5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Part 2 10 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If you bought the first boxset(Year 2 Part 1)you might as well treat yourself and buy this second boxset so to complete the season.
This set is just as good as the first,and the box the videos come in is good because it follows on from the first.
There are 11 episodes in this boxset just like the last set and the best IMO are "The Way We Was","Lisa's Substitute" and "3 Men and a comic Book".
The episode on the tapes are
1.The Way We Was/2.Homer Vs. Lisa and the 8th commandment/3.Bart's Dog Gets an F/4.Principal Charming/5.Oh bother where art thou?/6.Old Money/7.Brush with Greatness/8.Lisa's Substitute/9.The Way of the Simpsons/10.3 men and a comic book/11.Blood feud

5.0 out of 5 stars The following tale of alien encounters is true. 14 Mar 2000
Format:VHS Tape
"Secrets and Lies" could be an alternative title for this Simpsons collection, since the mysteries that aren't secret all turn out to be fakes! In 'The Springfield Files', Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny play the X-Files agents Scully and Mulder, investigating Homer's claim of seeing aliens in the woods (after 10 beers!). In 'Homer the Great', Homer is chosen to be the leader of a secret Mason-type cult. 'Lisa the Iconoclast' shows Lisa discovering that the town's founder (Jebediah Springfield) was really a cutthroat pirate, and in 'Homer Badman' the serious issue of sexual harassment is tackled (Homer didn't really do it).
My favourite quote is from 'The Springfield Files', where Leonard Nimoy bizarrely introduces the episode: "I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by 'true', I mean 'false'. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is... 'No'"

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutly Superb! 29 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Some of the best episodes and moments come of the whole series come from the second season of The Simpsons. Why who could forget: Blinky, the three eyed fish ('Two Cars in Every Garage...'), Homer getting hair ('Simpson and Delilah'), the very first Treehouse of Horror episode, Homer jumping Springfield Gorge ('Bart the Daredevil'), the non-violent Itchy & Scratchy ('Itchy & Scratchy & Marge'), or when Homer thinks he has only 24 hours to live ('1 Fish, 2 Fish, Blowfish, Bluefish')? All of them are classics, and they're all here on video, uncut, and in the order they were originally made! If you haven't got this yet, by it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eeeexcellent..... 10 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is BRILLIANT. One of the reasons is that there are no 'early episodes'. I don't like these because they are fuzzy, badly animated and often lack humour. But these... ~Last Temptation of Homer~ Doubtless you've seen-but it's brilliant. Homer falls in love with a female version of him. Can he resist temptation when they are sent together to Capital City for a convention? ~New Kid On The Block~ Best episode ever; Bart falls in love with a new neighbour, and Homer sues the Frying Dutchman because their 'all you can eat' policy didn't actually let him have 'all you can eat'...brilliant stuff. ~Bart After Dark~ Rarely ever shown on TV, this one sees Bart damage a statue in a huge house while Marge and Lisa are away. Homer makes Bart work off the damage-and soon discovers Bart is working in a burlesque house [brothel]! ~Lisa's Rival~ Lisa has a rival, but the subplot outshadows it. Homer tries to make a fortune from a truckload of sugar. All in all, brilliant. *****/***** :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Quartet Of Simpsons Classics 1 Sep 2005
By Judy G
Format:VHS Tape
Though the cover can be highly offputting, the episodes are nothing like seeing Homer on a chair in his underwear as a slimy slice of pizza drips from his hand.
The Last Temptation Of Homer I'm sure many have seen before. It still makes you laugh to watch it again and again. Seeing Homer drive backwards in to a large tub of water, meeting some rather amusing fish that like to chant "Homer lives Mindy" is just one example of the laughs that come from this episode.
The New Kid On The Block is another classic. Bart has his first crush. Notice how, no matter what number of crushes a Simpson has had in previous episodes, it's always their first in a new one? Watch as Bart takes his first bath, lets Lisa choose dinner for the first time, and says "I fell on my bottom" as a hopeful chat up line. This episode, to put it as the adverts do, will leave you howling with excitement. Waiting for the next to begin.
Bart After Dark is yet another hilarious installment, aren't they all? Watch Lisa and Marge scrub rocks with toothbrushes as Bart watches woman dance infront of men who gape at their revealing clothes in "the witches house". Even the song near the end is really catchy, despite some awful voices (they're okay really).
Lastly, Lisa's Rival. Meet Alison.
Lisa: She's smarter, younger and a better sax player than me. Oh, I feel so average.
Marge really does try her best to solve by telling Lisa she'll always be No.1 to her but Bart has to ruin that by walking by shouting "Hello, first born within earshot!"
Marge: I meant my No.1 girl
(Maggie tugs at Marge's dress)
Marge: Oh brother
This is a must buy video/DVD. There are just two problems. There are not enough episodes and most of them are on the seasons that are out. But for those that want some of the best of the seasons, this is the best for you.
