    I store my DVD's in separate amarray cases. I then put those amarray cases in to the slipcase that identifies the season. :P

    The cases only cost like 0.20 each so why not. :P

    I did this.
    It's sad that I have to change the package-method though because they prefer a packaging-system that leaves scratches over the userfriendly-one from the first ten boxsets.

    Good grief...I put in the S14 blu ray and this is unbelievably clear. The only drawback is the is the cell layering's shadow is very noticeable.


    Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.

    "One of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you've eaten, or how long you should go on vacation if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you'll hate it. So it's the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn't get worn out." -- Jerry Seinfeld

    I've been watching the upscaled DVDs from the first 9 seasons and I wasn't expecting the quality to be THAT better. The DVDs on an 55" HDTV look like you applied the 'blur' filter to them when compared to the blu-ray versions. If they can make Seasons 1-10 loo this good, I'll consider rebuying them.

    The preHD versions don't have the photoshopped look to the lines, but the hand drawn lines are now almost pure black, but still have the nice, non-stiff look to them.

    I did always notice that "shading" thing in Blu-Ray screenshots.

    Anyways, I gotta get up real early, and as much as I'd love to chat about Blu-Rays, I don't want to pull an all-nighter here.

    I wish they would release the bluray-boxsets in Europe also.

    And yes... bluray can do wonders for animation.
    I saw Lady and The Tramp's diamond version and it was simply stunning.

    bump.

    finally bought this (which i said in another thread... and on twitter... not the point).

    what i like:

    -so far, the episodes are pretty decent. they're kinda in the hit-and-miss category thus far but i've laughed a good amount of times thus far.

    -the innards continue to be pretty good. i know it's been posted but the nohomers reference makes me happy.

    -the DVD menus continue to go with the theme, just like the past like 8 seasons, but it works well.

    i wish there were more deleted scenes. so far i'm only up to disc 2, and there have been like no interesting or funny deleted scenes. it sucks. they should just put up every single deleted scene from each of the episodes so we get our money's worth, for those of us that like the deleted scenes.

    overall, very nice. can't wait for s15.

    I stopped watching deleted scenes since season 8.
    If the episodes are hit-and-miss, how can you expect the deleted scenes to be decent?

    I feel that, unlike the actual episodes, we shouldn't get irked if the deleted scenes aren't funny; I mean, they're deleted. If anything, I think we should be glad if they're not funny, because it means that the writers knew what was appropriate to cut.

    Can I just say that I was vastly disappointed with this set? Felt like it had virtually no special features.

    i don't think the episodes are as hit-and-miss as the majority of people. plus some instances they're even better than a lot of the jokes in the episodes.

    i wish they'd have more on classic era ones too. maybe not every single deleted scene, because i'm sure there are loads, but i remember on the s7 DVD i was watching deleted scenes with commentary, to know why they were cut, and oakley and weinstein talked about a sequence from Bart on the Road where him and the guys stop at a buffet or something; it was a fairly long sequence but it essentially had like no jokes? or it was just really boring? i would've liked to see that, for some reason the description made it sound interesting.

    speaking of deleted scenes, i finally finished s14 yesterday, and i knew there was a lack of deleted scenes, but shit. there's only 10 minutes, and none of them are even that good. it was awful. then, to add to my frustration, i turned on the commentaries because i thought "alright, maybe jean has good reasons for why these were deleted". and you know what, maybe he does; if he'd actually talk about the damn deleted scenes. Seriously, throughout like all of them, all he says is "And this is a deleted scene from episode..." Yea, thanks Al Jean, we couldn't tell what episode it was deleted from, you know, when they show the scene before the actual deleted scene? And when he did give a reason it was because the scene wasn't funny or whatever. Is that the only reason? If so, why even have commentaries for the deleted scenes? I only watched the commentaries for those because on the older sets, primarily with Oakley and Weinstein, they'd actually give reasons why they were deleted. A lot of the time it was because of time restraints or whatever, but at least they were still informative on the subject. I'm probably just pissed off because I like the deleted scenes bonus feature on the sets, but these were awful. I hope next season they have better ones with actual explanations why

    David Silverman, back in the late 90's before he quit the first time, had a reel of deleted scenes he shown college kids when he gave various speeches. In the first 8 seasons alone, he said there were over 3 hours of deleted/extended scenes. Kinda makes the 10 minutes of footage from S14 look cheap.

    i hated the fact there were only 10 minutes. i don't know if that disappointed me more, or if it was Al Jean over the commentaries.

    "And uh, this is a deleted scene from How I Spent My Strummer Vacation."

    END COMMENTARY

    Wow, nice and informative.

    Commentaries on deleted scenes are useless and should be done away with. We get it, the episode ran long.

    or a certain joke just wasn't funny so it was cut.

    i dunno, i find stuff like that somewhat entertaining.
