It makes good business sense to release The Complete 20th Season in advance of seasons 13 to 19. When an animated series ties (and has now surpassed) Gunsmoke as prime time's longest running show, attention must be paid (and exploited). But unlike previous sets, there are none of the extras Simpsonites have come to expect save for a less-than-4-minute ""sneak peek"" at Morgan Spurlock's excellent 20th-anniversary special. In trying to come up with just the right clever thing to say about that, one must look, as with everything in life, to an episode of The Simpsons, the one in which Bart discards a Where's Waldo book that eschews the usual crowd scenes for a single life-size illustration of Waldo. ""Man,"" Bart remarks, ""He's not even trying anymore."" --Donald Liebenson

Fox is screwing it's fanbase over with this BS "Complete Season 20" set. If you're in the USA, the only real preview is of the "Simpsons 20th Anniversery Special" that aired two days BEFORE the set was actually released! Furthermore, there are no commentaries, no deleted scenes, or any other bonus material that graced the previous DVD sets. Also, IMO, this set uses the silly cardboard accordian design which makes taking out the discs a chore.
--And it's still priced as much as the other DVD sets when they were released. To quote Edna: "HA!"
Whether or not you feel the Simpsons is as good as it used to be, this set is a sham. For a set that supposed to ring in two decades of one of the greatest comedies of all time, you'd think someone other than the potential buyers might have cared, and if you're buying this as a gift, RESIST! The more people who close their wallets to this will mean a faster release of the real Season 20 set and hopefully an 'extended cut' of the Anniversery Special.
Then our dreams were shattered. We opened the package and put it in the DVD player. First, it has the same awful disc-scratching packaging as seasons 11 and 12. Second, it had ZERO (1-12 had lots) extras. And no, I don't count the teaser clip of the 20th anniversary special a feature. Third, it was obviously rushed to market to capitalize on the 20th anniversary documentary.
I will not be buying *THIS* version of Season 20. I will continue to buy 13-20 in the order they are released. I'm 100% positive they will re-release this with a ton of extras when they do it in the proper order. If all future releases are as shoddy and light on extras as this one, I won't be buying any more. :(
