This is an idea that has been floating around my head for a while now, but today I am taking the first steps in making this dream come alive. For the next, um, a lot of days, I shall watch one episode of The Simpsons every day (when possible). I endeavour to blog often, the content of which is yet to be decided. Maybe it will be reviews of the episodes, mistakes, comments or just random posts about how I watched yet another Simpsons episode. We’ll see how it pans out.
I aim to start on Monday 10 December, 2012, or whenever I can get my hands on the full first season.
Because I can, mostly. I love The Simpsons and there are a lot of episodes I haven’t seen. Recently, I wrote an essay focusing on television’s response to youth culture which focused on two shows of different eras: The Monkees and The Simpsons. I uncovered a lot of interesting research about both shows and now seems like a good time to indulge in watching the entire series.
Every day, or as close to every day as humanly possible. Barring emergencies and technological failures, of course.
Mostly from my house, I expect. I am going away in early January so I shall take some episodes pre-loaded onto my tablet. Of course.
Mostly by myself, but I suppose there will be times when my boyfriend will catch an episode as well. He’s not really a fan, but don’t judge him on that.
I’m gonna need an external hard drive, aren’t I?
1. No skipping episodes, or parts thereof. Just because I’ve seen the early seasons a billion times doesn’t mean I can skip to the good stuff.
2. If I miss a day, the episode missed shall be watched the next day. Reasons for skipping days must be valid and not “I don’t feel like it”.
Leave a comment if you think I’ve missed something.
