With series 9 we get the best run of episodes ever,
This review is from: The Simpsons - Season 9 [DVD] (DVD)
This is the last series of the simpsons where the quality is consistent throughout the run, after which the episodes are very hit and miss. With series 9 we get the best run of episodes ever. The stand out ones include: The city of new york vs. Homer simpson, treehouse of horror viii, the cartridge family, the two mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons, lisa the skeptic, dumbbell indemnity and trash of the titans and while the remainders are not as memorable, they are still better than most of the later offerings. My favourite episode of the simpsons is also present within this series, with it being dumbbell indemnity - in which homer is asked to 'steal' moe's car - this is because it contains one of the best visual scenes in the show, where homer jumps out of moe's car, roles over a rock and is forced back into it as it goes over the edge of the cliff. Series 9 also has some great gags - the motorboat one spring to mind. As well as this there are some good lines by homer himself, these include:'That's it i am getting out of this city alive even if it kills me''Wow that was a nice candy bar i wish i was eating another one right now (sees apu and apu's mother arrive at the simpson's house) oh crap!''Now can i please have my motorboat''Oh i don't know marge trying is the 1st step towards failure''Where's christmas? (Starts to weep) lisa where's christmas?''Oh they have the internet on computers now!''Must kill moe!! Weeeee!! Must kill moe!!!!'And my favourite of the lot:'(Sings) up, up and away in my beautiful, my beautiful motorboat, da, da, da, da.'
In all; if you don't own this and you like the simpsons then you should buy it, it's definitely worth a watch, well if i am honest more than one watch - it's so good. Now before i ramble some more i will end this review as my boating arm is starting to hurt!
