Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball – Season 3

Hey hey there friends!

So… in case you’re new to this post series… we launched a new feature on the site where I do an audio recap of Seasons of The Simpsons plus whatever other stuff comes out of my mouth. Basically it’s all The Simpsons stuff from the weekly podcast I do. With Totbox on a hiatus from the amazing Throwback posts that I’ve come to love, this is my way of keeping some sort of throwback going and while I’ll miss the hilarity that is Totbox covering episodes of the Best. Show. Ever., I like this format. Shoutout to Alissa for even thinking of this amazing example of the power of double dipping. NOTE: Do not double dip Cheetos… not a good example.

Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball – Season 2 (Plus “The Great Phatsby”)

Hey hey there friends!

So… in case you missed it last week… we launched a new feature on the site where I do an audio recap of Seasons of The Simpsons plus new episode reviews and whatever other stuff comes out of my mouth. Basically it’s all The Simpsons stuff from the weekly podcast I do.

TSTO New Facebook Teaser..What’s Coming Next?!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

EA has just released (well ok an hr or so ago at this point…sometimes real life gets in the way of tapping ;)) a new Teaser for TSTO.

aroundtheworldfacebookteaser

It looks like our own Wookstradamus prognosticated correctly!  It appears as if we’ll be getting an Around the World event in our games very soon!  (as if the Chinese New Year theme didn’t already tip many of us off 😉 )

What are your thoughts on the event teaser?  What would you like to see in this upcoming event?  When do you think it will hit?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball – Season 1

Hey hey there friends!

So… the other week or so, Alissa told me that Totbox planned a hiatus from the amazing Throwback posts that I’ve come to love and while I’ll miss the hilarity that is Totbox covering episodes of the Best. Show. Ever., I wondered if it was time for me to step into the arena and take on each season of The Simpsons. Wow though. Writing about each episode of the show is a task and a half. How to find time to watch each one and then give it the due diligence like Tot? It seemed like something that might end up low on my honey-do list.wookieetabletfull2Of course, then coincidence and a confluence of events occurred. One of the goals we’ve had on the site is to provide a variety of different formats for content for y’all. We already have the occasional gameplay videos from Alissa and I hope you’ve checked out the 5 episodes of Addicts Live. They’re a hoot and I’ve really enjoyed being on the last few. The last frontier we hadn’t crossed yet was just doing a podcast. But wait… I’m already doing that. In case you missed my blatant self-promotion from a few months back, I have been recording a podcast of my own where I ramble on about life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. I’ve been having a great time and somehow have kept the show going for 23 episodes. This is where we get to said coincidence. Continue reading

Addicts Want to Know: Addicts Favorite Simpsons Christmas Episodes (the Results)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So last week we asked you guys to participate in a fun little survey where we would vote to rank the top 14 Simpsons Christmas Episodes. And the results are in!

Not only have I gathered your favorite Christmas episode rankings, but I also checked in with Patric, Bunny and Wookiee to see where they ranked the episodes.  Let’s take a look…

Addicts Want to Know: Ranking the Simpsons Christmas Episodes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So I thought I’d take a little break from the event and grab an opinion poll of the Addicts Community.

As I talked about on Addicts Live! last weekend, I recently came across an article online that ranked the best Simpsons Christmas episodes.  Of course this article was written in 2014, so before this year’s Nightmare After Krustmas episode aired…so it leaves that one off.

3376

So as I was reading the article, I thought it would be fun to see where the Addicts Community ranks each episode and we could share the results prior to Christmas.  So if you don’t mind, take a moment to rank each of the 14 episodes from best (1) to worst (14) in the poll below and we’ll share the results next week….

Scroll down/left to view all of the ranking options.

If you’re having trouble using the form above, here’s the direct link

For those curious here’s the article where they ranked each episode, and why. And here’s the ranking order (since I know sometimes those slideshows can be annoying):
13. She of Little Faith
12. Simpsons Christmas Stories
11. Tis’ the Fifteenth Season
10. White Christmas Blues
9. Grift of the Magi
8. The Fight Before Christmas
7. Kill Gill Volumes I & II
6. Holidays of Future Passed
5. I Won’t Be Home for Christmas
4. Skinner’s Sense of Snow
3. Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire
2. Marge Be Not Proud
1. Miracle on Evergreen Terrace

I should note that I came across another list, which I discussed on Addicts Live! where Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire was ranked at number 1, and everything else was ranked totally different.  That list can be found here, and it had them ranked:
13. White Christmas Blues
12. Kill Gil , Volumes I & II
11. Skinner’s Sense of Snow
10. I Won’t Be Home for Christmas
9. Tis the Fifteenth Season
8. Simpsons Christmas Stories
7. The Fight Before Christmas
6. Holidays of Future Passed
5. The Grift of the Magi
4. Miracle on Evergreen Terrace
3. She of Little Faith
2. Marge Be Not Proud
1. Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire

Basically the only one these two lists agreed on is Marge Be Not Proud is the 2nd best Christmas Episode.

And for those who haven’t yet seen The Nightmare After Krustmas, here’s what the “experts” are saying about it….we’ll have an episode re-cap up from Wookiee soon.

What are your thoughts on the best and worst Simpsons Christmas episodes? Thoughts on the two different lists?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
