The intelligence behind the Simpson’s is what has helped it stand the test of time, as well appeal to every level, of every age of every walk of life. And there is no character within the Simpsons that has more comedic depth and diversity than McBain:
Actually this was never my opinion, until CollegeHumour informed me of the comedy behind the comedy. Apparently, if you place each mini-sode of McBain back to back in chronological order, it will create its own story line.
I thought this was a blindingly clever concept, another example as to how deep the comedy crimson of The Simpsons really does run. Good work Groening.
