Twenty years broadcast — no joke. "The simpsons" for a very long time delighted us with its wonderful jokes and a very intelligent humor. However, their time passed. Definitely, the series is heading in the direction of moderate conservatism, but not political and soon in the psychological sense of the word. Need to say even more: the series have come to that turned into the symbol of the "conservative era"; because it — generation of the 1990s and will be.

In one of the latest episodes there is a very remarkable dialogue:

Homer Simpson: It happened distant 1990s...

Bart Simpson: the 1990s?! Never about them heard!

The creators understand that Golden time series was irretrievably bygone 1990s: writers and to show it's hard to keep up with time and, as they admit themselves, with each new series of jokes to come up with all the harder. Confirmation of this can serve as one of the episodes of "South Park" "It is already been in the simpsons." The key word here is "was"...

Today's 25-30 year-old young people, those who enjoyed the series during the 1990s, have psychologically tired of the once favorite show; the younger generation prefers other series — in particular, "South Park." So or otherwise, admit that great pleasure to revisit old seasons than expect new.

This is not means the series "the Simpsons" need to get the screens, or to cease to produce, or that it was worse than he was before. No. He just changed, like as he was the 1990s, rather than he was in the 1990s for young people 25-30 years old, he already do not will be. Now "the Simpsons" possible nostalgic show and not as innovation.

For the first time the Simpsons I saw it when I 7 years. I immediately fell to the souls of these yellow men. And a week I watched every day, afraid of missing a single episode. Although I was quite young and didn't understand some points(like the problems of religion, relationships, politics), but reviewing each episode on the 2-nd, 3-th, 5-th time, I more and more delved into and understood all the meaning and morality of each series. Every episode, you can watch an infinite number of times, as for the first time, getting to know, on first glance, the most simple, but we later learn is an unusual family.

I still love — is that the series many references to different events, movies, music, every "Treehouse of Horror" is a parody on famous cartoon or movie.

And now for each character:

Homer — fat, bald, lazy, irresponsible, not having any big goals in life, (according to the description, not the best character), but once you will meet with him closer to you see: he loves his wife and their children, and they him. His philosophy — to rejoice in the fact that you have to love yourself the way you are!

Marge — the head of the family, an ordinary housewife, beautiful, loyal and loving wife, a caring mother. Even though they with Homer often quarrel, they love each other to the coffin, showing a great example of a married loving couple.

Bart — bully, loves to ride on a skateboard, sit back, and on a couple of the Homer watch TV. In General Bart — this is the second Homer.

Fox — very smart, talented girl, a student. Dreams of becoming President of the United States, and as shown in one of a series about the future, it will be. Plays jazz on the saxophone, loves the outdoors and a big animal advocate, this has become a vegetarian.

Maggie — she has not has grown to something of the present themselves in such a polite society, but that is the main description — constantly sucking a pacifier, and sometimes deals with help her. In the words of Homer, Maggie — the coolest of them an unexpected child.

The simpsons — a parody of the family way of life is a parody any family as not only America, but in any country, with class and disadvantages. So we laugh the same on us and do not let others to make fun of us! Everyone can find themselves in Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa or Maggie.

The most popular cartoon series among children, adolescents and young people. I first saw 2002 updated I liked it very much. Best creation of Groening, consisting of nearly 500 series, which in most cases interesting. This family is impossible not to learn! Great parody humor with satire are the key to such tremendous success over other cartoons.

What is now said by many critics — just awful! If the Simpsons master mind ALL the watching spectators! This same complete nonsense! Maybe there are such fanatics really (5-10% of the total number of viewers), but not all you know! The simpsons — not "puppeteers", and excellent an interesting animated series and neither have crazy to criticize him!

In December 2009 the Vatican's official newspaper L'osservatore Romano described the scenes of the Simpsons as "realistic and smart." Recognizing the presence in the animated series of harsh language, violence and religious ignorance of the characters, the newspaper notes that the Simpsons adult re-opened for yourself cartoons.
