5.0 out of 5 stars More information on this incredible release. July 2, 2001
This set represents the first of an expected 12 (more?) seasons of the Simpsons to be released on DVD. The current plan is to release 2-3 seasons a year. The second season will be released in time for Christmas.
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.
Specific Contents:
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is... Excellent July 3, 2001
By Joecool
The Simpsons is art at its finest. The opening season is the shortest containing 13 classic episodes compared to 20+ in the following seasons, which will all be released in order eventually. Sure the animation isn't as good and Homer's voice is a little different (even though it is the same person), but these stories are among the best and started the most entertaining series ever. This is the origin of many funny phrases that have become apart of American culture. Also, this will show each episode in its entirety. Syndicated reruns often cut out a few seconds per episode to make room for commercials, so unless you recorded the original airing you're probably missing something.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look at it with fresh eyes! January 10, 2005
Wow. I didn't expect the reviews of Season 1 to be so overwhelmingly negative.

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.
