Thanks to Major League Baseball, THOH XXIII will air an hour earlier tonight. That should give you an extra hour before bed to try and forget that you watched it.
Destined to be yet another classic episode, in the opening segment we go back to Ancient times as a Mayan Homer and Marge witness the prediction by the ancient calendar makers that 2012 will be the end of the world.
In “The Greatest Story Ever Holed,” the first of three stories, the Springfield Subatomic Supercollider creates a black hole that terrorizes the city, sucking up everything in its path. In “UNnormal Activity” the Simpsons install cameras all over the house when things start to go bump in the night and Marge discovers it may have to do with an unholy pact she made years prior. In the third tale, “Bart & Homer’s Excellent Adventure,” Bart travels to 1974 to buy a comic book at cover price but inadvertently disrupts Homer & Marge’s courtship, leading Marge to end up with Artie Ziff (guest voice Jon Lovitz).
I got nothing much to say about any of that. Enjoy, or don’t.
