Espicially the christmas one. It makes perfect sence (for the Simpsons) the town didn't want to continue being mad at them, so they took their stuff. And I liked that particular dish towel ending.
I do have to admit I liked that one too for some reason--even though I think it basically started a trend of "gritty" Simpsons episodes that seemed to end on a downbeat note more so than episodes in other seasons.

Homer: "Hello...jerk. We may never find you, but one thing is for sure...you do exist."

Kent Brockman. "Strong words. Strong, bewildering words."

:lol:


There are eps I like in future seasons too--particularly the one where Homer becomes a genius. :) It has a really sweet ending, if sad. :cry:


Why else would they call it HBO? The B stands for Batman.


So true. And you know what other Batman movie they constantly show?
Batman and Robin! :lol: :roll:

Wow, its about time the pets get some attention. Thanks for the notice, Vi!
No prob Dan! :)

BTW I like how your sig is from Cinderella III! :)
Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

I think so, Brain, but if we didn’t have ears, wouldn’t we sort of look like weasels?

Maybe because, it was a Christmas one? That, and how they spoofed it's a Wonderful Life again. The first, being when Ned almost loses the leftorioum. :lol:

If anything, I felt the Simpsons always ended in a weired way. Not gritty, but in a "huh?" Way. That's how it felt for a few of the episodes, anyway.

Aww, that was a sweet episode. And again, one of my favorites!

You hit the nail on the head, Vi! When I watched that video for the first time, it really was funny, but it was soooo weired seeing them actually do it. :P

Anyway, I'm with Z about the covers. They are kinda plain, but I really hope they keep the focus of the pets for season 10! It just needs more pazaz and it will look better.

Here's the episode list for season 10;
"Lard of the Dance" - A new student who acts twice her age enrolls at Springfield Elementary. Homer and Bart start a grease selling business.

"The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace" - Homer sets out to become an inventor after Lisa tells him about Thomas Edison.

"Bart the Mother" - Bart accidentally kills a mother bird and decides to care for its eggs. (Fyi, Phil Hartman's last appearance.)

"Treehouse of Horror IX" -
Hell Toupee - A transplant of Snake's hair is mind controlling Homer.

The Terror of Tiny Toon - Bart and Lisa are transported into the TV, on The Itchy and Scratchy Show.

Starship Poopers - Maggie's real father is revealed to be Kang.

"When You Dish upon a Star" - Homer meets some celebrities living in a secluded area of Springfield.

"D'oh-in in the Wind" - Homer becomes a hippie.

"Lisa Gets an A" - Lisa forgets to study for a test and resorts to cheating.

"Homer Simpson in: Kidney Trouble" - Grampa's kidneys explode after holding it in for too long, and as a result he needs a kidney transplant.

"Mayored to the Mob" - Homer becomes Mayor Quimby 's bodyguard.

"Viva Ned Flanders" - Homer takes Ned Flanders to Las Vegas to teach him how to live impulsively.

"Wild Barts Can't Be Broken" - Chief Wiggum places a curfew on all kids, thanks to Homer and his bar buddies.

"Sunday, Cruddy Sunday" - Homer and a busload of Springfield residents go to Miami for the Super Bowl only to find they have phony tickets.

"Homer to the Max" - When a new television character named "Homer Simpson" turns out to be a laughingstock, Homer changes his name to avoid ridicule from the townspeople.

"I'm with Cupid" - Apu has a week of Valentine's Day surprises in store for Manjula, much to the discontent of Homer and his friends.

"Marge Simpson in: Screaming Yellow Honkers" - Marge develops road rage after buying an SUV.

"Make Room for Lisa" - A cellular transmitter is built on the Simpsons' house. Lisa develops stress when she is forced to share a room with Bart.

"Maximum Homerdrive" - Homer becomes a temporary truck driver and discovers the teamsters secret. Meanwhile, Marge and Lisa install a new doorbell.

"Simpsons Bible Stories" - Three stories involving the Simpson family members in biblical situations:

Homer and Marge as Adam and Eve
Milhouse as Moses
Bart as David from David and Goliath

"Mom and Pop Art" - Homer becomes an outsider artist .

"The Old Man and The "C" Student" - After costing Springfield the Olympics, Bart is forced to "volunteer" at the Springfield Retirement Castle. Homer starts his latest get-rich-quick scheme, selling springs.

"Monty Can't Buy Me Love" - Mr. Burns looks for ways to improve his image, by capturing the Loch Ness Monster.

"They Saved Lisa's Brain" - Lisa is the newest member of Mensa.

"Thirty Minutes over Tokyo" - The Simpsons go on a discount family vacation to Japan after they are robbed.
Sadly, this is the season many people consider to be the starting dowfall of the Simpsons, and for the most part, I agree. A little. ;)

Some of the episodes I don't like here, are, "Do'h in the wind", "Homer Simpson in: Kindney Trouble", "Maximum Homerdrive", "Monty Can't Buy Me Love", and "They Saved Lisa's Brain". Their just so blah! :x

Don't get me wrong though, I still like this season. Infact, aside from the episodes I just listed, most of the others I'm very fond of, such as "Lard of The Dance", and "I'm With Cupid" to name a few.

But what about everyone else?

Totally, Dan. :)

I'm not wild about this season either (and that's putting it mildly) but it IS the Simpsons and like you said, there are a few gems in there.

"Lard of the Dance" is also one of my faves. It's so good it's (almost) worth buying the whole season just to get that ep. :)


WISH so bad they had some of the "famous" or at least newer Simpsons episodes like, say, "Behind the Laughter" on itunes, like they do with SP!! :)

Yeah, "Lard of the Dance" was one of the best of the season!

"Don't be such a Phoebe"

:lol:

So you are going to be getting this? Cool! :) Like we said, this isn't one of the best seasons, but its the Simpsons! Even at their worst, their still 10 times better than most cartoon/sitcoms these days.

But I think the reason why, Simpson fans in general, don't this like this season very much, is because when you look back at past seasons, there were probably 1 or 2 bad episodes a season. By comparison, this season has what, 7, 8? (I didn't list them all before) Huge difference!

Thank goodness they improve later on! :)

Many would argue, that season 10 is when it started going downhill. ;)
