Due to some holiday mix-ups, I was also late getting my latest Simpsons DVD, but I never miss an opportunity to obsess over my favorite TV show. It will truly be a cold day in my life when they finally stop producing new episodes.

DVD Review: The Simpsons: THe Complete Ninth Season

Perhaps the best feature on this DVD are the advertisements for Butterfinger and an Australian snack chip. Some are quickies and some are detailed little mini-skits. They emphasize slapstick over the referential humor, but it shows how great The Simpsons can be even when they're hawking merchandise.

The spot on U2's appearance has very little of the band. It's more cast members narrating over footage of rehearsals and scenes from the U2 show. The point about rock stars' schedules is well taken, but don't get excited to hear U2 reflect on the greatest appearance of their careers.

More deleted scenes and commentary keep the set going. I can listen to people talk about the Simpsons all day, so someone has to remind me to get back to work. And the deleted scenes are every bit as funny as the shows they were excised from. Too bad there were no "Natural Born Kissers" outtakes. Would have been great to see more of Homer and Marge, but that was such a tight episode anyway, it's already perfect.

Stay tuned for updates.
