CIA agent Stan Smith is a typical American Dad. His devoted wife Francine dotes on him, despite his occasionally difficult personality. In typical fashion, his kids Steve and Haley have rebelled against his conservative politics. All in all, a standard American family. Well, aside from the fay space alien and the East German ski-jumper whose mind is stuck in the body of a goldfish.

Just like his first series, Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane’s American Dad is at this point an animated-comedy mainstay. It’s still going strong and will soon be entering its almost unprecedented 18th season.

What the critics are saying:
