    Yup, that's the information we got - not every episode has a commentary track.

    Wow, kind of sad if that's the way it's going to be. Not so much that I think it's absolutely essential for every episode to have a commentary, but it is sad in a "end of an era" kind of way. The set may feel just a little less complete. Oh well.

    I'd like to see commentaries on every episode but what I consider to be the classic era ends pretty much with this season anyway. I know I'll pick up the rest of the seasons but if they're dropping some of the commentaries, I wish they'd speed up the releases.

    If they stick with the schedule of the past couple of years, you can expect Season 11 in December. There are a lot of seasons that need to be released, but I would think 2 seasons a year is pretty much par for the course for most shows being consistentely released.

    Yeah, I'm sure S11 will be out in December but I wish there was a release in maybe March or April in addition to the two in August and December. But you're right, two per year is probably all that I'll get.

    Sad if true, but I'm looking forward to this season because I think it is under rated. At least to me it has a number of my favorite episodes.

    IIRC, weren't some of the previously released season sets also first announced with specs indicating that not every episode would have commentary?

    Not that I remember. This is the press release so I think it's pretty safe to assume that it's accurate.

    No, it's NOT the press release. This is information that a retailer sent to us; the set hasn't been officially announced yet.

    So no one really knows for sure yet. Also, DVDReview.com is reporting that seventeen episodes have commentary. Maybe they just reported wrong. Or, maybe there are conflicting reports

    DVDReview likely got their information from us (as they've done in the past). When I first posted the news to the site I had added an extra bullet at the front, making it look like there were 17 commentary tracks (though the first line was blank).

    Well, at least there's still some hope left that they may all have commentaries then.

    Was I in gumdrop lane, or do I remember a time where one of the guys said that every episode will have a commentary?

    I hope so, as this is the only show that I feel like I have to listen to the commentary - it's easily my favorite consistant commentary and it's awesome to find a hidden one to boot.

    Maybe they just haven't gotten around to recording the last 7 commentaries as we speak. Or maybe they don't have time because they were busy with the movie. I think it's okay either way--we'll forgive them if they've finally run out of things to say after 250 episodes.!

    Which season contained the episode with Patrick McGoohan and the tribute to The Prisoner? I feel like it may have been season 10, although it could easily have been season 11.

    That episode is The Computer Wore Menace Shoes from S12.

    There's also that great gag in The Joy Of Sect from S9 with Marge escaping the Movementarian compound with the Rover (I think that's the name of it- it's been years since I've seen The Prisoner) and it engulfs Hans Moleman.

    However many commentaries there are on the future sets, I'm on board. I am a little shocked, though, that S10 isn't coming out in early July to promote the movie. We are getting three Simpsons releases this year, if the pattern holds: S10 and S11, plus the movie.

    Good enough for me.

    I hope they speed them up to three sets a year.
