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.

... almost everything. This is a comedy animation series, and while efforts are certainly made to create a vaguely consistent setting in which mostly consistent characters live and work, the emphasis is clearly on laughs. Individual episodes must be consistent within themselves, but rigid continuity between episodes is unnecessary. Indeed, additional humor has been wrung, during the life of the show, from the very fact that the episodes are inconsistent with each other. No further "In one episode they say... but then in another episode they say..." goofs can be accepted. See more »
There is one episode where Homer complains about how rich all the people listed in the closing credits (save for one) are. When the Gracie film logo comes up, Homer says, "Don't 'SSSHHH' me, you rich bastard!" See more »
With all my collection of video tapes and d.v.d.s I seem to find myself digging through my Simpsons box, when I need something to watch. It would be hard to pick a favorite episode, because of so many. It would be even harder to pick a least favorite because there is very few that could be less appealing. But boring is one thing that the Simpsons could never be considered. The writers have changed ideas, episode structure, and kept the Simpsons on a continuous exciting adventure. Anytime of the day or no matter what seems to be the mood , the Simpsons is always satisfying to to view even over and over and hours on end.
