Storyline

The Simpsons is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family called the Simpsons (surprise surprise). Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the ten year old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight year old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant. Written by Sam Kelly

Trivia

Goofs

Fat Tony's real name changes from episode to episode, but this is probably intentional because it is common for Mafia hit men (in popular culture, and possibly in reality as well) to have many different identities. See more »

Way, Way, Way past its prime
27 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love the Simpsons. Correction, I Loved the first 9 seasons of the Simpsons. Back then it had to be the most wittiest, cleverest, enjoyable TV show on the planet. It is for that reason that I find myself in such despair now. Let's face it folks the hey-day of the Simpsons was well over a decade ago. Talk about a show that just doesn't know when to stop. It aggravates me to no end to witness the desperate lengths this show goes to year after year. Every show has a shelf life people and the Simpson is way past its expiration date. I truly think that the only reason it is still on the year is force of habit. Both the public and the Fox network are so used to having on that they shutter at ending it. Trust me, It should end.
