The legendary series will make history once again Thursday when FXX will start an epic 12-day marathon of every Simpsons episode. That includes every “D’oh!” Duff and “Aye, caramba” from the 552-episode run.
Not many people have 12 solid days to spare, so here’s a list of the 15 essential and memorable episodes you can’t miss during the embiggen’d marathon.
The marathon lasts 12 days and starts at 9 a.m. Central Time on Thursday, Aug. 21. It ends on Monday, Sept. 1, which just so happens to be Labor Day, at 10:59 p.m. Central Time.
Who needs the Quickie Mart?
During that glorious butt-numbing, couch-indenting time you’ll see 552 episodes and one feature-length movie. The writer, Ashley Burns*, is very clear when she writes “DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WATCH EVERY EPISODE!!!” although she recognizes that people will still try.
*Wait, wait, wait … the last name of the person who wrote this is Burns? Excellent.
Now if you’ll excuse me, you people have stood in my way long enough. I’m going to clown college.
