    plenty of people here didn't like it, but I thought it was funny and pretty topical. I like the whole god / bush / cheny thing

    It was ok. I thought Family Guy was a bit much at first, but it grew on me. Maybe this will too. It just doesn't seem as good. And it's no Futurama (or Invader Zim, for that matter).

    Sigh, why are the good ones always cancelled too soon? RIP Wonderfalls.

    About time someone made a thread! :)

    I was wondering what people thought of it, too. It got a thumbs down from most of the people at school. Was there a certain amount of slant towards the left or right? That *could* explain it, if true.

    I just thought it wasn't nearly as funny as family guy. It almost seemed like a place for jokes that weren't quite funny enough to make it into family guy. The only really funny character was the goldfish klaus.

    after the initial "hi JOHN, how are you doing?" "im fine SUSAN. how are you" and so forth i thought it was absolutely hilarious, especially when he had kidnapped hilary duff.

    I thought it was funny although Family Guy, i think, is still much better.

    I can't get over the toast popping moment - when the toast pops and he swings around and shoots it with an entire clip. Haha! It's hilarious to watch, and very much a (extreme) look at how our country is today. :D

    btw - I def. think it had a left slant.

    I thought it was funny...not Family-Guy-funny, but still funny.

    I liked the God/Bush/Cheney thing, as well as the part where he's driving home with all the glass shards stuck in his face..."okay I overdid it a little."

    did the german fish bother anyone else...? although i must say, about the only time i chuckled was when the guy was going down on the skies puckering like a fish. Not quite as good as Family Guy in my opinion. But it could be that I was spoiled. And I didn't like the alien.. whose voice is a mixture of a gay peter and cleveland's.

    it's trying to be family guy, but from the left (as some have mentioned). i like family guy because it kinda stays centric, but this one is very biased, and there's only so long that it's funny.

    i think they should cancel this show and bring back either futurama or invader zim (as someone else already mentioned). just a thought....

    I thought it was kinda funny... Not on the level of Family Guy, though... IMO, they are 2 different kinds of humor... I see Family Guy as the more blunt, straight-forward kind of humor. American Dad seemed to be a bit more complex... To me, it seemed too much like a children's cartoon of these days with adult humor...

    Perhaps it will get better. I'm waiting for the next season of Family Guy...
