I was given the boxset for the tv series Lost for Christmas. I started watching it, and noticed that whilst the discs normally show pictures of the characters on them, the second disc for the second season had a picture of a teddy bear on it. I guess this was a missing character from the series whose story ended up on the cutting room floor, so we never got to see how they survived on the island against the polar bears.

The Simpsons

I don’t know whether I have mentioned this before, but one of my favourite tv programmes to sit down and watch every night is The Simpsons. The characters are great. The entire town of Springfield is just awesome. I have some particular favourite moments like when Moe ran into the backroom and let free the pandas, when Homer caused a nuclear meltdown in the testing van when the van didn’t contain any nuclear material, and Homer skiing down the mountain out of control.

The reason for mentioning this was because I came across a blog about the best Simpsons character, it suggested Ralph Wiggum and I have to agree. He has come out with some classic quotes like ‘I bent my wookie‘ and ‘Miss Hoover, I ate my crayon’. 🙂 It is worth reading if you like the Simpsons.
