I would move the episodes down just a tad, seems there is some uneven open space near the bottom.

Other than that its beautiful, I love how you matched the font!

What program do you use to do the menus? I haven't figured out how to just have text for the menus. All my menus have a thumbnail with the text title.

That is might sweet looking. I'm with Mark, I'd move the text down and around abit to balance it. But that's minor. Just awesome looking.

I would remove the underline from Volume 1, but it looks even now

Again....Great work!

I have nothing negative to say at all. I see nothing to improve on.
Excellent.

daaamn. thats clean.. i need to learn how to make menus in photoshop.. I noticed people that are on here name things by volume 1 instead of like say season 1 disc 1 or whatever. Why is it that people choose volume 1,2,3 etc over season and disc 1,2,3 etc

It looks cleaner is the simple answer. Season 1 Disc 1, Season 1 Disc 2, Season 2 Disc 1, Season 2 Disc 2 tends to just look wordy if you are making a large set that spans say 10-25 DVD's.

Plus in some cases the episodes are in "storyline" order which may throw off their season distinction so it would not be correct to say Season 1 Disc 1 if it contained a Season 2 episode.

Honestly I've never really thought about calling it a volume vs season 1 disc 1...Sometimes on other sets I have used the season 1 disc 1 lable or season 1 volume 1 I do that as well...I guess it depends on what you want to do.

I never wrote the first disc to a finale DVD, it sitting on my hard drive. but Im missing last weeks episodes, as it didnt re-air this morning. If the show doesnt return then Ill probably just cancle the whole project. Otherwise I was going to do a cover and even disc art.
