Okay, we have a bit of major news for you today and it’s damn depressing...

Al Jean, who is the producer of The Simpsons, has just tweeted that Fox has no plans to release more seasons of The Simpsons on DVD (no word yet on Blu-ray, but it’s possible this includes all physical disc formats). [Late Update: Yes, that means Blu-ray too.] Jean apparently holds out hope of a possible Complete Series set on DVD one day, when the show is done, but frankly I’m not sure we here at The Bits do. [Late Update: We don’t.] What with their MIA Blu-ray plans for The Abyss and True Lies, not to mention The X-Files: The Complete Series, Buffy: The Complete Series, and 24: The Complete Series, just to name a few, it’s getting harder and harder not to look at Fox as THE studio that’s leading the charge to kill physical media completely.  [Read on here…]

We’ve got two more Blu-ray reviews for you today: Tim’s thoughts on Criterion’s new The Beatles: A Hard Day’s Night as well as Magnolia’s Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic. Both are worth your time.
