Season 9 is an important one in The Simpsons’ run because, to many fans, it represents the top of the rainbow. At this point, the show is still at the top of its game, flinging clever jokes and social satire with such ease, especially compared to later seasons, that it’s hard not to see this as the peak of its run, leaving open the question of whether or not subsequent seasons measure up. Be that as it may, there’s hardly any question that the writing this season is among the series’ best. This is the season tha… More >>

    First let me say that I didn’t purchase this from Amazon, and even if I did, the defective discs are the fault of the manufacturer and not the retailer. Also, my rating of 1 star is done in protest, as this is not the first time I’ve purchased one of these Simpsons sets only to find scratched discs — my Season 4 set came pre-scratched, as did Season 5, which I returned only to have exchanged for ANOTHER pre-scratched set. The same thing happened with this season: I purchased it new, took it home, and found that one of the discs was badly scracthed. I returned it to the store, exchanged it for another NEW copy, which I then opened to find ANOTHER scratched disc. And not just slightly scratched — it looked like someone had run over the disc with something, it had a large abrasion on it. At any rate, 20th Century Fox needs to do something about their quality control. For this reason, as well as the decline in the quality of the show after this season, I doubt very much I’ll be spending my money on any additional Simpsons DVD sets.

    The show may have lost some of it’s greatness in this season, but it does not mean that it’s not a bad season. In fact, it has some very memorable moments including the 200th episode which guests stars U2 and Steve Martin.

    With some DVDS, I neglect to buy them only because I can watch them on TV. But this is not the case with this DVD. Because they RARELY EVER AIR THEM. I’ve only seen Homer vs. NYC one time and that was about four years ago. The only episodes they do show of this season are “Lost our Lisa”, “Lisa the Simpson”, and ” The Two Mrs. Nahassapemmapettalonns”.

    If you really want to see these episode at all and uncut you’ll have to buy this. And I’m sure you won’t regret it.

    Season Nine is a underrated season with Underated Episodes.

    Trouble with Trillions, The Helen Hunt Episode, Girly Edition Classic Simpsons they have aged like Fine Wine. But alas the Audio Commentary blows. I guess they don’t watch the episodes over and over again lke me. But I will continue to own them all. I don’t like the First Six Seasons…..Weird HUH? And the NYC Episode I wish would come back into syndication. I mean if Homer Destroyed, Disrespected, the Two Towers i’d understand. But he’s just waiting for the Car boot to come off and then he runs to Tower one and two to go to the bathroom. That’s it, nothing more. Well my FYE Sold this DVD Set early than its supposed release date. But it’s worth watching over and over again.

    This is not the last great Simpsons season. It is tired, and apparently the writers and producers just stopped caring. Even the animation suffers. What a drop off from season 8 which was absolutely brilliant.

    1) The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson. This show absolutely serves notice that the quality is gone. Not only does it trot out every tired old, uninspired cliche these guys could come up with, but check out the background animation: it’s nice to see that the people who brought us Hong Kong Phooey in the 70s have again found gainful employment. For those of you too young to know Hong Kong Phooey, check out the drawing of the two towers while Homer is keeping watch over his car (in one of the most boring and drawn out scenes in Simpson history); it looks like they were drawn by first-graders. This is not what I’ve come to expect from these guys.

    2) The Principle and the Pauper. In any previous season, this would be an OK but nothing special episode–not terrible, but only a couple minor laughs. In this season, it is the stand-out gem.

    3) Lisa’s Sax. Every season has a really bad show in which one of the adults reminisces about the way things were. In these episodes, the running joke is the kids don’t care. In reality, no one else does either. Here’s my radical thought: if you can’t come up with an idea for a show, don’t do one. There is nothing of interest here.

    4) Tree House of Horror. I’ll be honest: I skipped this one. These shows are generally lame with a few exceptions in some of the earliest seasons, so what’s the point?

    5) The Cartridge Family. Jokes just miss, and this show is a reminder of how good the Simpson creators were in the past and how good this show could have been if they were as creative when they were writing it as they were in earlier seasons. Again, check out the backgrounds–the animation is very weak.

    6) The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons. Where are the conspiracy theorists when we need them? Did someone kidnap Groening and the writers and replace them with less talented imposters? This show is all the evidence that I need.

    7) Lisa the Skeptic. OK, the ending was funny, but the show was weak. There were a number of good ideas that could have been funny, but the writers did not deliver.

    So what’s the point of continuing? If you loved the first eight seasons, you will either love this season because you are in denial at how far the show has fallen and how rapidly, or you will hate this season and pretend, as I will, that the Simpsons went off the air, gracefully, after season eight.
