Come Clean, Amazon!
on 20 August 2013
Don't worry, Seth hasn't lost his touch. There's much hilarity, invention and magical Rogerismo in the new series, with some characters finding a new space in the limelight. Probably worth the price just to see Roger as a military toilet cleaner!
However, if like me you just have a standard TV/DVD combination (which has previously worksed just fine for all Region 2 discs# you'll be weatching all this in black and white! Fox's decision to issue this in a "Region 2" format that nonetheless requires NTSC compatability is a gesture of utter contempt to Region 2 viewers, and Amazon hasn't helped by failing completely to point this out. I bought the DVD as soon as it appeared and, when it played in monochrome, thought it was faulty, sent it back and bought another one #needless to say, also black and white# - surely, Amazon, a word of information might have been useful here! Simply selling it as "Region 2 NTSC " won't convey to many people that this is not designed to play on their machines. Hope you get lots and lots of returns! My poor rating is not for the content of the disc but for the fact that it was effectively mis-sold to me #twice# as appropriate for a straightforward Region 2 viewing - and it isn't. Fox's decision is infuriating but Amazon could at least point out that this may well not play correctly for many purchasers. If, like me, you've bought all the previous American Dad discs, it simply won't occur to you that this one is going to present a problem.
