20th Anniversary Special

Review:

Some of you reading this were born the year that “The Simpsons” debuted. Hard to believe, isn’t it? It’s been a rocky road at times for “The Simpsons” but as the longest consistently running prime time animated series the creators and producers of the show have set a pretty high bar for any other animated series to jump over. We get 21 episodes including the classic perennial “Treehouse of Horror”. What’s amazing about “The Simpsons” is that, in many respects, it’s like a funhouse mirror version of every other popular sitcom involving a dysfunctional family. ***

Image & Sound:

As with previous seasons “The Simpsons” looks quite good in its home video debut the Blu-ray allows the color to pop and the series has remarkably good graphics that are faithfully reproduced here. ***

Audio sounds fine with a nice lossless surround mix. While it doesn’t make maximum usage of the format the audio mixers do a nice job of keeping dialogue front and center nicely complimenting the dialogue with sound effects and ambient sounds. --

Special Features:

We get the “20th Anniversary Sneak Peak” as the most memorable extra here.

Final Words:

It does seem strange that Fox has chosen to go directly from season 12 (the last season released) to 20 but it makes sense since the show is making its Blu-ray debut and the series was celebrating the big 2-0. It’s a solid season although as with seasons 11 to 19 many of the episodes are hit and miss but the show is still amazingly consistent.
