Since the first season was shorter, this first disc has many extras. First, all of the shorts from the Tracy Ullman show will be there. Also, there will be a "lost" episode included.
Fox must be commended in releasing these discs. When they were preparing to release the discs, they went to the fans, and asked how we would like them released. As season packs? How many extras? How often? Rarely does a publisher care that much.
There are 48 shorts from 3 seasons (1987-1989) of the Tracy Ullman Show.
The first season (1989-1990) includes:
7G08 Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire
7G02 Bart the Genius
7G03 Homer's Odyssey
7G04 There's No Disgrace Like Home
7G05 Bart the General
7G06 Moaning Lisa
7G09 Call of the Simpsons
7G07 The Tell-Tale Head
7G11 Jacques To Be Wild (aka Life on the Fast Lane)
7G10 Homer's Night Out
7G13 The Crepes of Wrath
7G12 Krusty Gets Busted
7G01 Some Enchanted Evening
The Simpsons is the longest running comedy, longest running prime time animated series, and is definately some of the wisest, best written comedy and satire ever put on TV. God Bless Fox for giving them all to us.
Season One (1989-1990) consists of: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire (7G08) Bart the Genius (7G02) Homer's Odyssey (7G03) There's No Disgrace Like Home (7G04) Bart the General (7G05) Moaning Lisa (7G06) Call of the Simpsons (7G09) The Telltale Head (7G07) Life on the Fast Lane (7G11) Homer's Night Out (7G10) The Crepes of Wrath (7G13) Krusty Gets Busted (7G12) and Some Enchanted Evening (7G01).
If you still don't own a DVD player, unlimited replay of the funniest show ever should be reason enough to finally get one. Pick this up when you get the chance, but beware you may never go outside again.
I've discovered something interesting. "The Simpsons" is like politics. Two people look at the very same thing, but come to incredibly different conclusions that seem to directly contradict each other. I'm beginning to understand why Washington is so bitterly partisan. But I digress!
I'll come out and say it: I love these thirteen quirky little films. I know many people have been denouncing them as unfunny, poorly animated, awkward-looking, and slowly-paced. You can make a case for all these arguments---humor is always subjective---but it's important to view things in context. The causually negative reviews seem like an odd case of amnesia. As awful as you might think these are, just 15 short years ago they had critics and audiences alike rolling on the floor. They were, to put it bluntly, groundbreakers. Things have caught up, as they always do, and have made the innovators look old-fashioned.
People begin a television series knowing full well that if they get to make more seasons, the show will inevitably change. Things develop, characters are fleshed out, awkward ideas are dropped, the internal logic works itself out.
What if "The Simpsons" had been a ratings failure, loved by critics and audiences but cancelled after just one or two seasons? This first season would be a cult classic today, and there would have been mounds of unfulfilled potential, something that pervades any first season of any show. Homer can't go into space yet--we've got to get to know him first!
What one thinks of this first season (and what what thinks of the current seasons) depends on what they like about the show to begin with.Read more ›

Depends on whether the originals were done on film, then transferred to video. That said, looking at the first season DVDs... I really don't think there's any more res to get out of the old Simpsons. :)

|Simpsons Season One on Blu-Ray?||
Not necessarily. Whether this is a real listing or not (which might explain why it's taking so long for Season 11 to get released), the picture quality could be vastly improved, as long as it is taken from the original source tapes and not from an old syndication tape. Even if the resolution... Read More
