The Simpsons

Written by my friend Rico Cunningham:

Twenty two seasons strong and no other animated show can touch The Simpsons. The lovable Simpson family, Homer, his wife Marge and their three children Bart, Maggie and Lisa are my favorite dysfunctional family of all time. I've been a fan of this show since I was a elementary school and it was just a short on The Tracey Ullman Show. Every once in awhile I get a chuckle as I remember Bart with black hair.

The setting of the show takes place in the town of Springfield in some unknown state in the US. One of the things about this show is the characters and how they typify Middle American families. Bart is the black sheep of the family, Lisa the nerdy sister and Marge is the overburdened housewife who tries to pretend that everything is perfect when nothing is. I find the pretense for Homer's character to be just lovely. Somehow the lazy, donut-eating dad with the buffoonish personality has the job of safety inspector at a nuclear power plant. I could probably go on and on about the side characters as well. That's what happens when you go twenty two seasons.

There was a point when I was afraid that they had jumped the shark by having baby Maggie shoot Homer's boss Mr. Burns, but the show has since corrected course. I look forward to watching the twenty third season on
