This is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family. Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the perpetual ten-year-old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight-year-old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant.Written by
Season fourteen, episode eleven, "Barting Over" was billed by FOX as the series' three hundredth episode because it was considered to be the three hundredth episode produced. However, FOX does not count the Christmas Special pilot towards that total. So technically, it was actually the three hundred first. FOX was very adamant about airing the three hundredth episode on the same day as the Daytona 500, which is one of the biggest ratings draws of the year for the network, so they pushed the air date back to February 16. So when the episode finally did air, it was the three hundred second to do so (Christmas special included), even though FOX was hyping it up as number three hundred. To further add to the confusion, all previous milestone episodes (one hundredth, one hundred fiftieth, two hundredth, two hundred fiftieth) were based on airing order rather than production order, and with the Christmas special included.

The Simpsons is a show that has sustained ten years of constant humor. The stories have gradually become better and the second fiddle characters were getting more screen time which translates into a much more realized show. The pop culture references abound and delight those who can pick them out. My personal favorite is the Citizen Kane references in the episode called "Rosebud." Plus, anything with C. Montgomery Burns is hysterical. The guest stars aren't there as a "special appearance" touted by the networks. They actually work into the storyline, and that makes it all the more enjoyable. Where else can you see The Moody Blues acting like thugs in a Vegas casino?
