Sunday Preview: Much Apu About Something

Much_Apu_About_Something_promo_2

Sanjay passes his stake in the Kwik-E-Mart to his millennial son, Jay, who turns it into a hip, health food market against Apu’s insistence on tradition. Bart, whom Homer had convinced to give up pranking, is called upon to return to his trickster life and take down the new store.

I will say that it’s good to know that the current waiting period to shit all over your own house is 19 years, 8 months. That was when “Much Apu about Nothing” aired.  I know this isn’t the first time zombie simpsons has parodied a Simpsons parodied title, but this is the first time it has bothered me for some reason. Anyway enjoy. Charlie tells me we have a few week’s reprieve after this one.

Sunday Preview: Paths Of Glory

Paths_of_Glory_promo_2

Lisa searches an abandoned asylum and a restaurant that caters to men in an effort to restore the damaged reputation of Springfield’s first female inventor. While at the asylum, Bart steals a notebook belonging to a homicidal patient and passes it off as his when he returns to school. When Homer and Marge find out, they start to believe their son’s a sociopath, and Bart runs with the idea.

Well I don’t think there is much I say that would add to this preview. Feminism, insane asylums, Bart causing mischief; it’s got something for everyone.  I would wager we will get to see Bart spend time in a children’s asylum or something, but that seems like a prime place for a few cameo voices and I didn’t see any guest names when I quickly checked earlier. That means nothing however, and I am not going to spend any more time on it.

Sunday Preview: Lisa With An “S”

Lisa_with_an_%22S%22_promo_1

When Homer loses $5,000 at a poker game with Broadway legend Laney Fontaine, the only way he is able to settle the bet is if he loans Lisa to Laney for a month. Then, Laney turns Lisa into a show biz kid and Marge and Homer fear they made a mistake letting her go. So they head to New York to get her back.

Well this is probably some record for laziness on my part. The episode airs 15 minutes from now and I am just putting this up. Not that it really matters. Anyway for tonight,  Homer basically sells his kid for a month to clear gambling debts, it’s a story as old as time.  I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed the sudden realization I had failed to complete the most basic of tasks that I only have to do like 20 times a year.

Sunday Preview: Friend with Benefit

Friend_with_Benefit_Promo_1

Lisa makes a new pal at school named Harper, whose internet billionaire father becomes buddies with a different Simpson: Homer. Soon, though, Lisa becomes worried that Harper is a little too entitled

Sounds like there will be some Homer shenanigans tonight, not that there isn’t in every other zombie simpsons episode, but I can’t think of anything else to write.  Kristen Bell will be the voice of Harper, so even money there is a sloth in the show at some point.

Sunday Preview: Treehouse of Horror XXVI

sideshow

After killing Bart, Sideshow Bob doesn’t know what to do with himself; Homer wakes up with short-term memory loss; Because of radiation, Lisa, Bart and Milhouse gain super-powers.

Ah Treehouse of Horror.  My favorite Halloween ever was probably the last time i ever tricked-or-treated, and FOX ran THOH I-IV back to back. In fact, I think nothing sums up The Simpsons more for me than when the house from “Bad Dream House” ultimately decides to destroy itself rather than live with the Simpson family. I doubt anything as epically awesome as that will happen tonight, but that seems like an unrealistic goal anyway.

Sunday Preview: Halloween of Horror

Halloween_of_Horror_promo_1

When Lisa becomes scared at the Krustyland Halloween Horror Night, Homer is forced to take down his Everscream Terrors decorations. Halloween pop-up employees seek vengeance on Homer for causing them to lose their jobs, and rob his house while Homer and Lisa hide out in the attic. Homer and Lisa light up their stored holiday decorations to attract attention and stand up to the intruders.

I guess we are having a pre-THOH Halloween episode tonight. Apparently in this episode, taking down decorations that I presume have already been bought and paid for causes employees of the decoration manufacturing company to lose their jobs and take to lives of crime. Nick Kroll and Blake Anderson will be wasting their talent tonight as guest stars.

Can you believe it has been almost 17 years since George Carlin and Martin Mull guest voiced in “D’oh-in’ in the Wind”? Not that it’s relevant, I just thought of them when I saw a pair of comedians lending their voices to a show that is almost 20 years past its expiration date.

Sunday Preview: Puffless

Puffless_promo_1

Upon learning that their father really died of lung cancer, Selma and Patty agree to quit smoking. When Selma relapses, an angry Patty moves in with Marge and Homer

Yo-Yo Ma will guest star as himself tonight, which is probably because it is conceivable that his guest appearance would be even more meaningless if he played a random character.  Apparently the sub-plot involves an adventure for Maggie in the animation style of “The Longest Daycare”, so prepare for that to be ruined.  Also of note is that even though I am getting considerably lazier about doing these previews, as impossible as that would seem, I am not the only one. The above image was the only usable one I could find during a 15 minute search. I couldn’t find a promo image of the A plot at all. Again I searched lazily, so there is probably something out there, but I have exhausted my effort looking for something that is usually readily available. End of rant.
