Sam Simon: 1955-2015

Co-creator of The Simpsons, and executive producer seasons 1-4 ie when it was still the greatest TV programme ever made.
Made Lisa a true radical and Waylon Smithers gay...

Update: Brilliantly, Pink News don't mention Smithers but remind readers he once donated to save a 'gay bull'. Shit.

  1. In similar vein, the actor Hugh Walters died recently. The only people who noticed are Doctor Who fans, but his supporting role in the underwhelming 1971 sitcom The Fenn Street Gang means he played the first recurring gay character on a British sitcom and I think on British TV in general.
