Customers who bought this item also bought
Box set containing all 25 episodes from Season 5 of the animated comedy series about the world's favourite dysfunctional family. Episodes comprise: 'Bart Of Darkness', 'Lisa's Rival', 'Another Simpson Clip Show', 'Itchy & Scratchyland', 'Sideshow Bob Roberts', 'Treehouse Of Horror V', 'Bart's Girlfriend', 'Lisa On Ice', 'Homer Badman', 'Grandpa vs. Sexual Inadequacy', 'Fear Of Flying', 'Homer The Great', 'And Maggie Makes Three', 'Bart's Comet', 'Homie The Clown', 'Bart vs. Australia', 'Homer vs. Patty And Selma', 'A Star Is Burns', 'Lisa's Wedding', 'Two Dozen And One Greyhounds', 'The PTA Disbands', 'Round Springfield', 'Springfield Connection', 'Lemon Of Troy' and 'Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part 1)'.
The classic to clunker ratio is still extraordinarily high, though The Simpsons' sixth season could give some devoted viewers pause. The show that takes cheeky delight in mooning television convention gives us "Another Simpsons Clip Show" and its first season-ending cliffhanger, "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" And, as does Bart in "A Star Is Burns," we should all feel a little dirty at the "cheap cartoon crossover" appearance of Jay Sherman (Jon Lovitz), designed to give a boost to the ill-fated animated series The Critic. But this is just beard-stroking tongue-clucking regarding a season that delivered episodes that rank in the hallowed The Simpsons pantheon, among them, "Homer Badman," in which lust for a gummy Venus de Milo, peeled from the behind of an unwitting babysitter, makes Homer the object of feminist protest and tabloid TV fodder, and "Homer the Great," in which Homer is discovered to be the Chosen One to lead the secret society, "The Stonecutters" ("Who holds back the electric car/Who made Steve Guttenberg a star?/We do!"). Several episodes take their inspiration from classic films and books: Hitchcock's Rear Window ("Bart of Darkness"); Michael Crichton's Westworld and Jurassic Park ("Itchy and Scratchy Land"); and Stephen King and Ray Bradbury ("Treehouse of Horror V").
This season's roster of guest voices is also especially impressive, including Winona Ryder as "Lisa's Rival," Meryl Streep as Rev. Lovejoy's bad-seed daughter ("She's like a Milk Dud," a smitten Bart laments. "Sweet on the outside, poison on the inside"), the late Anne Bancroft in "Fear of Flying"; Patrick Stewart in "Homer the Great"; Mel Brooks and Susan Sarandon in "Homer vs. Patty and Selma," and Mandy Patinkin as Lisa's future fiancée in the surprisingly moving "Lisa's Wedding." There has, of late, been a feud a-brewin' between fans of The Simpsons and Family Guy. Which show is funnier? Has The Simpsons lost it? Is Family Guy a Simpsons-wannabe? Hey; Can't we all just laugh along? Best to just marvel at another exemplary Simpsons season that, to quote Homer in "Lisa's Rival," delivers it all: "The terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles." --Donald Liebenson, Amazon.com

Who shot Mr. Burns? [Part one.]
Still very much riding the crest of the wave of having become a phenomenon at the time this season went out, they capitalised on it by producing a clifhanger ending with a mystery that gripped a nation. The resolution to which is on season seven.
All discs begin with an anti piracy ad, but you can skip that via the next button on the dvd remote.
All have direct scene access ad a commentary from the production staff.
The only language and subtitles option on this season is English. Save for Who Shot Mr. Burns part one which can, via a special language feature, be watched in Parisian French, Castilian Spanish, Czech or Russian.
Most episodes have deleted scenes, but they can't be watched individually. You're given the option to reinstate them in the episode or not.
Disc one has an introduction to the season from show creator Matt Groening.
Discs two and four do present animation showcases on one episode each, showing the animation at various stages of development.
Discs one and three do the same with an animatic.
Disc four also offers:
An illustrated commentary.
All twenty six minutes worth of aforementioned deleted scenes, which you can watch all in one go. Not individually.
Three short tv commercials for various products all of which featured Simpsons characters.
A one minute feature about a promotional tie in between the show and an airline.
A sketch gallery.
And a genuine rarity: 'Springfield's most wanted.' A special edition of America's most wanted, the US version of Crimewatch, which went out before Who Shot Mr. Burns part two, and which looks at the case. With lots of clips and contributions from celebrities.
There's also a short introduction to the episode by one of the producers.
The non limited edition box for the season is just the same as for previous years and is fine and sturdy.
It's a pity it lacks international subtitles, but it's another great collection for a classic season of a great show.
Not all episodes are great but the majority are very watchable.
By series 6 the Simpsosn had settled into a comfortable format which was genuinely funny.
Most secondary characters get a look in a few times.
