Sometimes you don’t know until you see it. From the first minute it aired in January 1993, Simpsons fans announced Margin versus the monorail as one of the best episodes of the series. Even today, with over 30 seasons under its belt, one can still claim that Margin versus the monorail has maintained its position at the top of excellent Simpsons episodes.
The episode is so honored that its writer, Conan O’Brien, gained thousands of adoring fans outside of his equally acclaimed hosting duties. In addition, some fans of O’Brien’s talk show also like the Simpsons and they have yet to learn their favorite quip, ginger late-night host wrote the episode. O’Brien is truly a man of boundless talent.
In the video linked above, Conan O’Brien sits down with Howard Stern to talk about his experience writing one of the best episodes of one of TV’s most impressive series.
