The Simpsons Season 6

#1 Post by Gren » 21 Jun 2005, 13:48

If you're like me and eagerly await each new season on DVD you'll be glad to know it will be released on 16th August in the US and 5th September in the UK.
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

with these US release dates (and differences between the dates), it seems like they're releasing a season once every 6 months or so:

1: 25 sep 01 [315d = 10m12d]
2: 6 aug 02 [385d = 1y20d]
3: 26 aug 03 [294d = 9m20d]
4: 15 jun 04 [189d = 6b6d]
5: 21 dec 04 [238d = 7m26d]
6: 16 aug 05

With season 26 premiering around Jan 2014 (unless they kill this thing (finally)), season 25 would come out on DVD right around when 26 starts to air.

(Clearly I'm avoiding doing work :roll:)
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

They have a different container for this season. I hope they don't try to charge extra. :roll:

Man, I am so behind. After I finish Buffy, I am going to start from Ep 1 through NetFlix.

Damn it... why change the box? That's not going to look right on my shelf!

I'm also pissed that Volumes 1 and 2 of Seinfeld were blue, but 3 was green... 4 better be green too. Why do they do this to us OCD fans?! WHYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?

So it would be easy to find you, when they decide to lock you up.

nice box, but i like having all 26 of my simpsons box sets the same size/dimensions/type...9 years from now, they will take up an entire book shelf...i'd be ok if 1 and 26 were different, so i could use them as bookends for the rest, but not randomly at #6...grrr

ok, the 'tin' isn't a tin, but plastic...and it breaks easily and EVERYTHING just falls out of it when u open it...so it's horrible...they will also do this the next 4 seasons with the rest of family, ending with Bart in #11


however, for those of us who hate this box, they put in the following note:

"For all those that fear change...and for those anal-retentive nerds who like their DVD boxes to line up perfectly on the shelf...and for all those who dislike storing their digital media inside a hollowed-out human head, have we got a deal for you:
Just call [1-800 #] for a very derivative, old-style, just-like-before box with almost nothing new or creative to annoy or terrify you. Enjoy!"




so, the head is for marketing purposes...to get people to buy it at the store, but those of us who care about quality and asthetics can have them send us a box to match the rest of them...so that's good news

If this is a joke I'm going to be pissed... I preorded it at Suncoast, but I'm sure they'll be closed by the time I catch up on all these damn orange flags!
