wow! really good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Simpsons - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
As good or better than the Season 1 set of discs. These discs are jam packed full of quality entertainment... twenty-two episodes from their 2nd season, commentary, 2 Bart videos ("Deep, Deep Trouble", and "Do the Bartman"), 3 different Butterfinger commercials, still photos, DVD easter eggs, and a special Emmy awards presentation. Animation is sharper - even the rougher (Season 1) Simpson's are fine with me. Comic wit is bolder and cruder. Over a decade of prime time animated TV and I still have not seen an episode I haven't liked.
Season 2 episodes in order:
"Bart Gets An F"
"Simpson And Delilah"
"Treehouse Of Horror I"
"Two Cars In Every Garage And Three Eyes On Every Fish"
"Dead Putting Society"
"Bart Vs. Thanksgiving"
"Bart The Daredevil"
"Itchy & Scratchy & Marge"
"Bart Gets Hit By A Car"
"One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish"
"The Way We Was"
"Homer Vs. Lisa And The 8th Commandment"
"Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?"
"Bart's Dog Gets An F"
"Brush With Greatness"
"The War Of The Simpsons"
"Three Men And A Comic Book"
Season 2 contains some classic early episodes... a favorite of mine, "The War Of The Simpson's". Marge signs herself and Homer up for counseling. They go to a cottage retreat where Homer battles his marriage as well as a giant fish. Season 2 also introduces the 1st Halloween special ("Treehouse Of Horror")... which is now an annual party for the creators to think outside the box of normalcy. Having so many episodes on a few DVD's is worth it. Quality in picture, dolby sound, and everything else that goes with the incredible technology of the DVD. Only complaint here is it's 4 DVD's... even Homer would want this all on 1-2 DVD's so it's less time getting up off the sofa and having to change the discs in the DVD player.
it also has:
• Animated, Color, Closed-captioned, Box set, Dolby
• Commentary by on all episodes
• Interviews with James L. Brooks and Matt Groening
• Bart on the American Music Awards (with commentary)
• "Do The Bartman" video (with optional commentary)
• "Deep, Deep Trouble" video (with optional commentary)
• "Do The Bartman (Director's Cut)" - video
• David Silverman on the creation of an episode
• Licensing and merchandising review
• Emmy Awards presentation
• 3 Butterfinger commercials
• Still Photos (Easter eggs)
• Early drawings
• Full-screen format
• Number of discs: 4
A must buy for anyone, even non-Simpsons fans.
