Season 20 DVD released, lacks special features

Simpsons News — Posted 16 Jan, 2010 by DisgruntledGoat

The Simpsons Season 20 was released this week (Jan 12th) on DVD and Blu-ray, to a highly critical reception by fans. Previous Simpsons DVDs have been loaded with special features, including commentary for every episode, deleted scenes and various promos. This set, however, features almost nothing and has only two stars on

This DVD/Blu-ray set is very bare bones...
In addition to the 21 episodes (which are far from the best the show has done), is a "sneak peek" for the Simpsons documentary, The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special, In 3-D! On Ice! - except the documentary aired in full on Fox last Sunday.

There was also supposed to be an updated Simpsons character poster included, but we've seen loads of reports that the poster is not included. The final "special feature" is menus hand-drawn by Matt Groening himself. Unfortunately, they purely consist of a white line drawing doodle on a black background.

Since a Season 13 complete set is also in the works (with commentary etc), it is very likely that in a few years they will release a proper Season 20 set with all the usual features. If you still need (un)convincing, Adam over at the Simpsons Channel has published a short article, Ten Reasons To NOT Buy This Set.
