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.
