Many of the episodes from this season remain among my all time favs. I'm particularly fond of Bart's pride in getting a grade of D-minus at the end of "Bart Gets an F"; the debut of the ever-slobbering Kang and Kodos in the first annual Treehouse of Horror episode; Homer almost making it across Springfield Gorge on Bart's skateboard; Mr.Burns taking a reluctant bite of Blinky, the three-eyed fish; Maggie bonking Homer with a mallet after watching an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon; Bart going to Hell in "Bart Gets Hit by a Car"; and the flashback scene in "The Way We Was", when Homer catches his first glimpse of Marge in high school (she was hot).
So put on a ratty old Simpsons t-shirt, grab a bowlful of heavily-salted snacks, and sink into the couch for a marathon of Simpsons classics. Enjoy!

Regarding this particular episode, I think this is one of the greatest "Simpsons" ever, containing some really hilarious lines (e.g., Dr. Hibberts saying "You have 24 hours to live--well, 22. I'm sorry I kept you waiting so long." then Homer launching into a riff on Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's five stages of grief) and also a surprisingly profound exploration of what matters in life. Well, in Homer's life, anyway. If it's good enough to show upper division college students, it's good enough for you, no matter who you are.
In fact, the so-called extras consist of a few Butterfinger commercials, some embarrassingly bad footage of the Bartman video, and a hodge-podge of old promotional materials. There are also "director commentaries, but a significant portion of those tracks are taken up by Matt Groening et al either a. laughing, or b. quietly enjoying their work.
Ultimately, what this set comes down to is the episodes. They look and sound fantastic, and they contain a lot of material that hasn't shown up in syndication for years. The series really hit its stride in the second season: the characters are more clearly defined and start to sound "normal", the animation improves drastically, and the humor becomes much more sophisticated. For these reasons alone, the set is more than worth owning, especially to a die-hard fan. But the fact of the matter is that Fox has been incredibly lazy about assembling these compendiums; considering the overwhelming lack of additional features, there's no reason why they shouldn't have twice as many seasons out by now. I think most fans would be more than happy to buy each season without any extra features, and pay a little less, especially considering the extras are pretty lame to begin with.
To conlude: buy this because you love The Simpons, not because you are a DVD aficionado who loves special features.
