It's there on the extras menu, it's not a featurette, it's two 30 second promos.

I may stop since I have only watched season 1 so far, but I own 7 seasons. If I catch up and watch them all I may end up buying the rest. I bought the first seven because I got them each for $20 or less.

I think i'll stop.

I didn't realise, but there are a lot of Simpsons episodes I love, and it seems that I have them all now. 8 seasons means 31 DVDs of Simpsons episodes, and I think i've enough to cover me for now.

Does anyone think they'll actually finish? I mean, if these are only coming out two a year, and the show is still running with the 18th season starting soon. At this rate, if the show continues running it will take 7 or 8 more years for them to catch up. DVD's could be dead by then.

I wish they'd speed it up. I mean, do we REALLY need commentaries on every episode?

We're almost out of TV shows to issue on disc already. Seven years from now the well will have been dry for awhile. Fox will be DESPERATE to release ANYTHING. I don't know if DVD (or Blu-Ray or HD-DVD) as we know it will still be around, but whatever software delivery format exists by then will surely be issuing season 18.

I'm just wondering about the packaging. Cardboard boxes for the first five. Plastic heads for the next five. Someone's got to come up with at least four other designs before then. Good luck with that.

DVD isn't going anywhere anytime soon.. even after (or if) one of the HD formats takes off and cements itself.

Easter eggs on season eight - there's gotta be some, right?

I hope you're right. Right now, there are still a whole bunch of shows I want that haven't been released yet. Oh, and as for the topic, I've probably already posted this, but I'm stopping after Season 10. Only two more to go!
