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.

Throughout the run of the series, a cawing crow is heard in nearly every establishing shot of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. (This tradition is parodied in The Simpsons: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bangalore (2006), in which a cow is heard mooing during the establishing shot of an India-based nuclear power plant.) See more »
"In one episode they say this, but then in another episode they say that, and in yet another episode they say the other." As this is an animated comedy series, the emphasis is clearly on laughs rather than logic, and the latter is often sacrificed in favor of the former. Efforts are certainly made to create a vaguely consistent setting in which mostly consistent characters live and work, and some episodes directly refer back to older episodes (often as direct sequels), but rigid consistency of every single detail in all episodes is unnecessary. Well-known blatant inconsistencies even been mined as the basis of additional gags across the series' run, and characters occasionally break the fourth wall to explain this. Any such item will not be accepted on this list, unless it is specifically noteworthy for another reason. Such an exception may be granted for an inconsistency which is repeated in multiple episodes (such as the hair and skin colors of secondary characters, and the layouts of the main landmarks), drastically changes a character's nature (such as Ralphie's school status or Jasper's abilities), or has an interesting anecdote behind it (such as Smithers' skin color).

In the episode "The Old Man and the Key" the closing credits are a parody of the ending of The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), with the Simpsons standing in front of a doorway waving at the audience, while banjo music plays. When the Gracie Films logo appears, Lisa is heard saying, in a hillbilly accent, "This has been a Gracie Films Presentation, y'all". See more »
The Simpsons is one of the best TV shows of all times. It is a perfect mirror of the American culture and has many memorable moments that will always be remembered . I don't know anybody who doesn't like this show, it's impossible not to be a fan of it. You could watch each episode 20 times and never get tired, you will always find a new funny thing every time you watch it
Unfotunatley the show is getting worse and worse with every new season, Maybe it's time to let "The Simpsons" die with dignity before the audience starts to hate it.
My rating: 11/10
