I held off on posting this yesterday because it’s a rumor I really didn’t want to be true, but Simpsons Channel says it’s happening (there’s already box art) so I guess it’s time to move on to Stage 2: Anger. Season fucking 20 is heading to an optical drive near you this year, as in before Christmas. And just a few months after I thought I was done with 20 for a long time. Anyway, they’re using the fact that some of Season 20 was broadcast in HD as an excuse to release this simultaneously on both DVD and Blu-ray.
Hey, I think I just skipped Fear and went straight to Bargaining. Check this out: FOX is passing over Seasons 13-19, right? And they’ve got to know that getting a show out on home video before it goes off the air forever is a profitable move, right? Strike while your iron is hot, and all that. So maybe they’ve got an end date in mind for Zombie Simpsons (please!) and they’re speeding things up to try and get as many seasons out as possible before they pull the plug and start broadcasting Seth MacFarlane Reads the Phonebook at 8:00pm on Sundays.
Or they just want to start selling shit on Blu-ray. Hmmm, maybe I’m still in Stage 1.
