right on man! i love d simpsons. i have seasons 1 - 22 i think. i was thinking of buying more but then walking dead and game of thrones showed up so dats where it ended for me (bcoz of d bewbs n sexyness GOT)
it depends, if you're interested why stop. sure it will get pricey, but there are far worse things to buy and never even get a second enjoyment out of it. I don't really have a cutoff for the things I really enjoy, it ended and I paid a lot of money for the stuff regarding seasons. since I can still watch them here and there on tv and I can also obtain them on Hulu and as a dvd copy on netflix, I'm fine without buying them because I'm not that big of a fan but I do like it.
Over the Simpsons 'evolution' there have been production staff that have come and gone (Futurama being the big schism).
However having watched the Simpsons from the Tracey Ullman Show to 2017 It's The Simpsons, when they are brilliantly satirical they are justly satirical and when they are producing filler episodes it can be hit and miss (usually because they divert from Homerisms or Lisaisms.
Ultimately from day one to the final episode of season 29 and the first part of season 30 in the latter half of 2018 if it makes you laugh then it's 'classic' Simpsons.
Tough to say. The DVD menu system gets much more sophisticated on later releases, with the ability to play all episodes with commentaries as well as options like accessible deleted scenes. Also, by the time you reach the teens, you start to get celebrity commentaries. Not all are great, but Scott Thompson, Weird Al, and others are delightful. There are also some interesting insights about everything from episode titles to music selections to jokes that were altered for air.
Same here! I am always disappointed when a DVD has none. Conversely, others like Fight Club and Scott Pilgrim have several. It's interesting to hear from Anna Kendrick that she is also a commentary listener. Given her love for the Tolkien sextet, I assume she has listened to all of the commentaries for them as well. Do you have a favorite commentary? I think mine would be Apollo 13 by the Lovells, with Jodie Foster's work on Contact a strong second.
I don't own any Simpsons DVDs myself, but if I were collecting the box sets, I'd stop at season eight. (Because yeah, fuck Principal and the Pauper in season nine. Also because season eleven is just plain atrocious, and the seasons after that are just dull and unmemorable for the most part.)
That's $360 for 18 series'. Collecting really gnaws at the wallet.
Have you got the special cases? There were some shaped like Simpsons characters.
Looking up home video releases I'm surprised they're so far behind current release but then on second thought I guess not. Channel 4 in the UK pretty much showed only pre-00s Simpsons until late into the 00s because of Fox's tight fisted control. Always wanted new Simpsons growing up never realising the best was being shown and it'd be downhill from there. Anyway, Season 18 got released in December of this year and the show is on it's 29th.
It depends. Do you want to stop at the peak, before it starts to slide into mediocrity? Or are you wondering where it crosses the line into unwatchability (don't worry, that's a perfectly cromulent word)?
The former is harder to pinpoint. I'd say seasons 4-6 are the best, but really anything up through season 9 is pretty good. There's a bit of a decline in seasons 10-15, but still some good episodes. For me, though, the hard cut-off point is season 16. There's almost a night and day difference between 15 and 16. It's like every writer was replaced over the summer by lazy hacks.
