American Dad! Season 14, Episode 10
A Nice Night for a Drive
The polar opposite of last week’s A-, this episode earns its keep through a steady string of jokes- from referencing ‘El perro, el perro, es mi corazón, El gato, el gato, el gato no es bueno. Cilantro es cantante, Cilantro es muy famoso, Cilantro es el hombre con el queso…’ to a bunch of solid one-liners.
Plot wise, Klaus has traditionally been an underutilized asset in American Dad’s run- largely due to him being denied character progression and forced to reset his fishy state at the end of each episode. But it’s always nice to see him let loose, and Klaus and Stan is a pairing that hasn’t gotten old.
The real motor of the show these days, though, is Roger and his elaborate multiple identities, which serve as a running gag and meta reminder about the supposed rich, interior lives of even the most extraneous sitcom extras. The suspended logic also works wonders in allowing him to lapse into murderous, plot-sustaining frenzies.
Now is your time to feel fear, Azamar.
I’ll go to East Chimdale when I want a bunch of rats to chew my dick off in an abandoned baseball card store.
WHO WAS THAT?!
