5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all began - let it into your heart!, 6 Oct. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Simpsons: Complete Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Here's where it all began - the opening of what would progress to become the greatest thing to happen to TV; the mere reason for its whole existence. Not only do you have the full first season with Homer and his yellow-skinned clan all nicely wrapped up in a trio of DVDs, but you get some really great extras into the bargain, including the first Simpsons short, as it appeared on 'The Tracey Ullman Show' back in 1987, and optional audio commentaries with the show's crew for every episode. Man, does this neat package bring back memories for me, as I'm sure it will do for anyone who grew up with the Simpsons always playing in the background.
Okay, so the animation is a little off-model, inking is a little irregular and the voices are still in development, but ask yourself this - do you really care? The First Simpsons season is full class from top to bottom, with ace stories and slick dialogue around every corner. Particularly great is Bart's conflict with school bully Nelson Muntz, and his response to round up all the neighbourhood kids and fight back against the pre-teen thug with the help of Abe and Herman, two of the show's greatest characters, not to mention his adventures in France in 'The Crepes of Wrath' when he finds himself enslaved in a vineyard. 'Call of the Simpsons' and 'Life in the Fast Lane' also come highly recommended. Best points go to Maggie Simpson though, whose various little cameos throughout the series are always worth looking out for.
