The sophistication of “The Simpsons”.
If you don’t know by now, I’m a huge fan of “The Simpsons”. The classic, early years AND the current episodes. I never stopped watching, even during that *very* rough period in the ealy aughts.
Why? Just watch the video below from Vulture which celebrates the landmark show’s thirty years on television (it first appeared as a series of shorts on “The Tracey Ullman Show” in April 1987 before getting it’s on show in 1989).
For more fun, check out this Complex article from 2012 showcasing “The Simpsons” love of high brow art, or “The Simpsons and Philosophy: The D’Oh! of Homer”, a book that critically analyzes the family from various views such as American anti-intellectualism, Aristotle and Sartre, or this Traveller article on the funniest takes on international travel from Homer and co.
