The 10 Best Simpsons Episodes Ever
Come October, this will basically be us.
UPDATE: Simpsons World launches on October 21 at www.simpsonsworld.com.
With FX's "Simpsons World" set to launch
sometime in October 21, it's only a short matter of time before fans of The Simpsons find themselves glued to the couch, calling in sick to work, and binge-watching episodes until their eyes fall out, Itchy and Scratchy style. "Simpsons World" will offer every episode of the series for streaming via the FXNOW app. Though some fans might want to start from the beginning, it might be a bit less daunting to sample some of The Simpsons' greatest hits before committing to such a project.
While would could hardly say that there are only 10 great Simpsons episodes (that would be blasphemy), we do know the 10 we'll be watching as soon as the all-inclusive app rolls out.
"Knife goes in, guts come out."
"Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo"
This season-10 episode aired on May 16, 1999, and follows the Simpson family as they explore Japan. Episode highlights include a talking toilet, a Japanese television show that cause seizures, a sadistic game show host, and the Simpson's return flight to Springfield, which gets intercepted by Godzilla and Mothra.
"Looks like heaven's easier to get into than Arizona State."
"Mom and Pop Art"
When Homer fails to build his own backyard barbeque pit, he goes from frustrated middle-class man to high-class conceptual artist. Another season-10 episode, "Mom and Pop Art" aired April 11, 1999, and features an animated cameo by acclaimed artist Jasper Johns as himself and actress Isabella Rossellini as art collector Astrid Weller.Next Page
