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.

With the exception of special episodes (such as holidays), the variant ending couch gag, and edited versions, the show kept the same opening sequence for 20 years. It wasn't until February 2009 did it receive a brand new introduction in conjunction with its switch to high-definition. Even then, the new sequence is modeled after the original. See more »

In the musical episode where (the cheesy clip show), Snake does a voiceover at the end of the credits where he shoots his gun every time the music starts to play not liking it. He even shoots the Gracie film logo saying "You too Gracie film dude... Yaaa!" See more »
The Simpsons is a show that has sustained ten years of constant humor. The stories have gradually become better and the second fiddle characters were getting more screen time which translates into a much more realized show. The pop culture references abound and delight those who can pick them out. My personal favorite is the Citizen Kane references in the episode called "Rosebud." Plus, anything with C. Montgomery Burns is hysterical. The guest stars aren't there as a "special appearance" touted by the networks. They actually work into the storyline, and that makes it all the more enjoyable. Where else can you see The Moody Blues acting like thugs in a Vegas casino?
