1.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT WHAT WE WANT!!!!!!!!!!!, September 5, 2003
This review is from: The Simpsons - Treehouse of Horror (DVD)
Let me start off by saying that I am just about as big a Simpsons fan as they come, but this does not make sense. Fox is wasting their time making cheezy dvd's like this instead of giving us the good stuff, the full seasons. (And I use good stuff lightly. The third season, which took a year to come out, is pretty light on special features and the menus are very simplistic. Seems to me they could have thrown that together in a couple of months.)
Just to clarify, I don't have a problem with the full season dvd's being sparse. I have all of the episodes on tape, but, as time goes on, the picture quality becomes less than desireable. I just want a perfect, uncut copy of the episodes to watch whenever I want. Hell, I don't care if they give us four dvd's with only the episodes on them, just don't take a year every time you do it. They should be cranking out at least three a year. Dvd will be extinct before all of the seasons see the light of day.
Back to the task at hand, I'll admit that I am a sucker who bought this dvd. Let's face it, Treehouse V probably won't be out until 2006 sometime and I can't stand the way that the station around here has been hacking the episodes in syndication. Plus I figured the "featurette" with Kang and Kodos would be worth a laugh. Unfortunately, the "featurette" was just a summary of clips from the Treehouse episodes. So, basically, the dvd has nothing new for Simpson fans. As the seasons are released, you will have the exact same thing.
I don't know how many people have read this far, but I think we need to hit Fox in their wallets before they start listening to us. We should all boycott the upcoming "Christmas with the Simpsons" Dvd. As long as we keep forking out $10 each time they release a dvd with nothing more than what we will pay $40 for later, they will keep ripping us off.

"Dvd will be extinct before all of the seasons see the light of day."

With Blu-Ray now here, that isn't far from the truth.

I wish they would just release all the seasons, at least in SD, and then let people buy them as their individual budgets allow. Season 1 is still available so I can't see there being a need to rush and get them all at the moment of release, but I would love to be able to pick up 3 seasons a year.
