Synopsis


Season 3 starts off with an unusual cameo: Michael Jackson (a huge Simpsons fan) voices an insane-asylum inmate who thinks he's the King of Pop, and who helps Bart write a song for his sister's birthday. As the season progressed, the writers expanded their focus from just the Simpsons family to the entire community of Springfield, a sort of fun-house mirror of suburban America. A number of the peripheral characters get to spend time in the spotlight: Chemically impaired school-bus driver Otto moves in with the Simpsons after losing his job; bartender Moe steals a delicious cocktail recipe from Homer; Bart's best friend Milhouse experiences his first crush; kids-show entertainer Krusty the Clown reunites with his estranged father, a respected rabbi; and mild-mannered neighbor Ned Flanders tries to start his own business. ~ Jack Rodgers

    Third Time's a Charm

    Posted
    AcesWild

    "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.

    Great Simpsons Season

    Posted

    For any die hard fan of the Simpsons this is a must own dvd set. As I see it, the first two seasons were great starting points for the series but lacked in quality and an overall slapstick comedic style. Not so on this set. The third season begins the classic style of the simpsons, with insanely stupid quotes from homer to barts famous eat my shorts. If your a fan of the classic simpsons style, this is the perfect place to start
