Excellent themed Simpsons DVD
on 1 March 2014
I admit that I'm not really a fan of the recent Simpsons, regarding the first eight seasons as the golden era and sticking to the box sets from one to eight only.
However, I was very impressed with the episodes featured on 'Around The World in 80 D'ohs!", I picked this DVD up cheaply and enjoyed every episode.
The collection's theme is episodes where the Simpson family travel outside the USA. In 'Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo' (season 10) they go to Japan, 'Simpson Safari' (season 12) sees them on a free trip in Africa, Brazil is next on the cards in 'Blame It on Lisa' (season 13) and finally, in 'The Regina Monologues' (season 15, 2003), the Simpsons are in London. The latter episode notably features guest appearances from Jane Leeves, Tony Blair, Evan Marriott, Sir Ian McKellen and J.K. Rowling as themselves.
If, like me, you aren't going to bother buying the full season box sets of the later Simpsons, this themed DVD of great episodes is a good purchase.
