Looks like FOX wants to fly high with the Family Guy releases in the UK. While the recently released US box "Vol. 9" at least contains the last episodes of S8 plus the first ones of S9 (available as S10 in the UK since May 2011! / the comparisons are already online), S11 (aka Vol. 10 in the US) is available since November 2011 in the UK. This DVD box contains the remaining episodes of S9. Unfortunately, this DVD release doesn't contain any audio commentaries like the previous releases did. It might be, but that's just an assumption of mine, that the commentaries haven't been recorded so far because the release of the US counterpart "Vol. 10" isn't yet in sight. The episodes themselves are completely uncensored, as usual.
The tenth episode of this box, 9x13 ("Trading Places"), contains a couple of added plot scenes. The only interestint new scene is the one with Chris and Meg on the bike which is well animated. Furthermore, the swear words are uncensored.
The TV Version contains a longer shot of Peter and the others cheering, the angle remains unchanged (no screens).
The DVD Version on the other hand continues with a closer angle and Mort also says something: "Oh, boy, I can't wait to win a free dirt bike."
The promoter keeps talking offscreen: "...and all you have to do is pay the sales tax."
His face darkens, then he leaves with the words "Who needs a stupid dirt bike...".
DVD Version 7.9 sec longer
The bold-marked part of Chris' comment is missing in the TV Version: "Come on, Meg. We can be like Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda in Easy Rider. Just get on!"
The TV Version continues with a transition to another animation of Meg and Chris on the bike, shot from a further distance. This is completely missing in the DVD Version. Furthermore, the following shot starts 1 sec earlier in the TV Version and it's a closer angle again.
The DVD Version contains a new scene with dialog on the bike instead.
Meg says: "So, is this it? This doesn't seem very fun."
Chris: "This is the best part, Meg. Now we put on sunglasses and ride with the sun at our side, while we listen to a seemingly deep, but actually nonsensical song by The Byrds."
Some nice animations of them on the bike follow, accompanied by the mentioned song.
"There's revolution in the air. And also in the river. I'm not gonna cut my hair. The sky's up in the sky. And the rivers are the forests are the mountains are the sea. And I am you, but you are not me. And the visions of our minds are in the valleys which are valleys. And the oceans and a camel and my new socks and a book."
DVD Version 38.6 sec longer
In the TV Version, Chris is in Peter's office and writes sth. down on one of the files.
The DVD Version shows his co-worker, mumbling sth. to himself as usual. Chris closes the file and says: "Well, she sounds lovely, but I still wouldn't put my face down there."
Due to continuity reasons, the following 2 sec are different: until Chris gives the file to Angela, the file is still open in the TV Version but it's already closed in the DVD Version.
DVD Version 5.7 sec longer
Altered audio track
Stewie uncensored: "Give her a fucking chance, all right?"
Chris also says: "But some of these are old SAT tests."
Angela: "Yeah, my drifter boyfriend is going for his GED. I want you to be the tutor that finally gets through to him."
Then a shot of the mentioned boyfriend behind her. He says: "I don't trust no one."
Chris: "Well, that's okay, 'cause I trust you."
And it worked: "I wanna study now."
Altered audio track
Stewie swears uncensored in the dark: "I just wanna say, this family is fucking disintegrating."
