The Simpsons has proved again why it remains the smartest show on television. They are so very good at what they do.
This Sunday is dedicated to Hayao Miyazaki, the Japanese animation genius who has decided to retire from film making. I have written before why I believe Miyazaki is much healthier for my daughters than the Disney princess industrial complex. In my opinion,, Miyazaki is by far this generations greatest family storyteller in any medium, and I am still grieving his decision to retire. I will be first in line to watch his last film, The Wind Rises, when it arrives in the states next month. In the meantime, the preview for the Simpsons is so fantastic, I may have to find a way to see the whole episode on Sunday.
Thank you to Meredith Woerner at Io9 for pointing this my way.
