Belly-laugh up to the bar, folks and satisfy your thirst for hilarity with the all-new collection of uncensored American Dad! episodes from the spirited minds of Mike Barker, Matt Weitzman and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. Loaded with celebrity guest voices, including Mariah Carey, Terry Crews, Mark Cuban, Zooey Deschanel, Danny Glover and Olivia Wilde, This volumes intoxicating highlights are.

STEVE AND SNOT’S TEST-TUBULAR ADVENTURE:  After failing to get dates for the high school prom, Steve and Snot try using the CIA’s cloning machine to make dates, but the machine produces two fast-growing newborn babies, forcing the boys to father them in time for the prom. Meanwhile, Stan takes home the CIA’s cloned pet dodo with disastrous consequences.

POLTERGASM: In a spoof of the movie Poltergeist, the Smith home is haunted by Francine’s unsatisfied sexual drive every time she is left having to fake it, so it is up to Roger – as medium Ruby Zeldastein – to eliminate the ghost. Meanwhile, Hayley dates a young, Hispanic man named Mauricio, and Klaus goes to Atlantic City for a self-help seminar, but ends up breaking his back and forced to watch the hotel guide channel in his room.

CROTCHWALKERS:Just to show Steve she is still a “cool” mom, Francine teaches him various shoplifting techniques at the local mall “The Gash”. However, their efforts to pull off the ultimate heist result in Steve getting captured and sent to a Venezuelan sweatshop. Meanwhile, Roger, Hayley and Klaus become Langley Falls’ first Russian balalaika trio and Stan injures his groin and must use a whiteboard to communicate.

FAKING BAD: In this parody of Breaking Bad, Hayley tries to fit in with her old high school friends and discovers Steve’s talent for creating fake IDs that can easily be passed for real ones. Seeing this as a business opportunity, Hayley builds out Steve’s operation, but find themselves up against another fake ID kingpin in Langley Falls: Kevin Ramage (another of Roger’s disguises).

MINSTREL KRAMPUS: A notorious Christmas demon known as Minstrel Krampus kidnaps a bratty Steve, so Stan and Roger must travel to the North Pole to save him with the help of Stan’s estranged father. Meanwhile, Hayley takes a job at the airport to get her family Christmas presents.

VISION: IMPOSSIBLE:  A car accident gives Roger the power to foresee the future, causing the Smiths to pester him with questions of what will happen.

FAMILYLAND: At Francine’s insistence, the Smiths go on vacation at a Disneyland-esque theme park called Familyland. Unfortunately, the visit turns disastrous when Roger, Hayley, Stan and Steve all separate to go to different regions of the park. Francine, disappointed in how the park broke up her family, complains in front of a statue of the park’s founder Roy Family. As Francine walks off with Klaus, the statue begins to cry and eventually crack revealing the original Roy Family inside. Roy, angry at how his park has failed to be a good influence over families decides to shut down the park and lock in all visitors. After one week, each member of the Smith family carves out their own personal “kingdom” out of the park while Francine struggles to find a way to end the chaos.

COCK OF THE SLEEPWALK: After Stan completes his 100th kill, he accidentally releases a benevolent persona of himself while sleeping, and this new incarnation goes on a spree of doing good deeds that the real Stan would never undertake.

Image result for american dad introducing the naughty stewardessesINTRODUCING THE NAUGHTY STEWARDESSES: In a parody of Face/Off, Roger switches faces with Steve to help him win over the hot girl at school, but soon decides he wants her for himself – until the girl reveals that she is pregnant with her jock ex-boyfriend’s baby. Meanwhile, in a parody of Charlie’s Angels, Stan and Francine’s vacation to Sacramento gets sidetracked when they befriend a quartet of sexy stewardesses and go undercover to help them thwart Mark Cuban’s plan to blow up the sun.

I AIN’T NO HOLODECK BOY: Against Francine’s wishes, Stan takes Steve and his friends into the woods for some outdoor playtime, where they wind up on the CIA’s holodeck. Meanwhile, Hayley claims she is Roger’s queen after purchasing his home star on an international star registry.

STAN GOES ON THE PILL: Unable to listen to Francine’s constant chatting, Stan takes an experimental estrogen pill which allows him to be able to listen to women without zoning out. Things get complicated, however, when Stan’s dosage turns him into a woman and Avery Bullock begins making romantic advances towards the now-female Stan. Meanwhile, Roger and Klaus start their own business selling the suits Stan wore as a male, which doesn’t go according to plan.

HONEY, I’M HOMELAND: Stan infiltrates an Occupy Wall Street protest and ends up being kidnapped and brainwashed. Meanwhile, Roger buys thousands of candles and is unable to sell them, resulting in him and Steve getting carried away while giving each other massages in the attic in an attempt to use them all up.

RUBBERNECKERS: CIA budget cuts leave Stan out in the cold, and since his company work record is classified, his only employment opportunity is at a local grocery store that is managed by Steve. Meanwhile, Roger and an annoying coffee-shop musician engage in a wager that leads Roger into a Faustian pact with an infomercial guitar instructor.

THE LONGEST DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP: is still heartbroken and trying to get over Jeff’s abduction, and meets a millionaire named Matt, who helps her deal with the tragedy. However, Steve and Snot discover that Jeff is alive and, along with the ghost of Sinbad, is trying to make his way back to her. Ultimately, Jeff learns that by the time he can make it back to Earth, Haley will be sixty and would have spent her entire life waiting for him. He goes back in time through the wormhole that he used to enter into Earth, and tells Hayley that he isn’t sure if he can make it back to Earth after all, and that he wants her to move on. She accepts, saying she will never forget him, and goes to begin life with Matt, only for him to be killed by Roger upon finding out he is an alien.

This has to be one of the best adult cartoons ever created. A great season fo episodes that keeps you wanting more… role on volume 11.

Here’s some catch-up about our two broke girls, in case you are coming to this for the first time: Max Black is a blue collar girl who had a rough poverty-stricken childhood with an absentee drug addict mother. Caroline Wesbox Channing is a formerly rich high society girl and Wharton graduate who lost all of her money when her father was arrested and thrown in prison for a Ponzi scheme.Highlights of the Season 5 are
5.1) And The Wrecking Ball

A developer plans to demolish the diner, Max’s Homemade Cupcakes, and all the other businesses on the block to make way for an IMAX theater, leading to a very brief Caroline-Han friendship and a search for historical evidence that will allow everything to remain standing. Meanwhile, believing she is an expectant mother, Sophie takes many pregnancy tests.

 

5.3) And The Maybe Baby

Caroline is thrown for a series of loops when she encounters her old boyfriend “Candy” Andy, from being in denial about still having feelings for him, to being stunned to learn that he’s getting married, to being horrified when she somehow agrees to make the cake at their wedding. Max finds most of this hilarious, but even she is both moved and shocked by the two later relevations. Elsewhere, Sophie has decided to use a life-like robot baby to prepare for her inevitable pregnancy.

5.4) And The Inside Out Situation

When Caroline and Max are putting together an order for an LGBT client named “I”, a misunderstanding involving the packaging for the cupcakes and the out of context comment “we cannot sell these cupcakes to you” leads to an angry community boycott against the allegedly bigoted cupcake shop. This also begins to ruin the diner’s business, and Han’s attempt to help doesn’t work once the protesters realize he’s straight. A friendly guy places a huge cupcake order for his organization and invites Caroline and Max to come to a convention, only for the girls to realize in horror that the meeting is for an anti-gay “family values” group. They then figure out a way to let everyone know what they really stand for.

5.5) And The Escape Room

Caroline learns that Max has been overcharging her $25 on her share of the rent every month. Han has the entire diner staff go to an escape room as a team building exercise.

 Image result for 2 broke girls and the high holidays
Max and Caroline are hosting their first cupcake party. It’s horrible. They are dressed in cupcake costumes, and kids are throwing food everywhere.Andy comes to see Caroline and asks her if there is a problem with their store. The landlord told him they hadn’t paid rent. He asks if they need help, but Caroline lies about it. Max sneaks off to do a “cupcake run,” which has been bringing in extra money. Caroline follows her, trailing her to a door. She grabs her, but she turns around and it is actually a man with nasty long hair. Max comes up behind her. Max explains that her dealer calls her and Max sells cupcakes to the stoners. They drop them off and grab the hundred bucks. Caroline is reassured that they’re not doing anything illegal. Suddenly the SWAT team rushes past them, and busts down the long-haired man’s door. They haul him away while “Carol” screams at him that she told him not to get involved in drugs. Caroline is over the cupcake-to-stoners idea immediately. They sell a box of cupcakes to a woman whose cat died, and find out their other party cancelled. They begin to worry about paying rent.
Max says she’ll just do more cupcake runs, but Caroline is against it. She goes to borrow the money from Andy but changes her mind. They see the landlord outside, and decide to hit the lights and hide. Everyone crawls to the kitchen. They open the window to sneak outside. Caroline notes it’s a little high, but they jump out anyway just as the landlord comes in. He finds Han standing awkwardly in the kitchen. At home Caroline looks for loose change, but finds Max’s huge bag of pot that was given as her Christmas gift. She goes to put it on the shelf but it falls into the pot of melted butter. Max wonders if it’s a sign they should sell drugs. Max bakes the cupcakes anyway, and pressures Caroline into eating one. She thinks it’s amazing and that they should sell them, but freaks out when someone knocks on the door. It’s just Sophie. She recognizes the smell and wants to partake. They bring the cupcakes to a friend, and Caroline’s stoned personality comes out—she’s incredibly morbid and freaks everyone out. They decide to get food into her and she’ll be fine, their friend is coming with pizza. The friend shows up and turns out to be Andy. When she sees Andy, Caroline runs away through the window. The next day Max fills Caroline in on what she did, including rolling around in syrup screaming “The Mayans were right!” Andy tries to give her a check but she again turns it down. Earl, Han and Oleg come into the shop. They tell them Caroline called and told them all they couldn’t pay their rent, and everyone chipped in. Caroline says she can’t take it, but Han tells them they have to-they’re family. Max gives them some leftover “special” cupcakes as a thank you.
A great episode seeing Caroline High and telling people they are all going t odie. The ending is such a sweeting ending and funny with Max giving the men Weed cupcakes, with Han not having a clue what’s really in them.
AND A LOAN FOR CHRISTMAS

The titular characters in 2 Broke Girls are played by Kat Dennings and newcomer Beth Behrs (a genuine find), who portray waitresses in a down-and-dumpy diner in Williamsburg, a suburb of New York. Their boss is an obsequious, pint-sized Korean immigrant (Matthew Moy), the cook an over-sexed sleazeball (Jonathan Kite), the cashier a wise and hep older black dude (Garrett Morris). Although the “Alice for the Twitter Generation” setup provides the bulk of the show’s humor, there are a few sub-plots early on involving the Dennings character baby sitting for a ditsy socialite (the dryly hilarious Brooke Lyons) and carrying on a hot-and-cold relationship with a street artist (Nick Zano). Halfway through the season, another regular is introduced in the form of a bawdy Polish-American cleaning business proprietress who shares a place in the girls’ apartment building, done with a detached hilarity by Jennifer Coolidge.

Dennings’ character, Max, is the smart-mouthed, tough-living young woman who takes under her wing the down-and-out ex-heiress Caroline (Behrs) who lost everything when her father was caught swindling billions of dollars from investors. They become roommates, then co-workers and then partners in a struggling cupcake business. It might all sound familiar, but the writers and directors pump so much heart and soul into the characters and situations they make me actually care whether Martha Stewart loves their cupcakes (which, in the hysterical first-season finale, she did). It is to the writers’ credit that they have Max and Caroline become more than shallow stereotypes, while Dennings and Behrs make the women they play believable as best friends, despite their differing backgrounds.possible laugh. It was a fascinating experience seeing how differently a scene played with a slight inflection here or a different word there. All that hard work comes out in the episodes on these DVDs (some of the scenes cut from the final episode versions are included as welcomed extras).

When we last saw lead besties Max Black and Caroline Channing, they were over the moon about their unorthodox meeting with style maven Martha Stewart – who not only sampled one of their premium cupcakes (the Beer-Batter Maple-Bacon Spring-Break cupcake), but also said she liked it and admired them. What more sustenance would two struggling waitresses-turned-entrepreneurs need? A lot, it turns out, as season two of 2 Broke Girls gives us a taste of success &  failure.

Whereas season one of the hit CBS show was all about meeting cute, sharing dreams, and attempting to live down the fact that one of the fathers bilked investors out of millions of dollars, the second season is more about character and relationships: Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) step closer and closer to their ever-elusive dream of a cupcake store; while diner-cook Oleg (Jonathan Kite) and entrepreneur Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge) begin sharing more than just sex. It is, like life, filled with ups and downs, steps forward and many more steps backward, never once letting the characters lose sight of their final destination. Max is overjoyed when they find the perfect space to open their cupcake store, insisting that it has a certain cache seeing how it was the site of a mass murder (complete with blood still on the walls). Where one sees disaster, Max sees opportunity: “If we go with red, it’s half painted.” This devil-may-care attitude balances nicely with Caroline’s Wharton-School pedigree of sense and sensibility, preventing either from going too far off the deep end. They establish such a mutual ground, in fact, that they both willingly don giant cupcake suits in an attempt to drum up business.

Elsewhere in Williamsburg, the relationship between Oleg and Sophie begins to deepen. Where it was once an excuse for crude comments about orgasms, it has developed into a touching pairing between two oddballs who are perfectly matched.  Sophie, the owner of a house-cleaning service who has a heart of gold, continues in her role of fairy godmother to the two girls. In season one, she made sure they had killer outfits to wear to the gala event where they hoped to meet Ms. Stewart. Here, she gives them the seed money to rent their prime space, stock up and begin selling cupcakes. She is a silent partner; but one who eats a lot of the profits – literally.

Although much of the season takes place in settings outside the Williamsburg Diner, there is still plenty going on there. Put-upon diner-owner Han (Matthew Moy) has become a little more feisty, giving to the girls as good as he gets from them – and standing up to a robber who mistakenly thinks there are quick profits to be made. Stalwart Garrett Morris, as cashier Earl, continues to be the brightest star in the Williamsburg firmament, delivering caustic barbs and witty asides like the seasoned pro he is. Season two is filled with lots of characters who stop by for an episode or three, including Steven Weber as the notorious swindler who is father to Caroline, Ryan Hansen as the boyish proprietor of the candy shop across from the cupcake store who starts to fall for a certain Wharton graduate, and rapper 2 Chains appearing as himself in a surprisingly appealing episode.

The end of the second season provided the perfect set up for season three: while cleaning out the diner, they stumble onto a secret back room that has (surprise!) a set of doors that open onto the sidewalk. Can they create a walk-up cupcake business and make a success of it?.

The third season  continues to follow the two girls with their attempt to run their cupcake business, which has been “off and on” in a way that any sitcom relationship would be. This season, the girls have found the secret back room of the diner (which was the focus of the last episode of the second season) and have opened for business. “And the Soft Opening” and “And the Cronuts” are highlights, as the two find themselves with crowds after a British rock star croaks in front of the shop and the girls make an attempt to capitalize on the Cronut craze.


However, around the halfway point of the season, Max and Caroline head to pastry school and things get even more intresting. Max starts to have feelings for Deke (Eric Andre), while Caroline falls for a head baker (Gilles Marini), who has a secret. Meanwhile, Mary Lynn Rajskub  is thrown into the mix playing an oddball working at the front desk. Rajskub is extremely funny.

Alot of these threads conlude towards the end of the season. The last episode of the season, which sees Max heading back to her old high school to get her diploma, is a great example of the series – it’s genuinely funny, sweet and really shows the chemistry well between the two leads.

In Season Four Kim Kardashian pays the cupcake shop a visit, Caroline starts using an abandoned bike to make deliveries, but Max is unable to do her share because she cannot ride a bicycle, Max and Caroline rent their apartment via Airbnb to some models in town for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the girls find out two rich high school girls are selling knock-offs of their cupcake T-shirts.

Other Highlights are –

And the Zero Tolerance

When Caroline notices the girls’ bank balance is less than zero, she and Max desperately look for ways to make enough money for the payments on their T-shirt loan. Soon after, John (“Big Mary”) from Max’s pastry school comes by to say he’s working as a pastry chef at “The High”, a new upscale restaurant in Manhattan. He encourages Max to apply for the other pastry chef position that needs to be filled, and Caroline tags along to apply for a waitress job.

And the High Hook-Up

Joedth finds a hot, young Irish man named Nashit (Austin Falk) on a bench outside The High, and hires him, asking Caroline to train him as a waiter. Max is smitten and vows to get Nashit into bed, but doing so would violate Joedth’s strict “no hook ups among employees” policy. After the two are caught, Han hires Nashit to work as a dishwasher at the diner.

And the Grate Expectations

At Oleg’s bachelor party, Han inadvertently discloses a secret that leads Sophie to cancel the wedding. The girls and Big Mary open up a new branch of The High that, much to their dismay, is located in an airport.

And the Disappointing Unit

Sophie and Oleg get married, despite some challenges on their wedding day. Disappointing sales at the airport branch of The High put the girls’ future there in doubt. The Girls then end up going to Paris using the tickets they got to get into the airport to kidnap Nash. The episode ends with Max and Caroline drinking champagne from their cabin crew friends.

Another great season, with some great laughs, the show gets better and better every season and am looking forward to season 5.
