Homer and Bart Simpson are the same age now
January 28th, 2020 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

On January 14th, The Simpsons celebrated 30 years of being on our televisions. Even though the show is 30, the characters have not aged a day since it premiere in 1990.

That fact made the show’s Executive Producer Al Jean ponder something about his two lead males. He wrote, “If Homer is 39 he was born in 1980 which is when we said Bart was born.”

I would say more, but this made my head hurt so much, I cannot think. That, and because I am stuck on that fact that next year Bart will be older than his dad. Ouch!


The Simpsons carve up a scary Thanksgiving episode
November 24th, 2019 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p, The Simpsons does something it has never done before, they are going to do a scary episode like Treehouse of Horrors.

The first tale gives our favorite Springfield residents feathers. As in they are turkeys during the first Thanksgiving. Who will gobble their way into your heart as a turkey? You will have to watch to find out. That and to see which dead character is revived for tonight.

Talk about being revived, Marge is turned into an Alexa type of device. Since she has feelings she doesn’t want to die, even though that is what the real Marge wants. Which Marge will win?

Next up, The Simpsons go to space for a futuristic Turkey Day. While celebrating the holiday they get attacked by a creature that sucks up all of their bones. Who will survive and who will be turned into jelly?

All leading to the scariest story of them all in the credits…

Hopefully, this will become a tradition for the other holidays too. I also want them to take Christmas and April Fool’s Day like this.


The Simpsons celebrates its 666th episode with Treehouse of Horror XXX
October 20th, 2019 under The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on Fox, The Simpsons will do what no other scripted show has done. It will air its 666th episode. If you are going to have an episode reach that magical number, then you have to do something extra special. How about airing their annual Halloween show Treehouse of Horror.

The episode starts off us with finding out about Maggie’s true origin. Let’s just say she is not really Homer and Marge’s daughter. Whose daughter is she? Plus, you want to watch to see how they completely ruin Nemo for us. What they revealed cannot be unseen…

Then it is time for them to take on Stranger Things or as they call it Danger Things. Milhouse goes missing and now they have to find him. Lisa is not the only one who gets a new look for this segment.

I have some bad news to tell you to prepare for the next story, Homer is dead. Wait, it was not his time. He gets to come back as a different person. He will choose many bodies until he gets the right one. Is there a right one?

Finally, Selma meets a man and they really hit it off. There is just a catch. One that will make her have to choose between him and everyone else. Who will she choose?

There is a reason why The Simpsons has made it to its 666th episode. No matter how many episodes they do, the show never gets old. Tonight’s episode proves it is just like a fine wine, it gets better with age. Even though they haven’t aged a day in 31 seasons.

Now let’s talk about the XXX in the title. How can you have XXX in the title and not do something a little sexier? If you know what I mean? I get that it is a kids’ show, but there are ways to do it so that the XXX is more like PG-13?


Animation Domination dominates Sundays again
September 29th, 2019 under Fox, Seth MacFarlane, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

It is time for us all to be a little more animated again because Fox Sundays are back doing what they do best. Making us laugh with their animated shows.

The Simpsons start it off at 8p. Homer and Bart go viral and they become the biggest thing on the internet. How will they handle their newfound celebrity status? How long until they mess it up?

Talking about messing things up, perfect student Lisa gets in trouble tonight. So much so, she is sentenced to detention. When a corporate entity buys detention, Lisa decides to fight it. Because that is what she does.

The Simpsons, at 31, might be older than a lot of their viewers, but this show never gets old.

Then at 8:30p, we get to meet Bless The Harts. This is not an easy show to describe, but it is a show about family.

Jenny Hart (Kristen Wiig) lives with her mother Betty (Maya Rudolph) and daughter Violet (Jillian Bell). As if three women living together in tight small house, struggling to pay bills, is not hard enough, her boyfriend also lives with them.

That is enough to make Jenny go crazy. Instead, it makes the girl from High Point, NC have conversations with Jesus. That Jesus.

Maybe one way to describe it is King of the Hill meets Bob’s Burgers.
Which gets us to Bob’s Burgers that moves to 9p. Bob decides to do something very special for Linda for their wedding anniversary. Since he never bought her a ring when they got engaged, he decides to give her one now. He does not want her to find it, so he hides it in a secret place.

However, it is not that secret because their children find it. Gene decides to try it on, and it gets stuck on his finger. It does not want to come off, so he decides it leave it on when they go to the water park,

What happens to your fingers when they are wet for a long period of time? They get skinnier and the ring falls off. Since they were all over the park, they have no idea where it fell off.

Will they be able to find it or is Bob’s romantic gift lost forever? You will want to tune in for a very sweet episode.

Finally at 9:30p, the night is not over until the fat guy sings and Peter Griffin is singing on Family Guy

But first, he has a heart attack when his bosses reveal that someone is going to be fired at work. Turns out it was just a panic attack, but it is way a really bad one. His doctors tell him to get some relaxation, so he goes on a cruise with several Soft Rock singers from the ’70s like Kenny Loggins and Hall & Oates.

Everything is going fine until their perfect cruise turns into the Posideon Adventure. If you have never seen that movie? Where have you been because there are three versions of it? Sorry, now four!

Anyways, out of all of tonight’s episodes, this one had me laughing the hardest. In fact, it is the funniest sitcom episode of the week on broadcast. I know this because I saw them all except Mom and Bless This House.


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.
