Rating: 9/10

Corporate Line: Bartholomew J. Simpson, aka “El Barto” and the rest of The Simpsons cast are proving that three’s a charm on THE SIMPSONS SEASON THREE DVD COLLECTION. Following the record-breaking Season One and Season Two DVD releases, THE SIMPSONS SEASON THREE DVD COLLECTION features all 24 episodes from the third season (1991-1992) of the FOX Television Network’s Emmy® Award-winning hit series, and features exclusive bonus material including commentary on each episode, voice talent commentary on select episodes with
Dan Castellaneta and Nancy Cartwright, Easter eggs, commercials, sketches, audio outtakes, a Jukebox feature and much more.

Fans can continue to build a complete Simpsons DVD collection with the four-disc THE SIMPSONS SEASON THREE DVD COLLECTION, where celebrity guest stars including Magic Johnson, Sting, Steve Allen, and many others contribute to the animated phenomenon.

The Good: The Simpson’s third season might literally have been their best to date. A host of episodes prove themselves to be classics. Homer really takes off as the leading moron. When Homer meets Michael Jackson, a fat insane white guy, in a mental institution you can’t help to watch it over and over while laughing yourself to tears.

“Flaming Moe’s” is another classic where Homer creates his Flaming Homer only to turn a slub like Moe into a huge hit with Aerosmith playing his bar. The “Like Father, Like Clown” episode finds Bart and Lisa finding Krusty’s father. Fantastic. Season three is definitely up for an argument about their best season.

The Bad: Nothing.
