Slightly disappointing, but still some classic episodes
on 23 June 2000
If this video was a doughnut, it would probably be a chocolate one that had dried out a bit and gone off its best. There's a couple of brilliant episodes on this (including the one where Mr Burns sells the power plant to the Germans), and the one where Homer gains 150lbs just so he can work from home.
The episode where Homer becomes the food critic is not so good, and "Raiders of the Lost Fridge" is not the best compilation - Dark Secrets or Viva Los Simpsons both contain better episodes and have more consistent themes. Another niggle is the age of some of these episodes - one is dated 1991. This would be acceptable were it not for the fact that BBC2 seem to be showing 1990-1992 on a ten-week loop, but I can't help feeling that there's lots of newer episodes that we could be seeing.
Definitely worth renting, but only die-hard completists should feel they have to own it.
