Hilarious!
11 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect from American Dad, but it's certainly quite funny. I thought this would be a ripoff of Family Guy, but this show uses a different brand of humor. It doesn't make fun of pop culture, but uses humor to create zany situations. I like how they make Stan over-the-top and way too caring about the CIA.

This pilot episode is about Stan and his wackiness. He uses his power to get his son, Steve voted in as class president. But as president, Steve goes above and beyond with his power.

There were many hilarious moments in this show. I liked the confrontation between God and George W. Bush. I think the alien and the German goldfish are quite funny.

Overall, this is a hilarious start to a surprisingly funny series. I truly like this kind of humor. I rate this episode 9/10.
