Read Gator MacReady's film review of The Simpsons: Risky Business

The picture is so much better looking than the episodes on Seasons 1 and 2. Like I said, the animation is far more complex and detailed and the show's bright colour palette is flawless here. The aspect ratio is 1.33:1, as drawn.

The Season sets offer all the episodes remixed in Dolby 5.1, but here they're in plain old-fashioned Dolby Surround. This is how they're broadcast on TV, but they do sound better through your speakers on DVD than BBC 2 or Sky 1 airings. The later seasons have superior audio connection and if these were in 5.1 they would sound pretty damn cool, but you'll have to wait...a long time!

As with the Season sets, the extras are slim to none - why do they take so long, then? - and all we have here is a compilation of Chief Wiggum's best moments. He's hilarious, but not my fave. That honour goes to Disco Stu.
