We all know the many, many problems with season eleven's packaging. To this day I almost never watch that season cause I'm afraid of a: scratching the disks when taking them out of the sleeves and b: ripping the sleeves. It makes me tempted to copy them onto different DVDs so I can watch them when I want to, but of course, Fox doesn't want us to make copies.
We don't know what the packaging will be like this time around, though I am guessing it'll be similiar to the last design, with comic book covers instead of midway scenes, but what we do know is that there are some very good episodes in season twelve! The complete list:
"Treehouse of Horror XI" - The yearly Halloween insanity!
"A Tale of Two Springfields" - A personal favorite! Gotta love the badger at the begining!
"Insane Clown Poppy" - Krusty has an illegitimate child. Only one?
"Lisa the Tree Hugger" - Lisa goes green!
"Homer vs. Dignity" - Homer becomes Burns' prank-monkey.
"The Computer Wore Menace Shoes" - Any resemblence between this episode and a certain 1960's British TV series is completely in your imagination, Number Six.
"The Great Money Caper" - Homer becomes an artist. A CON artist! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ah, I slay me.
"Skinner's Sense of Snow" - Imagine a snow day where you're trapped in the school. Sucktacular situation, but a fun episode! "HOMR" - Homer has a crayon lodged in his brain. Messy.
"Pokey Mom" - Marge kicks it with a fun-loving criminal.
"Worst Episode Ever" - Comic Book Guy falls in love... with Skinner's mom! Terrifying!
"Tennis the Menace" - Lots of tennis. Yeah, that's about it here.
"Day of the Jackanapes" - Sideshow Bob and his boy-bomb attempt to destroy Krusty!
"New Kids on the Blecch" - Yeah, it's got NSYNC, but it's still a fun episode!
"Hungry, Hungry Homer" - When the owner of the Isotopes tries to move them to Albuquerque, Homer rises to the occasion! Pft. Imagine the idea of Albuquerque having it's own baseball team. It is to laugh!
"Bye Bye Nerdie" - Eh, not one of the best. It's a Lisa episode, but kind of, well, lame.
"Simpson Safari" - The Simpsons are goin' to Africa!
"Trilogy of Error" - Three stories meet up together to make for one good episode!
"I'm Goin' to Praiseland" - Flanders tries to create an amusement park devoted to God and Maude!
"Children of a Lesser Clod" - Lisa takes up gymnastics and Homer tries to run a day-care center!
"Simpsons Tall Tales" - a fun "anthology" episode centering around old folk stories and legends.
Lots of good episodes here, I just hope that Fox gives us good packaging this time around! They won't, of course, but I can dream. I can dream.
*** UPDATE ***
Sadly, Fox ignored me and most of the other fans out there and released this season in a format almost exactly the same as what they did with season 11. I'm guessing seasons 13, 14 and 15 will be the same. I'm quite disappointed. I like the show well enough that I'll probably buy these anyhow, so I suppose the fault is mine in to that extent. Oh, well.
It does need to be said, though, that at least the artwork they chose for the DVD folder thingy does look really, really good!
