Not that I have a social life, anyway.

We have FX and FXX, but I don’t think we have FXM. Hopefully, that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to access Simpsons World. Granted, I have the first 16 seasons + season 20 on DVD/Blu-ray, but having instant access to all 25 seasons is super exciting.

At the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, FXX presented a first look at its streaming service, Simpsons World—a comprehensive, immersive streaming service built around the 552 episodes and counting of The Simpsons. Simpsons World is a digital portal to the entire Simpsons canon—like HBO Go for just the one show. In fact, the company that developed HBO Go, Huge, also worked with FX on their streaming service, FXNOW. Simpsons World will be available on FXNOW as well as SimpsonsWorld.com. And like HBO Go, Simpsons World will require authentication: Cable subscribers who get the FX bundle (FX, FXX, and FXM) will be able to access the service. (Hopefully, thousands of parents across the land will not notice their kids’ friends’ old roommates’ using their passwords to watch The Simpsons.)

But it’s Simpsons World that really showcases the vastness of the syndication deal. The streaming service has a lot of special features designed to make the back catalog of Simpsons episodes into more than just a binge-watching opportunity. A “Simpsons heartbeat” on the main page offers a scrollable graph of every episode indexed by air date and audience popularity. Options for viewing include “script view,” which unspools the script next to the viewing window as you watch, as well as specialized tours through episodes like “movie moments” that explain references to cinema. There’s also a viewing mode called “Simpsons TV” where viewers will be able to watch curated selections strung together—playlists, essentially. For example, you could choose to watch a channel that’s just “Treehouse Of Horror” episodes.

There’s the standard, Netflix-like episode guide, designed in a very Springfield palette of crayon colors. Simpsons World has exhaustive archival material, too, drawn from Matt Groening’s book of the same name. That includes character pages and signature quotes.

"For as long as there been humans we have searched for our place in the cosmos. Where are we? Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a hum-drum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people. This perspective is a courageous continuation of our penchant for constructing and testing mental models of the skies; the Sun as a red-hot stone, the stars as a celestial flame, the Galaxy as the backbone of night." – CARL SAGAN

 In celebration of Marvels announcement this week about bringing us new stories featuring a female Thor and Sam Wilson as Captain America, I thought I’d post a couple of images of their forerunners, Jane Foster from What if? #10, 1978, and Isaiah Bradley from Truth: Red, White, and Black, 2003, if only to remind anybody agitated by these announcements that they are all just stories, there is nothing truly new under the sun, and maybe given the Marvel NOW! track record for putting out really fun and innovative work, maybe we can give them the benefit of the doubt. I think there’s every chance that we are going to see some really interesting work from Marvel in the next few years…
