American Dad on Fox
Fox foists vile values on
oblivious families. Say that three times fast.
Imagine viewers in the Central
and Mountain time zones sitting down to Sunday dinner with the television on in
the background. Surely a cartoon that airs as early as 6:30 p.m. must be
family- friendly. On the contrary, the twisted animated series American Dad
is one of the most offensive programs on television today. And the June 14th
rerun is a prime example of the twisted family values it promotes. For strong
sexual content, American Dad has been named Worst TV Show of the
In this episode, Stan’s teenage
son, Steve, locates Stan’s estranged father, Jack, in prison. However, the
reunion between the three generations of Smith men is soured by Stan’s inability
to trust his crooked, neglectful father.
"So your wicked ways caught up
with you?" Stan asks.
Jack replies, "Yes, and now
those wicked ways are going to grab me from behind, shove me to the floor, and
break in my rump like a new baseball glove."
"Right in front of the kid,
that's nice,” Stan complains as Steve sits next to Jack.
Steve interjects, "This is a
chance for you two to reconnect. Let's bail him out and let him stay with us
until the trial."
Stan explains, “I'm not doing a
thing for him."
"Then do it for us,” Steve
pleads, “This time it was a bike ride, but who knows what else we can miss out
on? Maybe a game of catch, taking me to my first prostitute, scolding me for
falling in love with aforementioned prostitute, bowling."
Stan agrees to let Jack stay
with them until his trial. But Stan disapproves of the bond forming between
Steve and Jack. Stan is convinced that Jack is using them to curry favor with
the judge at his trial. When Stan refuses to provide Jack with a character
reference, Steve and Jack run away.
While on the lam, Steve tells
Jack, “You’re the only role model I need.”
Steve dons a makeshift
eye-patch in order to copy Jack, who wears one over his missing eye. Steve’s
eye-patch, however, is made of some questionable materials.
“Is that a condom and a rubber
band?” Jack asks.
“Sure is,” Steve responds
Later, after a raucous night,
Steve and Jack drive down the street in the car.
"Wow, what a night!” Steve
beams, “My dad would never have let me sit in a car in a dark alley while he
went behind a dumpster with a Malaysian lady in a shiny dress."
Jack replies, "Thank you for
letting me borrow your eye patch.”
Compelled to honesty, Jack
admits his faults to Steve. Jack confesses, "I robbed that jewelry store. And
your dad’s car, I was trying to steal it. And from the minute you bailed me
out, I’ve been working you and your dad for that character reference. And that
convict wasn't going to rape me in the shower; I was going to rape him."
Ultimately, Jack turns himself
in because he doesn’t want to ruin Stan’s relationship with Steve.
Cue heartwarming music.
Not long ago, family-centric
shows actually showcased healthy families. Nowadays, family dysfunction trumps
For strong sexual content aired
during family hour, American Dad rightly deserves the title of
Worst TV Show of the Week.
