“Do you ever drink to escape from reality?” – Marge Simpson
Ladies and gentlemen, we made it. Season 22 is over, and the only confirmed casualties were humor, plot and enjoyable comedy. In celebration, I’ll be undertaking another Simpsons-beer marathon this Saturday, the 28th of May. For those who’ve found this blog since the last time I did this, the basic concept is that, starting at about 8:00am Eastern Time (US), I’m going to watch an entire season of The Simpsons and drink one beer per episode. I’ll post running updates after each episode finishes, (a more detailed description can be found here).
Just like the previous times, the season I watch will be decided by the Simpsons fans with the good taste and penchant for self torture who deign to visit this site. Seasons 4, 5, and 6 have been done, so the poll at right contains Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 7. The poll will be open until midnight Friday (04:00 GMT Saturday), and I’ll watch whichever season comes out ahead.
Update May 28: Season 7 put up a hell of a fight, but Season 3 prevailed. Thanks to everyone who voted.
