"THE SIMPSONS" THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON DVD COLLECTION arrives on August 16, 2005 from Fox Home Entertainment. Showcasing all 25 episodes from the acclaimed sixth season, including Part One of the season cliffhanger "Who Shot Mr. Burns?,"
The classic to clunker ratio is still extraordinarily high, though The Simpsons' sixth season could give some devoted viewers pause. The show that takes cheeky delight in mooning television convention gives us "Another Simpsons Clip Show" and its first season-ending cliffhanger, "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" And, as does Bart in "A Star Is Burns," we should all feel a little dirty at the "cheap cartoon crossover" appearance of Jay Sherman (Jon Lovitz), designed to give a boost to the ill-fated animated series The Critic. But this is just beard-stroking tongue-clucking regarding a season that delivered episodes that rank in the hallowed The Simpsons pantheon, among them, "Homer Badman," in which lust for a gummy Venus de Milo, peeled from the behind of an unwitting babysitter, makes Homer the object of feminist protest and tabloid TV fodder, and "Homer the Great," in which Homer is discovered to be the Chosen One to lead the secret society, "The Stonecutters" ("Who holds back the electric car/Who made Steve Guttenberg a star?/We do!"). Several episodes take their inspiration from classic films and books: Hitchcock's Rear Window ("Bart of Darkness"); Michael Crichton's Westworld and Jurassic Park ("Itchy and Scratchy Land"); and Stephen King and Ray Bradbury ("Treehouse of Horror V").
This season's roster of guest voices is also especially impressive, including Winona Ryder as "Lisa's Rival," Meryl Streep as Rev. Lovejoy's bad-seed daughter ("She's like a Milk Dud," a smitten Bart laments. "Sweet on the outside, poison on the inside"), the late Anne Bancroft in "Fear of Flying"; Patrick Stewart in "Homer the Great"; Mel Brooks and Susan Sarandon in "Homer vs. Patty and Selma," and Mandy Patinkin as Lisa's future fiancée in the surprisingly moving "Lisa's Wedding." There has, of late, been a feud a-brewin' between fans of The Simpsons and Family Guy. Which show is funnier? Has The Simpsons lost it? Is Family Guy a Simpsons-wannabe? Hey; Can't we all just laugh along? Best to just marvel at another exemplary Simpsons season that, to quote Homer in "Lisa's Rival," delivers it all: "The terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles." --Donald Liebenson

As to the actual shows in this volume, there were:
Itchy & Scratchy Land', 'Treehouse of Horror V', Time and Punishment, Nightmare Cafeteria, plus
'Bart's Girlfriend' 'Homer the Great', 'Lisa's Wedding' ,'Two Dozen and One Greyhounds' ,'The PTA Disbands' and so on.
Itchy&Scratchy land was a paean to all amusement parks but particularly the one which was well known to thousands of northeasterners. It was infamous for selling tokens to kids which were useless outside the park and even inside the park for anything.
Treehouse of Horror was of course the usual Halloween episode and, as with all seasons, it was the one episode exercising freedom, with adult plots after they gave a warning to viewers. This episode is as if the Twilight Zone from years ago actually had a sense of humor.
Homer the Great was a parody of the Masons with secret society rites, etc. Patrick Stewart(Star Trek-NextGen) was brilliant as the guest voice for the nominal leader of the secret society who has to put up with Homer's 'idiosyncracies'. It was the 2nd best episode in this season and was a brilliant spoof of memberships and clubs in general.
