The Simpsons

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television Free To Air - Lyn­dall Crisp

Satur­day, 6pm, Ten Twenty years on screen and now in its 26th sea­son, The Simpsons is the long­est run­ning scripted show on tele­vi­sion. It has won 27 Prime­time Emmy awards, 30 An­nie awards and spawned a bil­lion-dol­lar mer­chan­dis­ing in­dus­try. Fea­tur­ing Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Mag­gie and set in the fic­tional town of Spring­field, it satirises ev­ery as­pect of Amer­i­can cul­ture. Here in La­bor Pains, Homer de­liv­ers a baby in a lift and ends up bond­ing with it, much to the dis­ap­point­ment of his own chil­dren. Lisa or­gan­ises her foot­ball team’s cheer­lead­ers into a union in a bid to get more pay.
