You mean the only English Maggie site - I've created a (admittedly small) German Maggie site together with Pascal Frey: http://www.lisasimpson-net.de/maggie/ :maggie:

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next season box, although it won't be released before Christmas in Germany (the season 7 box is out just for a few days now), and I will buy the regular box instead of that head (although Maggie looks much better than Homer - god, I hate that box, and no other is available here  >:( ).

Yes! I've been waiting for a Kelsey commentary for so long!  ;D

Nice to see they've also got Alex Rocco, Dave Thomas and John Waters to come in as well for commentaries.  :)

I knew "And Maggie Makes Three" was used somewhere! I'll be sure to provide a link exchange to it on my English counterpart. ;)

August 15?  Why does that sound so late?

WOOO!  ;D

...I just realized I haven't listened to any Simpsons commentary since season 2.  I'm so behind.

Finally Grammar does a commentary. I can't wait, I'll most likely get a box, but the head is tempting!

This is going to seem like a silly question, but does anyone know when the commentary tracks for the DVD sessions are recorded?  I remember that the commentary for "A Star is Burns" was no earlier than April 2005 and another (it escapes me right now) places itself in February, but is that as exact as is possible to narrow it down to?

Finally. Been waiting for the good news for this box set for a while now. And I have to admit I'm also a bit excited about Kelsey Grammer doing a commentary; sounds excellent.

Well, considering Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein were at NoHomers answering questions and getting feedback from fans as to what they'd like to hear on the commentaries for Season 8 at the end of last year/start of this year, the commentaries were probably started February or so and finished just last month I'd guess. Usually as soon as the commentaries are all done, they'll release the full list of them.

August?  Phooey, I was hoping to see/get it a lot sooner than that!  Oh, well.  Can't complain too much, really.  Looking forward to it!  A few of my favorite episodes, and Kelsey Grammar on commentary for one to boot?  Heck yes.

Well, this is the only head box I'd buy and Season 9 is the last DVD set I'm buying.
