I don't really care about the quality of a cartoon. But f**k, that piracy advert on S12 disc 1 is soo high quality on my normal TV.
(Users Browsing this Thread: )
Middle of the road LCD or Plasma 40" HDTV: $500
HDMI Cable (avoid rip off Monster Cables) $5
The biggest pain is paying the extra 10 dollars for the blu ray set, but just wait a bit and get it used off amazon for less than the new DVD set.

Or wait until your eyes are so wasted and you can't see the difference between HD and non-HD anymore.
^ 3D is definately a waste of money. I have an HDTV, but I still plan on buying this set in DVD form, for the sake of having all of my sets in DVD.
Great DVD-players combined with great TVs can upscale the quality of DVDs,
reaching picture-quality that rivals Blu-Ray. (which is overestimated in possibilities anyway,
the only place where those Blu-Rays really make a difference is in the pockets of the people)
I've done way nerdier things at a movie cinema....
But srsly, will the Simpsons really be worth it in 3D?
I hope The Simpsons doesn't go 3D, becuase the style will change. The problem with most 3D movies is that you often see random crap happening, like things flying towards the screen, and in 2D, you just think: WTF!
3D is a bad thing, plain and simple.
Ya, but this isn't Avatar. This is a cartoon and 3D would add verry little, if not nothing to the quality of the show. If they ever go 3D, it would only be used in gimmicky ways such as things flying at the screen and stuff.
They're $32 (DVD) and $40 (BD) on Amazon.com right now, so not a huge difference in price
Only a fucking asshole would make the Simpsons 3D. Unfortunately, alot of the staff are fucking assholes these days.
well obviously they can't just come out and say "The show sucks!" because then they would lose fans and stuff
and the second thing IMO has more to do with Fox. I honestly don't think if they wanted to end it, they could (or at least say a few years ago), but that is really sad. It's basically fact that the ONLY reason it is still going is money. For shame
well considering the show's "decline" is all up to opinions, it shouldn't make the people who work on it assholes if they disagree...
I watch several shows and I have always noticed that the writing staff and executive producers always come out to the public to speak their minds on the current condition of their show and they will release information on how they don't want to cheat their audience with a certain plot line (Dexter) or they want to bring the show back down to earth because they admit their last season was too wacky (Scrubs). Even Seinfeld was aware that without Larry David, their last 2 seasons were paving the road to something strange, therefore they decided to end it while the show was still a hit.
The Simpsons staff however, never discusses anything critical-wise. Sure, they will come out and say "Yeah we're doing an episode where the family's house is under foreclosure and we believe it's going to be a cool one..." or "I believe this will be the best season yet", but there is nothing in those press releases about improving the current quality or at least about trying to give some effort in improving a small aspect of the show. Instead we just get cliche blanket statements, like "Best season ever" and they never delve into why it will be. Nothing gets changed. They are not only lazy, but they are cowards for not acknowledging anything. They give us that 20th anniversary documentary which strangely focused more on the first 10 years, which came close to recognizing the last 10 years of universal criticism towards the show, but instead of giving us a response they make jokes as if opinions expressed over the internet is some foreign method of communication beyond someone's understanding.
"What's your take on the fan's criticism towards the show in recent seasons?"
Al Jean: Hey, we won the emmy.
What kind of bs is that? That's called ignorance. As long as they have the success from the movie, the ride, their recent awards, the overall commercial name that is currently "The Simpsons", AND YET disconnect themselves from not only the fans, but the outside world, then they can do whatever the hell they want. I've never seen a show's name become so overrated to the point where it underestimates the original show (first 8-9 years).
Sorry for the rant, but the situation of it all frustrates me every time I try to think about it.
