Well, the glorious run of advert free Simpsons on BBC 2 is over. ‘Behind the Laughter’ seemed a good episode to choose, being an MTV-style spoof of the series with some great funny moments. But in a way it also emphasised the show is simply not the one I grew up watching – with those exciting Friday double bills marking the start of the weekend for years.
Goodbye Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. It’s been great fun.
