The first season of the Simpsons isn’t that bad. Some of the episodes are pretty funny. But yeah, just started going through the second season DVDs and it’s a world of difference. Both in terms of animation and story. It has some classics, including “How To Cook For Forty Humans” and “Hi, this is Larry King. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Still not the best season, but yeah, it’s pretty good.
Anyway, random Simpsons trivia gleaned from a commentary: every time there’s an establishing shot of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, you hear a crow. I never noticed that.
