Matt Groening

"The Simpsons" marks its 20th year of production this year. While it may not be at its height of creative power like it was in the mid 90's, it's still the smartest, funniest sitcom out there. I will watch it until the day it leaves the air. I wonder when that will be.

"Futurama" is releasing its final movie on dvd this week, "Into the Great Green Yonder". Alex and I caught it at the NYCC and it's as good as everything else they've done. This is the final film on their contract.

No show lasts forever. But when will they close the book on "Futurama"? When will we see "The Simpsons" final episode? According to Matt Groening, never.

I remember seeing an early version of the Simpsons at a film festival in Boston around 1988 or 1989. Of course, I didn't pay much attention to it, but I do remember it was just a short, and it was kinda rough. I wish I could see it again and compare it to what it's become. I doubt it even had any of the current voices in it.
