this dvd set is superb. This series follows the life of CIA agent Stan Smith and his family.
There's Francine, the loving housewife who has plenty of adventures of her own.
Hailey, Stan's liberal daughter whose views constantly conflict with those of her ultra-conservative father.
Steve, the nerdy son who is just trying to get by in life.
Roger, an alien from Area 51, who has been forbidden to leave the house, has made himself obsessed with television.
and Klaus, a German Olympic skier whose brain has been trapped inside the body of a goldfish.
The episodes are:
