  1. Another Simpsons Blog: Season 9 Review Part 1

    Season 9 is a somewhat curious season isn't it? To many it marks the end of the series "golden era". Well you wouldn't be able to tell so based on the episodes on the first disc. The season starts off remarkably strong, while not all of them are classic there is no episode I would call anything less than decent. In fact, there's even a couple I would rank amongst the all time best. without further ado here is my review of the first disc of season 9.
