Important question: For this Simpsons roundtable discussion, Amanda, was the table really round?
Avatar    Wed. 8/13/14 12:05pm Amanda:

Tots talked about that episode, "A Milhouse Divided," on last week's show! It is one of my all-time favorites, probably top 5.

@Doug, well, there was no table at all. But our eyeballs were perfectly round, so does that count for something?

@ljfw: I remember, fondly, watching someone's Simpson's screensaver for what seemed like a very long time. This was...early 1990s? Mr Burns would come in periodically and say things like "lollygagger!...layabout!....get back to work!"

Never saw the clips on the Tracey Ullman show, but my first exposure was in like Feb 90, when I was on vacation down in NC visiting friends at Duke. We went to an off-campus party, and someone put a tape of like 6 1st-season episodes on. So I mainlined a shitload of them in 1 sitting.

Saul of Tarsus did not return home with a greater sense of mission.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/13/14 12:22pm Dan B From Upstate:

You're not far off, Jake. There was a time, prolly in the early 2000s, where I could relate any topic of conversation to something that happened on the simpsons. It was such a huge part of my formation in the 90s. That and Mystery Science Theater, but that's another conversation.

In Living Color and The Simpsons were same night, Sun IIRC.

My 10- and 13-year-old watch the Simpsons regularly (w/ us), though the show these days sadly pales next to Bob's Burgers, which comes on after.

I agree Jeff.

Cultural refs in the classic Simpsons showed the writers' love of 50s-70s TV and movies. Krusty is a major nexus of that sort of writers' nostalgia. Def. embiggened my 20-something's trove of classic-TV trivia.
Avatar    Wed. 8/13/14 12:27pm Amanda:

They certainly were edgy in the very beginning, even though the Tracey Ullmann Show was on primetime. I recall seeing them in animation festivals like Spike & Mike etc. alongside much more underground material

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/13/14 12:36pm Jeff:

I have a confession / observation to make: I was obsessed with The Simpsons as good comedy and as a smart cultural mirror and touchstone from their start as misshapen scratchy drawings on the Tracy Ullman Show through their evolution in later years... but when South Park came out, it seemed as if the world had changed. The torch had been passed, and I pretty much forgot The Simpsons were still on.

Maybe the Simpsons writers were still doing great, smart work - but it just stopped occurring to me to look and see what they were up to.

Did anyone else have this experience?
Avatar    Wed. 8/13/14 12:38pm listener james from westwood:

I stopped watching the Simpsons after there was a reference to "crumping." I knew at that point it had passed me by. South Park exists in more of an eternal now with contempt for all sides as it reacts to current events, so it may stay fresher?

"The Simpsons are going to Antarctica!!"
Avatar    Wed. 8/13/14 12:39pm Amanda:

@Jeff, I think a lot of people had this experience. Some jumped ship during South Park's ascendance, others during Family Guy's. Speaking as a 30something I can remember the buzz surrounding SP among college kids. In 1996 we all piled into someone's dorm room to watch Simpsons together each Sunday but by 1998 we didn't anymore.

...SouthPark is like between Beavis&B & Simpsons...like - let's deliberately go further than Simpsons & the others; they say they make fun of everyone, but they're Crypto-Conservatives...still - SouthPark is *funny* - & I'm forever grateful for what they did to XMAS !!...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/13/14 12:43pm Jeff:

Interesting. My reaction to Family Guy (although I admit I haven't watched a ton of them) has always been that while there's plenty of cultural-reference cleverness there, it doesn't feel as if there's much if any *there* there.

I thought this show was going to be discussing the senate career of Alan K. Simpson. What gives?!

AND shall I add (sorry I forgot it back then): Mr. Burns doing the Grinch. Genius and beautifully done.

@Amanda: Thanks! And I did the "holds hand to ear" Grinch pose Burnsy did during the song earlier.

"It was the best of times..." quote also reminds me of "We the purple?!" - that's one of those lines that pops into my head randomly...often when I'm looking at my daughter's schoolwork.

@Doug, stay tuned for 2 add'l hours of the show, containing the music of Jessica Simpson.

Aw, thanks r i s k y for the nice wordz. Unbelievably, even though I'm not DJing live I find it so hard to keep up with everyone's comments! Thank you all so much for commenting!
Avatar    Wed. 8/13/14 1:43pm listener james from westwood:

They eventually came up w a 5-note "trite sitcom ending" flourish that they'd end an ep with to accentuate the absurdity, a sort of Laverne & Shirley-esque "da-da-dada-DA!" I know this communicates well over the net. :D

Think of it: To get that Classical Gas joke on the air, it presumably cost money for the rights. That's how dedicated they were to it.

Four cheers to Amanda for hanging with the playlist when she could be out vacation frolicking!

Classical Gas: Mason Williams 1968 (just for the record)

my other favorite simpson's moment is when they watch the Mr. Sparkle commercial and Bart, without missing a beat, calls homer 'Fish-bulb'.

I still play the 2002 edition of Simpsons trivia.

Our local station used to do two episodes between 5-6 every night in the 90s and early 2000s. We're close enough to canada that the local cbc affiliate also did an episode from 5-5:30 every night. Three episodes a night. It was a great time. Then the CBC station lost their rights, and at the same time, our local affiliate moved the reruns to 12:30-1 AM. I haven't gotten to watch the show regularly since about 2003. I still watch on Sunday nights. I don't care. I still love it, but I really miss the old ones.
