'The Simpsons' To Screen A Live Show: Here's How It's Possible

The Simpsons is one of those shows that is way too easy to binge watch. But luckily for those who like to take shortcuts, there is a way to watch 554 episodes of the show at once and in just 10 minutes, according to Cinema Blend.

A YouTube user named John Hatfield has come up with an idea to compile 554 episodes of The Simpsons into one video with the length of 10 minutes. And it's all while watching it with the freshly introduced 360-degree option on YouTube.

Here's the 360-degree video.

And here's the original in 2D.

The video has already been called The Simpsons sphere, and it was noted by YouTube users that in order for the video to not give a sensory overload from trying to focus on all 500 screens at once, it's easier to focus your attention on just a few screens and then play the video again and watch another few screens.

The Simpsons sphere also offers the show's fans the opportunity to see how the couch gags have been changing each episode over the past 27 years of the show's running.

It was recently reported that The Simpsons will end its episode aired on May 15 with three minutes of live footage featuring Homer Simpson, voiced by voice actor Dan Castellaneta, addressing the Twitter audience's questions.

The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean tweeted about the three minutes of live animated footage to be broadcast on Fox via his Twitter account earlier this week, according to Cinema Blend.

The episode with the live final minutes will air on May 15 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, while the East Coast and the West Coast broadcasts will feature different live scenes.

As said by Al Jean, The Simpsons' Homer will take questions straight from Twitter and deliver answers live.

The Simpsons' team will use motion capture technology in order to make Homer's voice actor Dan Castellaneta appear live in real time and answer the audience's questions. Castellaneta has delivered Homer's voice on The Simpsons since 1989.

Simpsons fans will be able to tweet their questions from May 1 through May 4, and the answers will be delivered by Homer during the show's May 15 episode. The fans must use the hashtag #HomerLive in their tweets in order for the Simpsons team to receive them.

And while the "delivering answers live" part may seem suspicious given the early deadline, it can be suggested that the Simpsons team will need 11 days to ask Twitter users for permission for their tweets to be featured live. It's a standard TV procedure, but it still might raise some doubts.

When a cultural figure makes a guest appearance on The Simpsons, it means he or she is standing at the peak of his/her career. And the most recent guest on the show is NPR Music impresario Bob Boilen, according to the Washingtonian.

It was reported on Friday that Boilen will make a guest appearance on The Simpsons during the episode that will first air last Sunday, February 21. The episode is titled "Gal of Constant Sorrow," and the All Songs Considered host will appear as an animated version of himself.

The news was announced by Boilen himself in an interview with the Washingtonian.

"I'm hosting an NPR music show but it's not 'All Songs Considered' it's called 'Mountain Trax,' so it's me, but it's not me."

The show is still something that impresses people, according to Boilen, who added that "all those things seem nice and all to most people but when I mentioned The Simpsons, jaws drop."

Boilen's likeness in last Sunday's episode of The Simpsons is spot-on, but he said that the animators still missed one thing -- a bolo tie.
