The Episode Capsules

The episode capsule is perhaps the ultimate resource file for every episode of "The Simpsons" outside of the production offices. It contains a summary of the script, reviews, and observations posted to the newsgroup for each episode. For more details, see the episode capsule FAQ or check out one of the capsules themselves. (See Sec 3.2, Sec 3.3)

With the exception of the second music video, 7F76, capsules exist for every episode, short, and music video preceeding season eight. Season Nine and Season Ten's episode capsules are in the middle of production and will be finished and released as soon as possible.

Benjamin Robinson is the current capsule compiler, replacing the previous maintainer, Frederic Briere, during the slow production of the Season Eight capsules, and during the airing of Season Nine. The originator of the episode capsules is Raymond Chen, who produced most of the capsules through Season Four. James Cherry took over capsule duties from Season Five until midway through Season Seven. Ricardo Lafaurie finished the latter half of Season Seven. Chris Baird, Dave Hall, Scott Simpson, and Juha Terho are responsible for the remaining handful of capsules not produced by Raymond Chen, James Cherry, or Ricardo Lafaurie.

Look for a revision of the first four season's episode capsules in the future.
