Default The Simpsons - The Complete Ninth Season DVD Review

The Simpsons are back for yet another season on DVD (get used to that phrase, because we're not even halfway through the series yet). The Complete Ninth Season contains all 25 episodes from the 1997-1998 season of the show that (along with Married... With Children) helped to build the FOX network and also brought animation back into primetime after a long hiatus.

This particular season of The Simpsons could be considered by some fans as the beginning of a "new era" for the show. This is the season where Mike Scully takes over as the show runner (replacing Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein). As a result, the way that the episodes changes a bit from the previous seasons (though change isn't necessarily a bad thing). Although this change isn't as obvious as the change from when Al Jean replaced Scully a few seasons after the ninth season, it is still obvious that things aren't quite the same in this season. Homer's stupidity begins to flourish more in this season than ever before, we see development of characters that were just minor characters in the past (such as Apu getting married), and some of the storylines begin to just get absurd. But hey, if it wasn't for these developments, The Simpsons just wouldn't be the same.
