Sunday Preview: The Princess Guide

The_Princess_Guide_promo_2

A Nigerian king comes to Springfield to finalize a deal with Mr. Burns, and Homer is assigned to keep the royal daughter out of trouble, but when he brings her to Moe’s, the barman assumes she’s related to a Nigerian prince who duped him in an email scam and plots to get back his money. However, Moe finds himself falling for her.

Does Homer still work for Burns? I don’t really watch new zombie episodes, so I don’t know what the deal is anymore.  Regardless, Homer is apparently getting yet another assignment he is dangerously unqualified for, and Moe will cry at least 4 times.  Don’t worry, there are only a few episodes left this season.

Leonard Nimoy Boldly Goes

Nimoy

“Well, my work is done here.” – Leonard Nimoy
“What do you mean, ‘Your work is done’?  You didn’t do anything.” – Barney
“Didn’t I?” – Leonard Nimoy 

The sad news today is that Leonard Nimoy, repeat Simpsons (and Futurama) guest voice, accomplished photographer, dispenser of vocal wisdom, bard of Bilbo, Shatner-putter-upper-with, and, of course, the one true Spock, died this morning.  He was 83, and you can read his full obituary here.  The best I can say about him is that he did what he told everyone else to do: lived long and prospered.

In other news, there isn’t going to be a Reading Digest this week because winter finally caught up with me and I’ve been too sick to do much beyond move back and forth between bed and couch since Tuesday.  Sorry for the late notice, but I haven’t been able to prop myself in front of a computer for more than about thirty minutes at a stretch all week.

If your weekend is going to involve as much sedentary teevee watching as mine, may I make the following Nimoy-related suggestions:

“Marge vs. the Monorail”
“The Springfield Files”
Futurama – “Space Pilot 3000″
Futurama – “Where No Fan Has Gone Before”
Star Trek – “The Galileo Seven” (<- Nimoy saves everyone)
Star Trek – “Mirror, Mirror” (<- Evil goatee Nimoy)
Star Trek – “Amok Time” (<- This one sucks except for the fight, which that link will take you right to.)
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (<- Spock dies, sniffle)
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home 
(<- Directed by Nimoy, and he gets to play a comic straight man)
Star Trek: The Next Generation – “Unification I & II”

Or you could just play Civ IV.  Feel free to leave any more suggestions in the comments.

[Edited to add: Transformers: The Movie.  How the hell did I forget he voiced Galvatron (the even more evil rebuild of Megatron) in the only Transformers movie that doesn’t suck?]

Homer vs Patty & Selma15

“Uh, I need another extension on my mortgage payments.” – Homer Simpson
“I understand that, Mr. Simpson, but according to our computer, your credit history is not good.  It says here that you’ve been pre-declined for every major credit card.  It also says that you once grabbed a dog by the hind legs and pushed him around like a vacuum cleaner.” – Bank of Springfield Guy
“That was in the third grade!” – Homer Simpson
“Yeah, well, it all goes on your permanent record.” – Bank of Springfield Guy

Homer the Smithers12

“Smithers, this beer isn’t working.  I don’t feel any younger or funkier.” – C.M. Burns
