    I was browsing Amazon.co.uk because I am interested in purchasing a region free dvd player for south park. To my surprise I stumbled upon the one and only Family Guy. You can check it out here. Could this possibly mean that fox is going to release it in the states any time soon????

    Yeah same here. Plus it's only 30 dollars US. Which for the first season of Family Guy is a steal. This is fox and seeing as how The Simpsons was only 30 dollars this doesnt surprise me. Incase anyone wants to know my current titles to justify a new multi-region dvd player.
    South Park
    Friends
    Return Of The Living Dead
    Family Guy
    Dilbert
    All those tv shows are season-by-season none of this best of crap

    I hope Fox release Family Guy soon over here, else I will be forced to buy a region free player like the Malata player discussed at avsforum.

    Most popular shows get released in the UK and other countries on video, because they don't have syndication
    Personally, I will be very proud of whatever studio give the big finger to syndicators, and stops screwing their US customers

    I was wayching an episode of Family Guy (Running Mates) the other day on Sky 1 and, having seen the us version, was a bit cheesed off to see that it had been cut!!!
    Hope the uk dvd release isn't going to be like this!!!

    I read that the first two seasons of Family Guy are coming out in R2 & R4.
    BTW, always buy R4 if you can (aussie) as the DVDs are MUCH cheaper than buying from the UK.

    Speaking of cut episodes. I have a Family Guy: Episode 213
    that has a segment with Osama Bin Laden and the airport. I'm pretty sure this WILL be edited!

    Know what's sad about that? I think I am one of about 3 people who got season 1 on R2, it was the first R2 thing I ever got and I remain only to buy TV stuff on region 2. Regardless, Sony never bothered to put out subsequent seasons. [​IMG]

    Sky's doing possibly, Sky cut a lot of the Simpsons too.

    Greatful for you showing me that in LA, John, that was very funny I must admit. What season was it?
    Whilst signs point to the R2 set of Futurama (out early next year) being much like the Simpsons Season 1 set presentation and extras wise, you all may want to try and get Family Guy as cheap as possible since I've heard it's a simple 2 disc thing but with 5.1 soundtracks for each episode. I may get it myself providing how cheap I can get it.
