The Simpsons it is one of the best programs that I have seen

I believe that the best personage is Homero.

The one who creates the opposite say it here

I am hoping that the movie begins

I love the way they satirize the American society. It's just great.

I believe that also we could include the Spanish culture.

What do you think?

Simpons represents the consumist society and the Spanish culture in the last years has become consumist.

Another point is the difference of social classes

But not only in Spain but anywhere in the world

It is not that it is a specific example.
You criticize them are possible to be applied to different cultures. Not only to the American culture.

In the Simpsons to Homero is an inefficient employee.
He never does not make an effort in his work, and fellow workers either.

In the Latin societies the employees do not deliver the sufficient effort. And with that little effort they want to have many thing. And the life to have something is necessary to make an effort much.

SIMPSONS......GREAT. I watch it for a very long time (more than 10 years).

My favourite characters are:
- Homer
- Mr. Burns
- The Duffman (I like the music when the Duffman comes...OH YEAHHH)
....and many many more!!! I like every person who lives in Springfield Razz

"Simpsons the movie" was ok, but I like the "normal" TV series more than the movie.

Greetings,
LeBron
