I noticed that as of Today(4/24/10) Amazon has the incorrect information listed as far as the episodes and features on this set. The information they have( again, as of 4/24, for all I know they could change it by the time you read it ) is actually from the Family Guy Volume 5 set. Here is the info for this set:

Disc 1

Phantom of the Telethon
Chimdale
Stan Time
Family Affair
Live and Let Fry
Roy Rogers McFreely

Disc 2

Jack's Back
Bar Mitzvah Hustle
Wife Insurance
The Delorean Story-an
Every Which Way But Loose
The Wiener of our Discontent

Disc 3

Daddy Queerest
Stan's Night Out
Bonus Features: Deleted Scenes and Power Hour Drinking Game

And as always, there will be commentary by the staff for every episode.

Now, my literary and reviewing talents are not great, so I won't give you a long in depth review of the episodes. But I can say that I have liked the show from the beginning, and these episodes are as good as ever. If you like the show, you'll like this set. If you are just a fan of the other animated shows, comedy shows in general, satire, or just a fan of random 80's references, you will also like the show. Hope the info helped.

UPDATE: Got the set today, a few days after I had planned, unfortunately. In addition to the bonus features listed, on Disc 2 there is a Fact Up version of Bar Mitzvah Hustle. For those not familiar with what that is( I really wasn't either) Basically you can watch the episode, and as you watch little facts about the episode (or related to the episode in some way) pop up every few seconds. Kinda like those old VH1 Pop up videos. I thought it was pretty interesting and neat, and fans of the show should enjoy it.

"American Dad" is in its fifth volume! Weird, huh? It seems like that show just started. Even though "The Cleveland Show" has just finished its first run, that show already has more buzz collectively I've noticed than "American Dad" also from the some of the same minds. "Family Guy" is a huge hit and while with "American Dad," the apple does not fall far from the tree in terms of style and timing, the different mash-up of characters can make the show expansive or limited depending on the situation hatched from the minds of creators Mike Barker, Seth MacFarlane, and Matt Weitzman.

To explain better, the premise of "American Dad" is that CIA Agent Smith (Seth MacFarlane) has an average family with a flighty blond wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), two kids: Steve (Scott Grimes) the nerd who takes after his dad and Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane) the liberal hippie who is at odds with her dad and then a couple of kookie characters are thrown in. Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker) the German trapped in the body of a fish who lusts after Francine and Roger (also Seth MacFarlane), the alien who happens to live with them and dresses in disguise constantly.

Family formula plus a couple of off the wall factors makes for creative and interesting situations. On the plus side, this show gives an easy platform for making fun of political situations and conventions taking into account Stan's job and Hayley's leanings. On the negatives, sometimes the jokes are almost outdated by the time they get put on the air due to the time it takes to animate and sending to Korea. The broader the comedy, the better it works. Occasionally it seems like there are too many CIA plots and feels limiting to the spectrum of the show.

I don't understand why this show isn't more popular. Its writing is fantastic its characters are likeable and creative. I can't rave enough about this show and it just seems to get better with each season. A must buy for anyone who is a fan of Family guy but the show has a little more structure and feels more well rounded. I've watched this season alone about 10 times through and it still makes me laugh every time. I put it on before bed and fall asleep happy every night.

I have all volumes of American Dad and they are very, very funny. The uncensored episodes are a scream. Seth McFarland and his staff have wild imaginations and the funniest scripts ever.

Just a laugh out loud type of show with something crazy going on every second. The animation is just as good as Family Guy (the same people make both series) and they have a "take no prisoners" attitude toward everyday situations and behaviors.

Stan, C.I.A agent and head of household, is a riot: zany yet all the time insisting he's the sane one. Francine, his wife, is HOT! Too bad she's just 2D :). Everybody else in the home, the alien Roger, the son Steve and the daughter are just as nutty as the adults.

I have every DVD set so far. I can't get enough of these guys.

I love American Dad! and find it hilarious and unique. The setting of the show is different from many of the other animated comedies and the characters are cute, crude and hilarious. I have spoke to a lot of people who don't like the show very much and I just don't understand how they couldn't. I have noticed the ratings are slowly declining year after year. I certainly hope more people start to watch this gem so it doesn't get canceled anytime soon. The show has been consistently getting better and better year after year. I really think Roger (the alien) makes the show so hilarious and fun to watch. Please check the show out if you haven't already--I bet you will adore it!!

The show revolves around the Smiths, a family with the breadwinner working for the CIA. They harbor an alcoholic/cross-dresser alien and a fish with the brain of a German ski professional. The episodes involve the antics of Stan Smith of the CIA, the alien, the son Steve and his "dork" friends, Halie the liberal daughter and Francine the oblivious housewife.
