5.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Gold!, 18 May 2008
This review is from: The Simpsons - Season 5 [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
Throughout season 5 (first broadcast between September 93 - May 94), The Simpsons was on top of it's game, and these 22 episodes serve as a reminder as to why the show was (and still is) so popular.

The series really had everything together at the time, the writing was first rate, the animation and the voices were perfect, it was simply great entertainment that could be enjoyed by people all over the world, of all ages. I think it speaks volumes that although these episodes are over ten years old now, they haven't dated at all, and still remain as funny and fresh as they did at the time.

Highlights from this season include 'Cape Feare', the infamous parody of the film 'Cape Fear' and Sideshow Bob's best outing (the episode is, in my opinion, a very strong contender of the best ever Simpsons episode), another classic spoof is 'Marge on the Lam', a parody of 'Thelma and Louise', and there is also a milestone: 'Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song', which marked the 1,000th episode of the show, no mean feat, and an impressive (even to this day) achievement.

As I can't say I dislike any episode, it's difficult to single any more out, although Bart's dilemma in 'The Boy Who Knew Too Much', Homer playing detective in 'Homer the Vigilante', and trying to resist the idea of an affair in the 'The Last Temptation of Homer', have long since been personal favourites of mine. As always, the DVD boxset is loaded with features: commentaries on all 22 episodes, commercials and deleted scenes for 14 episodes to name just a few of the added extras.

I think that the fifth batch remains my personal favourite season of the Simpsons, and with no ending in site, it looked like the show would go on forever, and it has to this day, even though the quality has greatly gone hill.

However, this is pure Simpsons gold, and highly recommended!
