AMERICAN DAD , REVIEW OF AN AMERICAN ANIMATED SITCOM - CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL

AMERICAN DAD ,  REVIEW OF AN AMERICAN ANIMATED SITCOM - CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL




"The Simpsons" does NOT amuse the common yank any more.

I had put a review of The Simpsons before in one of my posts.  You can read it if you punch into Google search MATT GROENING , THE UNSUNG GENIUS  VADAKAYIL

The step in sitcom "Family Guy" has run aground.

So enter the new sitcom "American Dad"-again of a dysfunctional all American family.. It started around 2005.

This one is teeming with sex, violence, toilet humor, non-sequiturs, "just for laughs" morbid absurdities, racial gags and "nothing off limits" biting satire, 

The language pushes the envelope on social acceptability, making it a less-than-ideal choice for young women and teens. 

American Dad pushes that morbid vulgarity envelope so hard , in fact, that the Parents Television Council recently asked its members to complain to the Federal Communications Commission, hoping to get the series sanctioned or fined.
  
There are no good messages or role models in American dad. 

Yet, if you understand the characters , an adult will find it hilarious. If you do NOT have an insight into the characters it is your own fault.


For example Dada Kondke's famous creepy dialogue ANDHERI RAAT MEIN DIYA TERI HAAT MEIN, must be understood for what it is.  


If you think it is about a young girl holding the lamp instead of "you know what"-- who is to blame?

Ditto with American dad. 

Being a sailor for 40 years I can tell you that our party jokes are NON-vegetarian. 

Sex takes preponderance. If not, even sh#t or fart will do.  And believe me, if you are not too prudish they can be down right funny.

Example?

Ram and Shyam , two bhaiyyas go for a crap in an open field after consuming lot of bhang ( marijuana in milk ) . 

Both are stoned . 

After the solemn deed , Ram instead of washing his own ass , starts washing Shyam's ass. ( We dont use toilet paper in Indian villages ) .

Shyam is now confused. 

He asks Ram " Abhe Raame , tum kiska gaand dho raha hai re?" ( Hey, Ram whose ass are you washing ?).

Ram replies knee jerk " Are, Saame , mein apna gaand dho raha hoon !" ( Shyam buddy , I am washing mE own ass !)

Ram is now confused and ponders for a while and cries out in deep distress--  " Fir hamara gaand kidhar hai?" (  If indeed so, pray, where in mE ass?" )

End of story-- 

This NON-veg joke is best told in Bhojpuri.


Let me describe the characters of American dad.

STAN—  Stan Smith works for the CIA at Langley falls Virginia Washington DC .

This all American dad with a gargantuan chin, , who fumbles more often than he scores.   He is ze typical Yank cowboy. Cowboys never hunted the outlaw alone,  they always rode with a posse for moral support . ( Even in modern wars they have ze coalition and ze allies-- it is gang bashing and bullying. )

But our man Stan is a lone ranger, who is always on red alert for terrorist activity  .

He can  go to any extreme to keep his beloved America from harm’s way.  Protecting USA in a most gung ho and ridiculous manner  is his life’s only mission.  

He has the terror-alert color code on his fridge, and has this knee-jerk reaction of shooting holes in the toaster whenever the toast pops up—what more evidence of paranoia do you want? 

He is THE staunchly neoconservative right wing Republican  and self-proclaimed American patriot who sees a deadly assassin on the grassy knoll in even the most innocent of situations. 

His conservatism is deliberately treated in the show as severe intolerance .  Stan  is on constant self imposed alert and hence is  emotionally disconnected from his family . He uses his warped idea of patriotism to justify obnoxious ( and hilariously!? for the Yanks )  bad behavior. 

He's shoot-first-ask-later attitude that gets him into severe trouble in just about every episode.  His typical knuckle headed optimism is hilarious.


FRANCINE— is Stan’s hot and sexy wife  who met him after college.

Poles apart from Stan she is level headed and loves her husband.  No wonder she spends most of her time trying to reason with gung ho Stan and talk him out of his crazy schemes.

Since she had a past life of wild sex and drug parties , she has a lot of excess baggage carefully hidden away. This would make her unpredictable and psychotic and at times she loses her way..

She stays and home and tried hard to be ze traditional wife and home maker , though not out of choice .  She's tried careers of her own, including real estate and her own bakery, but they didn't pan out.

Stan ignores the affections of his wife, though she is coveted from afar by Klaus, the ex-communist goldfish.  She is loyal to Stan and turns a Nelson’s eye to all his unabashed arrogance, trespasses and misdemeanors.


STEVE— is Stan’s and Francine’s 14 year old geeky high schooler son. He tries his level best  to live up to Stan's expectations but can never really measure up to the high standards in place for him.  The bar is set just too high.

This forces him to behave like a teenage dork by default.. 

He is a nerd and has even published his own book before puberty.  Though he is obsessed with gals , and tries hard to be cool and make a hit,  he just cant make it. This makes him a wimpy  R&B dork.  He and the family alien Roger embark on disastrous adventures frequently.

HAYLEY— is Stan’s and Francine's marijuana-smoking,  feminist cum activist daughter at the fag end of her teens, attending community college. 

Stan is strictly conservative and hence he is perpetually at odds with his daughter , resulting in loud arguments galore.  She being a new age hippie rebel does not approve of  Stan’s constant meddling in her internal affairs.  Despite Stan’s  best efforts Hayley continues in defiance as a left-wing liberal. 

Stan loves his daughter, but that doesn't necessarily mean he trusts her.  To spite Stan she becomes a stripper at one point, and to show their unconditional support and love as "good" ( though dysfunctional ) American parents,  Stan and Francine sit in the front row during one of her routines, cheering, making vulgar comments and tossing money. This can happen only in USA, right? 

To Hayley's credit, she never gives up her values, regardless of how much grief she gets at home.  She knows how and when to push her father's buttons whether it's by helping the homeless,  demanding women's rights , protecting the environment or taking on the NRA headlong. 

She has a stoner boyfriend, named Jeff who eventually moves into their home .

KLAUS— is a lecherous and attention starved talking gold fish secretly lusting for Stan’s wife Francine, thanks to a CIA experiment gone awry.  Klaus is a man’s mind  trapped in a goldfish body –a fish in whom the CIA implanted the brain of an East German Olympic ski jumper.

The family goldfish constantly hits on Francine totally obsessed after seeing her sexy body in the nude.  Klaus is talkative and always throws in his two cents regardless of whether anyone is listening.

So this is where BIG BOSS 6 got their warped idea of a talking goldfish from.

ROGER—is an effeminate, disguise wearing  alien who Stan has rescued from US government capture of Area 51, and secretly harbors in the family's attic, contrary to his patriotic values.  Coz Stan owes Roger a "life debt". 

Roger resents not being allowed to leave the house, and so has resorted to sarcasm , drinking wine and smoking cigarettes.  He spends his days drinking martinis and watching bad television. 

Though Roger has ambitions and needs, he's stuck in the attic of Stan’s  house, forbidden to reveal himself to the outside world.

So--

What all is fair game for the humor pool in this sitcom which amplifies the DECADENCE of American society

We have more than enough material as season 8 is going on.

Remember, it holds a TV-14 rating for suggestive dialogue (D), offensive language (L), moderate to strong sexual content (S), and graphic violence (V).

-- corny refrains like "Pedophilia Down as Childhood Obesity Goes Up", "Israel Pulls Out of Gaza, Gaza Not Pregnant",  "Economy Takes a Turn, Falls Down Flight of Stairs" etc

--  disgusting imagery such as a stray cat giving birth to kittens and actually showing the kittens coming out of the mother,  live bees flying inside Steve's open wound and stinging him from the inside etc

---- Stan leaving his family for a seductive, talking hot tub (Cee-Lo Green) and his distraught and loyal wife  Francine moving back into her adoptive parents’ house with equally distraught Klaus, Roger and the kids.

----Stan sitting naked in a hot tub with two gay neighbors.

--- a blitzkreig of tasteless material targetting God, Christians, Muslims, blacks, the homeless and handicapped people.

-- choking games, married swingers, incest, homosexual sex, ejaculation, cross-dressing and a boy damaging his penis etc

----Stan's boss at CIA ogling  pictures of his wife Francine and asking Stan to send more shots of her ample boobs.

-- people talking about urination, feces and the biological intricacies of a colostomy bag.

--- conceited and pathetic one-liners like"only women have emotions son, they come from their ovaries".

ALMOST EVERYTHING IS SEXUAL.  YOU HAVE TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES TO GET TO IT .

SO THIS MEANS YOU MUST HAVE A PRETTY PERVERTED MIND YOURSELF -- OR YOU WILL WONDER WTF?!


It showcases "in your face , lump it if you dont like it" domestic violence, the socioeconomic divide, racial inequality and literally thumbs its figurative nose at the state of American politics and the economy.

This satirical series operates on a single guiding principle: Nothing is off-limits, from necrophilia to cocaine and from mindless murder to eating excrement. The jaw dropping morbid jokes are pushed way too far, breaking every single rule of social decency.. This is why young children should NOT see this , as it gets absorbed into their subconscious.


Let me look at the positives. American Dad continues to include awesome music every week.. The show's humor comes from the juxtaposition of Stan's conservative nature against his family's seemingly liberal needs and opinions.  Everything you could conceive about the USA's current state of fear mongering and distrust is put beneath a microscope and parodied mercilessly .  

The episodes usually center on various challenges or mishaps befalling the “mentally poles apart”  family members and their typically shoddy and ill-fated efforts to overcome them. Hence there is something for the intellectuals too , especially the inner workings of a family of vastly different personalities.

When Stan enters an essay contest to have his personal hero, President Bush, come over for dinner, he is overcome with joy when the President arrives at his doorstep. However, not everyone in the Smith family shares Stan's excitement. 


Hayley tries to drill President Bush on the Iraq war, and Steve and Roger attempt to convince him that they've found Osama Bin Laden, Bush gets roaring drunk. Stan tries to save the President from public humiliation, while Hayley revels in his fall from glory.  

George W. Bush is in his own little fantasy world  and rambles “ Oh, fun! I love Mexicans! Some say they're essential to our economy. Others say they're a drain on our resources. All I know is, burritos are delicious!” 


Like coffee or beer this serial has to grow on you.

                                                                Grace and peace!

    Can Cow Gobar Gas be filled in cylinder and used in cooking and in transportation purpose. I think if we can do we can save money on LPG cylinders.It will be future alternative for CNG and LPG.

    1. hi nelson,

      it is no big deal.

      biogas comprises of 64% methane, 35% carbon dioxide, rest is hydrogen sulfide and water vapour.

      CO2 and H2S can be removed by water scrubber tower as it is heavier than Methane.

      enriched biogas is made moisture free by passing it through water vapor removing filters, after which it is compressed up to 220 bar pressure using a ordinary 3 stage gas compressor.

      compressed gas is stored in usual steel cylinders, as used for CNG.

      india has 301 million cows-- most of which are unproductive.

      they just eat and shit.

  2. Hi Sir, please dont publish my comment because i only wanted to talk to you. Its a good thing you have enabled comment moderation.

    http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20130101/sunnyside/alleged-subway-pusher-erika-menendez-moved-psychiatric-ward

    The jews are murdering hindu people, and taking the murderers into Psych ward claiming insanity.

    They used the keywords like "alleged" to hide the truth, power of confusion.

    There have been more murders, and it has been hard for me to keep account because my blog has been hacked many times.

    My blog is hacked and deleted. I barely wrote 53 posts, and i have been hacked 50 times, lost count.

    I know we are in deep trouble,

    but I know the true reality, this world is brahm, a lie, we are living in disillusion, one soul playing a game with each other.

    Brahma's Chackravyuh, labyrinth. which is the power zealots are using to entrap us all.

    American television nothing more than Jewish purification of everyone mind.

    Stinefield Episode that covers "Yada Yada Yada" making it sound like nonsense.

    It is an indirect attack at us, just like the indirect sexual connotation you are talking about.

    It makes me sick.

    1. hi dhruv,

      yes--

      if a muslim or black pushes someone on the railway track in USA, it becomes terrorism.

      if a white christain or a jew pushes, the pusher is MENTALLY DERANGED and is given protection from law.

      if a white christian pushes a jew , he will of course be punished by ADL and AIPAC.

      when i came to know that south park was voted in 2011, as one in the 25 Greatest Animated TV Series poll by Entertainment Weekly-- i wanted to see it.

      my 16 year old son told me , it is NOT worth my time.

    1. hi swadeshi,

      facebook is a mass control tool for the new world order.

      you are conned into offering all your private information freely -- to big brother.

      no one pays -- but how much does it cost to run may be more than 33000 servers.

      what is the catch?

      people who have too many friends have no firrends at all -- they are all fair weather friends , who wont care for you when you are down.

      in how many of your facebook friends houses can you stay for two weeks without spending on them , without getting the cold treatment?

    In Interstellar when Cooper was communicating with his daughter Murphy, he mentioned the connection as 'love' but is there a better word to describe that connection - is it conscience, emotional connect - is there any Sanskrit word for it.

    hi sr,

    i just imagined-if this question was put to RAJEEV MASAND the guy on AIB bakchod -- what he would SQUEAK.

    and imagining how this man would DIVE OFF THE DEEP END , squeaking pathetic nonsense all the while, i had the heartiest laugh since several days..

    the movie INTERSTELLAR has NOT been understood by anyone on this planet ( including the maker ) for you need to know Vedanta and Quantum physics to comment on the movie as a whole.

    THIS MOVIE HAS AN EVIL AGENDA.-- IT TRIES TO PROVE THAT THERE IS NO CREATOR GOD -- BUT FOR SOME "THEY " TYPE BENEVOLENT ENTITY.

    Thorne’s old friend Stephen Hawking, has been warning that the long-term survival of our species depends on us developing interstellar travel.

    So we must grow GM crops, we must stop burning coal , we must stop cremations --for in this movie there was only GM Corn as food .

    MAD MAN Stephen Hawkin's loaded astro physics has placed this movie in the realm of STUPID -- and has NO scientific base -- where they try to integrate newton's classical physics along with Einsteins theories- by bleeding gravity through dimensions.

    While the Endurance team is away, Prof Brand will continue to work on an advanced equation that, if solved, will allow humans to harness fifth-dimensional physics – specifically gravity.

    The equations on the black board are textbook general relativity equations-- pathetic !

    Both Newton and Einstein have stolen everything from India.

    Interstellar uses Einsteins RELATIVITY, GRAVITY LENSING, TIME DILATION, SPACE TIME CURVATURE , SINGULARITY , SPIRAL YUGA TIME , WORM HOLE PROVIDED BY OM, BUTTERFLY EFFECT BY SOLITON WAVE OF COCONUT SMASH , BLACK HOLE OF KALI, VARAHA AVATAR SAVING GENETIC BLUEPRINT CODE BEFORE PRALAYA , AAKASHIK RECORDS -- all lifted from Vedanta.

    Quantum Physics is embedded in Hinduism.

    The 10-year-old daughter, Murphy believes their house is haunted by a ghost that is trying to communicate with her by dropping books off a shelf in her room. THEY are sending an unknown form of intelligence sending them coded messages by means of gravitational anomaly altering the dust on the floor in a binary pattern .

    In Hinduism we read of SIGNS from our dead ancestors when we do REM sleep. That is why we do Pitr Paksha.

    Equipped with conscious robot ( only conscious computer can tell jokes and understand subtle humor ) TARS's data on the singularity, Cooper communicates Murph across the dimensional barrier from inside a fifth dimension tesseract through gravitational waves ( bleeding Newtons asshole ) , making him the "ghost" from her childhood ( bleeding Einsteins asshole ) .

    With this information, Murph is able to complete Brand's equation, allowing Earth's population to be evacuated el pronto—OOPS ! I must NOT get so cynical !.

    Now how does Cooper Praaji reach this Tesseract or Phesseract or whatever ? Pray? Prithee ?—


    CONTINUED TO 2-

    1. CONTINUED FROM 1-

      -- a place beyond the event horizon of a black hole, where our man can view time as though it were a spatial dimension ( sic !).

      The conscious robot goes down a black hole to send back HAJAAAR “quantum data”

      They encounter a planet near a black hole, and decide to go around it to avoid the “time shift zone” --AIYOO AIYOO !

      NASA has been driven ‘underground’ as a secret organization --it also doubles up as a future humankind’s space-traveling ark. -- first generation of embryos are already with them – each subsequent generation helping to raise a new set of embryos (as well as reproduce naturally) PLAN A , if you pleaJJe..

      Translating that coded data gives Murph all the information she needs to drastically advance humanity’s understanding of space and time – as well as complete Plan A – CHOONA LAGAAKE !.

      But hey, they have PLAN B too. So that is why Cooper Praji sacrifices himself to reduce weight on the Endurance, thus ensuring Amelia can make it to Edmonds’ planet and kick ze goal of Plan B .

      But hey, THEY help cooper -- instead of dying alone in space, Cooper is pulled inside The Tesseract - the gravitational singularity that is maintaining the wormhole – created by the aforementioned THEY .

      Hey, I am beginning to fall in LOBE nay love with THEY. Where is my CHARKHA .

      INTERSTELLAR MEIN CHARKHA GHUMAAAKE PLAN B SAPHAL HUA-- SACHCHI MEIN !

      Kosher NASA scientists spAke that THEY ” are an advanced extraterrestrial race who have unlocked the mysteries of dimensional manipulation - and, for some NOT SO FAALTHU reason, decided to aid mankind in escaping our doomed planet. GOD BILKUL HAI HI NAHI !

      THEY are loathe to communicate directly with us humans – coz they are fifth-dimensional, having transcended our three-dimensional ways of understanding the universe.

      However THEY acquiesce to lay out a series of rudimentary library dust ripples – nay - breadcrumbs (binary messages) and advanced technology ( down the rabbit-nay- the wormhole) for humans to follow – in order to save ourselves from annihilation.

      THEY will sambhavami Yuge Yuge ( TEE HEE !)

      Cooper and Murph are saviors of humanity,chosen by THEY - the fifth-dimensional humans – who can observe past, present, and future of AAKASHA – custom-build The Tesseract for Cooper, so that he can communicate with his daughter in the past and relay the data that funny TARS (the quadrilateral shaped robot) had collected inside the singularity.

      SEARCH FOR SRI YANTRA BINDU IN SINGULARITY TOO --LANGOT PHAADKE- NAY—RUMAAAL JHODKE )

      Of HAJAAAAR importance is --the fifth-dimensional communication through gravity (made visible by three-dimensional objects back on Earth) enables Cooper to gently PEEPTA BHARPOORN , manipulate the hands on Murph’s watch – transferring the data that funny TARS acquired with morse coded watch ticks.

      Gravity bleeds via Newton’s asshole through to other dimensions in time and space to Einsteins asshole , allowing Cooper to spell out a message (“S-T-A-Y”) by pushing them mangy books off of Murph’s shelf – or communicate map coordinates to the past version of himself by spreading them dust across the floor (in binary language).

      If only this IDIOT knew the meaning of consciousness field.

      So so so—thief Newton’s Laws, what we perceive as a finite calculation could actually have infinite implications and fit into the plans of thief Einstein –kosher vineger mein daaalke.

      THEY kaun hai bhaiiya ? Aliens hai kya ? AKKAL KA DUSHMA YUVRAAJ ko poochna padenga ! Escape velocity bi pooch lenge !

      Hum honge kaamyaab !

    What were the reasons / compulsions of PMO to change Dr. Harshvardhan as Health Minister of India. As he is a doctor himself. Do JP Nadda qualifies the same because every two weak in a month there is pulse polio day.
