There was a simpler time, not so long ago, when Seth MacFarlane had yet to secure domination over Fox's Sunday-night line-up. A time when Family Guy
was his only baby, and when The Cleveland Show
was just an ugly spark dancing around his neurons and waiting to be born. But before things spun that out of control, we would first get the middle child, American Dad
. A show I hated with vigor initially, but which managed to grow on me. As with all of MacFarlane's shows, you either like his style of humor or you don't, but the show has improved and found its own groove over the years, resulting in memorable American Dad
moments such as, well, the apocalypse. And, again: at least it ain't The Cleveland Show
For those AD
fans out there, the sixth volume of the show will be coming to DVD on April 19th, courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. You can check out the official press release below, which is long on silliness and short on detail. At least we know the set will include some bonus features, though we don't get a full run down of what they'll comprise.
Los Angeles, CA -- Agents from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment closed in on the elusive extraterrestrial named Roger. He was found residing at the home of CIA agent Stan Smith, star of the animated comedy “American Dad.” Imagine our surprise!
Smith has been harboring Roger in Langley Falls, VA where he lives with his not-so-smart wife Francine, his liberal hippie daughter Hayley, geeky yet cocky son Steve and a unique talking goldfish named Klaus. Video Surveillance of Roger and the entire Smith clan will be released on 19 April 2011 on the “American Dad” Volume 6 DVD.
“American Dad” Volume 6 includes all eighteen hilarious episodes of Season 5, uncensored and loaded with extras including deleted scenes and audio commentary. Volume 6 is available on DVD April 19.
* Please use caution with Roger as he is a known master of disguise and has recently been seen impersonating a jockey, a police officer and even the leader of a small island nation.
