5.0 out of 5 stars Simpsons Season One - It's about time, 21 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Simpsons: Complete Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I could hardly contain my excitement when I heard that 'The Simpsons' Season One would soon be released and when it was finally released I was already watching the first 13 episodes with a keen sense of nostalgia. From the humble beginings of 'Simpsons roasting on an open fire,' first aired in 1989, to other classics such as 'Homer's Night Out' in which Homer is photographed by Bart's spy camera dancing with the exotic Princess Kashmir, there are also other classic episodes such as 'Some Enchanted Evening' in which Marge and Homer entrusts their kids with a killer babysitter, and also 'Moaning Lisa' which involves a down-hearted Lisa meeting up with Jazz saxophone player Bleedinggums Murphy in a beautifully sympathetic episode. There are too many divine moments to fully recollect in one single review, but a devoted fan will no doubt enjoying reliving classic gags and first time character intoductions as well as analysing the visible advancement of the already brilliant yet simple animation.
Some fans may be dissapointed with the extra features (as if 13 superb episodes wasn't already enough excitement for one viewer). There is commentary by creator Matt Groening on all 13 episodes, as well as scripts for 'Bart The Genius,' 'Bart the General,' 'Moaning Lisa,' and 'Some Enchanted Evening.' Other features include outtakes, a Tracy Ullman short, partially unaired episode, as well as early Matt Groening sketches. All this within an attractive silver 'collector's edition' packaging and with 'Futurama' series one hopefully on its way in late January 2002 it should keep us Groening fans smiling until our itchy paws start digging for Simpson's Season two that is.
