Elsewhere, Homer runs for mayor, Maggie gets the chicken pox, Lisa must give Groundskeeper Willie a makeover and Springfield Elementary is segregated by gender. ~ Jack Rodgers

      Worth it, wish they would change their design

      With owning all released The Simpsons seasons, with the exception of season 20, I've got to say this is one of my least favorite releases. The first few seasons were released with a fold out design with plastic disc holders (Which was great), the new few seasons were released with stacking plastic disc holders (which was OK)- and then season 11 went downhill. The releases since then have had great artwork and design yes, but the disc holders are ridiculous! There are just little slits in the fold out 'cardboard' casing to put the discs in. It's aggravating to get the discs out of the casing. Luckily I read on another review for a previous season to put the discs in a paper sleeve before putting them back in the casing. Granted to make it wide enough to fit in there, you have to very carefully sort of rip at the slits to widen it enough so do so at your own risk. As always the discs are great. They are packed with commentary on every episode, plenty of behind the scenes sorts, deleted scenes, and my favorite bonus feature- the episode "The Man Who Grew Too Much" (S25E13). I believe it's a must have for a Simpson fan's DVD collection, even though the casing is hard to deal with.

      I love The Simpsons! I have always been a fan since I was young and some of these episodes stuck with me through the years. Of course this season isn't as good as the old ones but I did enjoy it more than the previous two seasons. My biggest complaint is the terrible cases they ship these out in. The discs were already scratched when I took them out of their slips. Normally you would think with all the complaining over the years they would have done something about it but yet again we get another season released with these terrible cases that don't protect the discs. If I wasn't such a fan of The Simpsons I would not buy these sets.

      Good Simpsons Humor, But too Sexist

      Posted

      I'm a long time Simpson's fan, so I picked up the seventeenth season. The humor is funny like I remember from older seasons, but there seems to be more sexism and unfairness towards females in some of the episodes in this new season. There is a sexist math episode that was so scathing that I had to stop watching it. I remember the Simpsons as having light family friendly humor that is fun for everyone to watch. These newer episodes have made me feel mildly to strongly offended which I'm not used to from the Simpsons. I wouldn't recommend it to female watchers.

      The Simpsons is a great show and this season is no exception. Bear in mind, however, that this is the last currently planned DVD release for the show. They want us to purchase some kind of on demand app for Simpsons episodes, instead. Call me a purist, but that doesn't sound like the best thing for the fans. Maybe if we show our support buying these DVD sets, FOX will change their minds about that!

      The first 10 years of the Simpsons were great shows and so I have collected their season sets ever since those have come out. But as the years went on, so did the quality of the programming. I continue to buy these because I want to get all of the collection but these episodes are not as good as the earlier years. The discs play well and everything works great.

      Mediocre season, Great release.

      While this season is near the valley of the the Simpsons greatest seasons, it is sad to know that this is the last dvd/bluray release the studio will release. I have been collecting all the seasons, and would have continued to do so, because the releases have such great bonus features. I don't know of many other releases that have commentaries on every episode. That makes it worth it.

      Classic Simpsons Content

      Packaging is unusual, outer case has a flap instead of just snapping closed. Inside is also weird, accordian like with discs inside folds. Episodes are decent enough, although I think they ran out of ideas years ago. I've only laughed out loud once, to a Ralph Wiggum quote: "I feel like a chicken already, I made an egg in my pants!"

      I've been a huge Simpsons fans ever since the show came out decades ago, and I collect every season on DVD or Blu Ray. This is the most recent release and has some very funny episodes, but where these boxed sets shine are the special features, especially the episode commentaries.
