Not bad start, just a couple of things I think you can improve.
Perhaps something like this?

Very nice Buggs, you have come a long way my friend! Please continue with the same format as you have now and possibly wait for Season 2 to end.

If you wish to do a DVD cover for Season 2, then you should be doing one for Season 1 also. I believe CT explained why on one of your WIP.

As for this cover, I feel as if the SPECIAL FEATURES is sort of out of place. Also, I’m not sure I like how you did the black and red for the synopsis. Something is off there also but I can't explain it. I have no suggestion to offer, sorry. Maybe someone else could help you better or if you like it, then that’s what matters.

Agree with chouette.  I also think that having the logos at the top on the spine looks rather silly.  Should swap the logos and the picture.

It's getting better but I feel with such a nice, clean and simple front you should carry this across to the back, at the moment it's all very boxy try and simplify it :)

Yeah....Now that you say it Chou and Sauron, I feel like I can fix a few things before I call this cover quality.....As well as the rest of the things you suggested....This was sort of a what do you think rough draft anyways....Now that I see where my focus should be, and I will simplify my back much more....I will have a updated copy of this cover by tomorrow night with all updated fixes....Hopefully I nail it for you all and its the master copy! Thanks Chou, Sauron, and Vince!  :-o

Much better! Now, the next step is to learn how to work your typography. I'm gonna do a quick sample later when I get home to show you how you can improve this and then you'll be able to compare with what you've done.

I like this version a lot better! The one thing you might want to try is change the font color for “THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” on the front cover to the same army green as Marlon's jacket that you also have as your background at the bottom of your back. It might be a better.

Also, because you changed the color of your NBC logo on the spine, you lost your image and it looks awkward this way. You might want to keep the original logo's color.

A big big improvement, changing the colour from red to green was a great choice.

I would still suggest working on your layout more as all the text looks like it has been crammed into the boxes, you need to give some breathing room around the edges. White space is good space :)

Regarding what chou said about the text on the front, I would leave this grey but reduce the font size and maybe increase the tracking a bit.

Lot of good suggestions here.

I will leave the back to Ark as it needs a lot of work in my opinion, one big thing is the black logos need to go and I'd shift it to BD only, I think using both DVD & BD on this is a mistake, no way you could fit all those discs in this small spine case design.

On the front and spine first you have a large white space on the top of the front, so I'd consider add a bar on the top front and making the spine green, then make the season text white.

You have made a lot of improvements!

Is the title treatment blurry, or is that just the preview?

The font for the Title is Antenna by Font Bureau. Maybe this will help?

Looking forward to the new update!

P.S. I believe an image can be big and still be blurry. Maybe not in this case, but it can. ;)
