Swimming With the Sharks on 'The Simpsons'On an Earth Day-themed episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on Fox), Homer decides to become more ecologically conscious. Of course, this eventually results in him falling off a boat and being surrounded by deadly sharks. Why "of course"? Because when Homer Simpson is involved, any seemingly good idea will always lead to danger and disaster.

'The Simpsons' - 'Chief of Hearts' Recap

(S21E18) Homer Simpson and Clancy Wiggum becoming BFFs should have been comedy gold; instead, this episode of 'The Simpsons' was a colossal bore. It seems like everything hilarious you can do with the Springfield police -- high-speed car chases, putting squirrels down your pants for the purpose of gambling -- has already been done. They never even go out for donuts!

'The Simpsons' - 'The Greatest Story Ever D'Ohed' Recap

'The Simpsons' - 'The Greatest Story ever Doh'd'(S21E16) It's always tricky to try and mix comedy with Jerusalem. Unless you're willing to throw caution to the wind and risk offending various religious groups and individuals, you almost always wind up with something that's bland and lame. For 'The Simpsons,' cutting edge and risque seems to be a thing long in their past, and the latter product is what we got.

Everything from Sacha Baron Cohen's aggressive tour guide to the jokes and the storyline in general didn't work this week. I'm not sure if it's because the writer, Kevin Curran, was trying too hard not to offend Muslims, Jews or Christians, but he wound up wringing every bit of humor out of the episode.

Normally, at least one or two jokes can hit, even in a bad episode of 'The Simpsons,' but this one actually got painful to continue sitting through.

Homer Unites Religions Through Peace and Chicken on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

Peace and Chicken on 'The Simpsons'Now that the religious holidays of Easter and Passover are upon us, we may find ourselves in need of a little spiritual guidance. Luckily, as always, we can look to one man. And that man is -- Homer Simpson.

On the latest episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on Fox), Homer finds himself in the holy city of Jerusalem. There, he has a vision of himself as the Messiah, and takes it upon himself to unite all the warring religious faiths. So naturally, he then gives a confusing, yet rousing speech.

'The Simpsons' - 'Postcards from the Wedge' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 15th 2010 8:15AM
The Simpsons(S21E14) I bet the newspaper industry was thrilled with this episode. While we're living in an era where the daily print newspaper is on the decline, we learned that in the future, people will get six daily editions of the newspaper -- and yet the fashions of the 1950s and early 1960s will still be all the rage, including dutiful wives and chain-smoking.

The opening and closing segments of this episode, which only tangentially had anything to do with the real plot of the episode, reminded me a lot of the old Warner Bros. shorts where they would take a look into a speculative future based on 1940s ideals and values. This interlude was every bit as fun as those, and I found myself disappointed when it ended as a video shown in Mrs. Krabappel's class that even she didn't understand.

Once we got into the meat of the episode, it actually touched on an issue that's pretty serious for most parents: what happens when the two of you disagree on how to deal with a child disciplinary issue.

Review: The Simpsons - Once Upon a Time in Springfield

The Simpsons: Once Upon a Time in Sprinfield
(S21E10)
Touted as the 450th episode of the series, this episode was a Krusty-centric episode. Billed as part of The Simpsons 20th anniversary celebration, "Once Upon a Time in Springfield" was followed by Morgan Spurlock's hour-long Simpsons special, meaning that 75% of FOX's prime-time Sunday night lineup this week Matt Groening, instead of Seth MacFarlane; only The Cleveland Show made the cut.

This week also featured the return of Anne Hathaway, playing the character of Princess Penelope, a sudden co-host to Krusty's television show in an attempt to appeal to a wider demographic. As you can imagine, a character inspired by the Disney Princesses line can't sit well with Krusty's core (Bart and Milhouse) type of audience.

Homer Simpson Presents Top 10 List on 'Letterman' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 8th 2010 9:20AM
In honor of the 20th anniversary of 'The Simpsons,' Homer Simpson appeared on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and presented a list of the top 10 things he's learned after 20 years in the business.

In addition to such lessons that purchasing sushi from the Home Shopping Network is unwise, and that, sadly, 'Cougar Town' is not a show about people getting attacked by giant cats, Homer has learned the most crucial lesson about television of all -- it's not a vast wasteland as some critics say; it is, in fact, "a cesspool."

The Simpsons: The Devil Wears Nada

The Simpsons: The Devil Wears Nada(S21E05) I've been waiting all season for this episode. As a long-lapsed fan of The Simpsons, it was beginning to look like someone had sucked the heart right out of Springfield's first family. Maybe they have, for the most part, but everything that made The Simpsons such a great show 20 years ago was there tonight.

Maybe it was that we finally got to see Mr. Burns again; he was always my favorite. Yes, he only had a bit part, and in fact the part of maniacal boss was played by Carl instead of Burns, but his presence set up the stories of the entire episode. I'll go so far as to say everything about that episode worked, from Marge's sexy calendar to Ned Flander's role in the final moments.

Even the brief encounters with Bart at school fed the main story, and were handled perfectly. This is what The Simpsons is capable of, and despite a few moments that were a bit more crass than I recall the Simpsons of yore being, it was classic Simpsons all over again.

The Simpsons: The Great Wife Hope

Marge Simpson(S21E03) "Call me a killjoy, but I think that because this is not to my taste, no one else should be able to enjoy it!" --Marge Simpson on Ultimate Punching

I'm not a fan of Ultimate Fighting, though I think that other people should be able to watch it, if they're so inclined. But it is an all too common stance among watchdog groups, including mothers, sympathetic school officials and the clergy, as Nelson so kindly pointed out. Of course, this has been going on for years, but it was still a clever enough send-up of the problem.

Maybe it's because I don't find Marge to be one of the funnier characters on the show and this episode focused on her, so there weren't as many funny moments in the main storylines. Luckily, there were plenty of side characters and moments to spotlight.

TomTom? Meet HomerHomer

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jun 18th 2009 12:04PM
Homer Simpson on your TomTomGadgets have always fascinated me. And it's not because of what you can do with them. It's what you CAN'T do with them. The day my microwave can cook my dinner, then feed it to me while it's cleaning my toilet, de-crumbing the toaster, and doing my taxes is the day my interest in gadgets dies.

The most impressive aspects of gadgetry are how much you can customize them to fit your taste and personality. Just a few years ago, having a Dilbert screen saver that didn't send your hard drive into an epileptic fit was the epitome of "personal" computing.

Now you can change the way it looks from every angle, the way it thinks, and even the way it talks. TomTom unveiled a new voice skin for their GPS devices. Now Homer Simpson, the actual voice of Homer Simpson voiced by Dan Castellanetta, can guide you to locations and it doesn't have to be a dispensery of donuts.

Postal Service unveils new Simpsons stamps

The new Simpsons stamps
I can vividly remember a time when The Simpsons was the hot new show that every parent had to keep away from their kids or Child Protective Services would show up and take them away. So every time I see the newest thing that The Simpsons are on this week, I can feel myself aging.

I love The Simpsons. It has been my all time favorite show as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end, amen. So I have to have the coolest Simpsons stuff. But every time I see Bart on a TV shirt, I can feel my hair turning gray and thinner.

Love, Simpsons style

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 10th 2009 9:25AM
I've often heard from married guys that the best way to test your loved one's love is to change the wedding plans at the last minute to something completely outrageous. I'm assuming they mean an idea more outrageous than marriage.

If you're a football fan, tell them you want a cake in the shape of Dick Butkus' head -- or John Madden, if you've got more than 100 people. If you're a Star Trek fan, tell your bride you want a Mr. Spock impersonator as your best man who will say in his toast, "After today, I now understand this human emotion called love."

The whole thing sounds like a foolproof escape plan, which would explain why married guys are the ones who keep thinking of it. But for one groom who is organizing a Simpsons themed wedding, it seems to have either backfired or fulfilled his deepest dream.
