    Simpsons to DVD: D'oh Dead!

    If I can put on my tinfoil hat here for a second...something really doesn't add up here. It's easy to point out how many far less popular shows continue to be released on DVD, but that's just circumstantial evidence. The fact that Al Jean promises they will continue to record commentaries is...

    How to play 4:3 on widescreen TV?

    I just recently upgraded to HD but as TV-DVD fans can attest, there's still a very sizable amount of titles that are meant to be seen in 4:3, yet the DVDs display in the full widescreen, stretching the image and making it less clear.   Is there a way to make your TV and/or DVD "smart" so it...

    HTF DVD REVIEW: Saturday Night Live - The Complete 5th Season

    From what I understand, his ego just sort of gets the best of him. He refused to appear on the 15th anniversary special because Billy Crystal was going to be there and they had a history of some sort, and then he apparently refused to do the 25th because he was still bitter over David Spade's...

    HTF DVD REVIEW: Saturday Night Live - The Complete 5th Season

    Offer S6 (and maybe all unpopular seasons) as a limited edition online-only title at NBC.com and/or Amazon. Maybe even do it as a pre-order so they have an idea of how many copies to press. They could probably get away with charging more for these too.

    HTF DVD REVIEW: Saturday Night Live - The Complete 5th Season

    We only saw two seasons a year once. We didn't hear anything about S5 until late August last year.

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    His performance in All-Stars has absolutely no bearing on how well he plays the game. Maybe in the first season, he was essentially shooting fish in a barrel, but I think a player of his sort would do well in any season (although obviously the Richard Hatch has a reputation that precedes...

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    Besides Rudy, Frank Garrison is the most quotable contestant ever. He just had a way of phrasing things in a way that was simultaneously wise, confusing, and just strange. I always like to use the "I spent nine months of softness in my mother's womb, everything's hard after that" line, although...

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    I actually love Africa (I need to do a new season ranking now that S20's over) but after Kelly leaves it goes severely downhill. Especially after Frank goes. Damn you, Mark Burnett, for casting my two favorite players ever in the same season and not having either crack the top 6.

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    I'd love to see a Second Chance season with people who got out early or got screwed through no fault of their own. I asked Jeff Probst about this on Twitter and he said it would only appeal to diehard fans but I don't think that's the case. I think for most viewers it would just end up being...

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    Ok, giving this a go...the top 27 players in 20 seasons of Survivor (originally a top 25 but I forgot somebody after I started ). My general criteria is that the best players are the ones who seem likely to do well and have a chance of winning if you put them in any group of strangers playing...

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    According to spoilers, he was telling his fellow contestants "the blonde girl" won his previous season. Whether he was tipped off by producers, guessing, or deliberately misleading them into thinking he wasn't a former winner is anybody's guess. FWIW, Probst insists that Russell had no idea if...

    Survivor - Heroes vs. Villians (season 20) official discussion thread

    I'll try and get in a more full post later, but for right now... I just don't understand how Russell--or anybody playing this game--can be so completely ignorant about how it works. Yes, you usually do have to make big moves to win this game. But you don't make big, risky moves for the sake...

    Survivor - Samoa

    Yeah, there was no family visit which was surprising but welcome IMO--the last two seasons they went soft and everybody got a visit. I don't really see anyone changing their mind on whether Russell deserved to win or if the jury was bitter--but I think the key point is that sometimes it's not...
