THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY
"The Simpsons" has finally revamped its opening title sequence for the first time in twenty years. While some sections remain the same (Bart at the blackboard, for instance) the entire intro has undergone a major overhaul for this evening's brand spanking new HD premier. As America switches to an all-HD format, and the easily bamboozled public scrambles to buy new televisions in a state of near hysteria encouraged by unscrupulous TV salesmen (remember Y2K? Remember Kahoutek? Remember duct tape?) the creators of The Simpsons have once again presented us with ourselves, our fears and our foibles. D'oh!
