‘The Simpsons’ is an adult animated series that has become a pop culture phenomenon. The show has been a tour-de-force when it comes to making social commentary and the fact that it manages to do so while being extremely rib-tickling is an impressive feat.

Currently in its thirty-first season, ‘The Simpsons’ is a part of FOX’s ‘Animation Domination’ lineup which presents new episodes of several adult animated sitcoms each Sunday. ‘The Simpsons’ spearheads that lineup in the same manner that the show has spearheaded animated television series.

The show revolves around the titular, suburban family and their routine misadventures in the fictional town of Springfield. Its premise has inspired several other television series like ‘Family Guy.‘ Moreover, another impressive feat for ‘The Simpsons’ has been its uncanny ability to predict future events like the election of Donald Trump as the President of the United States.
