The Simpsons (Season 5) DVD Review
If you’ve never been to Springfield, then you haven’t experienced one of the most entertaining and witty shows in television history. The Simpsons is unrivaled in its satirical quality and is quite possibly one of the funniest shows in television history. It’s already the longest-running prime time series. Long before Seinfeld redefined the traditional sitcom, The Simpsons transformed the animated genre into a ratings boon once again. Its success opened the door for a number of great series such The Family Guy, Futurama, and King Of The Hill. With an endless number of crazy and eccentric characters, The Simpsons is one of the funniest shows you will ever see… The Simpsons (Season 5) DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere “Homer’s Barbershop Quartet” in which Homer tells Bart and Lisa the story of his early brush with fame as a member of “The Be Sharps” – a barbershop quartet composed of Homer, Principal Skinner, Apu, and Barney (who replaced Chief Wiggum at the request of a music rep).
The Be Sharps take the world by storm, performing for President Reagan and Johnny Carson. Eventually, the band is destroyed by Homer’s bad song writing and Barney’s new Asian girlfriend… Other notable episodes from Season 5 include “Rosebud” (a satire of Citizen Kane, but with Mr. Burns in the starring role) and “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy” in which Lisa protests the stereotypical and sexists remarks made by a talking Malibu Stacy doll (her efforts eventually lead to a new product design which bombs in the marketplace)… Below is a list of episodes included on The Simpsons (Season 5) DVD: Episode 82 (Homer’s Barbershop Quartet) Air Date: 09-30-1993 Episode 83 (Cape Feare) Air Date: 10-07-1993 Episode 84 (Homer Goes to College) Air Date: 10-14-1993 Episode 85 (Rosebud) Air Date: 10-21-1993 Episode 86 (Treehouse of Horror 4) Air Date: 10-28-1993 Episode 87 (Marge on the Lam) Air Date: 11-04-1993 Episode 88 (Bart’s Inner Child) Air Date: 11-11-1993 Episode 89 (Boy Scoutz N’ the Hood) Air Date: 11-18-1993 Episode 90 (The Last Temptation of Homer) Air Date: 12-09-1993 Episode 91 ($pringfield) Air Date: 12-16-1993 Episode 92 (Homer the Vigilante) Air Date: 01-06-1994 Episode 93 (Bart Gets Famous) Air Date: 02-03-1994 Episode 94 (Homer and Apu) Air Date: 02-10-1994 Episode 95 (Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy) Air Date: 02-17-1994 Episode 96 (Deep Space Homer) Air Date: 02-24-1994 Episode 97 (Homer Loves Flanders) Air Date: 03-17-1994 Episode 98 (Bart Gets an Elephant) Air Date: 03-31-1994 Episode 99 (Burns’ Heir) Air Date: 04-14-1994 Episode 100 (Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song) Air Date: 04-28-1994 Episode 101 (The Boy Who Knew Too Much) Air Date: 05-05-1994 Episode 102 (Lady Bouvier’s Lover) Air Date: 05-12-1994 Episode 103 (Secrets of a Successful Marriage) Air Date: 05-19-1994.
