This review is from: The Simpsons: Springfield Murder Mysteries [DVD] (DVD)
I owned this for many years on video and decided to finally buy the DVD. Even though I have 'The Simpsons' seasons boxsets, I still think that this 'themed' compilation of 'Murder Mysteries' is worth buying just to have four classic (related) episodes in one place.

The first half of this DVD focuses on the murderous schemes of Sideshow Bob. In 'Black Widower' (1992), Bob is released from prison and during his time in jail, has written pen pal letters to Selma, he marries her and tries to murder her on their honeymoon. Stupid Homer steals this episode for me, it's so funny to see him puzzled about what's going on when Bart informs him for his murderous plans. This is a highly entertaining and funny episode and was one that stood out in my mind when I was a child. The final episode is my personal Simpsons favourite: 'Cape Fare' (1993). Largely based on the horror film of the same name, Bob once again sets foot outside of jail and tries to murder Bart, the family move away under a new identity, but Sideshow Bob soon tracks them down. This is a superb episode, one that you can watch again and again, I know a lot of people who regard 'Cape Fare' as their favourite. It's so well written and absolutely hilarious.

The next half of the DVD is taken up by the brilliant two part 'Who Shot Mr. Burns?' episode, a clever parody on Dallas' 'Who Shot J.R?' storyline. The first half was the last episode of season six and ends on a cliff hanger. Viewers originally had to wait until the seventh season to find out who shot Burns. The first episode contained a number of subtle clues, for viewers who wanted to unravel the mystery. A superb two part episode and a genuine whodunnit.

For me, this is the best single disc compilation of Simpsons episodes, the set is simply brilliant from start to finish.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Springfield Murder Mysteries, 27 Sep 2005
This review is from: The Simpsons: Springfield Murder Mysteries [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is great with every episode brillient but it takes the shine of of this DVD come 6 months time all these episodes will be on the season boxsets. But if you can't wait that long..........like me to own who shot mr. burns i would urge you to buy it 5 stars is very fair but i'd recomend waiting untill season 7 boxset is out

Truly brilliant episodes for any Simpsons fan. You have two classic side show bob eps and the two parter of who shot mr burns (the later is why I bought it as I didn't want to but two series just to have it). These compilations are great for those of us who don't want them all but love having a select few. Great price too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Springfield Murder Mysteries, 1 May 2005
This review is from: The Simpsons: Springfield Murder Mysteries [DVD] (DVD)
Cooool!! Another of the endless Simpson classics DVDs. Contains four episodes from different seasons, including the fantastic, 'Who Shot Mr.Burns?' episodes, as i'm sure you've heard Mr.Burns gets shot and luckily survives, but who did the crime? Wait untill you find out, and you will if you simply buy this fantastic DVD to add to your collection. Great, just like all the other Simpson DVDs, this one will have you sitting on the edge of your seat! Great graphics, 1 disc- don't let this get you down, just buy it!!
