Wow. Perfect.
12 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was about to give up on American Dad. 9 seasons of mostly so-so entertainment. I watched it more to keep my mind distracted than to enjoy quality TV. While I do think there's the odd really good episode, this one took me by surprise. I hadn't watched the show on Netflix for about a week and a half, which is a while for me, but I figured I'd watch one more since I had nothing better to do. I thought the title sounded interesting and once the story actually started moving I was quite invested, the episode somehow managed to perfectly balance a real, almost heart breaking story and make a farce of the entire indie genre at the same time. There were actual deep moments, metaphors that really made you think and at the same time cheesy lessons that made you critical of indie films too. Really a brilliant piece of work, if I could buy this one episode and add it to my Blu-Ray collection I would. I hope other people get a chance to watch this too and that maybe I've convinced a few more people to make it to this point, because I honestly think, it's worth it.
