The Simpsons Season 3. Yet Another Great Success!!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Simpsons: Complete Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
The Simpsons season 3 have picked off from Season 2, with the first episode first aired on September 1991, to August 1992, and I must say, from then on, the Simpsons were on the A-list, with more famous guest stars in it, and better storylines, and funnier gags, that could make you forget about Seasons 1 and 2, (even though I like the previous ones just as much).
Season 3 has 24 episodes, each one a classic for you to enjoy.
The episodes are:
'Stark Raving Dad',
'Mr. Lisa Goes To Washington',
'When Flanders Failed',
'Bart The Murderer',
'Like Father Like Clown',
'Treehouse Of Horror 2',
'Saturdays Of Thunder',
'Burns Verkaufen Der Kraftwerk',
'I Married Marge',
'Lisa The Greek',
'Bart The Lover',
'Homer At The Bat',
'Dog Of Death',
'The Otto Show',
'Bart's Friend Falls In Love'
and 'Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes'.
Such guest stars include (in order of appearances): Michael Jackson (John Jay Smith in the credits due to contractual obligations), Lona Williams, Joe Mantegna (Fat Tony), Jackie Mason (Krusty the Clown's father), Magic Johnson (himself), Aerosmith (Steve Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, and Joey Kramer as themselves),Sting (himself), the unforgettable Phil Hartman (as multiple characters, including Troy Mclure), Steve Allen (himself), Kelsey Grammer (as the vengeful Sideshow Bob), Spinal Tap members (themselves), Smokin' Joe Frazier (himself), and Danny Devito (as Herb, Homer's half brother, who rises to claim and fame, with the help of the Simpsons in the last episode). So you can see, that there are many stars to consider.
As for the special features, there is a commentary on every episode by creator Matt Groening, joined by executive producer James L. Brooks, writers, actors and directors on selected episodes, a pop-up trivia feature, which is very strange but unusually brilliant, and audio outtakes from cast and guest stars, and Butterfinger commercials including Bart's Thanksgiving, as well as a trailer for some episodes such as, "Colonel Homer", in where he meets a country western singer named Lurleen Lumpkin, (voiced by Beverly D'Angelo).
In conlusion, the Season 3 Box Set is definetely the one to start saving on, and when I bought one in Amazon, I was so excited ,and literally counted down the number of days for it to arrive, (I actually got it, 2-4 weeks before the time it was supposed to come, talk about fast delivery),and when I got it, there were so many episodes to look at, to listen to it on the detailed commentary, to see the special features, and to be amazed at what they had in it, because whether you are big or small, a fan or not, this is truly a DVD box set that is worth every single penny.
