    Not sure if this has already been announced, but the Simpsons "Treehouse Of Horror" DVD will be released on Sept. 2. Retail is $14.95.

    It's probably the same disc that was released in R2, with 4 episodes.

    I wish Fox would just release the seasons faster.

    Then start writing Matt Groening letters asking him to speed up his approvals

    In order to get a commentary track for every episode, it takes time for the participants to record them. That's one of the reasons why these season set take so long. Only 2 more months till Season 3!

    It's been established that the first 4 seasons were finished with recordings something like a year ago. I think there's a different reason.

    It's probably because they figure if the sets came out every couple of months, people would go broke trying to afford them all, thus sales would drop.

    I'm sure the delays are partly due to music rights issues.

    I dunno. Remember these are still the early seasons before they decided they had to include some golden oldie in EVERY EPISODE. Unless they're having a problem with the in-house music guys like Alf Clausen (which I really doubt) I don't think that's the reason.

    Isn't the fact that it's a cartoon and has SO many people involved and the fact that DVDs weren't even invented when the earlier seasons came out on TV have something to do with the speed in which the seasons get approved for DVD use? I'm sure they don't need everyone's approval who worked on the show, but there has to be a higher number then a normal television show. Or it could be the simple fact that they want to make sure EVERYONE has the current season before the newer one comes out.
    I won't be getting this Treehouse DVD if it only has 4 eps. They're on quite regurlarly around here, and I'll eventually have them when I get the seasons on DVD.

    No, it has nothing to do with any of the reasons listed. It has to do with approvals, and Gracie films is the bottleneck.

    Gabe, I'm not sure how you knew about this, but thanks for pointing it out. Your name will be mentioned later today in a TVShowsOnDVD news item that will include the cover art for this puppy. Oh, actually retail is $14.98. [​IMG]

    Dave, thanks for the credit!
    P.S- The cover-art doesn't seem to be working on your page.

    Are they going to not release these episodes in the season sets now, or what?
