 DVD Review: Simpsons: Season 4
While it had already achieved hit status by the time the fourth season rolled around, this collection of episodes showed the creators going to high gear to create some of the most beloved episodes of the show's history.
The first disc of this four disc set includes some of the show's finest half-hours, including Bart and Lisa's horrific journey to the run-down "Kamp Krusty" and "Homer The Heretic", where Homer decides to create his own religion after enjoying a Sunday away from church.
Finally, disc 4 includes the classics "Last Exit to Springfield" (where Homer becomes a union leader in order to get Lisa braces), "Krusty gets Kancelled" (Bart and Lisa help Krusty put together a celeb-filled comeback special to boost his career) and "Whacking Day", where the snakes of Springfield flee in terror from the town's tradition.
