I didn’t know exactly who Conan O’Brien was really until last night. Turns out this flame-haired funny man helped create the The Simpsons with a bunch of other super-intelligent and hilarious men back in the day. Conan’s wry humour is the magic behind countless episodes, perhaps most notably the monorail episode, which he says in this film was inspired by, well, riding on a monorail.
What’s so great about seeing all these great guys chewing the fat around a table just as they did years ago is not just getting insider jokes and stories that are gold to any Simpsons fan (everyone) but just seeing all these old pals reunite to do what old pals do best: mercilessly taking the piss out of each other and reminiscing on the G.O.O.D times.
