What's Worth Watching: American Dad! Goes Gaslighting

American Dad

American Dad!, "American Fung" (Monday, May 25, 9/8c, TBS)

One of the standard sitcom tropes is the Forgetful Husband. He never remembers milk at the store, or to pick up the kids, or, when the writers need to up the stakes, his wedding anniversary. This is American Dad!, though, so when Stan forgets his and Francine's anniversary, he gaslights her into an insane asylum in order to prove he did no such thing.
