I`ll probably buy it, but not until next year and for less than half this price

I love the front cover. I`m also a completist. But come on, full price for Seasons 1-8 is one thing, but for Season 14, where there are only about five episodes that I will want to watch?...No deal.
The writers seemed to think of a witty title first, and then try to match a story later; to increasingly unamusing and unlikely results. I would have posted an episode-by-episode "preview", to make my point - rather than a technically impossible pre-release "review" - but people really don`t like them. It just annoys me a bit when someone will post "This season is so funny, buy it, 5 stars", when if you are actually applying the star rating critically and in line with other Simpsons seasons, this is a 2/3 star season, and simply isn`t worth the money.

I thought you were meaning more the fact that every simpsons DVD is half price in less than a year.

That too. It just seems to me that if the Simpsons is not going to be any funnier than other animated shows, the boxsets shouldn`t cost 10+ more.

While I agree with you, I'd doubt they'd sell it a lower price with a caption 'because the quality is a lot lower from Season 12 onwards.'

I agree - and until they admit the obvious and do just that, I`ll keep my money until next year and get it for 13.99! :)
