Synopsis


The eighth season opens with another trilogy of horror-themed tales (one of which focuses on alien invaders taking over a U.S. presidential election) and a classic episode in which Homer lands an impressive job at a planned community but fails to notice that his friendly new boss is actually a James Bond supervillain named Hank Scorpio. As the season progresses, the writers take the unusual step of letting the residents of Springfield grow and change in small ways: Milhouse's parents get divorced, Lisa shares her first kiss with school bully Nelson Muntz, and the cartoon show "Itchy & Scratchy" adds a new character in order to boost its ratings (this storyline coined the well-known phrase "Worst. Episode. Ever."). Other highlights include Homer's stint as a bootlegger after Prohibition is declared in Springfield, cameos from X-Files characters Mulder and Scully (guest voices of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson), and a notorious episode in which Homer earns the wrath of a hardworking employee who's baffled by Homer's success. ~ Jack Rodgers

    One of the best, if not the best, seasons of the Simpsons. Going into the physical release itself, there are a couple minor flaws. First, like season 7, the outer boxing needs to be unfolded awkwardly on the sides to slip the DVD housing free. Second, the deleted scenes are viewable only by playing the episode with them included and pressing a button when a symbol appears on the screen. It's a disorienting and really flawed system. But minor complaints overall.

    Of a show that put out some incredible seasons, this is my personal favorite. I don't think it gets much better. The bonus features are great. The commentaries alone show that the creators really care about the show

    Simpsons was still going strong in Season 8. Nice packaging and overall high quality, just like the previous seasons.

    Season 8 of The Simpsons is one of the funniest seasons of The Simpsons. Every single episode is laugh out loud funny. This a great DVD set for anyone who is a fan of the show.

    I have the first 10 seasons on DVD but this one was stolen a few years ago. Glad to have it back in the collection! It was a great deal, too!

    As usual this is another great series. A little pricey for a cartoon buy you'll watch every single episode at least three times. Great buy for the family (kind of!).

    Great season of Simpsons before the storytelling got stale and recycled. My fave episode is "baby on board" a tribute to the Beatles!
