Sad & Not the best made of a touchy topic...
17 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I just didn't find this episode of A.D. funny at all. Frankly it was sad, and not that they didn't try to made light of a sad situation.. they did.. but it's one that undoubtedly most of the viewers will relate to: a pet dying. Yes they kind of barely save it in the end... (by trying to make it end on an up note) and there's a message or two (one quite political in there). But I really just don't see what the motivation was for this episode. It's not funny and American Dad is not the show you watch to have those schindlers list type moments. It's what you put on to laugh at really funny outrageous even inappropriate stuff - not feel more depressed than when you first tuned in. Maybe they were trying on something new here to gauge the reaction? I also like rogers strange character usually, this episode made me dislike him intently. There's a thousand theme's they could have focused this episode on, I'm puzzled why it was done like this. Glad it's a one off.... :-\
