Book Description

3 July 2006 Simpsons

The classic and bestselling official episode guide to The Simpsons in a special collector’s edition, the perfect accompaniment to the first 8 seasons now released on DVD.

The Simpsons has gone from overnight success to cultural phenomenon to television's longest-running comedy show. Featuring highlights from almost 200 episodes, plot synopses, quotes, character profiles, couch gags, guest stars and much more, The Complete Guide supplies eight years of painstaking detail, including a guide to the original and little-seen short episodes from the Tracey Ullman Show.

The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favourite Family is a meticulously researched, colourfully rendered, exhaustively indexed and lovingly fashioned episode guide providing memorable moments and little-known facts that will make you an authority on the The Simpsons.

Even repeated viewings on DVD will not give you the facts and figures revealed in this bestselling book, which reveals the in-jokes, the background details and all manner of trivia craved by any self-respecting Simpsons fan, young or old.

If you like to find out more about the episode you happen to tune into on TV, then this book will help. Painstaking levels of detail for two of the more recent series, will give you info you would otherwise miss. Funny and informative, and sits well with the previous 2 volumes. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars CALLING ALL SIMPSONS FANS... 1 Feb 2003
This book is brilliant, a must for all 'Simpsons' fans. It's detailed look at every episode from seasons 11 and 12 ensure that even the most "clued-up" fan will find trivia unknown. This may sound quite boring, but with the "Highlights of the show", "Things you may have missed", hilarious 'freeze-frames' and a brief plot outline, it will keep anybody entertained for hours!
Absolutely fantastic! 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy for any huge simpson fan. 26 Aug 2011
This book is a great read. It gives you an in depth look into each episode from season 1 to season 8. On each page it shows you a handfull of quotes from the episode, things you might have missed and also it explains the meaning behind the episode. On the side of the page it shows a character and expalins a few things about them like who voiced them and what they like and dislike. In conclusion this page is a must buy for an simpson fan and I love it and have read it at least 3 times already.
