So I haven’t watched The Simpsons in about a decade, maybe longer, and I’m not sure that this would make me tune in on Sunday (since it’ll be on the internet later that night), but if the Springfield family is still your bag of chips then Sunday’s episode will be a real treat.
“According to Fox, Sunday’s “Simpsons”—entitled “Take My Life, Please”—will include the first full, permanent revamp of the show’s opening titles since its premiere in 1989,” according to TV Week. “The last few seconds of the title sequence have long featured a different weekly “couch gag.” Fox also airs both a full-length and an abbreviated version of the credits.”
There’s no indication if the couch gag and Bart writing on the chalk board will remain.
UPDATE: It looks like FOX has already released the new opening title sequence. It’s not radically different, a bit longer, some new characters thrown in that weren’t featured before, etc. I like it, but I’m not wowed by it. I was hoping for something actually different and not just a slight tweaking.
