop at nothing to prevent exposing. Roger the alien becomes a professional bounty hunter and joins Stan on the manhunt for Hayley's boyfriend. "American Dad!" is the hit animated FOX sitcom from the twisted minds behind "Family Guy". These 18 episodes from the second and third seasons feature some cutting-edge humor, memorable characters and guest voice stars like Peter Graves, Elliot Gould, Lisa Edelstein, Patton Oswald, Patrick Stewart and Academy Award winner Forrest Whitaker. The 3-disc set includes such standout episodes like "Four Little Words", "Joint Custody" and "Dope and Faith".

If you already bought the previous box sets, then feel free to pickup "American Dad!: Volume Three" is a well recommended purchase for any fan of the hilarious FOX sitcom. All 18 episodes of the second and third seasons are presented in standard full screen format. The picture quality is great with bright colors and good sharpness. Its 5.1 Dolby Digital sound is clear and well balanced. The 3-disc set features audio commentary by production crew and voice cast and all 18 episodes, unrated audio tracks on selected episodes, "Comic-Con Table Read" featurette and over 60 deleted and extended scenes. Overall, "American Dad!: Volume Three" scores a B+.

American Dad is a hilarious TV series by the creator of Family Guy. It focuses on the exploits of Stan Smith and his family. Stan is a CIA officer whose abuse of CIA powers and overbearing sense of pride put him into funny situations in every episode. Stan's family consists of Francine, a housewife who is oblivious to her husband's weird interst and always attempting to keep the family happy, Hailey, the hippy daughter who fights against oppression by the US government while abusing technologies and common American indulgences, Steve, the dorky son who attempts to be a popular kid in high school but hangs out with his other dorky friends including an exchange student who doesn't speak english, Klaus, the depressed goldfish that has the mind of a german skier who has an obsession with Francine, and Roger, the alien from Area 51 who enjoys playing with whigs and other costumes to enjoy the outside world that he thinks exists from watching pop television. Overall, the 3rd volume of American Dad is a great collection of hilarious episodes that consist of the end of season 3 and beginning of season 4. This is a must buy if you enjoy slap-stick humor with few tangents. Unlike Family Guy, American Dad keeps the focus on the primary and secondary plot lines without random flashbacks that distract from the main story. Considered by many as a newer take on the same concept as The Simpsons, American Dad is an enjoyable TV series that is accessible to anyone over 13 that will make you laugh until it hurts.
