Worst packaging ever! ...Simpsons 6

    Out of all the DVDs I own, the packaging for the new Simpsons Season 6 takes
    the cake! Yeah, it looks kinda neat, but it's a pain in the ass. I'm glad
    they offer the "boring" case via mail. But I now have to pay $3 shipping.
    And, while cute at first, the slip of paper and the phone message describing
    how to get the older type of packaging in retrospect is a bit insulting.
    Yeah, I know I'm anal about having the box art match for all the
    seasons--but I also want something a bit more accessible, not something I'm
    going to throw against the wall out of frustration. I've already dropped
    the friggin' disc holder while trying to pry Homer's head apart. Thank
    goodness there were no scratches on the disc that came tumbling out. I'm
    grateful for the discs and the option of getting the "old" packaging, but
    what an inconvenience. Anyone else hate it?

  2. And put up with the major bit of petulant snubbing in the very act of
    disagreeing with one of Groening's self-marketing ideas.

    I thought it was kind of cool. I was wondering if they're going to use
    the rest of the characters for the rest of the sets:

    Season 6 - Homer
    7 - Marge
    8 - Bart
    9 - Lisa
    10 - Maggie

    - Jordan

    Well, with the slow way they are dribbling out the series and how long
    the series has run, there will be enough for *every* character from the

    They did two seasons last year. They're doing two seasons this year.
    Hardly a dribble considering the number of commentaries they have
    to record for each set.

    In the Year of the Cock, the Great and Powerful Jeff Rife declared:
    And Season 7 comes out in December. That's two releases per year for
    two years running -- and not coincidentally, the faster release
    schedule corresponds to TV shows on DVD becoming popular.
    Well, the alternatives are for them to cut the commentaries or
    cancel the show so the crew will have more time to record them.

    Of course, the show isn't likely to last until 2014 -- Groening's
    said several times he just wants to beat Bonanza's record as the
    longest running series before calling it quits.
    So you'll be better off with them eking the series out slowly so
    you'll have fewer seasons to repurchase.

    http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/ is on top of every TV show, and really
    popular ones (like "The Simpsons") they have very early details about.
    Yet, there isn't even a flicker of a hint there that anything is coming
    out in December.

    The only hint that it might be out then is an insert in some current
    DVD releases, and we all know how notoriously bad that is.
