And So It Continues! Too Bad About the Picture Quality Thoug

"Some of the best ever episodes of "The Simpsons" are included here as the reason this entire franchise has been so successful is for me because of the intelligent script and the genius of James L Brooks. The drawings of the characters are naturally still raw as they are not the finished product that we have become used to over the years but this is acceptable given the quality of the gags and the great story-telling. These episodes though have been transferred from a poor videotape master as we frequently get the shimmering, crooked lines that you get on a bad video when the tape sticks to the playing magnetic head of the player and this is very evident in every episode which took away a great deal from my overall enjoyment of the dvds. I don't remember seeing these when they were screened on tv and so it's unfortunate that for a "Collector's Edition" that we should get such poor dvd picture quality transfer although I have to say the sound quality on Dolby 5.1 surround is pretty good.
Overall, great episodes, sound quality but poor picture quality transfer from what appears to be a videotape with all its inherent limitations."
