The Simpsons and Edgar Allan Poe

I realised that some people may not know who Edgar Allan Poe is. I first heard of him through The Simpsons, not the most intelligent of TV shows but still informative. There are three episodes that makes me think of Poe; The Telltale Head, Lisa's Rival, and Treehouse of Horror I. Clearly Poe is a great author to intervene with, his stories are creepy as well as memorable. I hope my story will be just as good as Poe's work and as The Simpson's re-tellings.

Watch The Telltale Head here: http://www.cucirca.com/2010/01/10/the-simpsons-season-1-episode-8-the-telltale-head/

Watch Lisa's Rival here: http://www.cucirca.com/2010/01/10/the-simpsons-season-6-episode-2-lisas-rival/

Watch Treehouse of Horror I here: http://dotsub.com/view/58591756-7128-488c-bfe9-22463d46d907

I know they're not the best representation of Poe's work, but they're very enjoyable. And I do love a bit of The Simpsons.
