This is one of those seasons that nobody argues about the quality of, so you can take the merits of each episode for granted.
The discs have the following language and subtitle options:
Every disc allows you to watch an episode at a time or all of the ones on it in a row.
Every episode has direct scene access and a commentary from some of those involved in it.
Many episodes have deleted scenes and the episode menu will let you choose whether to watch the episode with them re-inserted or not.
Every menu screen is different and will play some good visual jokes if you let them run without making a selection.
Extras are as follows:
A minute long introduction to the season from Simpsons creator Matt Groening.
Homer in the 3rd dimension. A six minute long feature about how the computer animation in the third part of the episode Treehouse of Horror VI was done.
Paul and Linda's lentil soup. Sir Paul Mccartney reads a recipe for lentil soup first heard in the episode Lisa the Vegetarian.
Animation showcase: this goes with the episode home sweet homediddly-dum-doodily and allows you to watch it with the animation in various stages of completeness.
A bit from the animators: fourteen minutes from the episode the day the violence died with a commentary from some of the animators talking about how some of the visuals were acheived. It's pretty interesting even if you're not into the technical side of the subject.
The deleted scenes for the season, which are spread about on the discs between the episodes they come from, can be watched here all in a row. Running to eighteen minutes. Either with or without commentary from the production staff. Some are slightly unfinished and thus in black and white.
Another of the above animation showcases, this time on the episode ragaing Abe Simpson and his grumbling grandson in 'the curse of the flying hellfish.'
Another bit from the animators. This runs for nine minutes and has them looking at the episode summer of 4 ft 2.
Special language feature. Allows you to watch the episode twenty two short films about Springfield with the subtitles in either Italian, Japanese, German or Brazilian Portugese.
Also some original sketches from the animators of various characters and scenes. There are eleven of them and they can be looked at individually or in a row.
It's another good package for another strong season of a television institution.
