The Simpsons: The Complete Twentieth Season

In this the milestone season for the iconic Simpsons family you would think that Fox would dress up the Blu-ray release a little more. There are no special features to speak of and there isn't even a booklet with the episode summaries in it. Pretty bare bones, if you ask me.

That being said, for a show that has been on for 20 years (with varying degrees of excellence) the writers have managed to maintain a high level pretty much throughout. Though there were some low periods after season 10 the writers have once again in season 20 brought the show back up to its previous standards.
