5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious
I loved "The Simpsons" right from the first episode I ever watched (1997's "The Cartridge Family"), and I already have the first season on dvd (hope to be getting the other 2 really soon). Anyway, I got "Christmas With The Simpsons" on Christmas, and I admit that I hadn't laughed that hard in ages. The show's witty humor comes out full -...

3.0 out of 5 stars The forever arguable Greatness of Simpsons
Okay, basically there are three really good episodes on this DVD, and two somewhere between okay and good. There are two episodes with obvious relevance to Christmas, one where Christmas comes in in the middle, one where the only connection is the snow on the ground.
"Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire"- 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. It's the first half hour...

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome for those of us without Fox/Sky, Nov. 19 2003
This review is from: The Simpsons: Christmas (Bilingual) (DVD)
I am quite prepared to admit that it is annoying Fox leave such a long time between season sets, and so it is actually a good thing to have this. All the episodes are classics, especially the two newer ones (Grift of the Magi, She of Little Faith), and for those of us in the UK without Sky it is VERY WELCOME to get some episodes from beyond year 10. This is probably true in most other countries apart from the USA. The episodes themselves are great, it's nice to see them without breaks, aerial problens etc., so unless you have Fox, Sky or equivalent, buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Un bon divertissement des fêtes, Nov. 29 2004
This review is from: The Simpsons: Christmas (Bilingual) (DVD)
La bande sonore française (québécoise) n'est disponible que pour les 4 premiers épisodes et non pou les 5. La qualité visuelle du premier épisode laisse à désirer, mais n'oubliez pas que c'est le tout premier épisode de la série. L'achat vaut quand même la peine pour les fans des Simpsons.
1. Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire (Homère au nez rouge)
2. Mr. Plow (Le chasse-neige)
3. Miracle On Evergreen Terrace (Noël d'enfer)
4. Grift Of The Magi (Le Père Noël est un escroc)
5. She Of Little Faith (Sans foi ni toit)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Christmas-y, Nov. 23 2003
This review is from: The Simpsons: Christmas (Bilingual) (DVD)
Fox really should have planned this DVD better. The first episode on it, the ancient 'Simpsons Roasting Over An Open Fire', is already on the Season 1 box set so why would we want it on this? 'Mr Plow' will be on the Season 4 set and really has nothing to do with Christmas aside from the fact that there is snow in the background. 'Miracle on Evergreen Terrace' is a good episode tho despite the stupid ending, which has become mandatory in recent seasons. 'The Grift of Magi' is another recent episode that is more full of cynicism and forced attempts at satire than an actual story. There are some laughs but I feel guilty watching any recent Simpsons as it has LONG lost its charm. 'She of Little Faith' is an episode starring Richard Gere as himself and has NOTHING to do with Xmas at all until the last few minutes.
I'm very disappointed with this DVD. Fox could have selected the episodes better. Such us 'Marge Be Not Proud' when Bart is caught shoplifting. That could have been included instead of the incredibly old first episode. Its mere presence reduces the value of this DVD severely.
The DVD is in 1.33:1 as drawn with Dolby 2.0. The only extra is a 'Best of Mr Burns clip' which shows all the worst bits of Mr Burns strangely enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet another Simpsons DVD...with poor picture quality, Dec 23 2003
This review is from: The Simpsons: Christmas (Bilingual) (DVD)
It's a good collection for loyal Simpsons fan. For the low price, you can't really complaint. Fox tries to make money off the Simpsons left and right. This is just one of dozens of DVDs released in the near future. However many viewers will find, like the already realsed Simpsons box sets, the picture quality just doesn't measure up. It looks more like VHS quality than DVD. Just want to say to Fox...please re-digitalize the picture before releasing them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, Nov. 24 2007
This review is from: The Simpsons: Christmas (Bilingual) (DVD)
I was - to put it mildly - delighted to receive this as a Christmas present, being a massive fan of the show. Even though I'd seen the episodes featured, they are so packed with jokes and layers of humour that you'll probably miss something the first time and notice it the next. The makers are absolute geniuses and they always deliver! Long Live The Simpsons, it'd be once and for all a dull world without it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, unless you're giving a gift, Dec 21 2003

If you're looking for a gift for your favorite Simpson's fan, this is a good gift. If you're a Simpsons fan shopping for yourself, don't bother. The only extra is the "Best of Burns" which doesn't include any of the best of Burns.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea , poorly executed, Nov. 30 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Simpsons: Christmas (Bilingual) (DVD)
This disc was a good idea but poorly executed. I seem to remember a simpsons christmas episode where bart burns all the presents. That was a good episode and wasn't on the disc.
