Overview

Bart, Homer, and the rest of the family are back in The Simpsons: The Complete Second Season. Each of these 22 episodes is presented in 1.33:1 full frame and sports solid colors and dark black levels. Since the second season of the show was in the early '90s, some imperfections abound including grain, dirt, and some bleeding colors. Otherwise, these episodes are all in very good shape. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English as well as Dolby 2.0 Surround in English and French. While 5.1 remixes are certainly welcome, The Simpsons isn't really an effects-heavy show and as such doesn't utilize a ton of directional effects. Overall the fidelity is quite low, though otherwise the mix is clear of any hiss or distortion. Also included on these discs are English and Spanish subtitles. Fox has made sure to add a few extra features onto this set, starting with commentaries on every episode by creator Matt Groening and various other crew members. Each of these are a goldmine of production information about the story and creative process, along with a lot of hearty laughs. Two music videos for the songs "Do the Bartman" and "Deep Deep Trouble" are included with optional commentary, plus two "awards show segments" featuring animated material from the Emmy Awards and American Movie Awards. Two video featurettes ("David Silverman on the Creation of an Episode" and "Interview") are fairly light peeks at the creation process with interviews by Groening and James L. Brooks. Finally there is an extensive still gallery with over 100 images of sketches and conceptual drawings. There are also some hidden extras featuring some weird foreign language clips.

I waited forever for Season Two, and I finally got it on August 6th. I discovered how much I'd forgotten about the shows early episodes. Classic moments like Homer's painful descent into the Springfield Gorge and the debut of Kang and Kodos. Buy this DVD for hours of laughter.

The Simpsons is the most successful TV cartoon and sitcom ever! However, season one had crude animation, rather undeveloped characters, and just not enough of that silly satire that makes The Simpsons a good show. Season 2, however, was when The Simpsons evolved into what it is today. Characters like Comic Book Guy and Troy McClure first appeared, while current characters like Lisa and Homer got more developed, and celeberaties like Dustin Hoffman and Ringo Starr became more common, whether playing themselves or playing new characters. There were more movie parodies and satire in general, and the Treehouse of Horror gave the writers chances at wackier, scarier episodes. The animation got better from the first season also, leading it on the path to being a TV classic. This was the look of things to come, and things just got better. Season 3 beagn to develop secondary characters and took the animation and writing games on The Simpsons to the next level. it managed to stay at a consistant level for several seasons, with more good shows than bad, and just when it couldn't get any better, it did, with bigger plotlines and more guest stars. Recently, the show has been rather hit or miss, but the hits are great and the misses are better than 90% of the stuff on TV! And it might never have gotten this big if not for Season 2.

Better than series 1.More episodes,more laughter.My favourite is Bart vs Thanksgiving.I also like Itchy,Scratchy and Marge and Dancin Homner.But if I had to pick out of Series 2 and 3 I would pick season 3 because it's even better

This is one of the many great seasons of The Simpsons. It has many classic episodes and moments. It was a big leap from the first season and showcased the very first ''Treehouse of Horror'' episode. It is not as great as the next few seasons following it, but few shows' seasons are. This is a must-buy for all Simpsons fans.

Simpsons are the best cartoon family ever! They keep things fresh with each new season, but Simpsons: season 2 is a must have collection of Simpson classics. Even though the episoids on this video/dvd are a little older they never get boring...there are so many episoids on it you never get bored of it. Unlike other movies where you watch it once and after that is begins to collect dust on you desk, the Simpsons, you'll have out and ready to go every day.

As always, the simpsons season 2 kept me and my friends in stiches. Good Luck to the Simpsons staff on the upcoming season!

I thought the simpsons-The complete second season was a great dvd because it makes you laugh and think about your family compared to them. Lisa is a genius,Bart is a troublemaker, Marge is a nice house wife, Homer is a fool, grandpa still thinks he is in the war, the dog is scared and the cat is bad luck! Think you can top that- trust me no one can make you laugh like the Simpsons!

Each and every episode has everything that you could want in an animated TV series. While this show endures an exciting plot it has extremely fuuny scenes; that would be hilarious to any child or adult. I have been watching this show ever since it came on the air 13 years ago; and all of the episodes are memorable. Every episode can be watched over and over by anybody without getting boring; this show seems to get funnier and fuunnier the more that it is watched. This box set and the first season are both must haves by any simpsons fan. They are all classic episodes that you can cherish forever on DVD; and it is more than worth the price.
