"The Simpsons 3rd Season" boxed set is what we've all come to expect from Matt Groenig and company: an insight into the minds and expectations of the people who plot to menace us with this little yellow family every week. The special features include some interactive sketches, commentary for each episode, and even a Simpsons jukebox. The episodes themselves explore themes usually left for high-minded tv dramas, films, plays and literature. You already know the series or you wouldn't be skimming this. This show's satire hits everything it aims for, including religion, marital infidelity, family, friendship and even organized crime (in that Simpsons way, of course). In 1991 (the season this boxed set aired), when the zealots were screaming that Bart is not a good role model, the show is politically incorrect, etc., little did we know that this 'cartoon' would become an institution all its own. This 3rd season set the groundwork for what The Simpsons does best--original musical numbers, special guest voices who utter more than a sentence, and the contradictions of modern views of world religions. The Simpsons is perhaps the most respectful series about religion ever on television. Many don't see that. The episode Homer Alone defines it, and the 2007 movie punches it home. This box set of Season 3 is a must for your collection. The episodes can be viewed several times for the pop culture references alone. Take the season home with you. Enter Springfield, the land of yellow people and overbites.
