    Aside from Seinfeld, it's one of the only non-cartoons I enjoy! I'm rewatching the first season right now. Curious if any of you have seen it / enjoyed it.

    I really like the way that Moira Rose is the "silly one" whereas her husband is the "straight man", and of course their adult children being rich brats is hilarious. Overall, it's written quite cleverly; it is more realistic in its dialogue and less one-liner/parody heavy than The Simpsons, but nevertheless I appreciate the writing. I hope it positively influences the way I write comedic dialogue.

    Btw is this a reference to a specific real-life article? I can't find it via ggoogle :lol: And I also lovehow they captioned his job title, so funny to see it so official with that font. LOL.

    I dunno! I just saw it floating about on twitter!
    Personally, I wish I knew where people got those funny text/dm exchanges they overlay characters on so I could do the same...

    I would actually read that article. Perhaps you would care to expand it?

    IMO the first one definitely feels like a one-liner a Simpsons character would say

    OK! I hope you appreciated my "Sugar We're Going Down" reference, I had to research emo culture for a minute there, lol!

    Me: "Ohhhhh...😃now I don't get it!" -Homer, from "Habeas Tortoise" :lol:

    BTW while we're on the topic, I should remind us all that Fall Out Boy itself is a Simpsons reference 💁🏻‍♂️✨ (Even though I knew the character before the band, I for some reason thought the band came first)
    Hey y'all I'm on a Chalmers binge right now! :D :neat:
    I watched "Principal and the Pauper" (better than I remembered), "Homer Goes to Prep School" (p good), and "Habeas Tortoise" (genuinely loved rewatching that one!).
    Any recommendations / ones I'm missing?

    Recently rewatched "Smells the Roosevelts" and "Cincinnati" so not those!

    You could watch Whacking Day, his first appearance on the show…

    Off the top of my head Any Given Sundance and Girls Just Shauna Have Fun have larger roles for Chalmers, so maybe give them a go?
    MaggotMagnet

    YESSSSSSSS!!You guys are the best, thank you so much for the recommendations!!!
    I did watch "Any Given Sundance" recently, it was hilarious and gave me SO much nostalgia for being 9 years old when it came out, it totally influenced my comedy so much :lol:
    But Whacking Day and Girls Just Shauna Have Fun are perfect, I remember those but I'll have a new appreciation for them now! Thank you both!
    When DisneyPlus hides The Simpsons in my feed, thinking they can trick me into watching something else🙄

    AND IT WAS GLORIOUS!!!!!! This also explains why Chalmers acts the way he does. Honestly thisis so beautiful. They had no reason to go this hard wiht this beautiful scene. Even the way he's animated is so hilarious. I'm simply obsessed. A comment there saying this explained Chalmers's father-related trauma is part of what led me to ask about it in Simpsons Questions wherein @Sgt_Snuff helpfully told me that Chalmers reveals yet more about his childhood in "Bull-E". But I'll leave the full dissertation for our Analysis thread. :lol:

    PSH ARE YA TRYIN TA HUMILIATE ME ON HERE?! Hahhaa. /jk. Gonna fail these so hard. I'm definitely gonna get most of these wrong as I haven't quizzed myself. @Kirk Man Shoutin’ , wanna join in and see if you do better than me? XD

    1) Oh man. I can imagine that voice perfectly in my head, and I know she voices other characters, but I seriously have no name coming to mind. I'll let myself lose the point rather than guess.
    2) Hmm, man, I'm really not sure. It can't be Dan, I think he voices Scratchy based on Scratchy's screams. Guess I'll guess Harry Shearer, weirdly enough?
    3) Dan Castellanetta??!?!?
    4) Same woman who voices Agnes?!?!?!
    5) Hank Azaria? He has similar cadence/overtones to CBG, that's why i say that. And is it Kevin Michael Richardson now??!?!
    6) Hank Azaria, I'm pretty sure.

    I'm ready to get pelted with tomatoes and cancelled for how badly I remembered these 💀

    1. Her name’s Tress MacNeille
    2. Wrong. It’s Dan Castellaneta. Harry voices Scratchy.
    3. Correct!
    4. Correct! Tress MacNeille again.
    5. Correct! And, recently, by Alex Désert.
    6. It’s Harry Shearer actually. Hank does the Old Jewish Man though.

    WOW, DOLPH AND AGNES BEING THE SAME IS WACKY! Lol, I did better than I thought! I got a 50%. That's an F but at least it's not an F-. Booyah!

    i'm referencing a Dolan meme and realizing I'm quickly becoming ancient because google had no idea what i'm talking about.
    For context in case you're not as old as me.

    Thanks for the enlightenment! Huh! And that's funny because when I typed "PSH ARE YA TRYIN TA HUMILIATE ME ON HERE?" I thought of it in the Old Jewish Man voice. That makes sense, I could see Hank doing that. :lol:
    I just rewatched S18E21 "24 Minutes", it was SOOO FUNNY HAHAHHAHA. Not sure how much of it is nostalgia (I was 8 when I saw it live on air), but it was genuinely so funny too. I love how serious/specific they went with the framing of that parody.

    LOL YES!!! I'm not gonna lie, before I saw this, I was thinking about your comment while driving home. Suddenly it hit me, I FINALLY GOT THE GARIBALDI JOKE AFTER YEARS. I literally was laughing while driving🤣🤣🤣🤣YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE LOL. Among the best subtle decisions the writers have ever made IMO.

    🎶We put the bald in Garibaldi🎶
    Sorry, not Simpsons, but I figure there may be some KOTH fans here! Here's a chill Hank I drew this evening.

    It is a very interesting episode for the show, as it takes place over the time skip of a year but it’s not a future episode, it just happens to take place one year later, it’s definitely worth a watch as an interesting point in the series but not good in the slightest in my eyes, I think that’s one of the episodes that helped me realize that the show wasnt as good as it used to be

    Nobody likes Gil. Don’t know if he ever made me laugh once…

    Oh wow! I guess sometimes episodes that one considers badly written can still be eye-opening. I appreciate the recommendation.
    LOL, I think the fact that nobody likes Gil is what makes me tempted to care about him. i think of the coleco scene where he tries to sell the computers and fails so bad, or when he's the worst red-jacketed real estate agent in Marge and Lionel's company (can't think of name right now) XD
    Merry Christmas Dr. Nick!

    LOL, thanks for the response!!!!! XD The food I've been eating recently would definitely pass the "Window" test!
    But my big holiday is Новый Год (New Year's) so I haven't celebrated quite yet.
    Hope you have a great one!

    What’s Новый Год?
    MaggotMagnet
    MaggotMagnet
    Aw, Thanks for asking! It's a Soviet-born New Year's celebration similar to Christmas, with giftgiving done by 'Father Winter' and 'Snowflake Gal'. This nonreligious Soviet-diaspora holiday was celebrated for 100+ years, so a lot of Russian-speakers in America still celebrate it.
    We're going out to the Ukrainian restaurant, where we'll eat a bunch of food and dance (those types of restaurants usually have a disco floor and people singing/performing). It has wholesome elements but it's a lot like going clubbing with family, LOL. Many partake in alcohol, and usually they play "Rasputin" and ABBA's "Happy New Year" and everyone cries. :D
    It was funny to find these summary pics.

    have some ridiculous art I made because of that 1 joke in Yokel Chords LOL!
    It's actually an illustration for a fanfic XD

    I can't believe how this came out , I am so proud oh my goodness but it's 4 AM and I need to go to bed LOL

    Also on Twitter and IG
    Oh my gosh, I am reading this fan script I found on NoHomers fan scripts and quietly LAUGHING MY A' OFF!!!!!

    The comedic timing and jokes are SPOT ON, it feels so hilariously like a Season 10 episode.
    I wonder what year it came out - probably circa 2006 because it misspells "You Tube".
    Edit: Bingo, I was right; it was written for a 2006 college thesis!

    I hope the fan writer, Sean Redmond, is doing well these days!
    Yesterday, a writer I admire critiqued my latest fanfic for being written TOO much like the show! I was shocked. She said, at that point, there's no point in reading my story if she can just go watch the show.
    It was a tough criticism to get, but I find it a pretty flattering problem to have! XD

    @Kirk Man Shoutin’ Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, maybe criticism can be the harshest form of flattery?
    MaggotMagnet
    MaggotMagnet
    Aww, thank you guys!!! I certainly didn't expect so many comments from buddies and appreciate all your support! :D
    I wanted to clarify that I truly respect the friend who wrote the constructive criticism, and she was helpful and nice about it!
    I feel like her goal was to get me out of my comfort zone which is noble. I replied to her this afternoon with gratitude.

    @ Kirk Man Shoutin' : Yeah!! I was so honored she took the time to read it, she's a huge supporter of my works and her own stuff is as hilarious and engaging as it is well-written, so her critique really meant a lot to me!

    @BloodySimpsonChibi : Mmm...Original Tart is my favorite Frogurt flavor! Thank you; I generally consider it a good thing too, and I find also find canon writing pretty fun. However I think the intent was that, because I stick so close to canon, it doesn't present anything that readers haven't seen before. She prefers more romantic scenes, and because I stuck to canon, I didn't get as intimate a view of the characters as a less canon story.

    @Sgt_Snuff : Thank you for asking! It was a mixture of compliments and constructive critique. It was about her own preferences for fluff fics, and the reason my stuff is frustrating to read is because I give the characters the same 'relationship tension' they have in the show, so nothing ever gets resolved LOL. The end of my fics tend to "go back to normal" like the show.
    And the 'harshest form of flattery' part is so well said! Personally I only take the time to critique episodes if I think there's something redeemable about 'em, so I do take it as a compliment!

    Oh yeah. I suppose The Simpsons doesn't lend itself to the fluffy shippy heights that fanfiction in general is known for. Still, glad you appreciate your friend's constructive criticism

    I DID NOT KNOW LINDSEY NAEGLE WOULD SCORE THAT HIGH 💀 to be fair I don’t remember a lot of her scenes, is she written to be problematic or something?

    I CAN'T BELIEVE IT EITHER AHHAHA! Thank you for understanding my flabbergastedness!!!! XD I don't know why but I suspect Lindsay Naegle has some cocaine references? But it's weird to think she's made that many sexual jokes, more than Enda Krabappel?!? AND MAYOR QUIMBY who's practically shown seducing someone every episode??! I'll have to keep a closer eye on Naegle as I watch older eps!
    AND YES AHHAHAHA WOW, I guess they might be including Flanders condemning that stuff as references?! In any case, a truly shocking infographic! Thank you for giving it a look! XDD
