The Nicest Thing Ever Said

Validating Feelings

Few shows have influenced an entire generation, culture and television combined, more than The Simpsons. The show has convinced people that animation can be for adults, and most importantly, that it can be profitable to run at prime time. Hence, the show is now the longest-running scripted prime time television series since it began airing on Fox Network back on December 17, 1989.

The Simpsons’ long-lasting momentum was very well described by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane: “As far as I'm concerned, they basically re-invented the wheel. They created what is in many ways—you could classify it as—a wholly new medium."

 

A Father's Love

For those who don't know the story behind this:

Before Maggie was born, Homer Simpson worked at the Nuclear Plant because he needed the money to pay for all the debt. Once Homer Simpson finally payed the debt he quit his job to work at his dream job at the bowling alley. When Homer Simpson found out that Marge was pregnant with Maggie, he became depressed that he had to quit his job at the bowling alley because the salary couldn't support them. When Homer Simpson begged Mr. Burns for his old life back, he put a plaque that reads "Don't Forget: You're Here Forever." When Maggie was born, Homer instantly fell in love with her. When Lisa asked Homer where did all Maggie's baby pictures went, Homer explains that he keeps it where he needs it the most

Seeing Both Sides

One pop culture historian and writer, Christopher Irving, said that The Simpsons managed to make referential and satirical humor go mainstream simply by being a good show.

“It's that simple: the pastiche, parody, and inclusion of pop culture isn't what the show is built around—the show is built around relationships, which is what makes the Simpsons themselves believable enough to love." But due to the abundance of references, the show resonated with a very diverse audience.

Mutual Respect

The question remains whether The Simpsons has became an icon in its own accord and will generate the same effect to younger audiences that are no longer in time with pop culture references.

But British cultural historian Christopher Cook is convinced the yellow world is not leaving our hearts anytime soon. “There’ll be PhDs and ‘guides’ galore to help people through The Simpsons. The future generations will want to unravel the programmes and understand their referencing,” he told the BBC.

 

When Homer Temporarily Becomes Smart

A crayon gets removed from Homer's brain and he becomes temporarily smart and can communicate with Lisa, he later gets it put back in, before that, he leaves Lisa a note.

Homer's note to Lisa: I'm taking the coward's way out. But before I do, I just wanted to say being smart made me appreciate just how amazing you really are.

#11 annnnd at that, we're done. Because, just as with everything these days, there starts off this wholesome message to all that can make us all smile as human beings, but then suddenly there's this political canonizing of a select few, which on the surface seems fine, yet immediately implies those they don't condone the same message are terrible people. That's what politicizing and virtue signaling does and the entertainment industry should stay out of it. Under the veil of this ersatz righteousness, you are openly despising people who haven't done a thing.

I've liked their clever humor over the years, though the show was pretty rough in it's infancy. Still 1000x better than that toilet humor themed family guy.
