Tries too hard to be different.
3 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Flying with TV tropes can be a major problem for many television series'. American Dad is seeming to do the opposite. It is flying to hard against them, and if that's better, it is marginally so. The American Dad charm of small awkward moments and character-driven plots is gone in this episode, and in it's place is flat-out uncomfortable and cringingly random events barely strung together to create a story. It tosses the previous seasons under the bus with no respect for itself, and that's sad to see on what was a clever show with it's own niche. It seems to try to hard in these later seasons to stand out from the flurry of adult animated television shows, and in doing so is removing the reasons why anyone would want to watch it.
