In preparation of season 32 (!) here are the best Simpsons episodes... ever!
Where to Watch: Disney Plus
The show: Does one of the longest-running and most popular TV shows of all time really need explaining? We know the Simpsons – Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie – well. They’re the ultimate dysfunctional family and a snapshot of American lower-middle class life throughout the decades. Across over 650 episodes, there are very few cultural touchstones that The Simpsons hasn't covered (as famously pointed out by the South Park episode “The Simpsons already did it”).
Why it’s worth a watch: With it's incredible first 11 seasons being arguably some of the best television of all time, The Simpsons takes the top place on the best shows on Disney Plus. Admittedly, the show isn’t quite the titan that it used to be. Most people would agree that it’s been steadily declining in quality over the past few years (and the recent controversy over the character Apu certainly hasn’t helped to rectify its reputation). But The Simpsons still changed the face of television, ushering in a new era of smart, witty, and adventurous comedy writing.
It’s more well-known episodes have become integrated into our culture and into our language, to the point that you can barely make it through a day now without someone in your life trying to drop a reference (unless, of course, that person is you). And now it’s all here on Disney Plus, which is a little ironic considering many people reacted to the news of Disney’s ever-expanding monopoly with the line, “I, for one, welcome our new rodent overlords.”
