I have always preferred American Dad over MacFarlane's other great work in Family Guy, mainly because this show can go where Family Guy can not. Family Guy is the more popular of the two shows and has to keep a consistent take on itself, where as American Dad is free to experiment with more interesting ideas. This episode displays this perfectly with its imaginative setting, well timed action, and mind blowing score. I can not bring myself to describe the plot beyond "Jeff is on an alien slave ship" because I feel that it might ruin the full impact of the episode for anyone else. Jeff is a character I never really even liked on the show before this episode, he was just that generic idealist, and I was happy to see him abducted a few episodes back. Now I think he may have become my favorite character on the show. In this episode his ideals become more fleshed out and transform into a beacon of hope in the dismal ship he is on. The highlight of the episode for me however is the song "Majestic" by Wax Fang, the scene in which it appears is probably one of the best animated and gorgeous scenes that I have seen on any of MacFarlane's shows and the episode is worth seeing for the song alone. Trust me people if you watch only one episode from this show watch this one for it is beautiful, and who knows it may lead to one of MacFarlane's best spin offs ever.
