Of all the villains that TV has given us over the years, few are as fun to watch as Sideshow Bob, someone whose malevolent motivations always enjoyably blow up in his face. (Or rake up in his face, really.) But the character will get his day in the sun for this year’s Treehouse of Horror special, as he will finally be able to murder Bart Simpson. But in what way?
The titular family has just begun their 27th season residing at 742 Evergreen Terrace, with a contractual guarantee that they will continue to do so for 28. People have often joked that the series would run forever, but – like all things – it must eventually come to an end.
They say the more things change, the more they stay the same. For Season 27 of The Simpsons, though, the same old animated universe we know is being changed in several different ways. And one of them may have to do with Smithers.
By saying “the greatest thing you’ll see all day” in the headline, we’re just assuming that you think that “most nightmarishly abstract” is a suitable synonym for “greatest.”
You already know what your favorite TV shows are, and you probably know what your friends’ favorite shows are, particularly if they’re outspoken on social media. But have you ever wondered how the people making those series feel about all the projects populating TV history?
With the fall TV season just around the corner, our televisions will soon be awash with characters new and old that will be taking on villainous tasks, making our favorite characters’ lives a living hell. But for now, we’re celebrating 10 ruthless bastards that made the past year so wonderfully dastardly.
Here are 9 characters from TV’s modern era that retained their core look throughout entire runs of a series. Some of these shows are still on the air, so they could technically introduce some major changes next season, but they probably won’t.
We’re about to enter a reality where one of the most famous fictional brands of all times can be found on actual store shelves. Ladies and gentlemen, you may one day be able to make up an excuse for a friend or spouse about how you were too shitfaced on Duff Beer to do that thing you were supposed to do.
New hope for the series’ return came when Matt Groening combined his two greatest achievements in last year’s Simpsons/Futurama crossover ”Simpsorama.”. Is there a chance we’ll get another one in the future?
Throughout its many seasons, The Simpsons has featured many guest stars over the ages, and though many of them have played their celebrity selves, there are still plenty of amazing fictional characters with famous voices behind them. Sadly, very few of them ever come back to Springfield, and there’s one that fans have been wanting to see again for ages.
It’s been a rough time for Donald Trump. He's come under fire for his political views, got canned by NBC, and the Miss USA pageant, which he co-owns, was dropped by NBCUniversal. And it’s not getting any easier, as The Simpsons have now taken aim at the business mogul.
A couple months ago word came out that Harry Shearer was holding out on returning to The Simpsons as it extended its run through Season 28. It was a big hit for Simpsons fans, but it looks like the actor has negotiated a new deal, and in fact will be returning to the series.
As The Simpsons makes its way to a monumental Season 27, it is (at the moment) doing so without the vocal talents of Harry Shearer. In the meantime, people are coming out of the woodwork to show their own talents...like Republican Ted Cruz.
Here in the world of television fandom, we rely on our main characters to keep us hooked on our favorites series year in and year out, and it’s inarguably a tough job. So cheers to these ten characters, chosen by fans as the greatest TV figures of all time.
For over a month now, fans of The Simpsons have been fretting over the fact that longtime voice actor Harry Shearer might be leaving the show before Season 27 comes around later this year. But co-star Hank Azaria isn't entirely convinced.
