Video: Every single movie reference in the first five seasons of The Simpsons
Simpsons fan? Got 20 minutes to spare? Then you’ll enjoy this.
Although The Simpsons is still on the air, the majority of the show’s fans would agree that it has gone well past it’s sell-by date and that it is not a patch on the golden era back in the early days.
As such, hardcore Simpsons fans love to nostalgically recall the days when it established itself as one of the best TV shows of all time and they have another opportunity to do just that with this rather lengthy but still eeeeexcellent compilation from Next Movie of all of the film references included in the first five seasons.
Some of the references are quite subtle and some a little more explicit, but there are some classics in there, from the brilliant Raiders of the Lost Ark opening sequence to Homer taking a mad turn in ‘The Shinning’ as part of the Treehouse of Horror episode in Season Five.
As we said, it is rather long but it is a Saturday (Don't you love those lazy Saturdays?) after all, so put the kettle on, sit back and enjoy an episode-length compilation clip of when The Simpsons truly was at its best.
