Well... I didn't know, and by all means shouldn't know, that bras got uncomfortable after a while, I obviously just interpreted it as a hint to her sexuality. I don't know how I got to that exactly, she just seemed eager to get her bra off after she said "girls night in".

It's strictly a comfort thing.  It's the female equivalent of Homer unbuttoning his pants when he gets home.

I suck at, uh, understanding jokes about bras...

The funny part was the fact that she used the bolt cutters to do it.

Just because Matt created both shows, doesn't mean he'll be spending any time on them. He has writers and directers working on both shows, so that he can live it up in his mansion.

You're selling Groening far, far short.  He's still involved, and in fact he's much more involved with The Simpsons now that Futurama's over.  He still supervises the show, makes decisions about it, etc.  Yes, he's not the guy running the show at this point, but he's still integral to it, and doesn't just live up in his mansion and show up once a month.  And he's apparently very heavily involved with the movie.

And it sure is nice of you that you're out there curing diseases instead of lazily posting on a cartoon message board everyday.  Oh wait.

Anyway, to try to answer that question....well, who knows, but I'd assume he'd be very involved with both.  Which he spends more time on could depend on what stage of production each one of the movies happened to be in at any given point.

I know you were joking, but the difference between your registrtation dates really brings that "zinger" down. Also, DotheBartman DID use the word "apparentally" when describing Groening's involvement with the movie.

DotheBartman has been here only 1 year more than I have.

And it was a joke, so you didn't have to put so much thought into it.

Plus him saying "apparently" makes it even worse.

News articles, explainations of his role from other people on the show (throughout the years, including recent years) in commentaries and interviews, posts from RogerMyersIII (if you don't know, he has a position close to the show) at NHC....its not too hard to know or figure out, at least for someone like me that tracks that sort of thing.  A lot of its just common knowledge even, as he's always supervised the show with Brooks and they've both always made some decisions (above the showrunner) about certain things related to the show, including the actual hiring/selecting of showrunners.  And yes, I used the word "apparently" because its just based on my understanding of his involvement in the movie, which itself is based on various articles and Roger postings.

I wasn't trying to claim that I'm being productive, or any more so then you (unlike Beamer, I didn't even look at the join dates or post counts).  However, I was pointing out the irony of your post considering that you're not exactly going out there curing cancer.  You can't attack Groening for being lazy (which he isn't, he just doesn't happen to be the "day to day" guy running the show at this point) when you're spending your time posting on a message board.

I don't hate you or anything Lrrr... but I find that all of DtB's posts are insightful and entertaining.  He obviously goes out of his way to keep track of this kind of stuff, and I appreciate it fully that he spends the time on this message board to explain from his point of view, what he's been witness to and had the opportunity of reading.  I don't keep track of every single simpsons event, so it makes it a little easier when someone who does explains what has actually been going on.  He's also careful to classify what he knows and what he believes to actually be the case, which points out the things that are completely fact.  Hence, him using the qualifier "apparently" doesn't mean that he knows it beyond any doubt for a fact, but that he's made a very educated guess that this is the case.  I'm just saying that just about everything DtB has said has been spot on, and that I take his word when it pertains to anything of this nature as Truth.

Obviously? I don't consider anything DtB has said as being true. He hasn't given any sources, or links to prove what he said as being more than mere garbage.

Heh....

Well first off, thanks for the compliments Winna.

Lrrr my friend, I can certainly link to every single RogerMyers post (which I realize equates to "some guy on a message board", but hey, he's always reliable), news article, and SNPP update if you really want to.  A lot of the stuff I post is essentially common knowledge (among Simpsons 'net nerds, that is) or just what I've accumulated in my own mind from all the news articles I've read over the years and the SNPP updates, etc.  If  Futurama was still on the air, and one of us here who had a solid reputation at some other board posted Futurama episode plots at that board, I would doubt the members of that board would complain.  Same would now go with one of us mentioning the recent talk of Futurama movies.  That's more far-fetched and wierd sounding then anything I've posted here about The Simpsons, but in that situation most people would trust us on it.  They might ask for a link, sure (and in this thread, I can certainly do that if people want me to, when it's something I can link anyway), but they would trust us.

I don't even honestly know why you're upset with me....it's not like I'm even pretending to be some super-secret source or anything.  I get stuff from news articles I read and reliable web-sites (like SNPP, and NHC when its from the right people), and then I post it here if people ask or if there's some other reason to.  I don't think I've ever posted anything that wasn't at least mostly accurate (I'll allow some leniance in the event of, say, an episode description that's slightly off from the way an episode airs, stuff like that), based on where I get it from.  What exactly has led you to believe that I'm just making stuff up?

Basically, most if not all of the stuff I post here is stuff you could easily get yourself.  I think what Winna meant is that he usually doesn't look at that stuff regularly, so it's convenient for him to be able to read it here instead.

Lrrr, just give it a rest and accept the facts. I don't agree with all of his opinions at times, but at the end of the day, DotheBartman is a quality poster here, and trustworthy when it comes to Simpsons information. I've got nothing against you, Lrrrr, but all you've seemed to be doing the past few months in Simpsons threads is attacking people, and it's beginning to get quite embarassing, really.

If I remember right, there's only one....an extra commentary for the "Sweet Seymour Skinner's...." animatic where they talk about an earthquake that happened around the time they made that episode.  I think the official way to get it is to highlight the "100th Episode" logo on the Animation Showcase page, but of course you can also just hit the audio button a couple times until you get it.

You play the commentary, and when it gets to the scene with James Taylor, an ear or something appears and you click enter. I'm not too sure myself, I haven't tried to access it, but to my understanding, that's how it works.

Yeah it's important to select the commentary from the menu. and then press enter when the ear Icon appears, It comes quite far into the episode as well.

Finally some season six artwork....BUT, before you scroll down, keep in mind you may be disapointed.....



Honestly, I don't know what happened here.  Why exactly did they abandon the previous design concept for this?  It doesn't look as "classy" IMO, plus it creates pretty jarring disconinuity with the previous five sets.  The Futurama sets all having slightly different designs was one thing....they still fit together fairly well.  But....wow.

(That said, I guess this could be a "special" choice thing, and that there might be a normal one as well....but I'm not getting my hopes up).

Buh? That... sucks.  I thought The Simpsons DVDs had one of the best coverart schemes going, with a very recognizable and unique design for each one within the theme... and now this.. Yikes. Even the little differences on the Futurama DVD cases bug me (I really like my sets of things to be consistent, I don't know why). That doesn't even look like it'll sit well on the shelf. I say again... Buh?

Apparently seasons 7-10 are going to be shaped like the heads of the other family members. Maybe they plan to change the design every five seasons.

Yeah, I think that's the assumption for now, though we'll see what they do in a few years with S11.

Anyway, a couple people on NHC pointed out that, from the shape of the box (which on it's own would be really strange as a houser of dvd discs) seems like it might in case house a smaller case within.  Perhaps inside is a normal case matching the previous ones?  We'll see.  Now that the cover art is out I imagine we'll see a press release for the set in the next few days (with details about special features and all that), so perhaps we'll see some sort of explanation for the package as well.

I liked the "couch gag" covers seen in Seasons 1-5. With the couch gags, we could've seen Bender, Leela, Fry or any of the crew on one of the covers. Imagine a Simpsons cover kinda like Season 2's but instead of trading heads, they have heads of Futurama characters, or the bodies of them, though that whole idea is kinda a stretch. This just doesn't seem right. And who next? We've got Season 6-Homer and then Seasons 7-10 with Marge, Bart, Lisa, or Maggie. The thing is, wouldn't Marge or Maggie look a little out of it as a Season DVD cover? And, also, what about the 10th Season's cover? I don't think they'd do Grampa Simpson, so who would it be? I just hope that this isn't the final design or they know what they're doing with the next seasons' covers.

Futurama heads would have been pretty much impossible....I agree it might have been cool, but since Futurama is a different show(and one already on dvd) it would have created confusion if they'd put anything Futurama on the front.  Maybe some art on the inside could have worked though.

No idea how they'll do Marge, probably just have a small version of the hair (ala the Marge pez dispenser, if you've ever seen that).  Don't worry though, for 7-10 at least it's just going to be family members.  I think your mental counting must have been a bit off (6-10 is five sets, and there's five family members; 10 will be which ever of the five characters is left)

A lot of people are suggesting that this really might just be a front-over cover (one NHC member notes that it has no visible crease or hinge on the side to even open it, suggesting that this might just be a front cover) or a special case.  God I hope so....otherwise I just wouldn't understand the logic behind this.

Yeah, I got my counting off. Thanks for the correction.

Yeah, the whole "Futurama" idea is a little out there. I thought people would get confused also, seeing a Season 8 DVD with Futurama heads on it, when they can't find a DVD of Futurama with the season numbers 5, 6, or 7 on it. Just another one of those Futurama fan fantasies.

This looks like a damn kids toy! Maybe Fox should lay off the Macky D's, playing with their Happy Meal toys. Obviously the poor diet and tacky toys has gone to their heads! Please say this is a horrible dream, and the real box is inside. Then I can disgard that tacky coffin of a case and burry it in the garden where it belongs...

Season 6 of all Seasons, my favorite Season, why oh why cruel cruel world? This should have been Season 11's case as a joke, it would have been the most funny thing about it...

I hope they don't do that, but I do think they should change the way it is now. I don't like the folding.

They should have it like the Futurama DVDs, but still include a booklet.
