I rave about American Dad to people in the UK but many haven't seen it. I feel its superior to the over rated, Fanmily Guy. Family Guy gets the ratings and viewers because it uses shock tactics. American Dad, to me, is far more satirical and witty without trying as hard (therefore more on par with the Simpsons). It is too, a send up of 'the perfect, Republican American , family. They get involved and experience everything that proves their ideology is stupid, but still Dad comes back to it , blinded by some false sense of patriotism. Fantastic. Must get the old man to buy me the box set for xmas as I always miss episodes in the UK, as they're on late on BBC3.
