One of the things that helps me get through that unpleasantness of work is Fox's Animation Domination. It's a joyous 2 1/2 hours of primetime cartoon shenanigans. It starts off with American Dad!, followed by my all time favorite show The Simpsons. It then goes into Bob's Burger's then the Seth MacFarlane double whammy of Family Guy and the Cleveland Show.
Last week we saw American Dad! come out on top. Let's see who can win the last battle royale of this tv season.
American Dad! (Flirting With Disaster)
Show score - B+
The Simpsons (500 Keys)
Episode score - C-
Bob's Burger's (Lobsterfest)
Luckily for Bob a hurricane comes through and threatens to cancel the event. Bob stays open through the hurricane offering up free burgers and beer and declares that they should celebrate "Bobsterfest". After a hard night of partying he wakes up to find his restaurant has been trashed and his new friends have abandoned him because the weather clears and everyone heads to lobsterfest.
Tonight's episode wasn't quite as good as last week's but there is a funny part with the kids trying lobster for the first time and Jean having an allergic reaction to lobster.
Episode score - C+
Family Guy (Foreign Affairs)Last week's episode was a dud but fortunately we're treated to a pretty good episode this week. Lois goes to Paris with Bonnie for a vacation. After getting there she admits to Lois that she's only there to have an affair with another man. She ends up sleeping with a guy names Francois who is also in a wheelchair. He asks Bonnie to stay there with him. She considers until Lois tells Joe and he show up to get her to come back home. In the funniest part he shows his love by standing up for her. It turns out that Quagmire is just taped to the back of him though.
The second storyline was also good by having Peter home school the kids while Lois is away. Peter feels that he should pull the kids out of school after a flu outbreak. Of course Peter teaches them nonsense and there's a great part that is similar to the Conway Twitty cutaway's as Peter said that in 1985 "was the year of the gayest music video of all time". I think Peter was right....
Episode score - B
Cleveland Show (Hot Cocoa Bang Bang)Tonight in the second season finale, Cleveland creates his own comic book called "Waderman". He's so sure that everyone will the story of a hero who isn't afraid to go into shallow water that he decides to take the whole family to Comic-Con in San Diego. Nobody wants to go except for Cleveland Jr.
While at the show Junior because sour on the convention after the convention is filled with Twilight and crappy NBC sitcoms like Schwim-Team starring David Schwimmer. He then gets all the other geeks to get together and get rid of those terrible exhibits.
