Fancy.


I'm not entirely sure exactly when and where I drifted out of watching The Simpsons. If I had to guess, I'd say it was the first episode written by and starring Ricky Gervais; while the episode on its own wasn't very funny, it was compounded by Sky One (and anyone who lives in the UK will know what I'm talking about) running the most obnoxious advertising campaign imaginable in the week leading up to its broadcast on Sunday evening.

Then, when it was first run, it started with a message from Ricky Gervais reminding the audience that Channel 4 was not two years behind Sky One in broadcasting new episodes of The Simpsons; Channel 4 was four years behind Sky One in broadcasting new episodes of The Simpsons (or something to that effect).

Maybe it's because I'm not really much of a Ricky Gervais fan? I don't know.

Anyway, I've only listened to the first couple of episodes, but this podcast ought to be something interesting to fill up downtime at work, and I'm looking forward to future instalments.
