"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.

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.

I hesitated writing this review because, while I love The Simpsons, I'm not in love with them anymore. I don't want to be yet another fan wailing into the ether, "What the hell happened to The Simpsons?", but yet here I am. Seriously, what happened to this show? It used to be so damn good! Memorable lines, hilarious plots, guest stars that were more than just the flavor of the minute, smart yet stupid humor - it was pretty damn perfect. So perfect that I memorized all the requisite lines and rarely missed an episode. Then Season 12 aired and something changed (some say the decline happened sooner). The feel of the show changed and I stopped watching new episodes around that time. In fact, I haven't sat through an entire new episode in over six years. I chalked it up to me being an old fogey (I did start watching the show when I was in junior high after all), and moved on.

Despite my waning love for The Simpsons, I still remembered to good times we shared so I bought the DVD sets when they were released. I have nearly every season on DVD up to Season 12 (I never really enjoyed season 1 so I never bothered to buy it). After watching the same episodes from Seasons 2-12 repeatedly over the years, I got a little restless and wondered if perhaps I was being too harsh in my judgement of the newer episodes. So I caved and bought Season 13 and 14 a week ago.

Since I haven't watched the show in years, a lot of the episodes from Season 13 are brand new to me. After watching them over the course a few days, I agree with other reviews that this is a pretty average season. There's not one episode that truly stands out. I think some of the stronger episodes in the season are "The Blunder Years", "Jaws Wired Shut", and "Half Decent Proposal".

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:

semantics:
(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.

design:
(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
