Product Description

"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

Format: DVD
This is one of the top three seasons (in my opinion) presented in an equally impressive DVD set! This set features cast & creator commentary on absolutely every episode! Also included for every episode are deleted scenes.

Some of my absolute favorite episodes are included on this set.

'Itchy & Scratchy Land' - The Simpson family takes a vacation to Itchy & Scratchy Land. When the robotic Itchys and Scratchys go haywire, the Simpsons must find a way to escape the island.

'Treehouse of Horror V' - features The Shinning (Often referred to as the best Treehouse segment ever), Time and Punishment (where Homer skips through time via toaster) & Nightmare Cafeteria (Principal Skinner finds a solution to his overcrowding problem and the quality of meat in the cafeteria: eating the students. My Personal favorite segment.)

'Bart's Girlfriend' - Reverend Lovejoy's daughter, Jessica (played by Meryl Streep) inspires Bart to act out in an even more rebellious way than usual. Jessica steals the church's collection plate, placing the blame on Bart. It's up to Lisa to reveal the truth.

'Homer the Great' - Homer joins the secrete society know as the Stonecutters. When it's revealed that Homer has a birthmark the shape of the Stonecutter logo he is named the chosen one.

'Lisa's Wedding' - Lisa meets a mysterious fortune teller who reveals what the future holds for her.

'Two Dozen and One Greyhounds' - Santa's Little Helper falls in love with another Greyhound and the two have 25 puppies. The Simpsons are overwhelmed by the litter and decide to give them away, but before they can Mr. Burns kidnaps the puppies in an attempt to make a greyhound skin tuxedo.

'The PTA Disbands' - Bart pushes the teachers to strike.

The other reviewers are upset about how Fox handled releasing this box set in this format. I don't think this is the place to strike out at Fox about that. I read these reviews to find out if I want to buy the item. This box set has the same content as the Homer head, but you don't have to buy the Homer head. Sounds like a good deal to me! I'm sorry for those who bought theirs early, but that doesn't make this a one-star item, by any stretch of the imagination. The Simpsons DVD sets are consistently high quality items, jam-packed with extras, commentaries, etc.

I understand why people are pissed and they probably have a right to be. But why give this DVD set a one star rating? Because you're mad? As the other reviewer said this is not the place to lash out at Fox. This is a five star DVD set on all accounts. Would you rather just never have this official box set available? At least they heard the voice of the public and tried to solve the problem, that's more than most companies would do. Better late than never. If you don't like your Homer head then sell it on eBay and buy the promo/w t-shirt at Wal-Mart while you still can for only $21 bucks! If it means that much to you to have matching set just pay the $21. God knows you got your $35 bucks worth of viewing pleasure over this two year period.

(To those confused about the debacle I'm referring to, let me explain. The first release of this DVD set was packaged in a plastic container of Homer's head. The problem with this is that it looks very out of place on a shelf with the previous card box sets. And for anal retentive people like myself that's a big no-no. So up until this last month it was the only option other than the one Fox gave to fans so they could send in for a mail-in replacement case that fits the format of the earlier season releases. Many fans had issues receiving this replacement. But now since this new official box-set has been released those people are upset. Thus all the one-star reviews. However, I assure you this is a five-star DVD set.)

I work in a music store and had the package in my hands tonight. The case is made of cheap, *cheap* plastic, hinged at the bottom in a clamshell design, and held together with nothing more than tape, which means that shoplifting of the DVDs is going to be a major concern with retailers. The head is covered in a plastic slipcase that mimics the previous seasons' design on the side. The slipcase doesn't fit very well, and doesn't improve the look of the case at all.

There is NO second box inside. However-- here's the good news. There is a card inside the box with a phone number you can call to get a regular box for the discs-- this is probably where the "Green box" pictures have come from. The clamshell won't last very long-- the plastic isn't sturdy enough-- so I suspect many, *many* people will be taking advantage of this offer sooner or later.

Worst. Packaging. Ever. But at least we can send off for a real box. Hopefully they won't repeat this nonsense.

Who could complain about The Simpsons sixth season finally being available on DVD? Me, a little bit. I must complain about the completely unnecessary packaging gimmick. Why do the fools marketing this stuff think that a holding-case in the shape of Homer's head is more likely to make me buy this DVD set over, say, a set with a case that conforms with all the previous seasons? I mean, really, why would I want to be able to put season six on the same shelf as the rest of my Simpsons DVD collections? I guess I'm just weird that way. Seriously, marketing geniuses, if I bought all the rest of the DVD sets, why wouldn't I buy this one too? And if I hadn't bought all the rest, do you really think a case shaped like Homer's head is going to make any difference? I guess it's my rant about what these marketing "creative" types refuse to believe: Familiarity is preferable to "New & Improved." Other than the case debacle though, the DVD set and all the extras are "Super Nintendo Chalmers."
