From Amazon.co.uk

Season 12 of The Simpsons flies in the face of the contention that it’s the earlier runs of the show where you’ll find the gold. Granted, it’s been tough to keep the standard up to the levels of the show at its finest, but here we find some majestic and inspired Simpsons moments.

Season 12 doesn’t have, it should noted, the calibre of guest voice star of previous runs. That said, it’s still the core adventures of Homer, Maggie, Lisa, Marge and Bart that form the heart of the fun. Particular favourite highlights of The Simpsons’ twelfth season include Lisa’s relationship with the tree hugger, Homer’s brand new gossip website, the moment where Homer suddenly (and temporarily!) gets a burst of intelligence, and the wonderfully titled Worst Episode Ever. There’s also the very welcome return of Sideshow Bob, as voiced by Kelsey Grammar.

The writing of The Simpsons, as evidenced here, remains witty and sharp, and while perhaps there aren’t so many of the belly laughs of the earlier years, season 12 still more than justifies its purchase price. At least half the episodes here are ones you’ll be looking, we’d suspect, to watch again. Factor in too the usual high quality selection of extras, and long after most series have folded, we continue to find The Simpsons on fine form. --Jon Foster

Great season, very funny. Highlights are Children of a Lesser Clod (Homer starts a daycare centre), I'm Goin' to Praiseland (Ned creates a Christian amusement park), The Great Money Caper (Homer and Bart become con-men), Worst Episode Ever (Bart and Milhouse take over the Android's Dungeon), Skinner's Sense of Snow (The kids are trapped inside school at Christmas) and HOMR (Homer becomes smart when researchers take a pencil out of his brain that was there since he was a kid).

Not all the episodes are good, though. Insane Clown Poppy (Krusty discovers he has a daughter), Day of the Jackanapes (Sideshow Bob hypnotizes Bart to kill Krusty), Tennis the Menace (the family get a tennis court installed in their back yard), Hungry Hungry Homer (Homer goes on a hunger strike to stop the Springfield Isotopes from moving) and New Kids on the Blecch (Bart joins a boy band called "Party Posse") are duds. Nevertheless, a very good season.

Pros:
-Detailed and colourful graphics.
-All comic booked themed down to the finest details, i.e. the small leaflet that acts as a episode guide.
-Great range of episodes. Then again I suppose it's all down to personal taste!

Cons:
-From the 10th season onwards, the simpsons has taken a leap from it's previous episodes. Modernised references and jokes are frequently used.
-There are a few random guest appearences that jump into the story line, almost to keep the story going when it starts to wear thin.
-The packaging.
The packaging without question is a big problem if you wish to keep your DVD in great condition. Due to the size of the slots that the DVD's fit into, it's completely inevitable that they're going to end up getting scratched. I've only took the discs out twice, and already I can see the scratches appear. I don't understand why they haven't altered the packaging considering they will undoubtfully of have had numberous complaints by now! But ah well... what will be will be. This may sound like a minor complaint, but honestly, if you're picky about keeping your DVD's in good condition, this will definitely bug you :-( Many other amazon customers have shared the same concern, so I would really consider this before you buy.

Overall though, if you're a die hard simpsons fan who is eager to get a hold of a copy of the 12th season, then I'd urge you too. You won't be dissapointed with the episodes unless you prefer the older classics, and due to the beautiful graphics on the packaging, you could probably overlook the disc problems :-)

Hope this is helpful!

I really like this season and it has some of my favourite episodes; HOMR, Worst Episode Ever and the sublime Trilogy of Error.

The packing is gorgeous - a crimson box houses the discs in a wonderfully-decorated, six-fold concertina - but there really is an issue with it; almost everything about the cover and sleeves ensures they'll get damaged and cause damage to the discs. The outer box is quite flimsy card which will easily crush and crease. The fold-in flap I'm having to leave open if I don't want to crease the box taking the disc-pack out.

What people say about the inner box is true; it's a chore and scratches the discs. When I took them out the first time, all 4 discs were scratched already. In pulling one disc out, I scratched the playing side badly on the edge of the adjacent disc (this is possible because each pair of discs comes out edge first from a slot either side of a fold in the concertina). The scratched disc plays ok but I was very lucky not to have ruined it. Lastly, the tightness of each 'wallet' makes it hard to get a grip on the disc to get it out. You either have to bend and crease the wallet to open it wide or use your finger or nail on the surface of the disc to get a grip on it, guaranteed to grease or scratch it.

Many of the episodes in this set are good to great but, overall, I have to give this set 2 stars. Good episodes, lovely-looking artwork, but incomprehensible design.

The Simpsons suffered an agonizing low at the beginning of the 21st Century when the writers got lazy and the show became nearly unwatchable. It's this painful decline that I blame for the rise in the vastly inferior and undeniably ugly Family Guy.

Having never seen any of the episodes as they aired on TV, I only got Season 12 as I already had 1-11 on DVD. To my delight it features hardly a single bad episode and is consistently funny with dozens of laugh-out-loud moments. Absolutely brilliant!

The packaging is just downright awful though. A nice idea, but poor execution. I wish studios would move away from cardboard digipacks. They're just not made to last.

The package is still unacceptable and thus I've decided not to buy a Simpsons set for the first time ever! As long as Fox and Matt Groening refuse to release the sets in reasonable quality, i.e. boxes that do not damage the discs and do not fall apart on their own, I'm not going to spend any more money on this franchise! I know Groening wants to save the environment and so do I but conventional Simpsons boxed sets using plastic devices are NOT the main reason for global warming. Theses paper boxes are nothing but a very bad running gag and I am no longer laughing, Mr Groening.
