Product Description

Episodes in the boxed set The Simpsons Political Party are:
  • "Sideshow Bob Roberts"
  • "Trash of the Titans"
  • "Two Bad Neighbors"
  • "Duffless"
  • "I Love Lisa"
  • "The Trouble with Trillions"

Amazon.com

Two of the best politically themed Simpsons episodes, "Lisa's Substitute" and "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington," have already been released on video. But that still leaves this formidable slate of six episodes. Topping the ticket are "Sideshow Bob Roberts," in which Bart's "mortal enemy," Sideshow Bob, becomes mayor of Springfield; "Trash of the Titans," in which Homer, "the last angry man," is elected Springfield's Sanitation Commissioner on the platform of "Can't someone else do it?"; and "Two Bad Neighbors," in which "local oaf" Homer squares off against his new neighbor, former President George Bush ("Then we're agreed; there'll be trouble"). This three-volume set also brings to the party "Duffless," in which Homer agrees to go one month without his precious beer ("I never realized how boring this game is," a sober Homer remarks during a baseball game), and "I Love Lisa," in which a valentine from goodhearted Lisa is misinterpreted by Chief Wiggum's pitiable son, Ralph. By a strictly conservative interpretation, neither has much to do with politics, but why quibble? "The Trouble with Trillions," in which the IRS leans on Homer to squeal on his friends, is a rare clunker, but only by the peerless high standards of The Simpsons. Each volume can also be purchased separately. --Donald Liebenson

Following on the heels of The Simpsons Go Hollywood, The Simpsons Political Party is a good idea gone slightly awry. While most of the episodes included are pretty good, the best ones--"I Love Lisa" and "Duffless" have nothing whatsoever to do with politics, while other, more correctly themed episodes of the series were excluded. Yes, "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington" was included in a previous (non-themed) collection, but it belongs here. And how about the episode where Bart and Martin vie for class president? The bizarre choices made for The Simpsons Political Party keep the collection from being perfect, but no fan of The Simpsons will want to be without it, as even lower-quality Simpsons is better than most other shows at their best.

Don't get me wrong: I loved almost every single episode of "Seinfeld." But I cannot stress it enough - for my money, "The Simpsons" is the best show in the history of television . . . EVER!
Even when he's relegated to the sidelines, Homer Simpson is the glue that holds this marvelous achievement of pop culture together. The ultimate selfish, oafish, boorish, and just about every other pejorative -ish you cand find, Homer's sole redeeming quality is his childlike quality and this, ultimately, is why he is such an endearing character. Comparisons to Archie Bunker are misplaced. Homer may be ignorant, but there isn't a mean-spirited bone in his body, that ultimate tribute to flabbiness.
The episodes in this volume, given their "political" nature, include some of the most subtle, intelligent and all around hilarious writing in the show. That such a marvelous, rich and textured piece of entertainment came out of TV is little short of a miracle. Buy this now and enjoy it in the intimacy of your home with a cool, refreshing Duff beer.

It is true that I am a Japanese anime fan, but The Simpsons is the best animated series to ever exist on this planet. These episodes were one of the funniest episodes that I have ever seen. These are some of the best episodes out there, and there are over 50 of them which are my favourite episodes. I do recommend this video, the Simpsons at their best...and still at it!

This is one product that is worth every penny of the price, and then some! From the 1st episode to the last, every second is pure gold. "Sideshow Bob Roberts" is an excellent play on the Republican party, but never gets too offensive to be enjoyed. "Trash Of The Titans" is a humorous, wacky episode with a classic Simpsons musical number. "Two Bad Neighbors" is a very funny episode, in which George Bush moves in across the street and fueds with the Simpsons. This episode is , in some ways, a form of revenge on Bush, who badmouthed the Simpsons in a 1991 televised speech. Revenge is sweet, and in this case, excrutiatingly funny. "Duffless" is the absolute best episode of all time, and I mean of any series. This episode itself is worth the money you pay for all six episodes! I've seen it dozens of times and I still laugh. "I Love Lisa" is another classic, this time with a Valentine's Day theme, and it has my favorite character Ralph as the star, so I can't help but love it. Finally, "The Trouble With Trillions", while dropping the standard some, contains many funny moments making it a worthy watch. This set is a perfect 10. I recommend it for anybody.

Cast your vote for laughs, man! The Simpsons Political Party is a great source for laughs and fun. It is not that good souce on history; ect...
It's best to get the bad news out frist. The Simpsons Political Party has very litte about the government; in fact it has nothing to do about the government. But the fact that they have to reach out to government makes your laughs limited.
Now the good news. For quick laughs you'll want to buy this. The funniest shows are with Hommer. From being sanitation commissioner, to working for the FBI. It's very funny-) Bart and Lisa are on a roll to. They get to put Sideshow Bob in the slammer and have a contest in science fair. Marge....... she has the house looking nice.
This only half of it and recommed you buy. Just think of the words"It's ok'ly dok'ly"
