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 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 All of them are classics, and they're all here on video, uncut, and in the order they were originally made!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 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 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. *****/***** :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Simpsons disc collection set 9 Mar 2007
I bought these for my nephew who's now the same age as Bart, 10. They're set aside for christmas, but I had a watch of them myself. Love Most of the episodes, especially Marge Be Not Proud where Bart shop lifts Bone Storm, Lisa The Iconalist and the X Files one (Bart frightening Homer dressed as an alien "I'm the thing from Uranus."). Not to mention Mayored To The Mob with Homer training to be a bodyguard. Great value 12 episodes on 3 discs, and worth grabbing to give as a gift to some one keen on the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bent my Wookie! 13 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
For a family show, The Simpsons manages to cover some risqué ground, as this collection proves! "The Last Temptation of Homer" sees Homer tempted by a sexy new female worker at the nuclear plant (who sounds rather like Michelle Pfeiffer). "Bart After Dark" tells the tale of Bart's accidental employment at a 'burlesque house' (should that read 'brothel'?) which the town's men are keeping under their hats. In "New Kid on the Block" Bart falls in love with his tomboyish new next-door neighbours (Darleen from 'Roseanne'), and "Lisa's Rival" is the odd-episode-out, really dealing with friendship rather than love - in this case, the ultra-competitive rivalry between Lisa and a new genius-girl in her class (Winona Ryder as Alison Taylor). 'Lisa's Rival' features Ralph (my favourite character) quite prominently, and he is as wonderful as ever - when Lisa's class are asked to produce dioramas, Lisa and Alison compete to produce incredibly realistic miniature scenes, while Ralph's entry consists of several Star Wars action figures, still in their boxes! On his way home with Lisa, he falls over and moans "I bent my Wookie!".
