Brilliant half hour escapism

Not on more often, during the day

Let me begin by saying that although this category comes under 'BBC2' followers will know that this changed to Chennel 4 many moons ago. I was not given the option of altering this, so have carefully placed this review here. The cartoon world's first dysfunctional family which has been aired for...

“Last Exit to Springfield”

published 03/11/2003

Woo Hoo!

Doh!

I am going to make a bold statement here and say that The Simpsons is quite possibly the best television program ever to grace the goggle box. I doubt if there are many people who are not familiar with the images of at least one member of this dysfunctional cartoon family. The Simpsons started...

“Ehhxcellent”

published 01/07/2002

The funniest prime time cartoon ever. Period.

Running out of steam? Can we have the movie now?

The Simpsons now finds itself in its 14th season in the States, with over 300 episodes, which makes it 12 years old. Actually, if you count The Simpsons origin on The Tracy Ullman Show as 5 minutes shorts, it's actually 15 whole years of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and the residents of...

umm... err... DOH!

In the ten years The Simpsons has been running, it has always been the funniest and best written cartoon-comedy series on television. The Simpson family have become one of the most famous cartoon families in the world, and their catch phrases just as famous. 'Doh!', 'Eat my shorts!', and 'Simpson...

So funny and everything is great.

Nothing.

Simpsons The Simpsons is my Favourite T.V program it is very funny and the characters are just so normal. They aren’t that normal otherwise the show would be so boring. The Show is based around a American family and shows there rather extreme life. There are 5 members in the family: 1...

“YELLOW PEOPLE RULE THE WORLD”

published 07/09/2000

Everything.

None.

Since their beggining The Simpsons have taken the world by storm. Matt Groening based it on his family with father Homer, mother Marge, sister Lisa and Maggie. The only difference is that he changed himself into Bart to make it less obvious. It was first just a small strip on a show only a couple...

“IN a class of there own”

published 17/08/2000

One of the best things on Tv

lots of repeats

The simpsons will stand out as the best animated series ever. the first time I saw it I though it was just another cartoon but how wrong I was it goes beyond being a cartoon its a kind of soap opera but a very addictive one. I can most identify with Homer as he's the kind of person we would all...

“Homer Simpson for president”

Weird, whacky, wonderful and very very funny

None to be found

In the 60's we had The Flinstones, 'The Modern Stone Age Family', and shortly after their futuristic adaptation, The Jetsons, but in the 90's we had something very different dominating our screens with stories of American family life as she is to be enjoyed. While The Flinstones and The Jetsons...

fun for all the family

repeats often shown

The Simpsons is one of my favourite programs, and is my favourite cartoon. It was recently voted the ‘best kids show ever’ on the channel four show, but I’m not sure it should be rated as a kids show. It is a cartoon, which I suppose is why they counted it as a kids show, but it...

too many repeats shown on BBC2 but I'd still watch...

Mustn't the Simpsons be one of the funniest cartoons around? The writers are so gifted at making the cartoon appeal to, not just kids, but a much wider audience and everybody I know loves it. The series revolves around the Simpson family - Homer and Marge and their three kids - Bart, Lisa and...
