Flashing Back

Hi all and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday. This week I’m going to talk about flash back episodes. The Simpsons has done a few of those and they piece together the puzzle of how the back-story of some of the characters goes.

For example: And Maggie Makes Three is an episode detailing how Maggie was born and why Homer has his current main job at the nuclear plant. Lisa’s First Word takes a look at Lisa being born and how she began to talk, with her first word being Bart. It also gives us seemingly another look into why they sometimes fight.

The most recent episode The Kids Are All Fight also explores the same thing but 2 years later in each others lives. Like Lisa’s First Word we see Grandma Flanders and her saying “hello Joe”, along with Bart in his scary clown bed. I also laughed out loud when the song The Kids Are Alright by The Who was featured in the episode. When I heard what the name of the episode was I immediately thought of that song. Then again, when The Kid Is Alright I thought of the same song appearing in the episode then too.

For some reason I wasn’t able to purchase it on iTunes until yesterday morning. I was afraid that it would never come out digitally, but I have it and I’m happy.

As for tonights episode, I’m looking forward to it, especially with Bart’s new romantic relationship. It should be a good one. Well that’s about it for this week.

In the mean time, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.
I also recommend checking out Yeardley Smith’s blog at http://gobbingoff.tumblr.com
I should also mention Marchez Vous, which is her women’s shoe designer company, which she started earlier in the decade. You can check out their website at
For some strange reason everyone I know hasn’t heard of them yet. Hopefully I can change that.

It is new so, give it time to grow.You can also comment here or you can email me at blindgordie@gmail.com and I will reply as soon as I can to all messages I receive. I would much prefer getting an email so I can reply directly to you, but that’s just me.
One final thing to mention is that you can follow Simpsons Executive Producer Al Jean on Twitter and his Twitter handle is @AlJean.
He has ran the show since Season 13 and has ran it during Seasons 3 and 4.
Anyway, that is it for this weeks post. Talk to you again on Weather Wednesday.
