It's time once again to let it all hang out with an all-new volume of animated outrageousness! From the disturbed comic minds of Mike Barker, Matt Weitzman, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, comes the always insane adventures of CIA operative Stan Smith and his wonderfully twisted family. In the 100th episode, Hayley elopes with Jeff! Other episodes include Stan on jury duty, Steve walking in on his amorous parents, Roger dating Steve's best friend, and yet another AD Christmas classic. Plus, there are serial killers, Turkish amphetamines, and evil clones - so, you know, the usual!

This set has some very funny episodes. The Christmas Special "For Whom the Sleigh Bell Tolls" was just fantastic. "The People vs. Martin Sugar" had me laughing for days after it aired(Several references to "The Fugitive"). In the episode "Flirting With Disaster", the opening sequence and the first 5-6 minutes of the show is a spoof of "The Office" as a documentary crew films Stan and his co-workers in their office. This sequence is an absolute riot. There are quite a few more episodes on this set that I do like: Stanny Boy and Frantastic, School Lies, Home Wrecker, 100 A.D., Stan's Food Resturant among others are all hilarious. So far during the current 2011-2012 season, there hasn't been a really good episode yet so this DVD set could be the last good one unless things improve.
Anyway, American Dad was a show that for years I ignored. I never gave it the time of day, after all I had Family Guy. Well, Family Guy for me has started to wane in years past and I decided one night to give American Dad a try. My brother and I laughed ourselves almost to the point of hiccupping. This show is histerical. Also this is NOT Family Guy Jr. This show follows it's own formula and style. I.E. no cut scenes like Family Guy.
I have pretty much now seen all the older re-runs and now watch the new episodes every Sunday night.
This particular volume contains some especially funny episodes. One that jumps to mind is the Jury Duty episode with Roger and Stan. Roger really gets into his characters and his "Martin Sugar" persona was a riot.
Judging from what I've seen, American Dad and Family Guy do not releases seasons, but volumes. I don't know if this means you don't get a complete season or what is the case. I do know you get quite a few episodes in this set though.
This would be a great gift for a soldier overseas, I doubt those guys have tv over there. The reality is though that this tv show IS sindicated now and is on at least 3 times a day. So for me at least, owning it is not high on my list.
However many people can not afford cable, I know I couldn't if I lived on my own, so just buying a series here and there is probably cheaper.
If you are one of these people, give this show a chance. Especially if you have never seen it before. It will crack you up.
***One techical aspect you may want to research before buying. Fox has the bad habit of release different cuts of tv shows. I have on numerous occasions watched Family Guy and then watched the same episode on Adult Swim and have seen differences. Usually Fox cuts stuff from their episodes, while Adult Swim will air more explicit content matter. What do you get on DVD, I honestly don't know...
Well, that's my 2 cents on this great show and this Volume 7 home release, hope it was helpful. As always, sorry for any spelling and grammer errors, I went to public school...
