Another great season completely worth buying.
simpsonsmania
Maybe not as much as some earlier seasons but for a show that has been running as long as this one has I think it's still pretty good.
K.R.
Do yourself a favor and buy a dvd case the holds four disc to keep them in good shape.

Format: DVD
By this point the series had settled into a too-comfortable format that this season exemplifies.
1. Hilarious first act that is soon left behind by the actual plot.
2. So-so second act that introduces the gratuitous guest voice and expands on the plot.
3. Hit or miss third act that either veers completely away from the general plot or takes the premise to an absurd level. Depending on the execution and one's personal tastes, this makes the episode either decent or awful.

Individual episodes deviate from this at times, but for the most part they stick fairly religiously to it. Did I say the guest voices are gratuitous? The stories should not be notable mainly because of the guest voice. This season leads off with The Who episode (which the commentary reveals doesn't feature the entire group, even as it existed then), a symbol of what's to come.

That said, I still give this 4 stars because of the mostly great first acts, which this period of the show elevates to an art form. The best ones have almost nothing to do with the direction of the rest of the episode but are loaded with great gags, like the trip to the Festival of Books in "Insane Clown Poppy."

Some of the third acts are brilliant, too, like The Prisoner homage in "The Computer Wore Menace Shoes," or the mob family gathering Homer & Krusty invade in "Insane Clown Poppy."

What's largely missing is the emotional core that was so memorable in the first several seasons. By this point many of the writers, directors, and producers who created and cared about these characters have all have long since moved on to other things. The commentaries make pretty clear that the 12th season staff just like making Homer appear as dumb and depraved as possible. "Homer vs.

I know I am not alone when it comes to the way season 11 and probably season 12 will be packaged. In those almost immpossible sleeves the discs are crammed into. Once out of that tight fitting slot, just use some of those two sided sleeves or envelopes you get at office depot.They fit back in between the accordian type booklet just fine. It's a quick low cost solution to the problem. Just thought i'd share that with everybody.

I'm glad Amazon put this on sale because this was one of the seasons I didn't want to pay full price to own. I'd have preferred to get it as a gift, but the Gold Box special price is good too.

This is the last season before the long, dark period of mediocrity known as the Al Jean years. Even in this season it becomes more hit or miss, which some great episodes like "HOMR" (where Homer becomes a genius by getting a crayon out of his brain) and "Hungry Hungry Homer" (where Homer finds out the Isotopes are moving to Albuquerque--and there really is an Albuquerque Isotopes team!) but also some lesser episodes. Though of course not everyone would agree with that assessment. For a complete list of episodes, go to Wikipedia or something and then you can decide whether this is a season you want to own or not. This isn't the Worst Season Ever, but it's also not the Best Season Ever either. By this season they'd started to "jump the shark" and yet it's gone on for another 10+ years, so that by now the poor shark has been bludgeoned to death.

I think this is it for me, because I just don't think it'd be worth it to buy the later seasons. What I always wish you could do was buy episodes sort of ala carte, or just pick those of a season you like and create a disc that way, sort of like a Simpsons mix tape. I doubt that will happen--legally anyway.

That is all.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Inspector Gadget on November 17, 2010
Format: DVD
The Simpsons suffered an agonizing low at the beginning of the 21st Century when the writers got lazy and the show became nearly unwatchable. It's this painful decline that I blame for the rise in the vastly inferior and undeniably ugly Family Guy.

Having never seen any of the episodes as they aired on TV, I only got Season 12 as I already had 1-11 on DVD. To my delight it features hardly a single bad episode and is consistently funny with dozens of laugh-out-loud moments. Absolutely brilliant!

The packaging is just downright awful though. A nice idea, but poor execution. I wish studios would move away from cardboard digipacks. They're just not made to last.

I won't go in depth here about the episodes in this season... anyone who's picking up the DVD set knows about these already. I will say the special edition head box is a lot better than last season. While it's not as easy to get them out of the sleeve as if they were in plastic holders, they made the cardboard dividers in between each disc a lot thicker and somehow that lets the DVD's slide out a LOT easier than with season 11. One disc in last season's set was nearly impossible to get out, but it's not so bad this time around.

It's been awhile. Season 12 is finally on DVD. I was skeptical, but after watching the season, I can say I was very pleasantly surprised.

Two different packages?

Please Fox.....
How about they just go back to doing it as they did before?!?! And re-release 11, so I can buy it. Another option is to release it like so many have in the standard size case with flaps to hold all discs.

Whatever is done, PLEASE don't do the paper sleeves again!!!

Wow, I never thought of it that way........ I was expecting the same crappy packaging that I'm sure we'll see through season 15, and I thought the thing on the back was their way of killing MORE trees to make MORE packaging we'll just dispose of, yet still using the excuse of "green"... Read More
