Better than I remembered - DVD still has problems
on November 6, 2009
I've bought all the Simpsons seasons on DVD so far and was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked the episodes from the season overall more than I had the last couple of seasons. It may have helped that I was seeing some of these for the first time, since my weekly watching had become sporadic by this point.
However, the packaging has changed again and is more annoying than usual. Do they not test these thing with children or something? And the DVD menus are just as bad as ever. To their credit, the creators are still doing commentaries for every episode (thank you!) but getting the commentary to play WITH SUBTITLES is a ridiculous chore. You STILL can't simply turn on subtitles using the Subtitles button on your remote, and the menu selection for it is STILL buried several levels deep. You have to go into an episode, in the language setting, into the subtitle setting, and then select. Come on, guys; fix it!
