mrliteral 5.0 out of 5 starsAnother box o'fun April 10, 2008Format: DVDVerified Purchase It'd be easy enough to praise the boxed set of The Simpsons - Season Nine if there were just the episodes themselves to consider. But as with previous seasons, there is a lot more to enjoy.

Let's start with the box itself: each of the four discs look like a mock LP, with such names as Cowabunga Records and Atomic Records (with three-eyed fish logo). Then there are the six postcards, each with different art, including parodies of the album covers for Abbey Road and Nevermind. The music theme continues in the program booklet which includes ads for a Disco Stu CD and King Toot's Music Store.

Then there are the episodes. I won't review them all, but a few of note include the season premiere episode, "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" which pokes fun at the Big Apple; this episode would be temporarily put out of circulation after 9/11 due to its depiction of the World Trade Center. In "Lisa's Sax", we learn how Lisa got her sax and Bart got his attitude. In "The Joy of Sect", the family joins a UFO cult. "Girly Edition" satirizes TV news when Bart's shallow human interest stories trump Lisa's fact-filled news. "Trash of the Titans" (the 200th episode) features Steve Martin and U2 and has Homer becoming Sanitation Commissioner; other guest stars this season include Jay Leno, Brendan Fraser, Martin Sheen, Joe Namath, Jim Varney, Helen Hunt, Bob Denver, Alex Trebek and Phil Hartman.

There's a reason that the Simpsons have lasted nearly 20 years, namely because it's so well-written. Even the so-so episodes are better than most comedies at their best. But this season has all good-to-great episodes, each with commentary. There are also plenty of deleted scenes and a few other extras. If you're a Simpsons fan, this set is a delight that you must own. 4 people found this helpful Helpful Report abuse Permalink Insert product linkPaste the product's web address below: Product not found.
