    Rate and Review American Dad: Gorillas in the Mist(6AJN10)

    In the Season 6 finale, Stan and Steve become best buds while on a boat, but this new friendship leads to some problems at the local zoo. Meanwhile Roger learns what Country Music is all about. Review and Discuss:

    EDIT: 3/4 is obviously supposed to be 3/5, I must've missed that, sorry.

    The definition of average. Both stories started out way too slowly and Roger's turned out to be a pretty big downer. I liked most of the stuff at the Zoo though. One of the lesser episodes of the season and not one which I will likely remember. The post-classic era "Bart Has Two Mommies" was better which is not a good sign. 3/5

    when the gorilla came into play i thought 'Are they really copying a post-classic average Simpsons episode?' but luckily it was different. anyway i liked the episode quite a bit. Stan talking on the phone with Steve in the room, as if he was actually talking to Francine (and the 'Thanks a lot, now I'm in trouble' line), Roger's first country song, Roger's country song about the ugly girl, Steve repeating 'purple hat' to get Stan to laugh, etc. were things i found funny. not one of their more memorable episodes but i thought it was pretty good.

    I thought the same thing, though the end with the two caretakers translating made up for it.

    The rest was completely average. Both plots have been done to death ad nauseum, but as usual it had enough good jokes to make it worth watching.

    But seriously, what the hell is with Seth Macfarlane shows and showing dogs brutally getting killed??

    3/5

    Not sure how many more Stan + Steve bond episodes I can stomach. Didn't even really care much about Roger's plot.

    Not sure if it's just me, but the second half of this season overall was pretty mediocre, and this episode was no exception. :/

    Yep real lack of ambition this season. Last year we got episodes like Raptures Delight and The Great Space Roaster, this season it's all been domestic quarrels. Still it was at least good to see Hayley and Bullock in this episode as they've been massively underused. Didn't Patrick Stewart raise his fee or something? Feels like the whole season has suffered from budget cuts. It's quite annoying considering how much I started raving about it to people and now it just feels like the writers can't even be bothered. A lot of shows go off the rails at this point, but they seem to have avoided that by going in the most mundane direction possible. At least Family Guy made the effort to try a few experimental episodes this season.

    Is Hayley still married to Jeff now? I can't even understand the logic behind setting that up if they're not even going to use them.

    The only episodes I consider memorable this season:
    100 A.D.
    There Will Be Bad Blood
    The People vs Martin Sugar
    A Pinata Named Desire

    and Son of Stan, Stanny Boy and Frantastic, School Lies, Home Wrecker and Flirting with Disaster were okay. Everything else is forgettable.

    Meanwhile, the last season had several memorably great episodes. Only a couple duds, the rest were good to great.

    Anyone know the entire joke that Steve was telling on the boat? Or did they just make up the start and end of it for the episode?

    Just was looking at old American Dad R&R threads and apparently there is someone who thinks Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls and For Whom the Sleigh Bell Tolls are "forgettable"

    @Homer Samson, Honestly they're not really all that great, but at the very least they're among two of the better episodes in a rather forgettable season. And at least For Whom the Sleigh Bell Tolls is watchable, which can't be said for most of the Christmas episodes that came afterwards (especially the one from the following season).

    This episode on the otherhand I'd classify as forgettable, and pretty much sums up how bland and mediocre this season was as a whole. But I'd prefer a finale that's forgettable instead of one that's unwatchable like the previous or some of the later ones like The Longest Distance Relationship or Seizure Suit Stanny.

    It's amazing how effortless this show used to be when it came to comedy. Even if the plots here aren't that inspired, the jokes took the episode over the top. I really liked how Stan made it a point to mention how he got his ass down to the zoo.

    And season six is forgettable? It was full of classic episodes. Even the weaker ones ("School Lies," "Stanny Boy and Frantastic") were really funny.

    contextually season 6 is for sure a step-down from season 5, but the new episodes make season 6 look like the funniest show of all time. i took seasons 6-8 for granted

    I'll say this much, while this season is very boring as fuck (two to three truly worthwhile episodes and an OK one or two), it's still better than Season 7 and any of the TBS seasons put together.

    Just because Season 7 gave us Stan's Best Friend doesn't mean it sucks. It also gave us Old Stan in the Mountain, Hurricane!, Season's Beatings, Stanny Tendergrass, The Scarlett Getter, Virtual In-stan-ity, and The Kidney Stays in the Picture. And Hot Water, but that one is pretty divisive.
    Best and Worst Episode per Season:
    1: Krusty Gets Busted/Homer's Night Out 2: One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish/Bart's Dog Gets an 'F' 3: Bart the Murderer/Saturdays of Thunder 4: Homer the Heretic/So Its Come To This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5: Cape Feare/Lady Bouvier's Lover 6: Homie the Clown/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7: Raging Abe Simpson and his Grumbling Grandson in " The Curse of the Flying Hellfish"/Scenes From the Class Struggle in Springfield 8: The Springfield Files/The Old Man and the Lisa 9: The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson/Miracle on Evergreen Terrace 10: Mayored to the Mob/Homer Simpson in: Kidney Trouble 11: Grift of the Magi/Eight Misbehavin' 12: Trilogy of Error/I'm Goin' to Praiseland 13: The Blunder Years/The Lastest Gun in the West 14: Moe Baby Blues/The Strong Arms of the Ma 15: My Mother the Carjacker/Co-Dependent's Day 16: The Heartbroke Kid/Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass 17: The Seemingly Never-Ending Story/The Bonfire of the Manatees 18: The Mook, The Chef, The Wife, and Her Homer/The Boys of Bummer 19: Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind/Husbands and Knives 20: Gone Maggie Gone/Lisa the Drama Queen 21: The Squirt and the Whale/The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed 22: Homer Scissorhands/The Fight Before Christmas 23: The Book Job/Lisa Goes Gaga 24: The Saga of Carl/Love is a Many-Splintered Thing 25: Brick Like Me/What to Expect When Bart's Expecting 26: Sky Police/The Musk Who Fell to Earth 27: Barthood/Every Man's Dream 28: 22 for 30/The Caper Chase 29: Flanders' Ladder/Singin' in the Lane 30: Woo-hoo Dunnit?/I Want You (She's So Heavy)

    @Homer Samson, And I hate every single one of those episodes listed barring the last two. Hurricane! actually ranks for me as one of the show's all-time worst, while the latter two are the "Best" episodes that season but even then they're both super mediocre at best and Hot Water even back then was one of the show's most wildly overrated episodes.

    Why do you think the Scarlett Getter is terrible?

    @Homer Samson, It's the stock "Character is an annoying/irredeemable asshole for the first two thirds of the episode, than suddenly sympathetic in the last act" kind of episode which I hate that makes up at least half the episode count of any give season. And as usual, the episode goes a great job of making sure said character is a total piece of shit by having Stan imply that he'd be happy if Francine was actually dead and of course setting Roger up to be killed!

    The barely OK subplot is the episode's sole redeeming quality.

    @Trab Pu Kcip, Honestly for as boring and pointless as this episode is, I'd actually take it over Bart Has Two Mommies. One of the few times where the ripoff from AD! is actually slightly better than the source material.
