I love this family. Atrocious to say the least, i have been a stark, raving mad fan of this show ever since i first saw it. Till i saw this series, i thought all cartoons were an excuse to have two silly characters trying to maim each other (a fact exemplified by Itchy and Scratchy on this show), but this wierd family has reaffirmed my faith in the drawing board.
Creator Matt Groening (shown in the show as a loony horny old man...hows that for a sense of humor) calls the Simpsons "The average American Family in all it's beauty and horror". He couldn't have been more right.
The most attractive thing this show is that it gets the message across on various issues, some...well, most of them controversial, in a manner that can be best described as "funnily realistic". The sarcasm and black humor really shines through, making this show a must watch, for guys like me who appreciate good, well intended sarcasm.
For me, Homer is guru. His approach to life is easy going, and spur of the moment, much like how i live my life. Not to mention the beer.
I raise a toast to the longest running Television show in history. may the good times end. D-oh, i mean never end.
