In honor of FXX‘s 12-day Simpsons marathon, we here at Pop Culture Spin thought it would be fun to talk about some of our favorite episodes (and characters) from the show’s impressive 25-year catalog.
My favorite episode is “Mypods and Boomsticks.”
The episode came out when I was in high school, and while I wasn’t exactly in a monetary position to have an iPod, I was on the bandwagon that believed buying an Apple-branded anything made you super cool. I wanted an Apple laptop for college and was generally obsessed with Mr. Jobs. This episode actually made me stop and think while I was laughing. Many episodes of The Simpsons actually make you do that, but at the time, this one hit so close to home!
My favorite Simpson character is Ralph Wiggum. I can’t tell you how many times I made a weird slip up with my Eglidiersh and then said: “Me fail English? That’s Unpossible!”
