The Simpsons


Summer is re-run season and most of my favorite programs fill the summer TV air-waves with repeats. This is can be good and bad because there are episodes I have missed and episodes that I want to watch again and again. There are also those episodes that I wish I could forget. Unfortunately, there are many episodes of my favorite program from this past season that I want to forget. The Simpsons. I really do love The Simpsons. I love The Simpsons in an unhealthy obsession-like love. The type of obsession that can put you in jail. The Simpsons is THE best program. Heck maybe I feel this way because I grew up watching this animated masterpiece. I have watched the program for 14 years. That is half of my lifetime on this earth (did I just give away my age?). So, when re-runs promise a not so funny episode (yes, there are a few bad episodes, just like everyone has a bad day once in a while) I turn to the next best thing.......The Simpsons books! Yes, The Simpsons are in book form. The books are awesome, they are like watching TV, but in a book form. When I read these Simpsons books on the MUNI, passengers stare at me as I laugh and laugh and hoot and holler. So when you need a TV fix....Read a book, a Simpsons book.
