Ahoy-vin-glayvin, it's a must buy, ng-hey
on June 15, 2014
Now fully out of their early-noughties rut the Simpsons is back on the up, up, up in this hilarious 16th season. The writing, satire, and general madness is sharp, the characters are all lovable (apart from Grandpa, who is thankfully downplayed in this season), and the guest stars are as varied as ever with Jason Bateman, Liam Neeson, and Stephen Hawking (now becoming a semi-regular) getting in on the action.
A couple of episodes can't find their way and don't know which plot thread to follow but it's my only complaint. The Blu-ray features 3 bonus episodes, in HD, featuring flash-forward stories set in the "future". The picture looks great in 1.33:1 1080p (one of the bonus episodes is in 1.78:1) with DTS HD-MA sound and a few other extras. I'd like for Groundskeeper Willie to be the focus of the next box set.
