Family Guy... A quick question

Is the R2 or any other outside the US uncut? I am just so disappointed that some scenes were cut, and it'd be nice to get another Family Guy set with the few scenes back in....

The R2 has the same cuts as the R1.

Actually, the R2 of volume one had one less cut than the R1 has according to this site:

I thought I had read on http://www.planet-familyguy.com that the same masters were used, but I guess not. Glad I got the R2's now. Thanks for the info...

Yes, it is disgusting that they would ruin what could be a great DVD set because of censorship! I wonder how much is censored beyond what is already known.

While JFK is in the UK set, for the other two edits, the only place to get them pure 100% uncut is through *cough* other means.

By the way do you have any idea what else has been cut?

So far we know

S1:

Stewie’s wish
JFK Pez (R1 only)

S2:

Osama Bin Laden.

What else could be cut?

"Censorship" is a strong word that does not necessarily apply to this example. Series creator Seth MacFarlane made the changes himself because he felt those jokes were no longer funny and were insensitive to the audience.

PC, maybe, but not censored.

False!! He did not even know about the edits till an interviewer mentioned them.

I noticed "Road to Rhode Island"...there's some footage missing; an Osama bin Laden joke was cut.

There was some debate over that. I kinda stayed out of that debate because I didn't really have a strong opinion one way or the other. There are arguments for keeping it in and arguments for taking it out. The argument to keep it in is that's how the show aired and it was broadcast this way and it aired two years before September 11, and so there's a bit of entertainment historical value there. And obviously the argument for taking it out was that because it was one of the biggest tragedies, there was some thought that it might bring down the rest of the episode when that comes up. There was some thought at one point of putting it on separately at the end, and that was really...I guess it was a legal decision that Fox made to leave it out. It's unfortunate in that it's a part of the episode that was produced and was aired and is sort of gone forever, but it's a small loss in the grand scheme of things.

Fortunately, it is not "gone forever"
