Review:

Available to own through Amazon's manufactured on demand service (MOD) is the outrageous adult animation series American Dad Vol. 9, featuring all 19 episodes from the ninth season.

Created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman, the series centers on the CIA Agent Stan Smith (voiced by MacFarlane). When he isn't assassinating a terrorist for his boss, the Deputy Director Avery Bullock (voiced by Patrick Stewart), he tries to have a normal life with his blonde blondeshell wife Francine (voiced by Wendy Schaal), his hippie daughter Hayley (voiced by Rachael MacFarlane), his stonier son-in-law Jeff Fischer (voiced by Jeff Fischer) and his dorky son Steve Smith (voiced by Scott Grimes). Then there is also the alien named Roger living in his attic and the talking goldfish, Klaus Heissler.

Season Nine kicks off with Roger kidnapping Hayley and Stan trying to sell his black SUV. Hayley and Jeff's marriage has hit rock-bottom, especially when Jeff is abducted by aliens. Klaus Heissler steals Stan's body. Francine's childhood catches up with her in "National Treasure 4: Baby Franny:She's Doing Well The Hole Story." Steve continues his dorky life, while Roger goes even zanier.

The episodes on the 3-disc set are:

Love, American Dad Style
Killer Vacation
Can I Be Frank (with You)
American Stepdad
Why Can't We Be Friends?
Adventure in Hayleysitting
National Treasure 4: Baby Franny:She's Doing Well The Hole Story

MacFarlane's sick twisted humor that is featured in Family Guy continues in American Dad. I recall watching the first few seasons of the series, but I quickly tuned out to watch other programs, though I occasionally catch a rerun on TBS, which is the new home of the series after if was cancelled by Fox. The best character is the alien Roger with all his different personalities. Season Nine gets the Amazon MOD treatment with on extras or special features. Despite being on DVD-Rs, the picture quality is excellent. The episodes are also uncensored with a few f-bombs here and there. Overall, the episodes on the American Dad Vol. 9 DVD are a hilarious and should satisfy most fans.
