    SIGH...Yet another inaccuracy reported by CNN. The dopes probably meant the second season of The Sopranos comes out next week. The second season for The Simpsons hasn't been announced yet.

    Good, I haven't made it all the way through the first set yet! I was surprised by how dry the commentaries are. I guess I was expecting these to be funny people, but it doesn't seem to be the case. In any event, it's slow going, usually involving me falling asleep. [​IMG]

    I picked up the Season One Set just to have it because I am a huge Simpsons fan. Truth be told, I haven't even watched all of the episodes because IMO, they just plain suck! I mean, the animation is sketchy and the voices aren't "there" yet. For me, they're just tough to watch. Season Two is where they start getting better and by Season Three, WATCH OUT...full-on Simpsons hilarity ensues!!!
    Without being constrained by what season it's a part of, what episodes in particular are you guys interested in having on DVD? I'd like to start off the list with my contribution...3D Homer (Halloween Episode).
    BTW, given the following announcement from the Simpsons Archive, I wonder if this episode will be released on DVD:
    According to Entertainment Weekly, episode "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" (4F22) with the World Trade Center has been pulled from syndication. However, Fox has only sent a list of episodes to review to the stations, who make the final call.

    The "Twin Tower" worrying is just so much hokum. That episode was somewhere around season 8 or so, so it would be at least 4 years before it hits DVD. If we're still uber-sensitive about these things, then Lord help us!

    This might sound nutty, but I'm kinda relieved that the next Simpsons DVD won't be out 'til next year!

    Maybe they re also thinking about removing the George Bush episode, the Barts girlfriend episode (has a restaurant called 2 guys from Kabul).
    The Treehouse of terror episode with the Y2k when planes just fall out of the sky. Or the fear of flying episode.

    [sarcasm] I bet if they edited out every offensive reference in the Simpsons we could probably get all of the remaining seasons out on one disk in about a week or so. [/sarcasm]
    Not making light of the past few months but censorship is easily motivated.

    Ron: They always pull offensive episodes from syndication. It's a fairly common practice. I'm not worried about it not showing up on DVD.

    Actually, the Y2K Treehouse of Horror episode was shown on Global up here last week as part of the Halloween re-run-athon.

    I think pulling the episode with the Twin Towers is stupid. Just because they ceased to exist on Sept. 11, doesn't mean they never existed at all. This episode, cartoon though it may be, took place before Sept. 11, 2001, and as such, the Twin Towers were there. It's a fact. The events of Sept. 11th cannot change the fact that the Twin Towers were there before that day.
    It seems that some people would rather forget that which is best off being remembered.

    All that's happening is that Fox has sent a list of episodes to temporarily pull from syndication, but is leaving the final decision with the stations. Seems like a prudent thing to do. It's not like this is permanent or an order.
    It seems like a prudent course of action to present a recommendation to the stations, and leave the final decision with them.

    Although it'll be a while before the Season 8 discs arrive, I hope Fox doesn't pull the Twin Towers episode. Being originally from NY, I think it's a great episode!

    Good point, but if you're read anything about the upcoming Spiderman movie, the director has changed a lot of the movie due to the fact that the towers played a pretty big "scenery" role. Of course, the movie hasn't been released yet, but the towers were standing when it was filmed. Just a thought...

    Well I still haven't picked up the first season set yet, due to the fact that most of the episodes(minus Sideshow Bob's framing episode) are just boring and not up to speed(including the odd black Smither in one episode). But still, I bet "Homer Verus the State of New York" will arrive on DVD when it comes up sometime later. And on a odd note, on the day of the attack, the station had planned to air that very episode that night. But since the news was on instead, it never happened(found out from Comcast's episode info).

    And because it hasn't been released yet, Spidey is a completely different situation. When photography/editing actually took place is irrelevant as far as the public is concerned.

    Agreed, but if you're a Simpsons fan, don't you just have to have it to complete the set???

    I truly don't aggree with this. Yes they are a tad bit slow but when you look at the way each episode is put together, I find them to be better than the most recent seasons. The writing is friggin brilliant. ANd the way Bart looks up to homer and the emotion and GOD they are great episodes.
