IGN's Simpsons Feature

Simpsons News — Posted 07 Sep, 2006 by Scott

This week in the run-up to the Season 18 Premiere, IGN is running a Simpsons Feature on their website, culminating with a first for the Simpsons - you will be able to watch the first seven minutes of the premiere episode, "The Mook, The Chef, The Wife and His Homer" before it airs this Sunday!! How cool is that?!

They started last Friday with an interview with Al Jean, in which he spills a few beans about upcoming episodes.

It continued on Tuesday with the Top 25 guest star appearances and on Wednesday they published a list of their Top 25 peripheral Simpsons characters.

The ordering in the guest stars list is hard to understand - for example Glenn Close's excellent appearance as Homer's mother was at the bottom - and there are notable guest stars absent, such as Michelle Pfeiffer as Mindy, Patrick Stewart as the Stonecutters' Number One, and Lawrence Tierney as Don Brodka. The winner is very deserving though. The characters list is put together more thoughtfully, with the likes of Ralph Wiggum, Barney Gumble and Comic Book Guy achieving high places.
