Pretty Good Episode!
13 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third episode in the American Dad series, "Stan Knows Best" is a good, solid episode. It has some funny jokes and is rather entertaining episode, but I did find it a bit annoying or at least I found Stan more annoying than funny in this episode. But the rest of the family is spot on and I still love Roger the alien.

This episode has Hayley dying her hair green much to the horror of Stan. While Hayley is sleeping, Stan cuts her hair off. Hayley is shocked and angered and moves into her boyfriend's Jeff van. She also gets a job working as a waitress at a strip club.

Overall, this is a solid episode even though it may be the weakest one yet. But it has many good moments and is very entertaining. I rate this episode 8/10.
