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 twelfth episode of this box, 9x15 ("Brothers & Sisters"), is only marginally longer but each alterations has been made for censorship reasons this time. One of the cutaways is completely alternate (actually a bummer because the one in the TV Version was pretty nice, too). Furthermore, there are three audio track alterations. Quite unusually, the words have been replaced by other ones this time. Usually, they just get beeped.
Altered audio track
03:57-03:58

Lois yells at Meg without being censored: "Look who the fuck's talking."

Now sth. very unusual. Only in the DVD Version, the "local nobleman" mentions a flaccid penis.

DVD: "I must bless this coupling with my flaccid English penis."

Alternate cutaway about Alaska.


TV Version

Lois: "And the summers are so short."
Then a shot of three teens walking at the beach. They're on their way to the water, the sun is shining brightly. Before reaching the water, the summer ends and it gets pretty cold all of a sudden. Then they start talking:
- "Yay.
- "Summer's here."
- "Awesome."
- "Best summer ever."
- "Let's stay friends."
- "I lost my virginity."
- "Yeah, right. To who?"
- "You don't know her. I met her at camp."


DVD Version

Lois' alternate comment: "And what about the high percentage of Eskimo child molestors?"
A shot of a child-molesting Eskimo follows: "Give me a kiss!"
Child: "I don't want to."
Eskimo: "Give me a kiss or I'll hurt your parents!"
The child gives up and the Eskimo rubs his nose: "Yeah, yeah, mean it!"
