I haven't seen the promo since I don't watch tv that much at school. Thanks for posting it though. It is high quality animation, definately a fan of this ad. ^.^ Thanks for posting it. Too bad gas prices are so high, I guess I'll have to wait to go and get to see this attraction in person.

I know, I can so relate. Well, distance is also a factor. From what I've been hearing, the ride sounds beyond excellent. Gosh this is torture! ;)

I know I really want to see this. I also want to go to FL soon b/c I haven't been there in a long time.

Just a heads up, seasons 1-10 will be on sale for $16.99 at Best Buy starting June 29 through July 5th. It's a fantastic deal, which is why I thought I should bring it up here for those missing any. :)

Yeah, BB will probably have both versions of season six, although I've heard the "head" is more rare now. Go figure. I hated the Homer head, but it's a cool little memorabilia. :)

Finally a release date for season 11!! Can't wait for the cover art and bonus material info! Yes, I'm still exited, even if it is my least favorite season. ;)

Possible cover art?

I hope not, because that's terrible! :x It's from an Australian site that has it up for pre-order. I seriously hope they change it.

Awe, this Sundays episode had a dedication at the end for Paul Newman. Thought that was sweet and a nice touch. Thought the episode was pretty good, but liked the season premiere a lot more. Probably one of the funniest in recent years.

BTW, for this years Halloween special, one of the segments is going to spoof It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! I seriously can't wait to see how it's done.

-- I went on that Simpson's Ride Orlando Florida. It was a blast.

-- Do any of you know if the Simpson's Season will be coming to blu ray?

Nothing is confirmed, but season 1 is rumored for a Blu-ray release.

There's also hope that starting with season 13, they'll have both SD and BD versions optional. I'll personally love if that became a reality, since that's when Jean takes over and the show switches to digital ink and paint - actually I think that was season 14, but still. True I love the old cell animation more, but it was inevitable and those seasons will benefit more from Blu-ray.

Simpsons on BD? Really?

I can't really see people buying this stuff like that again. But that's just me. Those early Simpsons looked pretty rough coming off composite BetaSP masters like they did. I'm surprised they'd go back and master all these again, but I guess it's a way to future proof the library for further syndication.

I just wouldn't have thought there was much money double format dipping on long-running series at this point anyway. Who knows, maybe it'll be a groundbreaker?
