Our Official List of MUST-WATCH AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE EPISODES

26 Apr
It’s been two years since we’ve published anything on this blog. The loss of Aqua Teen hit us hard. Now that The Simpsons is getting on in years, and we’ve also lost Regular Show, and Gumball is ending– American Dad! is still on, but different (and so on) animated TV shows seem on a strange decline (at least that’s how it seems to us).

I’ve been writing reviews over at BubbleBlabber — most recently for episodes of Family Guy, American Dad! and The Simpsons, among others.

We’re still Aqua Teen fanatics here- we run the biggest, baddest Aqua Teen fan page on Instagram – follow us there if you can/want to– we’re over 8000 strong!

Many people have asked, so here is a comprehensive list of our favorite Aqua Teen episodes. This is a selection culled from seasons 1-11, in chronological order, just how it should be.

There are 58 episodes here, and combined, they will run you about 10.5 hours total to watch. That’s not much! Just a little over a normal workday! You should watch all of these if you haven’t already.

The episodes with asterisks/stars next to them are our absolute favorite Aqua Teen episodes, ever. But the whole list really is a best-of-the-best type thing. The ones we can watch over and over again.

You may disagree, based on your personal tastes. But these are our picks.

On American Dad! Moving To TBS — A Belated Father’s Day Post

18 Jun

American Dad! Stan Smith and KlausIt’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of American Dad!, and I have been ever since this great show began airing in 2005. I’ve had the pleasure of watching the show evolve from its humble origins, and have witnessed both the jokes and the animation improve over the years.

If I remember correctly, I saw the series premiere of American Dad! (entitled “Pilot”) when it originally aired on FOX, directly following Super Bowl XXXIX on February 6th, 2005. It only took viewing a few episodes for me to realize that I much preferred American Dad! to Family Guy.

Why?

For one thing, American Dad! has no cut-aways. Also, the show’s stellar writing contains much more weird, yet somehow more thoughtfully organized humor. It’s much more subtle, and not so heavy-handed. Finally, the characters — especially those of Steve and Roger — are all-time favorites of mine in the cartoon world. They’re just so bizarre and hilarious.

On July 16th, 2013, it was announced that American Dad! had quietly been cancelled by Fox, leaving the show’s tenth season as its final run on the network. Shortly thereafter, however, cable station TBS picked it up for two seasons – 15 episodes (previously announced as 11th season, but will serve as a continuation of the 10th season), which are slated to begin airing October 30th on Monday nights. The true purpose of this cancellation/relocation was to make room for new animated broadcasts on Animation Domination, such as another animated series from Seth MacFarlane called Bordertown.

Regarding the network move, Mike Barker stated “It’s going to be the same American Dad! just in a different place”. At Comic Con 2013, Mike Barker revealed that an American Dad! movie (possibly centering on Roger and set on his birth planet) may take place in the future. It was further hinted that an American Dad! movie may already even be partially written.

Unfortunately, Barker left the series over creative differences (and production not running smoothly) when early production for season 11 began — in November 2013.

Hopefully, the loss of Mike Barker won’t change the show much or cause it to suffer. From here on out, Matt Weitzman will serve as the show’s sole showrunner.

It is unknown if any movie plans will be cancelled following Barker’s exit from the series.

Will American Dad! be able to be even raunchier on TBS? Maybe. We hope so! These shows are ALWAYS exponentially funnier with the less censorship they recieve.

A total of three more American Dad! episodes will be shown on FOX on Sundays at 9:30pm. Two will air September 14th (“Roger Passes the Bar” and “From Russia With Love”). The final FOX episode is titled “Blagsnarst: A Love Story”, will feature Kim Kardashian as another alien (love interest of Roger), and will air September 21st.

Matt Weitzman said at San Diego Comic Con 2014 that the show will have a cold opening on TBS, unlike the newspaper/Roger disguise gags of the past openings.

The remaining known American Dad! episodes that have been written and/or produced and have been given production codes and titles, (presumably TBS episodes) are as follows:

9AJN01 “Blondes Versus Brunettes”
9AJN02 “CIAPow”
9AJN03 “A Tiny Affair”
9AJN04 “Brobot”
9AJN05 “Scents and Sensei-bility”
9AJN06 “Now and Gwen” (likely the episode featuring Uma Thurman as Gwen, Francine’s sister)
9AJN13 “Holy Shit, Jeff’s Back!”
9AJN?? “LGBSteve”
9AJN?? “American Fung”
9AJN?? “Seizures Suit Stanny”
9AJN?? “The Shrink”
9AJN?? “Dreaming of a White Porsche Christmas”
9AJN?? “Morning Mimosa”
9AJN?? “A Star Is Reborn”
9AJN?? “Manhattan Magical Murder Mystery Tour”
