      American Dad! is a satirical American cartoon series owned by Underdog Productions and Fuzzy Door Productions and produced in association with 20th Century Fox Television.

      In the episode "Merlot Down Dirty Shame," Steve is an avid lucid dreamer.

      At the same time, I also really enjoyed the storyline where Klaus and Haley tried to keep Steve believing that he was lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is one of those things that has lots of potential for laughs but never turns up in shows...

      and more

      i think a thread along these lines was already posted. but yeah i watched the episode thanks for the heads up. it was hilarious. It would have been cool if there was more focus on the lucid dreaming thing but it was still good

      God damn those international copyright issues! I'm so sick of seeing that when I try to watch an American video online. *Goes looking for alternative*

      EDIT: For any non-USA viewers!

      Also on the episode of Futurama if you watch it, the one where Leela gets stung by the bee and is in a coma also has a "lucid dream" kind of theme to it. Seriously some people make shows and movies without even knowing what lucids are and incorporate them in there.

      @MadWorld - Kinda, although it turns out to be a coma doesn't it?

      I watched this episode anyway (or at least skimmed through it). It was really weird to see something like this on American Dad. 0_o

      Just finished watching it. I'm always scared I'll get fooled into thinking waking life is a dream and do something stupid! I think lucid dreaming was presented really well there. It incorporated dreamsigns (the red ball) and the total freedom that comes when you notice one. I smell a spike in newbies...?

      Wow i just watched it and it kinda sucks that they made it look kinda nerdy. But now alot more people will google how to do this because it was on a show. Another bad thing is when he thinks its a dream and jumps out the window and impales the girl. That will give people bad opinions about LDing.

      I doubt you'll see a huge increase. Most of the people that watch American Dad probably won't respond hugely to lucid dreaming. Almost everyone I know can't be bothered trying it.

      Thanks for the non-U.S. link, J.D.! Hulu needs to get its head out of its ass and feed to all of North America at least!

      Steve not realizing he was awake was a bit much, but other than that, it was an overall funny ep Looks like the writers did some research

      Who knows, we might have some American Dad writers on the board already

      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      Last night's episode of Stargate Universe was about lucid dreaming as well.

      After all OBE and Astral Projection can be induced by Near death experience and/or going "under the knife" I had surgery on my arm as a kid and remember dreaming or some weird stuff. I felt like the surgery lasted literally 1 second.

      I just watched this episode, it was probably one of the greatest episode I've watched. Simply because it had lucid dreaming in it.

      EDIT: Yup! That was worth watching! So funny.

      Was that a lucid dreaming reference Clyde? If so, I didn't even catch it when I was watching.

      It was what the boy (dunno his name) said to the teacher when he thought he was lucid, and the teacher told him he was late. It's late in the episode.

      It would be awesome if LDing was on other shows. I can so see Kenny being a lucid dreamer, and killing all the people who kill him in his dreams. And, his obligatory death would be hilarious. "Oh my God, they killed... oh, wait, he just wakes up."
      Funny thing is, I've only seen about half an episode of south park.
      I'm back!

      Yeah, I'd love to see it on more shows. I'm guessing it's growing in popularity!
