Commentaries, a few deleted scenes and some promos (maybe 15-20 minutes screen time tops?) do not make a decent edition.

However, Fox ALWAYS puts out a kind-of decent first release and then follows up next spring with a 2-disc. ALWAYS...

True, but this is the Simpsons. The season sets always go all out, so I would imagine the same treatment given to the movie's DVD.

At least I hope...

Tell me about it. :roll:

Yep Dan...Simpsons will get the all out treatment internationally in a two-disc set, which will then come to the US next spring.

It's Fox practice, done with all their holiday season releases.

Cool! :)


Also, anyone remember this pic from way back in Season 5? I guess Homer always loved pigs! :D

"Curly, straight, curly, straight, curly, etc.." :lol:

"Homer Goes to College" is one of my faves out the season, mainly because of the nerds! But heh, I never thought about the pig thing. Good thinking, Vi.

Thanks, Dan! :)


I love the nerds too! :P


Marge: [hearing modem noises] Ooh, what's wrong with this phone? it's
making crazy noises.
Nerd 2: [contemptuously] Those "crazy noises" are computer signals.
Nerd 3: Yeah. Some guys at MIT are sending us reasons why Captain
Picard is better than Captain Kirk.
Nerd 1: Hah! They're outta their minds.



I think their names are actually Kirk, Doug and Gary. :wink:

Oh, right! :P


I also used to have a really cool Simpsons comic/paperback ("extravaganza"--like 5 stories) where they played a starring role! :D

Seriously? That sounds cool!

I think I had one or two comic books, but gave them away, since I never read them. Say deal with you?

Yeah, pretty much. I had about 3 or so "graphic novel triple packs" that had like five comics in them. I have like 2 of them somewhere, the other was lost , alas....:P


:wink:

If you go to the humor section of Borders/Barnes and Noble superstores they usually have a ton of Simpsons comic paperbacks. I had one with all of them in b + w "Jail" uniforms escaping a "madhouse". :wink: :roll: (all the paperbacks have random covers that don't particularly relate to the stories inside.)


That was the one that had the nerds. I"m pretty sure you can still find that one. In the story, they team up with Frink! :P

There's also a HILARIOUS scene where they go to Mr. Burns for help/resources and then his three "nephews" (who we've never seen before) who all look like him but smaller, each wearing a baseball cap/shirt in red, green and blue tell him: "There's a buried boat with a sunken treasure! We want to go look for it!" Mr. Burns is like: "Sorry boys, I'm busy with young Gary here." Nephews: "Awww!" all disappointed. :cry:

(Ducktales reference)

Hilarious! So totally random. :lol:

It sure sounds like it! Did the nephews have little humps, like Mr. Burns?

Ironically enough, that's exactly where I see them! They always have sooo many cool Simpson/Garfield/Charlie Brown/ etc, books. Paradise! :)

I don't know about the covers, though; the ones I had, seemed to fit into the nature of the stories.
