News & Interviews for The Simpsons: Season 1
The citizens of Springfield deliver fresh stories, sharp barbs, and unique lessons on family, week in and week out - on a broadcast schedule, no less.
An endless, imponderable, unstoppable Niagara of sight gags, jokes, one-liners, characters and stories that explore everything from the meaning of God to the anti-allure of Duff Beer.
There are more addictive series... (especially now that the old auto-conclusive plot formula seems so passé), but we will always have Springfield. [Full review in Spanish]
This addition, a mordant animated series from cartoonist Matt Groening, is the most subversive beast in the Fox den, and, at least initially, the wittiest.
Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 1
The groundbreaking animated family comedy The Simpsons delivers a hilarious first season. The animation style is a little crude and the character designs fluctuate a bit, but overall the series has an interesting look and feel to it. And, the comedy is especially sharp; using a lot of satire and parody. Additionally, the show does an impressive job at world building and at setting up a vast array of supporting characters. Also, several guest stars including Kelsey Grammer and Penny Marshall are featured. Season 1 of The Simpsons is a lot of fun and is full of laughs.
