Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (11):

Overall, there's nothing spectacularly new or innovative on this straightforward promotional site, just standard fan food with lots to view and even more to sell. If you're familiar with The Simpsons, none of the crass, silly, and sometimes not-good-for-kids behavior will be a surprise on this site. Yet an odd sequence in the intro to the Character Bios section showing buxom women vying for job by kissing the boss in a janitor's closet may cross the line into the questionable social message arena for the 13-year-old group recommended for this site.

The Forum area is probably of most concern for parents, as it's not regularly monitored. Surprisingly, it generally sticks to topical -- albeit often silly -- Simpsons information: "Homer=The Greatest Man in television history." Reply: "Homer=Figure of Religion." Once in a while an iffy comment does appear on the boards: "sex, drugs, rock'n'roll…speed, weed, birth-controll…lifes a bitch, than u die..fuk the world and lets get high," but they are few and far between. Users have to enter a DOB and e-mail address to post something, but everyone is able to read the messages.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
