Springfield year six
on 20 January 2012
All twenty five episodes of the sixth seasons of the Simpsons are here in one box set, spread over four dvds.
This is one of those seasons that nobody argues about the quality of. And it has a very memorable cliffhanger ending.
Episodes are as follows:
Bart of Darkness.
Another Simpsons clip show.
Itchy and Scratchy Land.
Sideshow Bob Roberts.
Treehouse of Horror V.
Lisa on Ice.
Grampa Vs Sexual inadequacy.
Fear of flying.
Homer the Great.
And Maggie makes three.
Homie the Clown.
Bart Vs Australia.
Homer Vs Patty and Selma.
A Star is Burns.
Two Dozen and one Greyhounds.
The PTA disbands.
The Springfield Connection.
Lemon of Troy.
Who shot Mr. Burns? [Part one.]
Still very much riding the crest of the wave of having become a phenomenon at the time this season went out, they capitalised on it by producing a clifhanger ending with a mystery that gripped a nation. The resolution to which is on season seven.
All discs begin with an anti piracy ad, but you can skip that via the next button on the dvd remote.
All have direct scene access ad a commentary from the production staff.
The only language and subtitles option on this season is English. Save for Who Shot Mr. Burns part one which can, via a special language feature, be watched in Parisian French, Castilian Spanish, Czech or Russian.
Most episodes have deleted scenes, but they can't be watched individually. You're given the option to reinstate them in the episode or not.
Disc one has an introduction to the season from show creator Matt Groening.
Discs two and four do present animation showcases on one episode each, showing the animation at various stages of development.
Discs one and three do the same with an animatic.
Disc four also offers:
An illustrated commentary.
All twenty six minutes worth of aforementioned deleted scenes, which you can watch all in one go. Not individually.
Three short tv commercials for various products all of which featured Simpsons characters.
A one minute feature about a promotional tie in between the show and an airline.
A sketch gallery.
And a genuine rarity: 'Springfield's most wanted.' A special edition of America's most wanted, the US version of Crimewatch, which went out before Who Shot Mr. Burns part two, and which looks at the case. With lots of clips and contributions from celebrities.
There's also a short introduction to the episode by one of the producers.
The non limited edition box for the season is just the same as for previous years and is fine and sturdy.
It's a pity it lacks international subtitles, but it's another great collection for a classic season of a great show.
