American Dad - Wasn't Impressed

First, let me start by saying, I'm a huge fan of Family Guy, and typically, anything that pokes fun at the Right is A-Ok with me, but this wasn't that great.

It's too close to Family Guy - talking alien and goldfish swapped for Stewie and Brian...ehhh...but, the 19-year-old dog was pretty funny.

As for the Simpsons - I hate when famous people are on the Simpsons as themselves, unless it's an add-on to the main story that doesn't revolve around a celebrity (think Paul & Linda McCartney at the very end of the "Lisa Becomes a Vegetarian" episode).

I like it best when famous people are the voice of a character - Beverly D'Angelo as Lurleen Lumpkin or Michelle Pfiefer as Mindy.

With that being said, Ned's "Passion of Cain & Abel" was first-rate. The gore, the violence, the "Massachusetts Approves Gay Marriage" headlines...it's doesn't get any better than that. It almost made up for a pretty crappy episode.

If you've got the lead-in from the Super Bowl, you really have to do better than this effort. If you have "celebrities" on the Simpsons and you have to make them wear sweatshirts with their names on them because people can't recognize their voice or charicature, they probably shouldn't be on the show.
