Broadcast in 1995, season seven features several signature episodes, including Part II of "Who Shot Mr. Burns," "Bart Sells His Soul," and "Two Bad Neighbors" where former President George Herbert Walker Bush moves into the neighborhood (an episode gamely playing on the former Presidents open dislike for the show). One of The Simpsonss most definitive episodes, "Treehouse of Horror VI" famously broke the third wall by using the then-groundbreaking CGI technology to render Homer first in a 3-D world, then in real life, (despite the evolution in his form, he naturally ends up in an erotic cake shop). As the producers openly note on the commentary, it was a big deal at the time, and super expensive, which is why they could only do a few minutes of footage in CGI (some fans will particularly enjoy the revealing commentary on this one, as the producers explain the many visual puns and math jokes appearing in the background of the 3-D world). Its a great example of how The Simpsons continued to play with its visual style and take creative risks years into its run. In fact, one of the best episodes on this collection, "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" proves just how far the look and style of the show really came during that time. Hosted by actor Troy McClure (voiced by the late comic great Phil Hartman), it presents never-before-seen outtakes and original footage from the shows debut days on The Tracey Ullman Show, while taking a few self-referential digs at show creators Matt Groening, James Brooks, and Sam Simon. Other gems include "Homerpalooza" where Homer thanks guests The Smashing Pumpkins for their gloomy music because it has made his kids "stop wishing for a future I cant possibly provide," and "Bart the Fink" where Bart inadvertently gets Krusty the Klown busted for tax "avoision."
Along with the 25 episodes there are extensive commentaries, featurettes, and deleted scenes all of which add immense value to the set and will give die-hard fans another excuse to spend more hours in front of the TV. Its another benchmark collection from a show that, up to this point, doesnt seem to know its own limits. --Dan Vancini

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Two): The classic ending to the two-parter. With all that Simpsons DNA evidence, it's obvious who did it, right?Read more ›
Wanting to be able to stack my boxes, or at the very least, line them up on a shelf, I opted for the plain box. If you got the alternate box for Season Six, Season Seven's box follows suit in design, with a hole cut out for an eye to peek through (in this case, Marge).
A lot has improved. The case's style is better, and is less prone to loose DVDs like Seasons 1-5. The booklet now sports scenes from the actual episodes, as opposed to just a character shot or two. Very easy to just glance through the booklet, and know what episodes are there.
As far as the DVDs interface is concerned, it's nice. When you select an episode, and the menu comes up, a scene plays in the background. Nice touch. Special features aren't as plentiful as previous seasons, though that's not really terrible, just not as much as before. I really enjoyed the animatics from previous seasons, and I was a bit disappointed to not find one here. Commentary is great.
Episode-wise, this has some gems. King Sized Homer, where homer purposely gains 61 pounds to get on disability for obesity, the conclusion to Who Shot Mr. Burns, which has some great commentary on what happened with the contest. My favorite episode, 22 Short Films About Springfield, is also here, and the 138th episode spectacular, which is a great clip show (not many series can even boast a good clip show) It's got quite a few classics.
You really will enjoy this if you're a Simpsons fan. If you haven't been watching the series since season 1, and this may be your first time viewing season 7 material unedited, do pick this up. It's a great showing of the Simpsons at its prime
If you buy only one season of the Simpsons, this is the one to get.

For me it has got to be 'Last Exit to Springfield' where Homer becomes union president. The best line in the episode is from Kent Brockman, "I am joined tonight by union kingpin, Homer Simpson..." Hilarious.
