1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 April 2010
Format: DVD
If you've done you're research, you'll have no doubt realised that the quality of The Simpsons from Series 1 took a steady incline, peaked between 5, 6, 7, and then ended up here, the magnificent 8th series of this phenomenal show that features an array of super-tight story lines and wonderful gags . Everyone has their own opinion of the 'new' generation of Simpsons episodes, but I would strongly argue that this product, Series 8, was the last of the 'Golden Era', and from here the show was only going down hill with an atrocious number of guest celebrities and ridiculous plots.

Some helpful reviewers have already recited the entire Episode list (also, checkout the Wikipedia entry for a full break-down), so I shall simply conclude by writing my personal highlights of this Series. Enjoy!

Homers Enemy:

"Frank Grimes" - as soon as you hear that name, you just think of Homer referring to the very unlucky, grade A student and all round good egg who recently gets a job at the Nuclear Plant. But when the brains of such a character and the 'lack-of' from Homer meet, expect some hilarity from the simple dad!

Treehouse Of Horror VII:

An unusually inventive Treehouse episode here; particularly Lisa's story of her 'World-in-a-bowl'. Not the usual 'cartoon gore' episode you'd expect, but it makes for a comical change.

You Only Move Twice:

A really tight episode that see's Homer getting a new career, and with it, a new home and life for the rest of the family. But can they cope when everything is so.... Perfect? Hank Scorpio is a wonderful character as Homers new boss!

A Milhouse Divided:

Millhouse takes centre stage for a change, allowing his Mum and Dad to get some comical action.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Little Cat Voom TOP 500 REVIEWER on 13 Jun 2010
Format: DVD
If you`re a glass-half-full kind of person, and I like to think I am, then the fact the Simpsons did decline in quality from here should not cause too many tears; because this season is the best for my money. I adore Seasons 3, 4, 5 and 6, but believe this is the peak in terms of number of standout episodes. At least four of my top ten ever episodes are here.

Treehouse Of Horror VII - *****
One of the best Treehouse episodes, starring Hugo, Bart`s evil twin; Lisa becomes God to a tiny world she creates from her baby tooth; and an excellent Kang and Kodos feature to finish.

You Only Move Twice - *****
Simply fantastic, frequent Simpson`s guest star Albert Brooks plays Hank Scorpio in a brilliant Bond spoof.

The Homer They Fall - ****
Homer discovers he has ("Why Me!") Homer Simpson Syndrome, thus giving his brain extra protection from the gloves of Mike Tyso...I mean, Drederick Tatum.

Burns Baby Burns - ****
Not especially brilliant guest star Rodney Dangerfield plays Burns` long-lost and hugely embarrassing Homer-alike son, Larry. Cue hijinks as Homer and Larry hatch a kidnap plot to "win a father`s love".

Bart After Dark - *****
Homer, to assorted church people: If Homer Simpson wants his ten-year old son to work in a burlesque house, then Homer Simpson`s ten-year old son will work in a burlesque house!
Homer, realising Marge is behind the crowd: Now Marge, you`re going to hear a lot of crazy talk about Bart working in a Burlesque House.
Certainly an episode that has grown on me to become a favourite, with a classic Simpsons song to round things up.

A Milhouse Divided - ***
A bit of a downer really! At least Marge and Homer`s relationship strengthens as a result.
