What is Simpsons Mania?

Hi everybody! If you hadn't already guessed, I love the Simpsons. Love, love, love it! Ever since I was five years old, too young to actually understand any of the jokes, the Simpsons has been one of my all-time favourite shows on TV. So it only seemed fitting to create a Simpsons themed Wikispace! That's what Simpsons Mania is - my tribute to this awesome show! On here you'll be able to find character bios, information about the actors, a collection of my own personal, favourite clips, and much more. So please, enjoy!


A Brief History of the Simpsons

The Simpsons was created by animator Matt Groening in 1987 and became a standalone television series in 1989. In a matter of just a few short years, the Simpsons skyrocketed in popularity and quickly became an internationally recognized symbol of the 1990s. Since its creation, the Simpsons has become one of the most popular shows in television and has since become the longest running American animated series. Currently in its twenty-third season, the show has been criticized by many due to its often controversial subject matter. More recently, the series has been criticized of declining quality, with many saying the show no longer has the charm it once did. The Simpsons has become an important part of modern culture, with popular catchphrases such as Homer's "D'oh" being accepted into the English language. (Information retrieved from: Ortved, John.

My Bio

So I suppose you want to know a bit about me, huh? My name is Connor Flack. I am eighteen years old and am in first year Commerce at the Telfer School of Management. I have brown hair, blue eyes, and am overall just a pretty normal, boring-looking guy. My favourite TV shows are the Simpsons (try not to look so shocked), the Office, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, and 24. I love to act, and I was in four plays in high school (two plays and two musicals). I have a love for drama, but also for math and anything math-related. I don't know what else to say except I hope to either own a business sometime in my life, or help to create a business from the bottom-up! (email: cflac088@uottawa.ca)
