"When did the Simpsons start to lose its steam?" Such is a timelessly debated question amongst nerds, and the responses couldn't vary more over the years, from assertions that Mike Scully turned the series into a 'cartoon,' that episodes like 'The Principal and the Pauper' nailed closed the coffin of the show, that once Dave Mirkin rolled in, the series began moving away from emotionally centered stories, even the infamous quote 'Worst episode ever," came from a blogger scribing his hatred for the episode 'Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie," from season 4; but these days most fingers start to point to Al Jean's tenure as showrunner for a clear illustration of the family's fall from demanding adventures that commanded viewing. In 2004, during the series' 15th year, Harry Shearer was infamously outspoken at what he saw was a declining quality within the series over the previous three years. With Season 13, you can judge for yourself, as that is year one of Al Jean's tenure, and would be the first of those declining shows.

Truly the Simpsons has never stopped offering funny adventures for our classic characters, however its tone has surely shifted as time has passed, but as such it has managed to keep itself capable of renewing its palate of comedy and expanding its universe. It has managed to produce great episodes even during this past decade, but in contrast to the consistency within the first ten years, the show has certainly given justification to comparative criticism. Season 13 is filled with humorous offerings and many explore mature and inspired themes like spirituality, medicinal marijuana, reality television executions, and the infamous skewering of Rio. There is a lot to like here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still something for Simpsons fans to enjoy October 27, 2010
Ever since season 9 there have been complaints from the fans about what they see as a decline in quality of The Simpsons. I'm sorry but I have to agree, I love the earlier Simpsons episodes and seasons but that doesn't mean the latter ones don't have any value. Actually I still find enjoyment in watching the show even today but you can't just ignore that the show is not as good as it once was, and that' being objective. I loved the first 9 seasons, 10-12 are still good to me, season 13 less so but is still watchable. Season 13 definitely has some good moments and provides laughs. As it turns out, I enjoy those episodes much more now than I did when they initially aired. The thing is, after so many seasons it gets incredibly hard for a television show to stay fresh and keep all viewers happy, season 13 struggles with this. I like season 13, I do not LOVE it like I did earlier season but that's normal, I'm just glad it's still watchable and entertaining. There's no real problem, a show changes and sometimes it's not as good as it once was. No one is forcing you those buy anything as far as I'm concerned.

Some episodes I particularly enjoyed from season 13 were "A Honka Honka Burns In Love" which had Mr. Burns falling in love, the three story episode "Tales From The Public Domain" was particularly a good and clever one in my opinion, and "I Am Furious Yellow" in which Bart makes a comic based on Homer called "Angry Dad" and gets successful. I thought this season's Halloween episode was average, the Harry Potter story was a great one thought. Interesting to note, this season brought back Homer and Ned's Las Vegas wives and Marge's admirer Artie Ziff, also from this season on the Halloween shows would not be shown in October but rather in early November.

Being that season 13 was about the time I started to lose interest in new episodes of The Simpsons, I was looking forward to this release, but with some reservations. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the episodes are not nearly as bad as I remember them being, and in some (most) cases are actually pretty good. Yes, the plotlines are generally ridiculous, and the episode flow is terrible, but there are still some very funny moments and lines throughout the season.

Maybe over the past ten years or so, I've come to accept that we can't have Season 6-8 over and over again. Maybe my sense of humor has changed. Whatever it is, this season was definitely worth the purchase for me.

Of course, there's the recurring issue with the poor packaging that has to be mentioned in every review. I thought the packaging for Season 12 was a step up from Season 11 (at least the discs didn't scratch in the casing), but Season 13 is far below both of them. They've reused the disc storage idea from 12, but for some reason put the discs in a flimsy box that has to be opened, instead of just sliding out. All of the boxes at Best Buy were already damaged. I also opened the case to find that the booklet for this season was bent and folded, damaged beyond belief for a new product. I see from other reviews that this was not unique to my set. Disappointing.

And so it begins!

It's no secret that The Simpsons fell into a steep freefall about ten years ago. The erratic quality of the show began about 1999, but there were still many great episodes produced in that time. Season 13 (which aired between 2001/2002) isn't a bad season, as a matter of fact it has mostly brilliant episodes, but the episodes which ARE bad, are among the worst ever, and drag the rest of it down.

Of the 22 episodes featured about 18 get a 4-star rating. A couple get 2 or three stars, and the worst of the bunch...get minus infinity. First of all, the episode 'Gump Roast' is a cheap clip show. I think it's appalling that 13 years into a billion-dollar cash cow they thought it was still acceptable to churn out a half-assed episode filled with recycled animation, mostly of things that weren't funny first time around. The other bad one is 'The Lastest Gun in the West', starring Dennis Weaver as a old-time cowboy. Weaver's heart isn't in it, his voice is completely wrong for the character, and the story of the episode itself is grim and depressing. Really not funny. I can't stress enough how utterly awful these two are. The writers try to cover it up with self-referential, depreciating humor, but it doesn't, and never has, worked. They use this cheap trick time and time again and I wish they'd focus more on making a better show than trying to jokingly cover-up their failings by wearing them on their sleeve.

But, like I said, the remaining 18 are well-written, have smart stories, and loads of great humor. Where else would you learn that Otm Shank is the biggest star in India? It's just a shame that two bad shows reduced the overall rating to 3/5.

The Blu Ray looks great in 1.33:1 1080p, with DTS HD-MA sound.

The 13th season of the Simpsons is definitely a deviation from the style of the previous 12. The jokes are dull and hover on the absurd, the plots are rushed and seem ridiculous. Read more

All of the Simpsons DVDs are top notch. They try really hard (possibly too hard) stuffing each season full of extras. This one is no exception. Yeah Siimpsons!

I need help get the simpsons season 13 on blu ray or dvd
If you have a BD player you should get the blu-ray version. Both editions will contain all the season's episodes and I'm guessing some bonus material. It will be dumb to buy both sets because it will be the same thing. The only difference is that the BD will have the episodes in High Def while... Read More

Why doesn't it say "Complete"?
They dropped "complete" for two reasons:

(1) It should be assumed that a season set is complete, otherwise it wouldn't be a season, it would be a volume like the Family Guy dvds. So saying a "complete season" is redundant.

(2) As the season number... Read More

Upscaled or original film masters?
"Animation always is the best look at upscaling work."

Not always. Bad compression artifacts are more visible in animation due to the simple, flat color. Live action or more complex animation can hide artifacts in their more complicated color designs around edges. Visible artifacts... Read More
