Has anyone not seen at least one episode of this excellent show by now? If not, this is your ideal opportunity to pick up the fourth season of everybody's favourite yellow family. Long a signature show on UK TV channel “Sky One” and recently moving from BBC2 to Channel 4, the show is a rarity in that it appeals to almost all ages and groups, George Bush excluded of course (see extras). In this, the 1992-1993 season and with three seasons behind it to refine the animation and characterisations, the show really started to pick up the pace. Featuring way too many classic episodes to mention and not afraid to take any group, topic or genre head on (as well as taking a trip into the surreal via the ubiquitous “Treehouse Of Horror” Halloween special, which have always been a favourite of mine) there is not a bad show in the season. Even the, normally, heinous sin of producing a clip show can be forgiven of the Simpsons, with the episode “So it's Come To This: A Simpsons Clip Show” being entertaining enough and at least making an effort in tying the clips together. Presented here in their uncut format and with a newly mastered Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, the set is a must buy for all Simpson fans.
