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.

During almost every dinner scene at the Simpsons residence Lisa's plate has no meat on it to keep up with her characters vegetarian continuity. 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 complete verisimilitude. Efforts are certainly made to create a vaguely consistent setting in which mostly consistent characters live and work, and many episodes refer to each other, but rigid consistency of every single detail in all episodes is unnecessary. In many episodes, the fact that something is inconsistent is the express point of a gag. Our general rule is that each episode is expected to be consistent within itself, but intra-episode inconsistencies are not being listed. There can be exceptions for unusually noteworthy matters, e.g., inconsistencies repeated in multiple episodes (such as the hair and skin colors of secondary characters, and the layouts of the main landmarks), drastic changes to a character's nature (such as Ralphie's school status, Jasper's abilities, or Milhouse's hair color), or something with an interesting anecdote behind it (such as Smithers' skin color).

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.
