| One of the most consistently smart and funny comedies of the last 20 years
They are currently in season 14 and this show somehow still makes me laugh out loud more than almost any other show on TV.

I took a break from the show a couple of years ago, as around season 11 it seemed to be showing signs of wear, but wow did they course-correct.

Seasons 13 and 14 are among some of the best ever, and the writing is outstanding. They are still packing every episode with an insane amount of jokes, even on the level of <10 Simpsons. Also, this show somehow manages to tackle very common and complex human behavior in the most outlandish ways.

The fact that this show has been hilarious for 14 straight years is a feat I don't think any other show outside of South Park has achieved.

I really hope time helps more people find this absolute gem of a show.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


From season five, episode twelve, "May the Best Stan Win", it was revealed at the end of the episode exactly when Stan and Francine were born. Stan was born in 1967, and Francine in 1971. We see this information written on their gravestones when they died and are buried next to each other. Today, 2017, Stan is fifty-years-old and Francine is forty-six-years-old. Both will die in 2067, Stan will be one hundred-years-old, and Francine will be ninety-six-years-old.


Stan Smith: I'm going over to the Juice Bar. You wouldn't like it, it's not about reliving childhood trauma it's all positive and about Juice.


In the Smith house there's a window at the stair landing that appears through most of season one, but is never seen again in subsequent seasons.

Crazy Credits

As of the 2008-2009 season, the intro sequence has been completely redone with more modern animation. There are a few minor changes to what happens during the sequence. For instance, Haley puts a peace sign post-it on Stan which Francine subsequently removes, and Klaus kicks Stan his car keys. The old "different newspaper" gag is removed, and instead each intro features Roger in the car with Stan, wearing a different outfit in each episode.

Alternate Versions

Up until the '08-'09 season, the opening credits featured a shot of Stan looking at a newspaper headline, which would be a joke headline relating to recent events. Episodes shown on Adult Swim have the headlines blanked out, leaving Stan looking at just white space. The credit sequence for new episodes for '08 - '09 eliminate this sequence altogether.
