    I recieved my copy of The Simpsons Season 6 from Movietyme today a whole 11 days before release and the new style packaging is certainly different.

    I am not really good at describing things so took some shots of the set...

    Inside the Case

    The Disc Case

    I know that when the packaging was first announced people complained that it wouldnt match the Season 1-5 packaging, well for them there is good news in the form of a leaflet inside the set which states the following...

    For all those that fear change...

    For all those anal-retentive nerds who like their DVD boxes to line up perfectly on the shelf...

    For those who dislike storing their digital media inside a hollowed-out human head, have we got a deal for you:

    Just call 1-800-223-2369 for a very derivative, old-style, just-like-before box with almost nothing new or creative to annoy or terrify you. Enjoy!

    Yeah i had a laugh when i read that. It different the packageing but it feels really cheaply made i would rather have the matching if im honest. Just watched a few and the transfer on the first disc anyway isnt very good. I tried it on variuos dvd players and tvs and it comes across blockie and not as good as last season release. Maybe its just the first disc i hope it is.

    Got mine this morning and its nasty and cheap very, very disappointed.

    I doubt you'll get a package exchange though as such things only apply in the states :(

    Thats very very sad if the quality is the same as "homer". The simpsons boxsets have gone from "hero to zero". :thumbsdow

    Has anyone applied for the old-style, just-like before box yet, and if so what is it like? Will it make-up for the disaster that appears to be the new format for seasons 6-10?

    I think they look great. I'm not too bothered if they don't match up. I hope this packaging will apply for R2 too!

    Interestingly Sky one is (right now) showing Homer Vs the city of New York - the one where Homers car is illegally parked between the twin towers.

    Those new packages look really cheap.

    I'm importing an LCD TV from the States soon so I'll probably call that number, order a replacement and have my mail forwarding agent throw it into the box.

    All your "Only in America" problems solved forever :)

    Problem is, it probably isn't worth the $35 signup fee and $15 monthly fee unless you import lots of stuff!

    It was the fairly heavily edited post-Sept 11th version. I wonder if the DVD version will be edited.

    Considering the DVD isnt officially released for over another week I dont think it would be wise to call the number just yet and there is no way for anyone to have got the old style packaging set yet as like I said, no one should really even have the standard release.

    Oh dear, that doesn’t sound too good. I hope they improve the packaging for the R2 releases…
