Why are you reading this? The 12-day, 552-episode FXX marathon of “The Simpsons” is going on! (Full schedule here.) If you weren’t lucky enough to arrange vacation (D’oh!) around this Vital Television Event, we hope you have your DVR set.
In honor of this VTE — which truly does include every episode, from No. 1, “Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire,” to No. 552, “The Yellow Badge of Cowardge” — we’re doing a celebration of our own. Today we launch The 12 Days of Simpsons, during which we’ll share our own “Simpsons” high points, and invite you to chime in with yours on the comment thread. Need prompting? Here’s one critic’s Top 10 list. Cowabunga!
