It's official! More cover-to-cover facts, figures and fun from the family we most love to love. This is the only official episode guide -- in full Technicolor -- to take you through the ins and outs of life in Springfield with The Simpsons. Homer is a safety inspector at a nuclear powerplant. He is a slob with a weakness for television. Some would even describe him as an addict. Homer is married to Marge, a woman obsessed with cooking programmes and her foot-high blue hair. They have three children: Bart, Lisa and Maggie. If you think you've just met a normal all-American family, think again. You've just met The Simpsons, stars of the BBC's top-rated animated sitcom. The first bestselling episode guide was fantastic -- but hold onto your donuts for part two. Picking up where volume one ended, this entirely new guide includes all the episodes from the past two seasons, plus material on the making of the show, and tantalising snippets of Simpsonia, including the best Homerisms, famous blackboard sayings and sofa gags. Outfit yourself with the conversational stylings and trivia know-how that will prove you the delight of social gatherings and summit meetings across the globe.

Review:

Viewers who acknowledge The Simpsons as one of the best shows ever to hit television are doubtless already proud owners of The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family. But since the show is still in production, that guide is no longer complete. And can you really live a second longer without a full list of last season's blackboard inscriptions? Simpsons creator Matt Groening and editor Scott M. Gimple come to the rescue with The Simpsons Forever! A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family--Continued. It's an exhaustive list of all the episodes of the ninth and tenth seasons, including screen shots, dialogue highlights (Moe, packing for Hawaii: "Ukulele, pineapples, beach pistol, scandalously revealing thong"), and "Stuff You May Have Missed," such as the fact that the motto of In 'n' Out Ear Piercing is "If It Dangles, We'll Punch a Hole in It." There are also brief bios of guest characters (Señor Ding Dong hates Chevy vans), song lyrics (Marge and Homer's version of "Those Were the Days"), and a fond-without-being-icky tribute to Troy McClure. The truly obsessed will welcome the lists: every couch gag of the past two seasons, which actors do which voices, and every single time Homer has said "D'Oh!" for the past two years. The Simpsons Forever does a terrific job of catching the humor and spirit of a truly great show. --Ali Davis
