Comparison between the TV version and the DVD version, the latter represented by the US DVD set "Season 16"
- 3 different deviations
- difference: 1 sec
Same procedure as every year: The next DVD set of Family Guy available since December 2018 in the USA contains all episodes of Season 16. Here, too, the episodes are in an extended or simply uncensored version compared to the original TV broadcasts. A sticker on the plastic foil reveals this again. On the DVD set itself there are no further hints.
Episode 10 ("Boy (Dog) meets Girl (Dog)") was slightly censored towards the end for TV broadcasting. Brian fell in love again, this time it's a dog and as the winner of a dog show he should get the honour to have sex with her. Beside a pure shortening, when the rival starts to do so, also the sex act, which is represented by zooms on the watching Brian and sounds from the off, was toned down a bit.
As always, care must be taken with the German release with the same name "Staffel 16", which has been available since August 2018 - in the box-set are actually only the episodes from Season 14.
Remark: Episode 9 ("Don't be a Dickens at Christmas") has only a somewhat unusual beep tone audio censorship in the 1st minute, when Peter comments "Up yours, teach!" towards the teacher. Therefore, a separate cut-report has been omitted here.
On DVD the "Boxer" has a moment longer sexual intercourse with Ellie.
A censored, striking change at the end of the scene, which is difficult to reproduce with screenshots. The off-screen sexual intercourse between the dogs is at least a bit more obvious hinted. To the identical off-comment "Hey, less talk" by Quagmire you only hear a small movement sound on DVD and Brian is approached again / a bit faster.
No time difference
Here again another sound and zooming in to Brian.
