THE SIMPSONS Season 17 Hits Blu-ray and DVD...

While THE SIMPSONS is currently airing it's 26th season on FOX, the Blu-ray and DVD releases are still catching up. This week, the proper home video edition of The Complete Seventeenth Season has arrived, bringing with it 22 episodes from the 2005 run. To mark the release, the folks at 20th Century Fox have set free a few memes and gifs, because... why not? Sideshow Bob is always appreciated.

It’s time to recast Jack Bauer. For nine seasons Kiefer Sutherland has portrayed Bauer perfectly. He has infused the character with heart and a determination that allowed him to inhabit this tragic character better than anyone could have foreseen. It's his career-defining role. One that he will be remembered for, and one that I hope he is truly proud of.

Watching the new Blu-ray release of THE SIMPSONS: THE SIXTEENTH SEASON (courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment), it was an experience to see these nearly decade-old episodes (it's the 2004-2005 season) looking brand-new, and actually... some of them were new to me.

If you're reading this, it is my duty to make it known that you are reading a historic blog. Despite it being a common feature throughout the vast realm of cyberspace, I have never done a "Throwback Thursday." This is my first... and it's about that time when I went to PRISON. Actually, if we're being honest, I should admit that I've been to prison more than once.
