The Simpsons - Season 17 ...

The seventeenth season of the American animated television series The Simpsons began airing on Sunday, September 11, 2005, and finished airing on Sunday, May 21, 2006. It broke Fox's tradition of pushing its shows' season premieres back to November to accommodate the Major League Baseball games airing on the network during September and October of each year.[1] Season 17 was released on DVD and Blu-ray in Region 1 on December 2, 2014, Region 2 on December 1, 2014, and Region 4 on December 3, 2014.

The Simpsons - Season 17 ...

Al Jean remained show runner, with this being his fifth year in the position since he started it in season 13, while the season was produced by Gracie Films and 20th Century Fox Television. David Silverman was the supervising director of animation. New writers included Patric Verrone (previously a writer for The Critic, Futurama, and current president of the Writers Guild of America, Western Division), Daniel Chun, and Stephane Gillis. During this season, there were no episodes that aired during the month of October.

Seven hold-over episodes from the season 16 (GABF) production line aired as part of this season. One of these episodes, "The Girl Who Slept Too Little", was intended to air as the season 16 finale on May 15, 2005, but after "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Guest Star", an episode satirizing the Catholic Church, was postponed due to Pope John Paul II's death, it was moved into this season.[2]

The season was met with mixed-to-positive reviews. Jeffry Kauffman of gave the season 4/5. He said the season was "arguably an incremental step downward" but he still thought "There are still delights galore to be sampled throughout the season,"[3] Shadowlocked gave the season 4/5 stars. Luke Connolly said that the season did a great job at tying things together and praised "Girls Just Want to have Sums" and "We're on the Road to D'ohwhere" as highlights. He concluded by saying "While season 17 shows its age in certain places, its continual pursuit of originality and familiar comedy more than makes up for this, and one cannot help but be impressed."[4] Fanboy Nation's Sean Mukvihill was positive on the season saying "Even though it isn't as a great as it once was, the show still boast some very clever writing and the best voice cast of any animated program in history."[5] Capsule Computers was more critical of the season giving the season 5.5/10 and commented "As a long time fan of the early Simpsons that involved great episodes with hilarious, tightly developed plots, it is hard to stomach what the show has become."[6] Spotlight Report gave the season 3.0/5 criticizing that it wasn't as funny as previous seasons.[7]

"The Seemingly Neverending Story" won an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program, the first Simpsons episode to win since season 14's "Three Gays of the Condo" and the ninth time in the history of the show.[8] Kelsey Grammer received the Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for "The Italian Bob".[9]

The DVD and Blu-ray box set for season seventeen was released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in the United States and Canada on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, eight years after it had completed broadcast on television. As well as every episode from the season, the Blu-ray and DVD releases feature bonus material including deleted scenes, animatics, and commentaries for every episode. The box art features Sideshow Bob, and a special limited-edition "embossed head case" package was also released.

The seventeenth season of The Simpsons ran for 22 episodes; the first being "The Bonfire of the Manatees" which aired on September 11, 2005, and the last being "Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play", on May 21, 2006.

One episode in this season, "The Seemingly Never-Ending Story" won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming less than One Hour). At the 34th Annie Awards, episode writer Ian Maxtone-Graham won the award for "Best Writing in an Animated Television Production."[1]Kelsey Grammer won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for his voice portrayal of Sideshow Bob in "The Italian Bob".[2] The DVD and Blu-ray boxset was released in December 2014.[3] and also features Sideshow Bob on the cover.[4]

  • 488 -"Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts" The couch gag, which is done by Ren & Stimpy creator himself, John Kricfalusi. As a bonus, the episode itself is done at Rough Draft Studios, which not only does many other Simpsons episodes, but also did a number of Ren & Stimpy's second season, as well as all of the majority of those done after John's firing.

  • Chalmers' flashback to the last time he taught.

  • "If school failed me, does it have to go to Summer Jimbo?"

  • Milhouse throwing the school copying machine out of the window.

Going back further, there's an early episode in season one called 'The Crepes of Wrath', which TV Guide once named the 17th greatest episode of television of all time. It may be the first use of art references in the series, and even the title is a pun on an American classic, the John Steinbeck novel The Grapes of Wrath.

SIMPSONS FANS: please note that in the recorded version of the podcast, Emily mentions that Marge paints one of the Beatles, and says she thinks it's George. While George Harrison does appear in the fifth season episode 'Homer's Barbershop Quartet', it is of course Ringo who is object of Marge's artistic endeavours! D'oh! 041b061a72
