Ron loaned me a hard copy of Mike Reiss‘ 2018 book on his years working on The Simpsons. He was one of the first writers when the show started in 1989.
Hilarious. I recommend it.
I stopped watching The Simpsons back when every episode was controversial. They made fun of everyone and everything.
But I’m still a big fan. My Facebook avatar is Lugash, Lisa Simpson’s Gymnastics coach.
Ten years in … Family Guy launched.
Peter Griffin was fatter and dumber. Family Guy mocked topics sacrosanct to The Simpsons.
Surprisingly, many on The Simpsons writing team were offended.
