Confession Time: Cultural Alienation Edition.
Heard on the radio this morning: this is the 20th Anniversary of the debut of The Simpsons.
And I knew I needed to post another "Confession Time." (If you're new, the rules are simple: 'confess' to some ostensible sin on the given topic, and receive receive forgiveness from the community.) Because I have never seen a complete episode of the series. Nor the movie.
Yeah, I know, I'm some kind of heathen. Actually, I am several kinds of heathen. But in this case I have to confess that I just have never had the inclination to watch The Simpsons. And after the first bit, my sheer contrariness pushed me to avoid the show - when something becomes too popular or hyped, I have a natural inclination to go against the crowd.
So, 'fess up: what established cultural reference of the TV show variety have you never seen, and therefore been alienated from the rest of the society? And just to make it a little more difficult, let's say that the show had to be around for at least five years, during a time when you were in the country, and when you had a functioning television with access to show - in other words, it had to have been an actual choice on your part to have missed it.
