James has always enjoyed watching The Simpsons with his daddy. It's been something we've shared since his birth. At an extremely early age he was able to recognize Homer and identify him on sight. He's become a big fan in his own right.
What freaks me out these days is his ability to name the characters from Springfield. He's been able to do this for Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie for quite some time, but recently he's begun doing this for the secondary characters. Show him a photo of Simpsons charactes and he'll point to them one by one and tell you their respective names. Krusty the Clown, Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner, Edna Krabappel, Groundskeeper Willie, Chief Wiggum, Apu, Barney, Moe, Milhouse, Nelson, Ralph, Mr. Burns, Smithers, Grandpa Simpson, Sideshow Bob, Comic Book Guy, Lenny, Carl, Snake, Otto and so on. It's quite impressive.
As much as that freaks me out, what really gets me is his knowledge of the more obscure characters from The Simpsons. I'm referring to people like Disco Stu, Kearny, Dolph, Uter and Hans Moleman. This boy truly is a prodigy.
