The Simpsons will never die!
February 6th, 2019 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

On April 29, 2018, The Simpsons became the longest-running scripted program on primetime television beating out Gunsmoke. You would think that Fox would say this is a good time to end the show. Then you thought wrong. That is because they picked up the animated family sitcom for two more seasons. That brings their total to 32 seasons with 713 episodes…and counting.

I say…and counting because you know Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie are not going anywhere anytime soon. They will outlive us all! They are like cockroaches during a nuclear war and that is a good thing. Not roaches (we need to make them extinct already), but The Simpsons will continue to bring joy for many generations to come. Unless there is a nuclear war, then the only ones who will enjoy them will be roaches.


The Simpsons airs its first full episode tonight!
December 23rd, 2018 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1987, The Simpsons aired as shorts as part of the Tracey Ullman Show. On December 17, 1989, Fox gave the animated show its first full episode for Christmas. The rest is history. As in it is in the history books for having the most episodes of a scripted series with no end in sight.

Tonight at 8p, Fox takes us back to the beginning and will air that very first full episode. The characters might not age, but their voices and the animation has gotten so much better. It is great to see and hear how different they look and sound. The one thing that never changed is how funny this show is. Which is why it is on its 30th season and counting.

Therefore, you don’t want to miss tonight’s episode where we get to meet The Simpsons and they get to meet Santa’s Little Helper.


The Simpons turns 666 with Treehouse of Horrors XXIX
October 21st, 2018 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on Fox, The Simpsons does something that no other scripted show has done. It will air its 666th episode. To honor the special milestone, it is a Treehouse of Horrors episode. How appropriate is that?

Of course, it would have been more appropriate if the writers had one of the segments where Springfield goes to Hell, but they did not do that. Although, there are a lot of other cool stories in the episode. There is a literal killer app, Lisa loses her cool and makes Bart look like the good child and a twist on Jurassic Park that is scarier than dinosaurs.

You better watch because if not, they will dial 666 and give them your name.


Day 6 of the fall season
September 30th, 2018 under CBS, Fox, Seth MacFarlane, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

The Simpsons turn the big 3-0 tonight at 8p on Fox. In honor of the milestone, they do a couch gag that shows an iconic scene from all 30 seasons. It will remind how great this show has been during all of these decades.

Now it is time to talk about the episode. Bart gets into a really bad accident, says that he died and came back. His story gets out there and a Christain film company wants to do a movie about his experience. Homer and Flanders produce the film that will either star Gal Gadot or Emily Deschanel as Marge Simpson. Can this biopic get made without any complications? Of course not which is why we love this animated sitcom so much.

Then at 8:30p, Bob’s Burgers celebrates its 150th episode. Boyz Four, think One Direction, loses a member and they are holding auditions to replace him. Tina goes in disguise to try out and to find a cute boy she saw. While looking for him, she finds another cute boy and another one. Each has their song. If you are going to get this milestone than it is something to sing about and they are singing.

Then at 9p, Brian gets married on Family Guy. Brian wants to meet the perfect woman for him, but the only thing is that she has cancer. When she finds out it terminal, Brian offers to marry her. The two become Quahog celebrities when Tom Tucker features them on his show.

I have seen every episode of the show and I think the 2-part season premiere might the show’s worst episodes yet. Hopefully, they will get better as the season goes on because foRel is going to need it.

Over at CBS at 8:30p, Miles gets a friend request that will change his life forever on Gd Friended Me.

Miles (Brandon Micheal Hall) grew up with a father (Joe Morton) who is a reverend. When he was a kid something happened that made him lose his faith. So much so, he started a podcast saying there is no Gd.

Then he gets a friend request from Gd and he thinks it is a joke. That is until he gets another request to friend someone else. A man who is about to jump in front of a train until Miles stops him.

Miles gets a new friend request for Cara Bloom (Violett Beane). He thinks the writer is in on it, but she swears she isn’t. She needs to write a story and decides to tells Miles’ tale. Now the two of them, who need saving, try to find out why Gd wants to be his friend.

It has been 18 years since CBS cancelled Early Edition, and I have been waiting for them to do a show as good as that one. Finally, they have done it with this show. This is the only new show that a family can watch together. So sit down as one and watch this drama with your loved ones.


Disenchanted is enchanting
August 20th, 2018 under Netflix, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

Matt Groening is back with her first new animated show since Futurama and Disenchanted is absolutely enchanting. The Simpsons is set in current time (even though they don’t age), Futurama is set in the future and the show that is now streaming on Netflix now takes place in the past.

Bean (Abbi Jacobson) is the Princess of Dreamland in medieval times and she is not your traditional princess. She likes to drink, gamble and fool around. When her father, King Zøg (John DiMaggio) forces her to marry someone for an alliance to get magic, she does everything in her power not to marry him.

No matter what she does, her wedding day is finally here. When her future husband falls on the sword, it looks like she is in the free and clear. That is until her father tells her she has to marry his brother (Matt Berry). It looks like she is doomed until an elf named Elfo (Nat Faxon) crashes the wedding. Bean and her demon Luci (Eric Andre) make a run for it with Elfo.

Together the three of them will rebel against society and her father. They will seek out on new adventures and discover new places. No matter what happens, they have each other. While we have an enjoyable show to watch.

Each of the first 10 episodes is better than the one before it. All leading up to a shocking season finale that sets up the next 10 episodes that are coming to Netflix. I cannot wait to see what happens next because what has already happened is so very good.
