So it's september. Are we gonna get Simpsons S14 soon or what, fellow Europeans?
Nope; it seems like the preliminary release date has been pushed to mid-October according to Amazon.co.uk and mid-November according to two well-known Swedish DVD online stores so we Europeans are not out of the woods.
Anyway, let me get this straight: so they are greatly delaying the DVD release just because they have the 500th episode going on down along the line?; well, I must admit that feels pretty stupid and I don't think the 500th episode is gonna help the DVD sales all that much.
it being released less than 3 weeks before christmas here might help sales.
I wonder if they are ever gonna consider to close the giant gap between the season they are airing and the season they are releasing.
With how shitty the economy is doing, releasing 2 seasons a year would be 'wrong' because, one, releasing too many seasons too fast would reduce demand and sales, and two Fox wants to keep the revenue stream alive for as long as possible.
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.
Yeah, I guess that's their motivation.
It's Amazing that we can't buy this DVD.... anywhere
There has not even been an official Press Release yet.....

You guys actually liked this season? I thought it was awful. With the exception of a few episodes.
I love ponies
i have no interest in anything but my interests
I thought it was the best season after S9.
I'm not sure what to think of Season 14 as a whole since I've purposely avoided re-watching its episodes for a long time now just waiting for this release. When I look up episode titles and remember what they were actually about I do notice some are better than others but then that is only natural. I am almost 100% sure I prefer at least Season 16 to it though, but then I'm starting to think I actually prefer Season 16 to 9 so I dunno....
i don't have a huge opinion on the season, mostly because i haven't seen the episodes in such a long time. but the ones i have seen have been great, and easily better than 10-12 (though that's of course not really saying much).

Kang and Kodos invite you to add this Emmy Award winning season to your collection filled with your favorite guest stars (Mick Jagger, Lenny Kravitz, Tony Hawk, Blink 182, and more) and exclusive features that will satisfy your hunger. The Simpsons Season 14 is available on Blu-ray and DVD.
Today Fox Home Entertainment officially solicited to retailers The Simpsons - The Complete 14th Season, which we've previously reported will be in stores on December 6th. They've confirmed that the DVD version ($49.98 SRP for a 4-disc set) will have both the normal package and a special "Limited Edition Collector's Box", both seen below. The studio has also made a small change to the packaging of the Blu-ray Disc version ($59.99 SRP for a 3-disc set), which is also seen below...the BD set will NOT get the limited edition box version. More importantly, they've revealed the complete list of bonus material for these!
A Haunting Invite From Matt Groening
Audio Commentaries on every episode with Executive Producers Al Jean and Mike Scully, joined by Writers, Actors and Directors
It's Only Rock 'N' Roll
The 300th Episode Featurette
In The Beginning
The Halloween Classics
Deleted Scenes with Commentary
Multi-Angle Animation Showcase
Bonus Treehouse of Horror Episodes (exclusive to Blu-ray)
Special Language Feature and much more!
Those will accompany the 22 featured episodes running 482 minutes (bonus Treehouse of Horror episodes exclusive to the Blu-ray version bring the BD set's running time up to 527 minutes). The DVD specs show full screen video, audio options in English 5.1 Dolby Digital, French Dolby Digital and Spanish Dolby Digital, plus subtitles in English and Spanish. For the Blu-ray version the episodes will continue to be in full screen 1.33:1 aspect ratio (as originally aired), but in high definition resolution. Audio options include English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French: 5.1 Dolby Digital, and Spanish: 5.1 Dolby Digital. English and Spanish subtitles are on board as well. As of this writing Amazon only lists one of the DVD sets, and isn't actually accepting pre-order for it yet. Stay tuned!

Gotta love TVShowsonDVD.com. They always deliver.
Only 6 more season sets to go until we start getting the gorgeous pristine widescreen HD episodes on Blu-Ray.
I ain't buying this on blu-ray, but if those bonus segments are from later ToH I'll be kinda annoyed. Otherwise don't care and still think this should've been out a month ago but yeah, at least we finally have official confirmation.
What the hell is the point with this shitty THOH theme? They're releasing it at Christmas, not halloween? And why will there be 'bonus' THOH episodes on the Season 14 Blu ray? Who's bright idea was that? It doesn't make any sense? If you want to give the consumer more 'value for money', lower the price, don't dump episodes from other Seasons on the discs.
What a total embarrassment.
Is it a thoh short from another season or is it a season 14 idea that was scrapped?
Damn, it's a shame that the extra THOH episode is Blu-Ray exclusive.. I'd rather buy it on DVD, so...
Well if the new UK date is correct, then region 2 is getting it on the 10th October 2011... which means that it is close to halloween.Originally Posted by Rowdy Roddy Peeper
Doing the math, it appears the blu-ray version will include two bonus THOH episodes.
If they're pre-14 THOH episodes, whats the point? And if they are two HD THOH episodes, which my guess is they are given the blu-ray format, they're pretty weak picks. XX was pretty good, but XXI was weak.
I'm going for the DVD version as it simply has more in terms of package art, disc art and menu animations. I also hate how cheap the blu-ray versions are. Yes, the DVD cases method of disc storage is lame, but I'd take the accordion fold cardboard case with all the pretty art over a standard clear blue blu-ray case. Also, it has been argued here before, but I don't see that much of an improvement in the SD episodes move to blu-ray. It's slight and subtle, and I know its there, but it's not enough to warrant the larger price and dip in packaging (creatively speaking). Plus, the DVD version fits in with the other sets on the shelf.
Oh, and unrelated, but I noticed the other Fox DVD news that tvshowsondvd shared and spotted this not so subtle similarity:

UP AND ATOM!
It looks like they've changed the Blu Ray packaging to be the same as the DVD's. If that is the case, I might go Blu Ray instead of DVD. If the packaging for Blu Ray and DVD are exactly the same and the only difference is picture quality, then I'll probably go Blu Ray. If the Blu Ray is missing some of the cool artwork that comes with the DVD, then I won't get it.
Also, Amazon is now taking pre-orders
Blu Ray http://www.amazon.com/Simpsons-Compl...7404530&sr=8-2
It also has 2 listings for DVD, one for special edition and one for standard I'd assume, but it doesn't distinguish which is which. Could be problematic til they get some pictures up there.
