Product Description

Features four Christmas-themed Simpsons episodes.

From the Back Cover

Homer vs. Dignity: To make money, Homer lets Mr. Burns hire him to perform increasingly degrading acts. Finally, Homer is forced to choose between wealth andself-respect when Burns orders him to spoil a holiday parade.

Dude, Where's My Ranch?: Homer's attempt to write a Christmas carol turns into an anti-Flanders ballad that goes to the top of the charts. To escape it, the family heads to a dude ranch, where Homer battles beavers and Lisa falls in love.

Skinner's Sense of Snow: A freak blizzard traps the students of Springfield Elementary inside their school. Their lives at stake, they are at the mercy of the rescue efforts of a woozy Homer and Ned.

'Tis the 15th Season: Homer spends his entire Christmas bonus on an extravagant gift for himself. But when he watches "Mr. McGrew's Christmas Carol" on TV, he sees the error of his ways. He becomes the nicest guy in town, leading to a battle of good vs. goody-good with Ned Flanders.

For my part, I'm a little puzzled at the people who rail against Fox for releasing this kind of themed compilation. Speaking as both a die-hard Simpsons fan and the father of two small kids, I'm pleased as punch that these compilations are out there, because I flat out don't have the money to buy all the complete season box-sets. Rather than accusing Fox of being greedy (let's grow up people, they're a for-profit business whose purpose it to make money), I think they actually deserve some credit for realising that there are customers looking for smaller portions to feed our habit and hopefully get some of our favorite episodes. And, hey, if I don't like the episodes they put on a particular set, the wonderful thing is that I have the choice to say, no I'm not going to buy this. Maybe it is the greatest TV show ever, but it is still just a TV show, and a little perspective never hurt anyone (except maybe that Tron-like computer-ish perspective Homer got in that one Treehouse of Horror segment, that is).

I enjoy The Simpsons too much to say I don't like this dvd, but I have to say I ordered this thinking it would have Christmas themes.
There was only one truly Christmas themed episode on here, and the rest tie into Christmas very loosely.
I still get a kick out of watching the episodes, but if you are looking for a straight-up Christmas themed dvd then you may want to re-think this one.

The Simpsons--Christmas 2 has four Christmastime episodes despite the fact that not all of these four episodes focuses on Christmas. However, the episodes are well thought out and funny with the exception of "Dude, Where's My Ranch" which has cute moments in the latter (and longer) part of the episode only after the real laughs are over. The quality of the print is very good and the sound is fine, too. The plots move along very well and they will entertain fans of The Simpsons as well as newcomers. You don't need to know too much background information about the characters to enjoy these four episodes; and that's a definite plus. The characters are nicely developed in an incredibly short period of time for the maximum amount of humor and action.

Here is an outline of the four episodes; and no, I won't spoil it for you!

"Homer vs. Dignity:" The Simpsons become financially destitute--to the point where a financial counselor tells them they may have to declare bankruptcy--several times. Desperate to raise much needed cash (he even sold the back seat of the car for money), Homer takes advantage of Smithers' vacation time to do increasingly humiliating acts for the money he and his family have to have. How far will Homer go to satisfy Mr. Burns? Will Homer ever draw the line or does something else happen that makes Homer's stunts for Mr. Burns go bad? And, how does this story line tie into Christmas? Watch and find out!

"Skinner's Sense of Snow:" Watch for a hilarious spoof of Cirque de Soleil when it comes to Springfield! It's not soon after that an incredible blizzard snows the kids into Springfield Elementary. How do Skinner and the kids get along--or will there be a tug-of-war between them?

This is the DVD's other TV shows should release. Some of us love the Christmas episodes of our favorite TV shows & to be able to put in a DVD & see most or all of them is so much better than going thru a box set & changing disc's for every episode.

Our hats off to FOX. This is a great DVD and we're waiting for the first one to arrive.

I sure hope they change the name of the disc, because 'Christmas 2' just doesn't sound interesting.

Anyway, once again, this is FOX's attempt to suck more money from Simpsons fans while they're waiting for the box sets to release. Also, only two of the four episodes on the set are Christmas episode. So with that, this set's stars deplete. But, these episodes aren't as bad as the ones picked for "Simpsons Gone Wild," so, I'll cut it some slack and give it two stars. The episodes? Well, break it down:

Homer vs. Dignity (Season 12):

Kwik Synopsis: In money troubles, once again, Homer becomes Mr. Burns' "prank monkey" to get some extra cash.

This episode is pretty bad. The plot alone is pretty farfetched and, while Burns provides a few laughs, wasn't that funny. There was a "sub-plot" about Smithers acting in a Malibu Stacey-themed musical. THAT would have been great to see more than a one-minute scene of. But instead, we have Homer get raped by a panda. You heard me. A panda has his way with him. I wish I was making this up, but I'm not. I guess this episode was picked because the Thanksgiving Day parade at the end had the Santa float, in which Burns throws fish guts at everyone. But still, "Marge Be Not Proud" was an amazing Xmas episode. Why isn't that on this disc?

Skinner's Sense of Snow (Season 12)

Kwik Synopsis: The kids are snowed in the school right before winter break, and they turn on Skinner.

Probably the best episode of the disc. There's a lot of good jokes in this episode, although it takes a hit when Homer comes in. He takes a hunk out of Ned's roof to make a snow plow. The two drive to rescue the kids, but hit an fire hydrant, and the water freezes up instantly, and Homer hallucinates about exotic dancers and...
