5.0 out of 5 stars One of the last great seasons of the long running show, December 6, 2006
This review is from: The Simpsons - The Complete Ninth Season (Collectible Lisa Head Pack) (DVD)
As the Simpsons reached it's landmark ninth season, by the time the last few episodes came around, it was clear that perhaps there was a decline happening in the series' quality. The season starts out great however with the classic "City of New York VS Homer Simpson", as Homer and the family go to New York to recover Homer's illegally parked car. That episode is followed by the somewhat controversial "Principal and the Pauper" in which it is revealed that Principal Skinner isn't Principal Skinner, but an imposter, when the real Skinner (voiced by Martin Sheen) returns to Springfield. The "Treehouse of Horror" episode this season is a bit disappointing (it just doesn't have those laugh out loud moments that previous ones had), and also throughout this season, Bart tries out for the Homer coached Pee-Wee football team, Apu (Hank Azaria) worries over his arranged marriage, Bart accidently burns up the presents and blames it on made up burglars, and Mr. Burns takes a trip to Cuba with a trillion dollar bill. The standout episodes of this season are undoubtadly "Bart Carny" where Homer and Bart get scammed by carnies (one of whom is voiced by the late Jim Varney), and "The Little Wiggy" in which Ralph gets set up on a "play date" with Bart. The landmark 200th episode, "Trash of the Titans", features Steve Martin and U2, but this where you can notice a decline in the show's quality. The season closer, "Natural Born Kissers", isn't all that great either sadly, but the good does outweigh the bad here with this season set. All in all, for the most part the ninth season of the Simpsons is the same kind of tongue in cheek humor that you would come to expect, and it's worth picking up for longtime fans of the long running show.
