User Reviews

Quite Funny!
10 September 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The second episode in the American Dad series, "Threat Levels" is a pretty funny and rambunctious episode. It doesn't reach the level of brilliance of the first episode, but it still has some of that delightful, colorful language that symbolizes this series. There is some minor characterization here especially on the role of Steve.

This episode has Stan being mad that his wife is making more money than him as a real estate agent so he decides to use homeless people as wrestlers for a grand scheme.

Overall, this is a solid, funny episode and I laughed quite a few times. This show has extreme potential and I can't wait to see what future episodes bring. I rate this episode 9/10.
