Product DescriptionSpecial Features
"Im not beloved," CIA Agent Stan Smith is shocked to discover after eavesdropping on his mocking neighbours in the episode, "I Cant 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 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 dont grab you, the rapid-fire random gags will. Like King of the Hills 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," Stans dizzy wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal) agrees to be the surrogate for the Smiths 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 thats plain nuts. In another episode, "Bush Comes to Dinner" for a night of drunken debauchery; some easy-target Bush-bashing is 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 humour. As Stan tells an unamused Hayley at one point, "You dont get a willy, you dont 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. Stans 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 sets 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, arent we supposed to talk about the episode?" one participant tries to steer one digressive conversation). --Donald Liebenson

There's only a couple of bad points: Klaus is becoming less and less funny, the extras are good but not great, I miss the casts interviews and stuff like that. Also the quality of the DVD itself is disappointing, you can see it's just a cheap transfer of the original American DVD, especially when you pause the picture. On one episode the screen even wobbles noticeably for a couple of seconds.
These points however do not dtract from an overall great product that will give you hours of viewing pleasure.
Buy it and enjoy!
This show, in my opinion does not get the recognition it deserves, I always hear people going on about how Family Guy is amazing and hilarious. Yes I have all the Family Guy seasons as well as American Dad, at first when I saw the first season of AD, I said "it`s good, but it`s no Family Guy" Now I realise that AD is going up and FG is stooping down, on almost every episode there is foul language or rude scenes and frankly I don`t find that funny.. but AD has barley any of that, just the odd swear word and thats it. That is why I love American Dad, it`s humour has a limit, and lets the laughter flow naturally, where Family Guy pushes you and pushes you to laugh by having repetitive scenes and going back to the same jokes, sometimes you just want them to get on with it...
If you are a AD fan, you will love this and every other season, if you are new to AD, grab them all if you can and settle into a new and more witty humour! :D
This season contains episodes like "Dope & Faith" in which Stan finds the perfect friend who is atheist & "Black Mystery Month" a truly big conspiracy about peanut butter..
I loved every episode especially "The Vacation Goo" which is my favorite.
This is definitely worth buying.
These episodes are a lot more subtle, clever and varied than those in the first series. Roger and his costumes take a more central part as most episodes run along two or three narrative threads. Steve has become a more complex character, while Stan has developed from being a one dimensional right-wing CIA man into a troubled character whose right-wing character explains a lot about his past and hides a lot about his present.
This season feels a lot more organic - in that the characters now have lives rather than just being constructs in Seth MacFarlane's notebook - and the show is a lot richer for it.
The humour is sharp - both for the obvious gags and the more hidden ones.
It's like the evil (and better) offspring of the Simpsons.
