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.

The salesman character Gil, who can't catch a break, is based on the character "Shelley Levene", played by Jack Lemmon in Glengarry Glen Ross (1992). It is also believed that Gil is based on Al Bundy, from Married with Children (1987). See more »

Aspects of the opening credits are usually changed with each episode. Elements changed include the blackboard message Bart writes, the sax solo played by Lisa, and most notably the sequence right after Homer gets chased through the garage. Not all of these variations have been included in syndicated versions of the episodes. 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
