  • Now available in non-prescription strength.
It's still in the eco-friendly accordion style pack, but they cut out a small semicircle that exposes the DVD for easier gripping.  You don't have to dig underneath and risk tearing the sleeve.  It's much easier.

Just got mine in the mail today. I love trying to pick out the parts that were cut out for the tv edit.
A lot of people seem to think the quality dropped by this season, but I think it's still as good as ever. They didn't lose me for another couple seasons.
I remember watching A Tale of Two Springfields back when it originally aired, and eventually checked to see if Whatbadgerseat.com was a real website, and it used to be. It still exists, but not on its own http://www.thesimpsons.com/badgers/index.htm

You know what the most eco-friendly DVD packaging of all is?  The kind that I keep on my shelf and don't toss in the landfill because it doesn't completely suck ass.

While this packaging is an improvement over the previous one, it still means that I am sliding the disk against cardboard. HELLO?! Anybody there? Think, McFly! Think!

Eco-friendly packaging doesn't have to mean stupid and damaging to the disks. It's poorly thought out crap like this that give eco-friendly stuff a bad name.

While I found this one much better than the last, I still printed my own cover and put them in a 4-pack amaray case.  You know, with holders that keep the discs from being scratched.

Beautiful art on the case; shame it's in a box in storage.  Wake up, guys.
I agree on the case art. I have liked the artwork on all these, and will continue to get them, but I really do have to believe there is a better way to do the design. Perhaps with a small plastic piece in the center just to hold the disk in, the rest being cardboard?
