The Simpsons in its heyday produced some of the most subversive, absurd and outright hilarious sitcom episodes of all time and narrowing down my top ten has been so difficult and over time I will probably change my mind. There will of course be some contentious opinions as many iconic episodes- there are probably about fifty or more classics- and you could really choose anything between seasons three and eight and they'd be nothing wrong with any of your choices. The ranking may see absurd at times and will be incredibly debatable but that's the problem when a show was so consistently great as The Simpsons was in the 90s and rest assured there will be nothing from season 9 and onward.
Greetings, Vocal readers. 2020 will be here before you know it, so before 2019 comes to an end, here’s a look back at some cosplayers I was fortunate to interview this year. I’ll have more interviews coming in the New Year, but before I go any further, I want to let everyone know that if you liked any of my articles I’ve written this year, please feel free to send me a one-off tip, which is located at the end of every article. No tip is ever too big or small. It’ll help me and other Vocal readers to write better stories. So without further ado, here are some amazing cosplayers that I’ve interviewed this year, in no particular order.
Before Marvel’s fabled MCU DC had their own interconnecting universe on the small screen known as the DC animated universe (DCAU). It’s cantered around numerous animated shows and movies starting with Batman: The Animated Series in 1992 and includes other shows such as Superman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond as well as others. The latest addition to the universe came this year with Justice League vs the Fatal Five. Despite many of us growing up and enjoying this universe it without a doubt hides a darker side for many of these characters which can be seen if you take a closer look and think about the implications a little more. Plus, unlike many films and franchises some characters get a definitive end to their stories such as Bruce Wayne’s version of Batman. Yes there are also numerous comic series that are meant to be continuations of numerous DCAU shows however, there are numerous continuity issues in them so they wont be counted here.
With Avengers: Endgame on the horizon and the MCU’s (Marvel Cinematic Universes) 10 year arc is almost done it has to be wondered what major overarching villain will be the big bad of the MCU now that the Mad Titan’s story will seemingly come to an end in Endgame. With the acquisition of the Disney/Fox deal there are a large amount of possibilities for Marvel to choose from.
We have seen a plethora of Disney classics get the live-action treatment, including Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King (well that was sort of live-action). These films made bank at the box office due to the childhood nostalgia coming to life. However, one could argue that the remakes don't deserve to get by on nostalgia alone. Most of the remakes appear to be photocopies of their animated counterparts. Some viewers love that, others are upset by the lack of originality. With all that in mind, there are some Disney animated tales that I hope do not get the live-action treatment.

Amongst nerds who love anime, there is one subject that is even more controversial than such classic arguments as whether or not the Star Wars Christmas Special is cannon. When it comes to anime, the big debate is whether or not it’s better to watch the sub or the dub. It’s a topic so contentious at conventions that entire screening rooms can burst out in vicious brutal screaming matches as the unruly cosplay masses vie to see which continent can shout down the other side. On one side, the sub contingent believes that most anime is better heard in its original language. Voice acting is treated as a much bigger deal over in Japan where some VO performers are treated like superstar idols.
If you just got Disney+ then I'm sure all the endless content is probably overwhelming. Don't worry, I am here to help. Here are 12 recommendations of what to watch next on Disney+.
