Homer's Odyssey: An Embiggened Simpsons Guide [9781780898261]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Remember when The Simpsons was the funniest show on television? The Simpsons is the longest running comedy in history. Gracing our screens since 1987, with over 600 episodes, the show is a cultural phenomenon. Whilst it is still drawing huge ratings numbers, there is no argument that during the 90s the show was at its zenith. No other comedy has had as big an impact on society.

The Simpsons has influenced the way we communicate with each other. Niche quotes and references have become the secret handshake of millions around the world. In the course of this book, we remember the iconic characters - Hank Scorpio and Lionel Hutz, Rex Banner and Frank Grimes - and we dissect seminal episodes such as Cape Feare, Marge Vs the Monorail and Who Shot Mr. Burns. From celebrity cameos to musical moments, from hidden jokes to insane trivia, this is the essential companion to golden age of The Simpsons.

Homer's Odyssey is a hilarious, intelligent and in-depth analysis of the greatest show on earth. So grab yourself a Flaming Moe, settle into your groove on the couch, and enjoy our guide to your favourite yellow family.


AUTHOR: Four Finger Discount has quickly established itself as one of the most entertaining shows about The Simpsons. Dando & Mitch present their weekly podcast from Australia and look at every episode of the Simpsons, starting from the very beginning. It is a must listen for any discerning fan who misses the golden age of the show. Brendan Dando: After studying a bachelor of Public Relations and Marketing at Deakin Waurn Ponds, Brendan shifted his focus to a career in radio, working for a number of stations in the Geelong region. It was here that he established his love for podcasting, which, combined with his experience in social marketing resulted in him hosting a number of successful podcasts of his own, the most prominent being Four Finger Discount. Brendan has a passion for TV and film, his two favourite films being E.T & The Empire Strikes Back. He's an avid Beatles fan and when he's not talking about The Simpsons, you can find him supporting his beloved Geelong Cats in the AFL. Mitchell Grinter: The oldest of five siblings, Mitch has always had a great passion for reading and writing, as well as film and television. As a young boy, these activities provided him a means of entertainment, but as he has grown, he has looked to turn them into a career. In the past, Mitch has written, produced, directed and starred in several stage-plays, taking home several awards along the way. His relaxed and relatable on-stage persona has carried into his writing, where he has been able to deliver engaging and easy to read material. Homer's Odyssey is his first book, and with two more fiction projects in the works, it is the beginning of a career he has long dreamed of. Mitch is the co-host of the successful podcast, Four Finger Discount. He lives in Geelong with his wife, Ashleigh, and their two Labradors, Murphy and Indiana.
