    Talking Simpsons - The Simpsons Arcade With Chris Kohler

    We welcome back our friend/video game historian Chris Kohler, this time as we talk about the very first Simpsons game! Way back in early 1991, as season 2 aired, Konami released The Simpsons Arcade Game, featuring Smithers kidnapping Maggie and the family punching dozens of people to get her back. How does it hold up and what bits from the show were used? We go super in-depth into one of the few Simpsons games that's actually fun!

tornillo pros ,

Simpsons fans?

These guys know more about the Simpsons than the vast majority of folks. Sometimes they seem to take it too seriously but I guess that’s why they have a long lived podcast and I don’t.

Smart hosts fun show

They know their Simpsons and as a bonus they know games and football. What more could you ask for?

Limes Lagaard ,

Not worth It

When they talk about Simpsons it is great. The issue is, around 45% of every episode is talking about the hosts lives or social justice whining. If it was just in an isolated section you could skip it but it is spread throughout the episode. You can find a better Simpsons podcast, it won't be hard.
