Fans of The Simpsons this is the day we have been waiting for.
No more mucking around with all those DVD box sets, that’s if you even still have a DVD player. No more being forced to watch whichever episode is playing on TV – every The Simpsons episode will be available whenever you want with Disney+ streaming.
What a time to be alive – indeed!
To celebrate the fact that Disney+ will launch in Australia on November 19th, costing $8.99 per month (I’d pay that just for The Simpsons), with every episode of The Simpsons (that’s 662 for those playing at home) we thought we would choose our ‘Top 11 The Simpsons Episodes of All Time’ – 10 was too hard.
A task that was not very easy at all and very controversial. So to ensure no one was physically harmed we have listed our top 11 in no particular order.
