Synopsis


The second season of The Simpsons contains the very first installment of "Treehouse of Horror," an episode containing a trio of terrifying short stories that would become a tradition for the show every year around Halloween. The three tales all take place outside of the normal continuity, as members of the Simpsons clan deal with situations out of science fiction, fantasy and horror flicks (the segments were often spoofs of popular films or TV shows). The most-memorable story this time around is "Hungry Are the Damned," a parody of an old Twilight Zone episode in which the family grow suspicious that a pair of seemingly friendly aliens are planning to eat them. Other Season 2 highlights include a flashback episode depicting the high-school courtship of Homer and Marge and an uncredited appearance by Dustin Hoffman as a substitute teacher who inspires Lisa; Hoffman was one of the first in a long line of big-name celebrities who lent their voices to characters in Springfield. ~ Jack Rodgers

    I'm a huge fan of The Simpsons seasons in the 90's (one episode in season 1 that aired in 1989) -- seasons became tired and flat in the 00's and forward. This season is where The Simpsons creators really polished who the Simpsons were/are and gave us, the audience, better animation and voice acting from the previous season -- I'm not hating on season 1, but the program was still developing and finding it's legs. We get the first Treehouse of Horror episode with this season, which is a one of my favorite ToH episodes. There are a lot of classic episodes that are funny, but still manage to have a heart at the same time. Even though this is DVD and we are now moving into the era of 4K, the DVD version is the only version available for this season and it still holds it's weight, in terms of relative quality, for a home viewing experience. There are 22 episodes. I got this for $9.99, and I am totally pleased with it and wouldn't mind paying more for this great season.

    The animation of season 2 far surpasses season one. The content and themes of the episodes pave the way for the comical satire which follows in all future seasons. The episodes of season 2 take on everything from politics to nuclear power to televised violence. It seems as though the creators thought that the lifespan of their show would be rather brief, so they through in everything but the kitchen sink. Bart's character gets an occasional empathetic episode thrown his way, instead of always being a brat. We begin to learn about these characters as if they were people who live next door to us. This is part of the genius of this show. It challenges the viewer, and nothing is sacred. The commentaries on the disk are improving, and becoming more insightful. The packaging itself is silly too. This is a must have season for any Simpsons fan.

    I bought this second season after purchasing the first at Bestbuy and have no regrets. Unlike some movies which get old after the first time, The Simpsons is timeless and Bestbuy offers them at such a great deal that who wouldn't want to purchase them there. Thank you Bestbuy for such a great purchase at an unbelievable price.

    This has the best and most inspired comedy writing ever!!! These writers were taking chances an an unknown quantity. They didn't know whether they would succeed or fail. They set the bar for many of the shows like Family Guy etc that came after. Wonderful videos still make me laugh uproariously today.

    The Simpsons Season 2...

    Posted
    SimpsonsFanatic

    Well others might argue, I love the first 2 seasons of the Simpsons because of the animation. It brings you back to the great memories of when you first saw the episodes. The cheesy animation shows how much the technology has improved, and the drawer's skills have definetely improved. If you are a collector like me, all the seasons are defenetily a need.

    Long road trips with the kids in the Mini-van are no longer a big fight on who gets to choose the movie. Both my kids laugh and giggle all the way to Vegas on our 4 hour trips without complaining. Worth it's weight in gold...And fun to hear all the Simpson voices while I'm driving!

    I've always been fond of the simpsons and so I've decided to collect them to preserve them for generations. This season, as all seasons, are always packed with exceptional content and great special features.
