What will happen when every episode of 'The Simpsons' is at your fingertips?
Every 'The Simpsons' episode is going online 'The Simpsons': FXX to air every episode in 12-day marathon.All 552 episodes of "The Simpsons" will be available online. Let's do some math, shall we? At 22 minutes per episode, that's 12,144 minutes. 202.4 hours. 8.4333 days of literally nothing but watching "The Simpsons".
This October, FXX will launch “Simpsons World,” a portal/wormhole that will allow viewers to access every single freakin’ episode of the series—552, at last count—through their computers, phones, or Krusty the Klown Alarm Klocks (warning: gets extremely hot when plugged in). All seasons of the animated comedy—25, at last count—will be searchable (bring me… every Barney belch????), and you will be able to both create your own playlists with the archive and share your favorite clips.
If I took 6 hours a day to sleep and knocked a couple more hours a day to account for food, basic hygiene, etc., it would be 12.65 days straight. If I watched a mere four hours a day, it would take over 50 days to see the entire series.
Now, I yield to no one in my undying love for "The Simpsons" (well, at least for the first 15 or so seasons, before the writing *really* got stupid). I may very well sit down for chunks of time and watch the entire series.
Then again, the steady decline in quality might just be too depressing...
