American Dad! A Smith in the Hand (2005– )

Was originally rated TV-MA for "brief cartoon nudity" due to a brief shot of Stan's bare bottom.

When Stan tells Hayley to "Finish him!" as she is fighting Roger, it is a reference to the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games.

When Stan attempts to gain control of television, the 'monstrous enemies' he displays to his superiors at the CIA are Osama bin Laden, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong-il and Paris Hilton.

Roger opens up his bar, Roger's Place, which becomes a reoccurring location in the series.

I've seen a lot of comedy and this particular episode is by far the funniest I have seen. I have seen all Simpsons, Family Guy, but episode of American Dad cracked me so consistently up. It's brilliant!! American Dad is the best comedy I have ever seen and I cannot wait to get hold of the DVD. I just hope that there are many more series to come. I thought Family Guy couldn't be beat but I was wrong, American Dad is even funnier. Stan Smith is a wonderfully comic character, and when he went into the trash can to try and find some more tubes of cream I thought was incredibly funny, as was the scene where Francine forgot something and catches Stan with his pants down. Awesome stuff!
If I could turn on the TV and tune into a show that was actually worth suffering through corporate commercials, it would be American Dad. All of their episodes have been consistently funny.Smith in Hand is an early episode where Stan tries to teach his son the grossly misinterpretation of dangers that happen when you masturbate only to become a hypocrite of his own preaching. Throughout the whole show, its so Very funny to watch as he tries to hide this from his son who thinks his dad is a perfect role model. Rodger, after a hand to hand combat with Hayley decides to become a bartender after she calls him on his lazy ways of just watching TV all the time and sitting around doing nothing.
I enjoy this episode. It's really funny. I love how much Stan is a hypocrite in this episode, but I also hate him for it.

In this episode, Stan teaches Steve about sex, and tells him that masturbation is a sin. But when Stan injures himself and has to apply cream to his you-know-what, he becomes addicted to masturbation. When he is found out by Steve, Stan realizes that it's TV's fault. So, he gets the CIA to give him control over the Langley Falls TV networks, and makes sure everyone knows about all the sins in life.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
