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.

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.

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.

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.

Once again it seems like cheaper DVDs arrive with a broken case that leaves the disc loose in the casing to get scratched up. I did not make an issue out of this order but the second time it happened to me I received a refund. The Simpsons is my favourite tv show but I guess a cheap dvd means cheap quality as well.

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.

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.
