Stan Does it Again, TOO FUNNY
1 February 2011 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

If I could turn on the TV and tune into a show that was actually worth suffering through corporate commercials, it would be American Dad. All of their episodes have been consistently funny.Smith in Hand is an early episode where Stan tries to teach his son the grossly misinterpretation of dangers that happen when you masturbate only to become a hypocrite of his own preaching. Throughout the whole show, its so Very funny to watch as he tries to hide this from his son who thinks his dad is a perfect role model. Rodger, after a hand to hand combat with Hayley decides to become a bartender after she calls him on his lazy ways of just watching TV all the time and sitting around doing nothing.
