Hayley dates a Stan lookalike and Steve hangs out with a bunch of chicks. As in, birds. Rate/review it here!

It seemed like the end of the episode was cut off, because there was no real joke. It seemed like a line or two of Stan's were cut off.
I caught the cut-short ending as well and checked out the full version on Hulu.
I smell censorship. With the wild fires tearing through California, Fox was afraid to show Hayley igniting an entire forest in anger. Either way, this ending wouldn't help this shameless Family guy rip-off.
UP AND ATOM!
I didn't know the plot before watching it, so that bit with Hayley and the look-alike in bed was one of the most shocking "commercial break cliffhangers" I've ever seen. Right up there with Riley staking Spike on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".
1. "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"
2. "The Way We Was"
3. "Summer of 4 Ft. 2"
4. "Boy Scoutz in the Hood"
5. "Bart's Comet"
6. "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Badasssss Song"
7. "Lisa On Ice"
8. "Bart Sells His Soul"
9. "Homer at the Bat"
10. "Lisa's Pony"
Uhhh....I'll be back! Pruh-Probably.
The general premise and gross-out factor of this episode was a tough hurdle, although the blow was softened a bit with Francine being disgusted with it all. I found Hayley pretty unlikeable in this show, but at least I rooted for someone this time: Stan. For perhaps the first time in the show, I felt some sympathy for him (after he said, "You used to watch Sesame Street," a good line in that context). The storyline had some decent pacing and a couple good gags (I liked the dancing chicks), but the show still retained it's raunchy cynicism that makes most of the humor a bitter pill to swallow. And I found the subplot pretty unsatisfying.
However, in defense of the show--and this is odd coming from someone that made a thread asking why everyone liked it so much--it does a decent job at differentiating itself from Family Guy. It started off as a clone, but the tighter stories and lack of cutaways/celebrity gags make it feel like it has more of its own feel (despite the similarities in the art style).
a rare miss. it wasnt all the engaging and not nearly as funny as all the other episodes this season or last. 33/5
Did anybody else get a kick out of seeing Hayley rip up "Superfudge" in a flashback? I thought it was a nice, authentic reference...that book was one of my favourites as a kid.
I thought this episode had some pretty funny puns and jokes. I laughed til it hurt, when Francine thought it was Stan who was making out with Hayley. "YOU MONSTER!!!" XDDD
The plot was funny in itself, and the writing was actually pretty well-done.
Last week's was better though, imo.
I would give it a 4/5
May it burn your eyeballs, and leak into your anus!
While I agree that after the first season AD did differentiate itself a bit more from FG, it still feels TOO close to being just a FG minus the cutaways. Like a receptacle for the jokes that weren't good enough for FG.
My major complaints: Characters are too mean and uncaring of each other in both series, Roger is less of an alien and more of a Stewie/Brian hybrid, Klaus the goldfish was an ill conceived character that quickly lost any reason to be in the show (aka AD's answer to Meg).
AD is at its best when it has a full on CIA plot or plays up the "American family living with an alien", but unfortunately this is rare.
Can't wait for an hour and a half of Seth McFarlane! Hell, give Quagmire a spinoff and make it two hours!
