For once, Blogger's targeted advertising does its job (and no, I'm not referring to the Gay and Lesbian Blog list): I was unaware that The Simpsons third season is finally coming out on DVD later this month, but now that I know, I've got to say that this is the best news I've heard in a long time. I don't have TV these days, so I've been working my way through the flawed but worthwhile second season collection for the past few weeks. The second season is quite watchable, but it isn't until the third season that we get episodes like "Bart the Murderer," which I think is the first unambiguously flawless episode in the series. (I'm strangely fond of Fat Tony, who seems to feature in half of my favorite episodes.)
