The Simpsons: The Complete Ninth Season

After watching The Simpsons for all these years I am really beginning to question whether they really are that different from your average American family…other than the fact that Marge has 3-foot high blue hair, Lisa is an 8-year-old feminist/genius, and the father, Homer, often tries to strangle his son, Bart….o.k. the last thing is plausible, but not the others.
