Welcome back to Springfield! *Duh*

If you love the color yellow, pop culture and onomatopoeia, you’re in luck. Starting today FXX is launching the ultimate marathon. They will show the Simpsons 25 seasons, 552 episodes, in chronological order for 12 days…

I remember when the Simpsons first aired in France…I was a kid and we were recording the shows on VHS to watch it with my brother and father. For a long time I thought of my father as my personal Homer: he was going with thinner and thinner hair, was drinking beer, but most of all, the place he was working at was nicknamed The Central.

I have not watched an episode in recent memory even though I stumble upon runs and reruns. I followed from afar and thought I would be able one day to look back to Springfield but I never had the opportunity like I had for Futurama and Family Guy (through Netflix and Hulu).

Celine (aka the best wife ever) plans on recording all the 552 episodes on our Tivo Roamio Pro but it could itself prove to be a challenge as Tivo seems to have an hard limit on the number of shows you can schedule. We can record 450 hours of show and so far use only 9% of it but Tivo only plans to record the 200 first shows. Our hope is that as soon as it recorded one it will schedule the next one.

I wonder if it aged well, the same way that South Park did.

And you do you plan on following the marathon?

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is over for some time now, but some people are still saying their goodbyes, like the team of tvtag that gave Walter White a proper sendoff, into space…

Thanks to Comixology, I just discovered Alex+Ada from Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn. This story takes place in a near future where neural interfaces are common and androids just gained consciousness and some accidents happens to their owner time to time.
If you want to have a look for yourself the 1st issue is currently free.
I liked the zen futuristic aspect of this issue and will probably give the other issues a try sometimes. I’m not sure where it is going yet and hope it may have some Madeline Ashby in it.

What I read…07/14 Top 5 Comics.

In addition to standard books, I do read a lot of comics. So much so that I had to request a monthly budget to Celine to keep everything under control. To read them I exclusively use the ipad as I don’t miss the physical contact and love the fact that it doesn’t take any room in our apartment. I use comixology for 95% of the read and Dark Horse/Kindle for 5% remaining. What I’m looking generally is an interesting story full of characters but I’m very eclectic. I discovered a lot of comics through free issues. They are either #0 issues that are introductions to the universe or free issues part of a promotion to bring new readers. My top five as of today is:

1.Saga: Alana and Marko come from 2 nations at war but love each other against all odds. From their love, is born Hazel, their daughter. Saga is the story of this loving family. For fans of fantasy and space opera.  From Brian K.Vaughan and Fiona Staples.
Saga2. Revival: The countryside. The dead coming back one day…For the fans of The Returned for the theme and the ambiance. From Tim Seeley and Mike Norton.
Revival3. The Walking Dead: Before being a hit serie on AMC, TWD was a comic from Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard. It is the story of Rick’s posse in a world where zombies  run wild.
The Walking Dead4. East of West: A tale of the end of the world with the apocalypse, death and the 4 horsemen. From Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta.
East of West5. Wasteland: Post apocalyptic adventure set 100 years after the “Big Wet” by Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten.

And you, do you read comics? If no why? If yes, what do you like? What do you read?
