American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman, for the Fox Broadcasting Company. Set in the fictional town of Langley Falls, Virginia, the series centers on the eccentric Smith family. The Smith family consists of title character Stan, Francine, Hayley, Steve, Roger, an alien whom Stan has rescued from government capture and harbors in the family's attic; Jeff Fischer, Hayley's boyfriend and eventual husband; and Klaus, the family's pet who is really an East German man trapped by the CIA in a fish's body.
In his reviews, Strider shows that he is quite fond of American Dad! for its humor and themes. He easily considers it superior to Family Guy, though he described the episode American Fung as one of the worst episodes in all of cartoon media because it featured insensitive jokes featuring the physically handicapped and an on-screen lobotomy.
