5.0 out of 5 stars Simpsons Beyond Forever ROCKS!!!!!!! Feb. 24 2004
Wow, The Simpsons has been around a LONG TIME! Right now, they're on Season 15 and the hit show doesn't look like it will end anytime soon. Of course, the episodes are kind of stupid now and some are losing interest. The Simpsons Beyond Forever covers season 11 and 12. The book is basically a really detailed episode guide. Inside, there is an Itchy and Scratchy Filmography, Homer's D'OHS! and his mmm's, and of course, the couch gags. But, that's only part of the book.
Also, they tell everything you need to know about each episode in seasons 11 and 12. There's the stuff Bart writes on the chalkboard, quotes from the episode, a summary and hilarious pictures. With 2 pages for each episode, they have plenty of room to fit anything they want on it. They even do a The Stuff You May Have Missed section for every episode. They have even more information for the Treehouse of Horror episodes. 4 WHOLE PAGES! The episodes aren't even that great!
The book, I wouldn't consider short, but not long. The first book(The Simpsons) almost has 100 more pages than Beyond Forever! But, Beyond Forever has enough information that the few pages don't really matter.
You'll find EVERYTHING you need to know about season 11 and 12 in this book. Basically, it's amazing. I would reccommend this true work of art to any Simpsons fan. You could watch one Simpsons episode and still find this book interesting. Seasons 11 and 12 weren't included in the drop of ideas that has suddenly come into The Simpsons. The wonderful episode HomR lets you discover Homer's only stupid because he lodged a crayon up his nose as a kid. Plus, there's the crazy Trilogy of Error episode where it tells where Homer's finger was cut off by Marge and her brownies.
All in all, this book is AWESOME! Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmm...Episode Guides Nov. 27 2002
The third episode guide to The Simpsons television show continues to chronicle the exploits of "america's favorite family". As I read through this book, I found myself laughing out loud, just as I had with the other two guides. The Simpsons' creators pack so many gags into a single show, that even a die had fan like me, can't possibly catch every joke. Therefore, these gudes are a must have, and "Beyond Forever", continues that fine tradition. Laid out in the same fashion of the other books in the series, this particular volume, covers seasons 11 and 12. Each episode gets at least a page, sometimes two. devoted to it, and all of its minute details. As usaual, Creator Matt Groening, provides the introduction. Lyrics for the songs from each year are displayed, couch gags, guest stars, who does what voice, and many other staples of the show are given a few pages as well. Something new to the mix, this time though, are never before seen character, prop, and background sketches, complete with comments from the Simpsons staff. The book has 127 pages and comes highly recommended for anyone who needs to smile now and then

4.0 out of 5 stars Egh Nov. 26 2002
By no means is this a step up or an improvement from the other outstanding guides to "The Simpsons." In fact, a bit of a step down.
You get your memorable quotes from episodes, your summaries, your "Movie Moments," etc. But my favorite part about the other guides was the little box that pointed out the "Things You May Have Missed." That box doesn't seem too thorough in this guide:
There are always more and more "in-jokes" in the newer episodes...so why does this guide talk about them less than any of the others? It doesn't make sense; it was a little disappointing.
What you'll find in those boxes in this new guide are a bunch of tidbits that waste time...they point out bits such as, "Bart is wearing his lucky hat in this scene, which he hasn't worn in two seasons." It's too bad that the writers missed things that I, a regular fan, can find without even taping the episode and using the pause button. But everything else was up to par!

5.0 out of 5 stars So fun! Nov. 1 2002
It's hard to say more about this book than I have about the prior two, but to summarize: if you are a Simpsons fan, you need "The Simpsons Beyond Forever", and its predecessors, "The Simpsons Forever" and "The Simpsons Forever Cont'd". Like the other two, the current edition follows the same format: each episode is reviewed in detail, and there are pages for such miscellaneous items as when Homer says "D'oh!", songs, etc. For each episode, the reader is treated to a plot summary, stills from the episode, what the couch and chalkboard gags are, and "Stuff you might have missed". The last item is particularly enjoyable, because there is always so much going on in any given episode, it is almost impossible to keep up with it all. In particular, there are many pop culture and movie tributes that are clarified.
I'll always love The Simpsons, but these books take watching the show to a whole new level, whether it's figuring out that voice cameo that's driving you nuts, or catching a joke that came and went too fast. Moreover, these books are just fun to look at, they are brightly colored, creatively arranged, and printed with the highest quality. This is a must have for any Simpsons fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun and Insightful Book Oct. 31 2002
If you are a fan of the Simpsons, which I do not doubt if you are considering buying this book, I strongly urge you to pick this up. I have the two other Ultimate Simpsons books, and while seasons 11 & 12 are not the best the show has to offer, this is far and away the best of the three. Each show gets a 2 page synopsis, except for the two treehouse of horrors, which get 4 a piece. More quotes and more "stuff you may have missed" can only be a good thing. I was a little disappointed with the second book, with its lackluster plot retelling and lack of groundbreaking material. This one on the other hand is much better in both of these departments. Not only do you get the expanded information for each episode, but also included are rough sketches from the particular season (4 pages of these). You get to see early sketches of such characters as Xena from the Treehouse of Horror XI episode, Kid Rock from the Spring Break episode, as well as the show's regulars. Very interesting to see.
This book follows the same format as previous versions but for the first time expands on the original idea. If you have the other two Simpsons books, you will not be disappointed with this one. If you are a fan of the show, I recommend this and the other two books to you. It is a must have. A truly entertaining and insightful book!
