Best TV Show Ever, Part 12

For The Simpsons—The Complete Season 12 (Fox), creator Matt Groening and Company have yet again given fans of the best comedy on television reason to cheer: all 21 episodes from the 2000-1 season are collected on this three-disc set. Highlights include another hilarious “Treehouse of Horror XI” episode; “Tennis the Menace” (with the voices of Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras and the Williams sisters); the return of the murderous Sideshow Bob (voiced by Kelsey Grammer); and other special guests like The Who, Shawn Colvin, Stephen King, Drew Barrymore, ED Norton, Michael Keaton, and even authors Amy Tan and John Updike. This welcome set (which features the Comic Book Guy on the cover) is stacked with extras: commentaries on every episode, deleted scenes, original sketches, animation showcase, and other featurettes. The only quibble? We’re still eight seasons behind! Step on it, Fox!
