|Family Guy-Season 1||R1|
Sadly, the R1 version of this has the R4 release totally whipped. The R1 release comes as a 4-Disc set incorporating Seasons 1 and 2. Just limiting the comparison to the first two discs, the R1 release has audio commentaries for the episodes Death Has A Shadow, The Son Also Draws, Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater, and Holy Crap. It also has a production featurette. Sound is only available in 2.0 Dolby Surround, but it is available in English, Spanish and French.
Given that the R4 release has nothing in the way of extras and apparently comparable video, the only real difference is the 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack available in R4. However, in my opinion, this remix is a largely wasted effort, and a 2.0 Dolby Surround track would have provided a similar effect.
All up, I’m giving this to the R1 release – not only to you get the first two seasons in one batch, available at a competitive price, you also get a bunch of extras.
