The last of the great seasons! I killed a couple hours with season 6 last night and had a howling good time re-visiting the best Halloween special ever (The Shinning), the Gummi Venus DeMilo, the pool episode, the comet episode, the Stonecutters, the sex tonic episode, the film festival, Lisa's wedding, and of course Bart vs. Australia, etc. Deleted scenes, commentary, alternate languages--Dolby Surround. Gotta love it!

One note-the new packaging SUCKS ASS. It opens vertically (and not particularly well), and the DVDs are in a horizontally arranged folder. Awkward, asinine packaging. BUT, there's a slip of paper in the box with an 800 number to call for alternative packaging like the other seasons' boxes.
