Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 3 - HitFix Picks

13 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Somehow, despite including two different clip shows, Day 3 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon leads us deep into the show's Golden Years, as we finish Season 4, go through Season 5 and most of Season 6, spanning from "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show" through "The PTA Disbands." For the second straight day, we had no trouble picking two favorites apiece and we left out a slew of great episodes including Krusty's Kancellation, Bart's rise to "I Didn't Do It!" fame, James Woods' stint at the Kwik-e-Mart, Homer's trip into space and Lisa's attempts to design a new Malibu Stacy. [The image accompanying this story is from "Marge in Chains" which, if I'm being honest, didn't come close to making our list, but it's the only official image Fxx was able to provide for the episodes airing on Saturday.] My own greatest regret is that I couldn't pick "Treehouse of Horror V," which features "The Shinning" and "Time and Punishment," which are two of my five "Treehouse" segments. However, I stand by the two episodes I chose. And guess what? Day 4 was even Harder, choosing-wise. But that's tomorrow. »

The Simpsons Ending Proposed by Exec Producer Al Jean Is Perfect

23 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Simpsons, TV's longest-running American sitcom, animated program and primetime scripted series, shows no signs of fading away just yet. But if (and when) it does, executive producer Al Jean knows how the adventures in Springfield will come to an end. Tweeting as part of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever marathon—which is exactly what it sounds like, a 12-day marathon featuring all 552 episodes of the Fox series and the feature film—Jean revealed his ideal ending is one very familiar to fans of the beloved comedy. "@EverySimpsons My idea for last episode -- ends w/arrival at Xmas pageant (beginning of first episode)," he tweeted. "Whole series a continuous loop..." True »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 2 - HitFix Picks

21 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Picking episodes for Day 1 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon was relatively easy. Yes, "The Simpsons" was quite fine right off the bat and it only improved as the show moved into its second season, but the fans here at HitFix were able to cobble together a clear list of favorites without any hugely disappointing exclusions. Day 2 was far more difficult. We have five participants picking episodes here and we each snagged two favorites for the day, which stretches from "Bart's Dog Gets an F" through to "Last Exit to Springfield," or from Episode 29 through Episode 76.  I think we represented many of the best episodes from this fertile early period, but if I had been about to select four or five, I could have easily done it.  My greatest regret is that we didn't have room for "Selma's Choice," which has possibly my favorite opening of the entire series -- »

The Greatest Simpsons Celebrity Cameos of the Past 25 Years

21 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

After 25 years of The Simpsons, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who can’t recount at least one joke from the long-running animated series. From Homer’s “Doh” to Bart’s “eat my shorts,” it’s a show stuffed with more iconic moments than anything else. Some of the best, of course, are courtesy of celebrity cameos.

Whether it’s classic stars like Leonard Nimoy or newer sensations like LeBron James, The Simpsons only invites the best talent to join its hallowed ranks. It’s seen Tom Jones performing at gun point, Luke Perry as a sideshow act, Star Wars‘ own Mark Hamill being rescued by Homer himself, and Xena: Warrior Princess aka Lucy Lawless flying through the air. There’s serious actors being silly, talk show hosts like Conan O’Brien getting meta, and legendary musicians — yes, ‘N Sync counts — passing through the tiny town of Springfield. »

Bojack Horseman: dark, funny, and worth your time

21 August 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pete checks out Netflix animation Bojack Horseman, and finds a bold, hilariously dark comedy featuring a cast at the top of its game...

Over the last few years, Netflix has steadily gone from being a supplier who helps us binge on our favourite TV shows to a legitimate producer in its own right. Not content with merely reviving one of television’s wittiest sitcoms in the form of Arrested Development, they’ve gone on to create award-winning dramas such as House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black.

Bojack Horseman is Netflix’s first foray into animated comedy, and it follows a delusional faded sitcom star (the titular Horseman, who happens to be an anthropomorphised talking horse for reasons that are, happily, left unexplained) whose only companions are his agent and on-again-off-again girlfriend Princess Carolyn (herself a pink cat), his long-term layabout house guest Todd, his ghost-writer Diane, and Mr Peanutbutter, »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 1 - HitFix Picks

20 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On Thursday (August 21) morning at 10 a.m. Et, Fxx is going to begin its Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, a showcase for 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." That's a lot of episodes and if you're a "Simpsons" neophyte, you may be intimidated by the sheer avalanche of yellow-tinged animation.  Fortunately, we're here to help. The individual fans on Team HitFix are weighing in on one or two episodes per day until even we may collapse under the avalanche of comedic greatness. And, since we know that nobody can watch 48 episodes per day and remain sane, we'll also recommend an episode or two that you might be able to skip each day if you need to shower, take a quick nap or show love to members of your family.  Check out our recommendations and chime in with your own favorites... Day One of the marathon begins with "Simpsons Roasting »

‘The Simpsons’ Marathon: 6 Things to Notice While Watching Fxx’s 12-Day Run

20 August 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Five hundred and twenty-two episodes of “The Simpsons” shown over 278 continuous hours? Don’t have a cow, man!

When 21st Century Fox’s general-entertainment outlet Fxx unspools every “Simpsons” half-hour ever made (plus the 2007 movie) starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, it would seem to offer an overwhelming task: How can a viewer immerse himself or herself in such a torrent of content and yet pause to note some of the nuances in the stream?

Your answer is here. While bingeing on Bart, Lisa and Maggie in such amounts could make the average couch potato feel as if they’ve been drizzled in butter, cheese and bacon, the simple fact is the series has its Easter eggs and special moments that everyone should at least try to note. Below, a small sampling:

Odd Musical Notes: Sure, Coldplay (Season 21, Episode 11) and U2 (Season 9, Episode 22) have made cameos on the series, but so »

'Saturday Night Live's' legendary announcer Don Pardo dies at 96

18 August 2014 11:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Don Pardo, the iconic announcer of "Saturday Night Live," has passed away at 96. Born in Westfield, Massachusetts on Feb. 22, 1918, Pardo began working for NBC radio in 1944. By the 1950's he transitioned to television where he was the announcer on game shows "The Price is Right" and the first incarnation of "Jeopardy!"  Eventually each program either ended or left the network, but Pardo remained at NBC.  He was a regular live announcer for the network and was the first voice to let viewers know that President John F. Kennedy had been shot on Nov. 22, 1963.   Pardo is best known, however, for his work on "Saturday Night Live" where he announced the show for every season except for 1981-1982.  After the cold open, Pardo's voice was always heard saying, "It's Saturday Night Live!"  Pardo stopped recording the intro live in New York City in 2006.  He continued by pre-recording the intros and other segments from his home in Tuscon, »

‘Orange is the New Black’, Harry Shearer, HBO all win Creative Arts Emmys

18 August 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Primetime Emmy Awards are a week away, but this past weekend the Creative Arts Emmys awarded many of the other finest in television. Among the highlights, Harry Shearer, the long running character actor behind many of the voices on The Simpsons, won his first ever Emmy for Outstanding Character Voice Over Performance. The Netflix show Orange is the New Black also picked up its first three of what may be many Emmys to come next week, including awards for Best Casting for a Comedy, Best Single-Camera Editing for a Comedy and Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Uzo Aduba.

The Creative Emmys even continued the trend of expanding what’s actually considered TV. Oscar nominated documentary The Square, which made its premiere on Netflix last year, won two Emmys, and a segment of Zach Galifianakis’ web series Between Two Ferns featuring President Obama won for “Outstanding Short-Format Live Action Entertainment Program. »

The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

18 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!

In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

Creative Arts Emmys trivia: Bill Maher, Harry Shearer win first career Emmys; 'SNL' extends record

17 August 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Bill Maher and Harry Shearer now have the Emmy monkeys off their backs. They both won their first trophies at the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony Saturday night but neither was there to accept it. -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Maher won as one of the producers of HBO's "Vice," which was named Best Informational Series or Special. He can be forgiven for skipping the ceremony as he had racked up a staggering 32 Emmy nominations with zero wins over the years. He is up for Best Variety Series next week for "Real Time with Bill Maher." Shearer was the only regular cast member of "The Simpsons" to not have an Emmy on his mantle. He has had a five-decade career on television as a prolific guest performer and even a cast member of "Saturday Night Live" for a short while. He won on Saturday »

During this recent interview to promote the upcoming marathon, executive producer/showrunner Al Jean talked about what it’s like to be involved with a show for so many years that they can have a 12-day marathon, that it’s not medically advisable to stay up to watch the entire marathon while it’s airing, that they’ll be running the original version of the episodes, as opposed to the shorter syndicated version, whether they’d ever do a movie sequel, how the show has evolved over the past 25 years, that there’s still »
