American Dad episodes are great.
MOD discs mean that the bottom of the discs are purple and have been privately burned by Fox to save money. They scratch easier and dont last as long. But you pay full price. No deleted scenes or extra footage. Also no animations in disc menu.
other then that the episodes are funny and the quality of picture is the same.

Would not recommend buying unless you don't have access to a computer capable of streaming
Unlike other reviewers, I had no playback problems with this MoD DVD set (playing on an LG Blu-Ray player) which is why I gave it that second star. However, let me talk about the menu for a second. Imagine a black screen with the DVD cover photo on the left and a list of the episode titles on the right in plain white text. My 5-year old nephew could have made a better menu screen in MS Paint. I like the show, and they are uncensored, but there is nothing of value added to this product. This just goes to show that Fox doesn't care about the consumer at all and just wants your money. I honestly didn't think it could be as bad as some of the reviews that I read which didn't provide specifics, but seriously, it is worse.

The show is still good, the DVD release sucks
By Mike S.
The show is still funny, if you like the brand of humor. Most likely anyone getting this set will know what the show has been, and has been a fan of it. All the episodes are uncensored and very much not for kids. As has been the case with both Family Guy and American Dad, nothing is off limits to make fun of, and they pretty well go all out in everything.
The reason to knock it down two stars is the DVD release. They have gone the total cheap route and instead of doing a regular release where you get well manufactured discs, and some bonus material, this is just the episodes burned on to a DVD-R disc. Really the only reason to get this is if you have the prior seasons on DVD and want it for a collection. If not, you might as well just stream the episodes because you are not getting anything else.
