Although it's the weakest of the first nine seasons, it's still great! Even if they aren't the greatest episodes, the characters remain just as strong, unlike later seasons where the identities are lost and are just given whatever personality suits the plot. Which isn't necessarily bad. Some of my favorite episodes are The Cartridge Family, Das Bus, The Joy of Sect, and the Trouble with Trillions. The best thing about the Simpsons DVDs is the commentary, which is why I'm giving this 5 stars. They give you a great insight into the episodes and make you appreciate them a lot more. It's by the guys who make the Simpsons, so you can expect them to be funny!
