Excellent review! I caught most (all?) of the episodes first run, I hated the way Fox treated it. It was so hard to track down, yet it was one of the most entertaining and imaginative shows on the air. You really didn't know what they would do next. I have the first Volume and will be picking this up in a day or 2.

Adam, what did you use to capture screenshots? I just played the first episode on my computer and the video quality wasn't that great. So I compared the video to some of your screenshots and your screenshots looked far better than the video itself. I use PowerDVD. Should I use the THX optimizer to calibrate my computer monitor?

I use Power DVD as well. And the DVD looks really good on my Denon 2900 to Sony Wega 40 incher as well as both computers. Not sure what your issue might be. Anyone?

probably might be a referenceto some very severe combing and jaggies on some dvd players talked about when season 1 and 2 came out. i see it and have to change the settings on my rp-91 to video to eliminate the combing.

This is the final DVD release? I know family guy was on for very shortly(due to horrible scheduling), but didn't know for how many seasons. Thanks.

Yes, this set contains the entire 3rd (and final) season and the unaired episode (produced for season 2, I believe). Between volume 1 and this volume 2, all 50 episodes (49 aired, 1 unaired) of Family Guy are now available on DVD in R1. I've been waiting for this day to come for a long time. Now if only I receive my set from Amazon soon, I'll be all set. Posted Image

But some of the episodes on the volume 1 set had scenes edited out of them.

The JFK Pez dispenser gag was cut from the first season episode 'A Hero Sits Next Door' on the R1, but remains intact on the R2 version. There was also an audio substitution for another first season ep, but I can't remember which one.

There is another thread with more details about the edits. I'm sure you can find it using search.

[quote] BTW, does anyone know if the season 3 episodes are intact? [quote]

Jeff, from what I remember, I believe these are unedited versions of the episodes for Season 3.

I also just recently began seeing Family Guy and also cannot believe how hysterical this show is...HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED IT?!!! For instance, the episode 'Da Boom' from Season 2:
Peter comes out of the basement in a radiation suit. I love Chris's reaction: Chris: Oh no! It's the Government! Run ET! Run! And E.T runs by screaming. I think it's hysterical because I simply NEVER SAW COMING!!!
