That sounds bad, wcvmorasa :(   But what do 'bubbles' in the disc exactly mean? ???   Is that a defect you see on the disc physically or do you only see it while watching?  Sorry, I'm not familiar with this :-[



bartmaniac,

when u turn the media side to the light you'll see "crater formation". so when i play the disc I get pixelation in the video and squeaks in the audio. Its kind of a bummer really but I amazon already mailed me my replacement and i'm going to send the damaged set back.

HOpefully the next one will be ok.

5. I finally get to be on a real network

4. Your minimum guest payment is the most money I've ever seen in my life

3. Marge always puts out on vacation

2. I get to raid your writing staff

and the No.1 reason I, Homer Simpson, am excited to be on this show...

1. Paul and I have the same barber. Give me my money, Letterman. I want my money.



Hope you guys caught it.  My personal favorite is #3 hehe.

If you're interested in seeing it, it's online, on-demand.  Go to

bump.  ;D

favorite character is Homer Jay of course. But I'm also partial to Professor Frink.

favorite episodes:

1. A Streetcar Named Marge - Much preferred this than to A Streetcar Named Desire. Especially loved the spoof of The Birds, plus the Hitchcock cameo.

2. Flaming Moe's - I loved it when Homer swoops down on the bar like the Phantom of the Opera and forever destroys his and Moe's chances for success.

3. Behind the Laughter - the VH1 spoof of the Simpsons. Outraged the purists with its deconstruction of The Simpsons, but is extremely funny. Homer's appearance in the musical "Rent!" is one of the funniest gags ever. And this is the episode we learn that the Simpsons are from Kentucky. Or is it West Virginia...

4. Dead Putting Society - Bart vs. Todd at mini-golf. One of the earliest, but still funniest stupid Homer episodes.

5. Last Exit from Springfield - Homer's finest hour as he becomes head of the union. But also very memorable for its spoof of The Marathon Man, and that haunting union song. They should bring back that dentist.

6. $pringfield - the Monty Burns Casino. This one is really packed with gags, but the depiction of Marge's addiction to gambling is also moving.

7. Bart's Comet - Kent Brockman: "Now, over the years, a newsman learns a number of things that for one reason or another, he just cannot report.  It doesn't seem to    matter now, so...the following people are gay."

8. You Only Move Twice - Albert Brooks might be the funniest guest star ever, and this episode is one of the funniest. Homer's encounter with James Bond, the squirrel and the owl, Marge's drinking problem, the Denver Broncos... ;D

9. Das Bus - if only for that wonderful ending narration by James Earl Jones: "So the children learned how to function as a society, and eventually they were
rescued by, oh, let's say.. Moe."

10. Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington - this and the Rolling Stones' episodes were the classics of the last season. But this becomes an instant classic, IMO, if only for the unbelievably hilarious Fox News spoof, and for that brutal, but funny last line.

and last...

11. Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment - Homer's toast: "To alcohol, the cause of, and solution to all of life's problems."

feel guilty of having left out ten or twenty more. that's how great The Simpsons is.

Probably its because that the DVDs are only up until the eight season, while cartoon network is showing 12th-13th season episodes.

for loyal fans of Marge Simpson...


Marge Simpson is Playboy’s November Cover Girl

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "D'oh!" doesn't even start to cover it. Marge Simpson -- the blue beehived matriarch of America's most loved dysfunctional family - is Playboy magazine's November cover, the magazine said on Friday.

Simpson, tastefully concealing her assets behind a signature Playboy Bunny chair, is the first cartoon character ever to front the glossy adult magazine, joining the ranks of sex symbols like Marilyn Monroe and Cindy Crawford.

Playboy said the cover and a three-page picture spread inside was a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the "The Simpsons" and part of a plan to appeal to a younger generation of readers.

Scott Flanders, the recently-hired chief executive of Playboy Enterprises, told the Chicago Sun-Times in an interview that the Marge Simpson cover and centerfold was "somewhat tongue-in-cheek."

"It had never been done, and we thought it would be kind of hip, cool and unusual," Flanders told the newspaper. He said the magazine hoped to attract readers in their 20s compared to the average Playboy reader's age of 35.

Playboy also promises a story inside called "The Devil in Marge Simpson". The issue arrives on newsstands on October 16.

Playboy magazine's circulation has slipped in recent years in the face of competition from the Internet, which offers free and plentiful pictures of naked women online.

The magazine's circulation fell 9 percent as of the end of June 2009, according to figures from the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

But Flanders told Reuters earlier this week that there were no plans to close the print edition. "Over my dead body will we quit producing the magazine in print," he said.

Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie have already been honored this year with a set of U.S. postal stamps marking the 20th anniversary of the longest-running comedy series on U.S. television.

Animated series "The Simpsons" debuted in December 1989 with a Christmas-themed episode called "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire." It has won 24 primetime Emmys and was renewed by Fox television earlier this year for two more seasons.

I'm still a Simpsons fan even though i've noticed that there have been changes in the way our favorite characters have been written. The animation is way better but the writing is so-so. I just watched an episode of Season 21 wherein Homer and Marge joined the Winter Olympics in curling. Seymour Skinner's mom acted out of character for her and became sentimental. I did laugh when Liza called herself a Big Maggie since she pawned her pearls but that was it. The Dr. Zhivago montage was surreal as well as the bit wherein Homer was dancing with the mascot that Bart made from an inverted picture from his mouth. Anyway, just saw these shots which i think will be used in an upcoming episode. Thought of posting it is hot or not thread but it seems more appropriate here.

RIP Marcia Wallace. I understand that the Simpsons writers will retire her character, Edna Krabappel.

That makes Ned a widower again.

Fox announced a plan to kill off one character early this month. Maybe Ms Wallace was already too sick to work then. RIP...

just watched episodes from the 24th season. It's really depressing how the tone of show has changed from whimsy but harmless to serious and cynical. case point



Whisky Business has Moe thinking of killing himself and calling a noose a friend/pet. he actually does try to kill himself but fails when the support where the noose was hanging from breaks.

Really depressed on what The Simpsons has become. I used to anticipate every episode from our local channels and Star World every week. Now, the jokes are not even that funny anymore and there's too much musical going on in some episodes (Kinda like Glee).

Well the jokes may have gone thin but I still love the Simpsons along with South Park. The Simpsons Sing the Blues is still one of my favorite albums of all time!

Over the years, I was also an avid Simpsons fan, though I have to agree, the recent seasons have waned down on humor and general entertainment value.

Favorite moment is a heart warming one, And Maggie Makes Three where Homer places pictures of Maggie over Mr. Burns' De-motivational plaque "Don't Forget: You're Here Forever" to "Do it For Her". Classic.  :)

Harry Shearer calls it quits  :(

The show won't be the same without the voice of Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Principal Skinner, Smithers and so many other key characters.
