"Even if we don't spend all our time together, we're gonna spend all OF time together."
22 April 2016 | by tobymcflySee all my reviews

Beautiful.

This episode is all about reincarnation, and it is done very brilliantly. Something I thought American Dad was never capable of. I'm not really a religion person, more spiritual. I believe that life is a cycle and our souls carry on to the next life. Sounds crazy yeah, that's because I AM crazy and don't really care what anyone thinks about what I believe in. Life is a circle, and it is the Circle of Life; Lion King circa 1994.

Whoever is saying the show dropped in quality after the move to TBS, can go spend all OF time touching themselves. If there is one episode that can get your hopes up again, it's this one. No decapitated heads or super violent deaths makes this one of the best of season 11, and one of my personal favorites. Also, this episode contains probably the most heartfelt, profound, warm moment between Stan and Francine. I can't remember the last time American Dad made me go "Awwwwwwwww". The side plot is pretty funny too.

So.....check this one out AD fans and non AD fans alike!
