American Dad!: Volume 8 is packed with 18 new episodes from Season 7 created by the disturbed comic minds of Mike Barker, Matt Weitzman and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. More animated outrageousness ensues as the patriotic extreme right wing Republican CIA agent Stan Smith and his wonderfully dysfunctional family entwine themselves in more insane adventures. In Volume 8, a stressed Stan looking for relaxation ends up with a killer hot tub. Steve accidentally puts on Hayley’s panties and his luck changes for the better. Hayley and Jeff adopt a child who turns out to be evil and may be an excommunicated Stan’s ticket to get back in the church’s good graces. Roger heads to Miami for vacation and meets Latin pop singer Ricky Martin. Feeling guilty that he has never been there for Steve, Stan uses the CIA’s avatar system to pose as a hot, blond teenage girl -- whom Steve plans to get intimate with. When Roger is called away to Iraq (by a letter forged by Klaus), all of the family’s horrible secrets come to light. Celebrity guest voices include Sarah Michelle Gellar, CeeLo Green, Alyson Hannigan, Patrick Stewart, Amy Sedaris and more.
Special features include deleted scenes, audio commentary on select episodes and “Stan’s Booty Dance” featurette.
