The Simpsons (Season 6) DVD Review

One of the best television shows of its era, or any era, The Simpsons redefined the genre of prime time animation. The blockbuster series filled with eccentric personalities from the town Springfield helped propel the rising FOX network from second-tier to the elite status enjoyed by CBS, NBC, and ABC. Its success opened the door for numerous animated series that followed a similar path, including The Family Guy (1999) and King Of The Hill (1997). With some of the best writers in the business, The Simpsons has maintained its consistency as one of the funniest shows on television. And thatís quite an accomplishment given the level its excellence it takes to manufacture so many episodes over such a long period of timeÖThe Simpsons (Season 6) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere ìBart of Darknessî in which the Simpson family is enduring the sweltering summer heat without the aid of air conditioning. When Bart and Lisa beg Homer for a pool, he gives in, and all the kids in the neighborhood raid the Simpsonís backyard. While jumping into the pool from his tree house, Bart breaks his leg. Alone in his room, he thinks he sees Ned Flanders commit a murderÖ Other notable episodes from Season 6 include ìLisa on Iceî in which Lisaís perfect transcript is threatened by a possible failing grade in gym, and ìLisaís Weddingî in which Lisa imagines her wedding in the year 2010. At first, her suitor seems perfect, but his reluctance to accept her socially inept family ruins the engagement
