TV SHOW REVIEWS: The Simpsons: Season 1 (DISNEY+)

Well, it was time to feel nostalgic a bit and go back in time to when the Simpson fad came into being.

Can you believe that The Simpsons first started back in 1989 and has got like 34 seasons and counting, which is amazing?

In the first season, you meet Marge, Homer, Bart, Lisa and Maggie The Simpsons.

We are also throughout the season introduced to the other side characters of the shows and brought into the town of Springfield.

You will meet Apu, Nelson, Jimbo, Bleeding Gums Murphy, Milhouse Cheif Wigam and many more whom I will mention in future season reviews.

To my surprise that the series or the first season was rated G for everyone to watch and enjoy, however, some subjects and themes were not exactly kid friendly certain things like infidelity and womanizing.

In the first season, Marge’s age was 34 years old and you are not told Homer’s age but can I just side-track here and say if marge is 34 in the first season and Homer is older should they not both be retired by now as the show is over 30 seasons and still going strong.

Can you believe that we have to deal with topics like Bart getting bullied and at the same time he bullies others is it seen as the lesser of two evils?

Bart becomes a Genius in the first season and then goes downhill from there also Lisa gets the blues and we are introduced to the saxophone and as I mentioned above bleeding gums, Murphy.

Sidetracking here again The Simpson’s intro the beautiful thing that I like watching on Disney+ is that you can pause the show where Bart is writing lines on the blackboard and see what he is writing and it’s so random like I will not call my teacher “Hot Cakes”

My daughter finds the cartoon scary I think she is still too young for the show although it’s a G-rated cartoon at the start.

Near the end of the season, you have an episode that starts the character arc of Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob and the detective crimefighting duo of Lisa and Bart is born I cannot believe this whole story arc was there from the start and was good small when it started but it did build a strong storyline that in the future grew to be what it is now.

If you are a fan of The Simpsons it’s not a bad thing to go back and see where it all started and reminisce on childhood memories.

I advise younger kids to watch this show with parental guidance as some adult themes are throughout the show and if you remember well in Australia this show was first put in a timeslot that was evening viewing so no Saturday morning cartoon slot for The Simpsons.

A solid start 7/10
