From Amazon.co.uk

Another series of everyone’s favourite family, another collection of cracking episodes, and with 25 episodes to choose from, including some of the very best ever, you’re a little spoiled for choice.

First aired back in the mid-nineties, the show had really hit its stride following a massively successful fifth series and this series marks a particularly popular period in the show’s history, with celebrity interest bringing a gamut of guest appearances. So, we see Winona Rider in ‘Lisa’s Rival’, Kelsey Grammar in ‘Sideshow Bob Roberts’ Meryl Streep in ‘Bart’s Girlfriend’ and Mel Brooks and Susan Sarandan in ‘Homer vs. Patty and Selma’. But perhaps the most notable, certainly the most amusing, guest vocal is offered by Patrick Stewart in the barnstormingly funny ‘Homer The Great’, which also features one of the funniest Simpsons’ songs ever--‘The Stonecutters Song’.

Other highlights include Bart vs. Australia (‘Hey, I think I hear a dingo eating your baby!’), Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy, in which Homer and Grampa Simpson attempt to sell their homemade viagra-like revitalising tonic to the world, and Two Dozen and One Greyhounds, featuring the second of the great Simpsons’ songs to appear here--‘See My Vest’.

And to top it all off, there’s part one of the only ever Simpsons two-parter, ‘Who Shot Mr. Burns’. The two-parter prompted months of speculation over in the US when first aired and remains an expertly executed slice of Simpsons’ history.

This is The Simpsons on top form. Guest appearances, wonderful animation, tongue in cheek humour and the usual abundance of belly laughs, together with a great selection of extras--it’s another great collection.--Mark Oakley

5.0 out of 5 stars The Peak of The Show - 1994 to 1995 31 Dec 2009
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Simpsons was, quite simply, at its best between 1994 and 1995 after half a decade of character development. As such, Season 6 ran through both of these years with 25 fantastic episodes - not a single one you would want to skip. I feel that Seasons 5 to 7 are the best simply because after trial and error, the series had found its best mix of humour and emotions, being neither too "wacky" nor too dark. The result is a Season that can be related to by all the family with perfect story telling and patient scenes - two elements that have clearly been lost from the latest episodes.

This was also a time when The Simpsons had no-one else to compete against; as such, the series was at its most original. Looking again at the series now, the show has lost all character because it feels the need to rival other shows like 'Family Guy', which are far, far more fast paced and focussed on current affairs.

Season 6's highlights for me personally, and probably the best ever Simpsons episodes are the following:

"Bart of Darkness" (No. 1)
One of the great 'summer' episodes featuring an issue that would have us all miserable... Bart breaks his leg and as such, cannot use the pool Homer has constructed in the back yard (after building a Barn House initially by mistake!) Aside from the countless brilliant gags, this episode features one very memorable scene in which Ned reveals how he never murdered his family, followed with "that" scream and Homers laughable detective speech! The first of a bunch of great summer episodes with the typical competition element as Martin builds a bigger, better pool.

"Treehouse of Horror 5" (No. 6)
The original Treehouse of Horrors were very, very original and actually retained the Halloween/fear elements. I think T.O.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmm More Simpsons Boxsets!!! 16 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Currently they have done 16 seasons with 356 episodes. Season 17 is about to start in the US and I'm sure will be over here soon! I've realised that they're bringing out these season boxsets every 6 months so I garuntee you that season 7 will be out by March!!! - Just wait!
Anyway while we wait for season 17 and the ever closer 400th episode we can feast our eyes on the 6th season which yes has tonnes of great moments! "The Shinning" being one of the best haloween stories ever done by the simpsons in which Homer goes in a murderous rage when deprived of T.V. and beer for all of 10 seconds! You learn that Ned Flanders screams like a girl in an episode where Bart thinks Ned killed Maude! Sideshow Bob returns! (Voiced by Kelsey Grammer!) In an episode where he runs for mayor of Sprigfield but what would become of Quimby?! Homer goes to clown college (or Klown Kollege to carry on the Krusty 'K' joke!) and saving Krusty from Fat Tony and "an old italian stereotype"! And Santas Lil Helper gets some and the simpsons are stuck with a dozen puppies and eventually have to save them from Mr Burns' evil plan to turn them into a tuxedo. My god so many great moments!
The best moment in my view of the whole series is from "two dozen and one greyhounds" the episode where Santas Lil Helper spawns puppies who eventually catch the evil yet fashionable eye of Mr Burns. The moment I speak of is Mr Burn's imfamous 'See My Vest' song (in the tune of Disney's Beauty and the Beast song 'Be Our Guest') Also in the series Marge becomes a cop, Bart falls in love, Lisa sees her future, Homer and Grampa try to help their fellow impotent man and the Simpsons family causes havoc in Australia and also in a classic episode visit Itchy and Scratchy land!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Simpsons Season 6 25 Mar 2006
Format:DVD
Season 6 of the Simpsons followed on from the brilliant Season 5 and has more episodes and more special features. this was when the Simpsons were beginning to reach there best, and is right in the middle of the best seasons to be made (5-8). It is also the first season to end in a cliffhanger, with the "Who Shot Mr. Burns" mystery being revealed at the start of Series 7.
This season has 25 episodes, 3 more than the previous season 5, and they are some of the best episodes yet. In my opinion, the best episodes on the 4 discs are Bart of Darkness, Homie the Clown, The Springfield Connection, Lemon of Troy. There are tons of special features to keep you occupied once you have watched all 25 episodes, with the total running time of the 4 discs coming to 540 minutes!!!
As in the previous seasons, there are loads of guest stars including Larry King, Patrick Stewart, and Mel Brooks, and loads of funny moments, such as Homer doing the loop the loop on a tiny bicycle, and Maggie in the Halloween special with the famous quote "This is indeed a disturbing universe".
Overall, this is one of the very best seasons of the Simpsons, and with 25 episodes and 540 minutes, this will keep the laughs coming for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Springfield year six 20 Jan 2012
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All twenty five episodes of the sixth seasons of the Simpsons are here in one box set, spread over four dvds.

This is one of those seasons that nobody argues about the quality of. And it has a very memorable cliffhanger ending.

Episodes are as follows:

Bart of Darkness.
Lisa's rival.
Another Simpsons clip show.
Itchy and Scratchy Land.
Sideshow Bob Roberts.
Treehouse of Horror V.
Bart's girlfriend.
Lisa on Ice.
Homer Badman.
Grampa Vs Sexual inadequacy.
Fear of flying.
Homer the Great.
And Maggie makes three.
Bart's Comet.
Homie the Clown.
Bart Vs Australia.
Homer Vs Patty and Selma.
A Star is Burns.
Lisa's wedding.
Two Dozen and one Greyhounds.
The PTA disbands.
Round Springfield.
The Springfield Connection.
Lemon of Troy.
Who shot Mr. Burns? [Part one.]

Still very much riding the crest of the wave of having become a phenomenon at the time this season went out, they capitalised on it by producing a clifhanger ending with a mystery that gripped a nation. The resolution to which is on season seven.

All discs begin with an anti piracy ad, but you can skip that via the next button on the dvd remote.

All have direct scene access ad a commentary from the production staff.

The only language and subtitles option on this season is English. Save for Who Shot Mr. Burns part one which can, via a special language feature, be watched in Parisian French, Castilian Spanish, Czech or Russian.

Most episodes have deleted scenes, but they can't be watched individually. You're given the option to reinstate them in the episode or not.
