Did You Know?

Trivia:
In "American Dad!: Francine's Flashback (#1.4)" (2005), we find out that Francine was 20 in 1985. We can draw from this that Francine was born in 1965, and that in the cartoon she is around 40 years old. This is confirmed in "American Dad!: Tears of a Clooney (#1.23)" (2006), in which it is Francine's 39th birthday.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: In the first episode, the man whose brain was switched with Klaus's is shown at the 1986 Winter Olympics. There was no Winter Olympics in 1986; Winter Olympics were held in the same years as Summer Olympics (for example, 1984 in Sarajevo, and 1988 in Calgary) until 1994.See more »

Wasn't expecting too much. I underestimated this show., 10 November 2005
Author: Stonedwithoutdope from New Zealand

I was expecting this to just be a family guy clone with different character, This is more than that, its hilarious. The characters and humor are on the same sort of level as family guy but Seth McFarlane managed to work his magic and create a whole new different level of humor and wit for this show which sets itself apart from family guy.

A secret service FBI agent, prone to overreacting must find a way to use his skills to help his family and their new illegal alien housemate with basic troubles in life. Problem is sometimes it proves too much with hilarious results.

Remember this isn't a kid's show and I guess thats what makes this and family guy so special. They can put in all the added toilet humor it needs and the writers seem to know how to do it perfectly. The characters are great but the main character Stan Smith stands out above all the rest (With their alien friend coming in a close second). Anyone who wants a laugh, drop everything and watch this.
