    I was really very pleased with the Season 1 set. This is how EVERY Animated show to DVD needs to be done. Take note studios!

    However, there is one small thing I would have like to see included. Animated menus! Here's an idea, how about have the Simpson familly and friends themselves guide you through the DVD, while making fun of it along the way? For instance. Homer introducing the Extras buy saying something like, "Click here if you want to see Rich people talking about their creations, as they watch the episode along with you."

    What does everyone else think?

    To me the menu would have to be done right, unless implemented right this kind of animated menu could get to flashy.

    I could care less about animated menus. I'd be more interested in something useful like a "Play All" option. Plus, there were lots of technical glitches with various players on the Season 1 release. The only other problem I had with Season 1 was that the menus were so much louder than the actual show. It gets pretty annoying having to turn down the sound every time you go back to the menu..and you're forced to go back to the menu because there's no play all option! If you're going to force us back to the menu at least keep the sound at a constant level. Otherwise, the Season 1 release was excellent.

    Season 1 release was solid, however animated menus would have definitely been nice. I would venture to say FOX will jump up a level or two with Season 2 and give us more extras and animated menus.

    I think animated menus would be nice but they do get annoying after a while, especially if they are long between the time you can make a selection. If they do put animated menus on it, I hope you can just push skip and make your selection on screen.

    A cool feature would be direct jump to the blackboard & living rooms clips that start each episode. Or maybe just stills that highlight each of these for all the episodes.

    Plus, make sure it's chapter encoded so that you can skip directly past the intro if you so desire. Some of the episodes in the first set encoded chapter 1 as the intro plus part of the beginning of the actual show.

    I agree 100%! I posted a message requesting the "Play All" option in the Studio and Manufacturer Feedback section right after vol. 1 was released & was surprised that nobody posted any responses.

    I agree with the others who stated they wanted a "Play All" option.
