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

I keep all (currently) three books near the TV, and I'll review the pages for each episode before I watch the rerun. In doing so, it opens my eyes to a lot of the little details that I missed the first fifty times I saw the episode.
Essentially, this is the owners manual for seasons 9 and 10.
On the other hand, the fact that this only covers two seasons, as compared to the original eight, bothers the economical sie of me. While yes, there is some material that ties Season 9 and 10 to Seasons 1 - 8, I don't always know if it si worth the price. Were it not a continuation of a great first book, this would be grossly overpriced.
As it is, though, The Simpsons Forever!...Continued is a worthy successor and helps keep the Simpsons Mania going.
"The Simpsons Forever" uses the same grid format as the first book, which makes it very easy to find that favorite quote or missed moment. Likewise, it is an equally high quality item, featuring the same beautiful color and heavy-duty paper. Finally, it has some nice extras at the end, including a tribute to Troy McClure (the late Phil Hartman) and a listing of who does what voice (which has provided some closure to the endless guessing my wife and I subject each other too!).
If you are a fan of The Simpsons, you definitely want to pick this up. Whether you read it cover to cover, or just keep it handy when watching the show, it is great fun. Also, as the seasons are released on DVD, it will make for an excellent companion volume to the discs.
And now after I've finished this book, i have no urge/need to actually watch all those back episodes on my VCR. I'm fully satiated, thanks to "Simpsons Forever".
An updated continuation of the original Simpsons guide book (and designed and laid-out identically), "The Simpsons Forever" is an essential part of any Simpsons fan's personal library. Not only is it packed with the same sort of info that makes the first volume a winner, it also includes lyrics to many of the show's hilarious songs. This is a fitting tribute to one of the show's major components- the brilliant work of composer Alf Clausen (and the various writers who penned those crazy lyrics). And, like the original, you get plot synopses, hysterical lines and guides to the various film references "The Simpsons" includes in nearly every episode. It's all in full color, too!
So if you're jonesing on the Family Simpson, get off the couch and buy this book. Then get back on the couch and memorize it.
