Mike Scully's reign of terror has begun!

There is a theory that the best seasons of the Simpsons are its single-digit seasons. While I feel that Seasons 10 and 11 are certainly respectable, it is true IMO that Season 9 is the last season in which one could consider the Simpsons truly great.

As great a writer as John Schwartzwelder had become over the seasons, Season 9 is where Ian Maxtone-Graham really shined through with not only three great episodes but also having two of the three that should be in the discussion of the greatest Simpsons episodes of all time. Here are the episodes for your enjoyment.

1. The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson - classic Simpsons episode written by Ian Maxtone-Graham where Homer goes to NY to recover his illegally parked car from the WTC. Definitely one of the great Simpsons episodes of all time. Also the introduction of Duffman OH YEAH!

2. The Principal and the Pauper - the somewhat controversial episode where Principal Skinner ISN'T Principal Skinner but am impostor. Later parodied in Season 11.

3. Lisa's Sax - a flashback episode centered around (you guessed it)

4. Treehouse of Horror VIII - Homega Man - Homer discovers after a nuclear explosion that he is the last man in Sspringfield, Fly vs. Fly - Bart uses a Frink device to morph into a man-fly, Easy Bake Coven - it's easy to see Patty and Selma as witches, but Marge too (check out the end where Homer goes as Princess Kashmir on Halloween).

5. The Cartridge Family - great John Schwartzwelder episode about the folly of allowing Homer Simpson his 2nd Amendment rights. Also, the folly of believing that soccer is an enjoyable sport to watch.

Maybe I'm a moron for owning all the collectible head packs to date but I guess I'll stop with the Bart head. Here is my review from the other thread.

Season Nine of the Simpsons is possibly the best season after Season 4. The entire "Cartridge Family" episode is hilarious, and well worth the price of the entire set alone. ("Five day waiting period??! But I'm mad NOW!")

But nearly every episode on here is just as good, even though there are one or two that aren't up to the high standard of the rest of the season. While it's true that the show is no longer as funny as it used to be, the decline didn't start with Season 9. I'd describe this season as the time when the show peaked for the second time.

The ninth season of THE SIMPSONS, the longest prime time animated show in history, proved to be a turning point season. It was a transition year for the show as many writers, runners, etc. who had been with the show left. Some would argue that season nine was the last great season of THE SIMPSONS for several years until about season fifteen or sixteen. Reflecting the transition of the show's workforce, season nine includes episodes that have become classic SIMPSONS episodes, e.g. "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" and "Trash of the Titans", as well as episodes that were okay, but nothing special, e.g. "Bart Star" and "All Singing, All Dancing." Season nine is the last season to feature Phil Hartman (who was murdered the following summer by his wife) voicing some great secondary characters, such as Lionel Hutz. The complete list of episodes is:

"The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson"--After a late night drinking spree, Homer lets Barney borrow his car. Weeks later Homer receives a letter from the City of New York informing him that his car is illegally parked and that if it isn't moved, will soon be towed. Homer hates New York, but packs up the family and sets off on a bus to the Big Apple to get back his car. This episode has some amazing background and set animation. It's also features the Twin Towers. For three years after Sept. 11, 2001, the episode was never seen in syndication but has since been added back into the rotation. Also, this episode has the first appearance of Duff Man.

"The Principal and the Pauper"--turns out that Principal Skinner isn't the man who he claimed to be over twenty years ago when he returned home from Vietnam.

What's the difference between the 3-disc and 4-disc version?
I have also been trying to find out the difference between the 3-Disc and 4-Disc versions. The 3-Disc version was released in 2011 and the 4-Disc was released in 2007. All the specific information on the internet refers to the 4-Disc version only. Could it be the Special Features?

The City of NY vs. Homer Simpson
Pretty sure they won't edit those scenes, since i've been getting the unedited versions on my local syndication every time they show that episode. Where do you guys live thats cutting the WTC part? Its a pretty substantial segment of that episode, so i'm curious what they show instead.

Maintaining a level of humor that is most notably demonstrated from Seasons 4-8 or even 9 would be difficult for any writing team, especially to continue on for as many seasons as the Simpsons has persisted.
