PopcultureAsylum’s Must Watch Episodes For The Every Simpsons Ever Marathon

Simpsons_FamilyPictureThe Simpsons have been around for 25 years. They’ve been around for 4 presidential administrations (3 of which served 2 terms each), outlived numerous TV shows, and contributed to several pop culture history-making moments.
