The Simpsons Mrs. K
Last fall, "The Simpsons" lost a key component of the creative magic that has kept them on the air for over two decades: Marcia Wallace, the voice behind Bart's longtime teacher/nemesis Edna Krabappel passed away. And last week, the creators aired their tribute to the actress during a new episode of the show. Read More »

So, what are people going to do on Monday when "True Detective" is over and parodies will quickly become dated? Well, "Game Of Thrones" and "Mad Men" are right around the corner, but before that, The Yellow King needs to be found, and "The Simpsons" have done just that.

With "The Rover," his follow-up to the highly lauded “Animal Kingdom” set for release this summer, David Michôd has free time on his schedule and decided to head to the small screen. Per Deadline, Michôd will helm the pilot episode for the Starz series “Flesh And Bone” from “Breaking Bad” staff writer Moira Walley-Beckett. The series follows “a young ballet dancer, Claire, who has a distinctly troubled past, as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York.” Sounds like "Black Swan: The Series." Michôd previously helmed an episode of the now-cancelled Mike White HBO comedy “Enlightened.”

The Simpsons is curious show. The longest running American sitcom in history (25 seasons long), its relevancy and quality dropped off hard after season 10, but in recent years it’s made a bit of a comeback. And certainly they’ve been more relevant than ever in the movie world with recent impressive tributes like the “Treehouse of Horror XXIV” opener recently directed by Guillermo del Toro. Well, they’re at it again.

And if you have better things to do on Sunday night, the good news is you can watch it right now.

Last week, a lengthy supercut dropped featuring every movie reference in the first five seasons of "The Simpsons," and it was glorious. And instead of leaving us hanging, a mere seven days later the daunting work of capturing every nod to cinema continues with a new, 20-minute supercut of every movie reference from seasons 6-10. And yes, it's again pretty awesome.

The impact of "The Simpsons" on popular culture is undeniable and it's often easy to forget just how huge it was (remember the novelty hit "Do The Bartman"?). But what's perhaps most curious is that aside from the great writing, fantastic humor and at times deeply touching stories (Mr. Bergstrom forever), the creators of the show were huge pop culture junkies themselves, and movie buffs too. But they didn't just fold their homages to some cinema's most iconic films lazily or without reason, and as this supercut shows, they were often ingenious in making it both natural and hilarious.

Well, while die hard "The Simpsons" fans have already been told they're going to have to wait at least 10-15 years for another big screen outing, the show continues to soldier on, recently wrapping up its 24th season. But it looks like the show is still trying to surprise, and in a move we thought would never happen, it's going to crossover with another Fox animated hit, that owes its success to the Springfield family.

Regardless of where your anticipation for new “The Simpsons” episodes stands, one aspect of the show most agree is still strong is in its irreverent gallery of made-up brands, store names, and products. Names like Java The Hut and Bloodbath And Beyond hold a special place in the show's 24-year history, and College Humor have now paid proper tribute by focusing on just the range of video games on display.

To quote Homer Simpson: “TV gives so much and asks so little.” The same could be said for “The Simpsons” itself, which has for the last 25 years blazed a yellow trail through television history, with a record-breaking twenty-four (and counting) seasons, one hit movie, and an army of Springfielders so extensive that half of them don’t seem to recognize each other from one episode to the next.
