The Simpsons: The Complete Sixteenth Season

The Simpsons go Frink for season sixteen. The blu-ray and DVD release features the twenty-one episodes from season 16, episode commentary on all twenty-one episodes, three bonus episodes, deleted scenes, commercials, Maggie’s animated short, “The Longest Daycare” and more.

Season 16 ran in 2005 and 2006 and it features lots of great episodes. The twenty one shows in the season features some incredibly fun episode ideas. Among them Bart and Lisa seeing their future selves, Marge entering a cooking contest with her dessert dogs, Homer and Grandpa Simpson smuggling drugs across the Canadian border. Lisa in a singing competition, and my personal favorite Bart becomes a Catholic.

Ranking the top five episodes from Season 16:

The Father, The Son, & The Holy Guest Star

The last episode of season 16 is one of the best Simpsons episodes, ever. The show features Liam Neeson as a friendly Priest who helps convert Homer and Bart to Catholicism. This starts when Bart is expelled from Springfield elementary and enrolls in Catholic school. Marge isn’t a fan of the conversion and an interesting and hilarious feud between Reverend Lovejoy, Marge and Homer. None of it matters, we all worship a giant iPod in the future.

2. The Seven Beer Snitch

After visiting Shelbyville, Marge is faced with the reality that Springfield is nothing more than a town filled with uncultured hicks (hoot hoot hoot, hoot hoot hoot.) To solve this problem Marge writes a letter to renown architect Frank Gehry who designs an opera house. Springfield builds this beautiful opera house, but then everybody realizes they don’t like classical music. So Springfield goes broke and the only way to even things out is to have Mr. Burns buy the opera house and convert it to a prison. Homer gets arrested and becomes a snitch and the rest is history.

3. Don’t Fear The Roofer

Homer has to redo the roof on the house. He happens to make a friend in the process named Ray (voiced by Ray Romano.) The only problem with Ray is that nobody else sees him and they think Homer is having a breakdown. Thinking that Homer had lost it they take him to the doctor where finally the rest of The Simpsons meet Ray.

4. Future-Drama

Bart and Lisa see the future on Professor Frink’s Tivo time machine. In the future, Bart and Lisa are graduating high school. Bart’s trying to impress his girlfriend Jenya so she’ll stay with him while Lisa is preparing to go to Yale. We see all the kids from the show in their grown-up high school degenerate versions of themselves. It’s a fun and slightly trippy episode of the Simpsons and it’s thought of highly enough that they made the season 16 DVD and Blu-ray release theme with Professor Frink.

5. Mobile Homer
Marge and Homer are constantly fighting after Marge decides to pinch pennies. To get away from Marge, Homer buys an RV and invites a band of RV travelers to live in his backyard. The classic part of the episode happens at the end where Bart and Lisa steal the RV to take it back to the dealership.

The sixteenth season of The Simpsons is another great season of TV history. The blu-ray release features a ton of content, some remarkable bonus features, and some great presentation elements. Like every Simpsons release, for fans this is a must-own. You’ll watch it more than enough to justify a purchase.
