American Dad's most outrageous episode ever!

You have got to hand it to the American Dad writers, they pretty much tired out every possible C.I.A storyline and political joke they could think of in the first three seasons, so it's nice to know they can do a decent spy spoof which does not feel out of place with the rest of the show.

* SPOILERS * The cast is the normal American Dad cast, but they all have James Bond style roles. The episode in it's self is a James Bond spoof, with the hero agent ( Stan Smith,) The woman who throws herself at him, (Francine- a.k.a Sexpun decum.) The evil villain, (Roger- a.k.a tear jerker) and Steve has a role as Q, who makes inventions for agent Stan.

The episode has a typical James Bond set up, Tearjerker is trying to take over the world from his secret lair and it's up to Stan to stop him. On the face of it, this does not sound very watch worthy, but soon the Austin Powers type humor begins to creep in and it is a laugh a minute.

The jokes never seem to stop failing in this episode, and never seem to be overdone or tired. The pacing is just right, and the spoofs of James Bond scenes are priceless. The falling down lair of Tearjerker makes you giggle, as you remember just how pathetic the original movies they are spoofing are.

In the end Stan wins, but it leaves us with a shot of Tearjerker possibly climbing out of the volcano which he was thrown into, so I hope there are more Tearjerker episodes to come, because it's more entertaining and miles more funny that a golden turd storyline.

Whatever happened to that storyline by the way?
