Background


From the series Family Guy, fans are already used to extensions and uncensored sequences on the DVD box sets since the release of the 4th season. With Seht MacFarlane's other baby - American Dad - they do a similar thing. However, not too many episodes per DVD box are different in comparison to their TV version; probably also because the series isn't as rude as the one starring the Griffins. As a result, there's not too much that needs to be censored.

Similar to Family Guy, the release policy for American Dad is equally confusing. Instead of an entire box set for one season, the releases are divided in volumes (unlike Family Guy the volumes are identical in each country). The first season for example consists of 23 episodes, while the "volume 1" set only includes the first 13 episodes; thus, the following volumes often include episodes of 2 different seasons.


Vol. 1 and 2 didn't include episodes that were different to TV versions except for one: the episode Tears of a Clooney (1x23) on Vol. 2 has a censored and an uncensored soundtrack. Since this censorship only involves beeping out curse words, we decided not to release a report for this episode.

Additionally, we took a closer look at Vol. 2's episode Finances with Wolves, since the official rating entry listed that the episode was about 2 minutes longer than an average episode. However, it is highly possible, that the entry is simply faulty, since the episode actually has an average runtime and does not at all differ from the TV version - neither on the German, nor on the US DVD.



Volume 5


"Volume 5" contains the episodes 7-20 of season 4. There are 9 altered episodes in total on this box, although 5 of them only have a uncensored audio track and are otherwise identical wiht the TV version. As already mentioned, comparisons were only created for episodes with more than just beeped out words.

Episodes with extended or uncensored footage:
- 4x08: Chimdale
- 4x09: Stan Time
- 4x15: Wife Insurance
- 4x17: Every Which Way But Lose
- 4x19: Daddy Queerest
- 4x20: Stan's Night Out

Episodes with additional audio without beeping
- 4x07: Phantom of the Telethon=> 17th minute: "Masturbate"
- 4x10: Family Affair=> 14th minute: "Asshole"
- 4x12: Roy Rogers McFreely=> 12th minute: "fuck / shit"

For these episodes you can choose to watch the "Original Televised Episode" by selecting it in the bonus menu. If you don't do that you will always see the uncensored DVD version; the UK box set only includes the DVD versions, the TV versions can't be chosen.



About this Episode


Wife Insurance (4x15) features two of the common beeps over naughty words and also two shots in which a blur effect was applied. The genitals obviously were too distinctly shaped for TV.
