With the departure of Harry Shearer, many feel The Simpsons is beginning to lose its comedic edge.
Rumours of Homer and Marge splitting up were quickly refuted but they sounded believable and caused an outrage (not least because the person who was slated to split them up was a pharmacist voiced by Lena Dunham). While the writers try and get the series back on track, its fans continue to breathe life into Simpsons-related nostalgia.
Developers GumpyFunction have created playable editions of three games that featured in the series, including Kevin Costner’s Waterworld, Escape From Grandma’s House and Larry The Looter. Prizes for anyone who can remember which episodes they come from without having to look them up. It’s a pity Disembowler IV, Bonestorm and Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge weren’t included but we can’t expect miracles.
