So over the last couple months I've been watching The Simpsons. As a child I wasn't 'allowed' to watch it, and I really never found that I was missing too much.
Surprisingly, the feeling of not missing much wasn't because The Simpsons isn't worth watching, quite the opposite. I felt like I wasn't missing much because The Simpsons is Such an important piece of North American culture that, despite having Never seen a full episode before this year in my life, I know the songs, the famous lines and general humour the show is loved for.
My mind has been blown more than once, finding out that playground songs I sung almost two decades ago were from a show I was forbidden to watch.
And we're only on season 5, where, in my opinion, it's only starting to hit it's stride.
Anyway, I'm happy to finally be enjoying a cultural phenomenon that has been going for over 20 years. It's pretty fun! (Minus the Itchy and Scratchy Show... that just makes me nauseous....)
