5.0 out of 5 stars Another Simpsons Smash!, 6 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Simpsons - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Now 'The Simpsons' rolls onto Season Two, another super stage in the show's development. This time, you get 22 sizzling stories, with even better extras than the first season, including two music videos to the 1991 hits 'Do the Bartman' and 'Deep, Deep Trouble', the latter of which I hadn't seen for over ten years and was thrilled to finally see it again. This season harks back to a time when the show had first hit the right popularity buttons, and Simpsons mania was springing up everywhere for the first time. And deservedly so. Here Bart is noticably the main character, though Homer, Marge, Lisa and Maggie still get their moments. Real star of the season, for me, though, is Herb Powell, Homer's warm but tempermental half-brother voiced wonderfully by Danny DeVito, who makes his first appearence in 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou?'
'Old Money' is probably the best episode overall, in which the relationship between Homer and Abe is examined for the first time in great detail, soon to become one of the show's most moving and haunting elements for subsequent seasons, while 'The Way We Was' provides a slick look at how Homer and Marge first came to be together. Phil Hartman also provides voice-overs for the first time in roughly three of these episodes, including 'Homer Versus Lisa and the 8th Commandment', in which various characters respond differently to the moral dilemma of obtaining an illegal cable TV hook up. Lisa in particular is horrified that a Commandment is being broken, and tries to show her indifferent father the error of his ways, in a wonderful story that surely proved that the Simpsons were fundamentally a highly moral (and extremely entertaining) show. 'Lisa's Substitute' and 'War of the Simpsons' are simply too wonderful to describe! So what are you waiting for? Click those buttons and order this stunning item today!
