    I'm so confused about the current season. It's been going on longer than any other season (I think, anyway). Is the new episode this week the beginning of the next season already or is this season being extended?

    Wow, that was one LONG season. With that said, there's still season 24 and 25, right?

    Actually this season is scheduled to end with only 21 episodes in it, shorter than many including Season 22. Yes Season 24 and 25 are guaranteed. 24 should premiere in September.

    EDIT: Actually forget that I just checked, it will have 22 episodes afterall, which is typical of the Jean Era.

    Question about a song

    Does anyone know the name of the song (or at least an instance of the song being used) that is generally played to indicate wealth and prosperity in The Simpsons? It is uptempo and played with a violin (or perhaps cello). I know this isn't a lot to go on, but I bet someone knows what I'm talking about.

    Sounds like it might be a classical piece, like Mozart's "A Little Night Music" or Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" (Spring) perhaps? Just taking a shot in the dark here.

    I HAVE A QUESTION:
    All right so I believe in "Some Enchanted Evening" that it was revealed that Marge was 34 years old....
    However, in "Kill the Alligator and Run" we find out that Homer is 39...
    yet, they graduated high school together.
    Wtf?
    Was Homer really held back 5 years??

    It's just another of the many consistent storylines that evidence the writers outstanding devotion to continuity

    Can someone explain the 4 act concept of the new simpsons to me?

    Hi all! So I've been reading about this 4 act concept that apparently a lot of people hate that are in the new episodes? Can someone please tell me what season this concept was implemented in, whose idea it was, and just what exactly is supposed to happen in each of the four acts? Thank you!

    It came in with Lisa the Drama Queen from Season 20 and then all the HD episodes onward. I believe a writer in an interview said FOX forced it on them. As to what happens in the 4 acts well I imagine the first and last are supposed to be similar to a 3 act episode with the middle 2 just splitting up the middle of the story. Just a guess on that one though...

    It's strange because the show technically has always had three commercial breaks. There used to be a commercial right after the opening credits and couch gag, then two more throughout the run of the show. For some reason, that first commercial break got bumped up, splitting the episode into four acts and (usually) messing with the pacing. Maybe it's because less viewers caught the first commercial break after the credits?

    The MacFarlane shows handle it differently--the third commercial break is right BEFORE the end credits. That combined with the semi-abrupt ending of some episodes sometimes makes me wonder if the show is actually over.

    In the episode The Trouble with Trillions, Charlie says to Homer "Why stop there, Homer. My militia has a secret plan to beat up all sorts of government officials. That'll teach them to drag their feet on high definition TV!"

    What does he mean by the high definition TV reference?

    This has to do with this website, not with the actual simpsons... What is up with threads being closed? I started a thread that I really enjoyed reading the comments to, and then it was closed! I think that Rango person did it! How did he do that and why are other people able to close MY threads? Shouldn't I have the power over that? Can anyone close a thread?

    mods (blue/green stars) and admins (red stars) have the power to close threads in different forums. only the mod of the specific forum can close it, i believe.

    usually threads are closed if the posts are continuously going off topic, or if the thread had been done before recently. as for your thread, i don't know which one you're talking about so i can't really say

    what's a mod? What's the difference between a mod and an admin? And I cannot close my own threads then?

    my thread was the one that speculated about what had made the Simpsons go downhill btw

    according to the FAQ:

    Admins- "They have complete control over the board-- they can edit profile features, change passwords, add/delete/change forums, etc.-- as well as global moderation power."

    Mods- "They can moderate all of the forums (edit posts, delete posts, close threads, sticky threads, change thread titles).

    no, you cannot close your own threads, unless you were a mod or admin. you can however request one of your threads to be closed, if you thought there was a good enough reason.

    yea, the reason that was closed is more than likely because there have been so many threads about the simpsons' decline over the years.

    what's the highest viewed episode in the show, and how many viewers did it have? I've read like 3-4 different answers on different sites.

    also, how quick are episodes added online? now that i'm done with school i wanna watch the rest of the season. i especially wanna watch tonight's episode as soon as possible (but i will be working when it's on).

    thanks in advance people

    Bart Gets an F had something like 16 Million on its first airing. I might be completely incorrect.

    Double that number and you're almost correct. 33 million people watched that, making it the highest rated episode ever.

    The Simpsons has no right to take a jab at anything, no matter how bad.
