    I'm going to assume that the picture quality is as good as they could possibly make it. These aren't the "hot off the presses" episodes of today, and I was satisfied with the job they did with the first two seasons. There's only so much you can do with what you're given...

    Easter Egg details

    Insert DVD Three and from the main menu, enter “84763” on your remote. This brings up the menu of audio outtakes.

    Great review.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but what is a pop up episode, and how does one access said episode?

    Have you ever watched VH1 pop-up video? Its just a feature than as you are watching the episode, little white boxes pop up giving you trivia about certain things. Usually its triva on an item or person in the shot at the time.

    You pick the Colonel Homer episode, hit "special features" and you will see the pop-up option.

    I'm very picky when it comes to picture quality, so I was somewhat apprehensive when I received this set today, debating whether to open it or wait for other reviews.

    With a mixture of relief and delight I'm can report that, from my standpoint at least, these episodes look fine - easily besting the UK digital transmissions on Sky and the BBC.

    Maybe we've been spoiled by the picture quality on the recent Futurama DVD releases, but these 1991 Simpsons episodes were never in that league.

    Does anyone have the word on whether they used Aerosmith's original music or not in "Flaming Moe's?"

    I popped in the Flaming Moe's episode and can report that it certainly sounds like Aerosmith performing "Walk This Way," if that's the song in question.
