Sunday Preview: Waiting For Duffman

the-simpsons-waiting-for-duffman-127342

When Duffman undergoes hip replacement surgery and retires, the company sets up a reality show competition to find his replacement. Homer wins the competition, and because the job requires him to stay sober, he learns that beer isn’t as necessary as he thought to have a good time.

Oh boy, temporarily sober Homer wins a reality show.  Apparently the guest voice is Cat Deeley, who is the host of an actual FOX reality show, according to my wife.

I am not planning on watching this crap tonight, as watching the preview clips was awful enough, but I am going to go out on a limb and state that there is no way all of the humor in this entire episode will add up to the scene from “Duffless” where Homer gets kicked out of AA for eating the dirt under the bleachers.  Neither will the combined visual comedy from this entire episode reach a level that will compare to seeing Homer shakily scratch off day 30 on his calendar during that same episode.  By the way, I really like “Duffless”.

Sunday Preview: Sky Police

sky-police-promo-2-126194

Chief Wiggum is mistakenly delivered a military jet pack, which he gleefully accepts and uses in order to fight crime. But when the jet pack crashes into the church, the congregation, led by Marge, must resort to gambling and counting cards in order to collect money to repair the church.

If Gerry Cooney doesn’t have a cameo in this I am going to be upset.  I’d say “This could be a whole new beginning for Springfield”, but I’d be a bald-faced liar.

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.

Sunday Preview: My Fare Lady

my-fare-lady-promo-1-122748

Fed up with the thankless task of chauffeuring her children around, Marge works for a transportation app service. Homer bankrupts Moe, with Moe being forced to work as a janitor at the power plant.

Oh boy. A zombisode on the topical issue of taxi apps. Also I would like to point out that almost nine years ago to the date they already spun a title off of “My Fair Lady” with the 2006 blockbuster “My Fair Laddy” But now I am just complaining for the sake of it.  Also Christopher Lloyd and Rich Sommer are guest stars.  Rich is on Mad Men, but although I like that show I couldn’t have told you that if I hadn’t have looked it up. In fact the character he voices is named “Young Man”. That will look good on his resume next to multiple seasons of Mad Men.

Sunday Preview: Walking Big & Tall

Walking_Big_&_Tall_promo_4

Lisa discovers that Springfield’s anthem was lifted from another town, so she composes a new one, while Homer gets a big lesson in “Wide Pride.”

Tonight’s guest hat is Pharell Williams. I find him to be quite entertaining, but I since I find zombie simpsons most unentertaining, I guess I will just have to miss whatever hijinks that are in store for him tonight.

Sunday Preview: The Musk Who Fell To Earth

musk1

When inventor Elon Musk  arrives in Springfield and befriends Homer, the two revolutionize the nuclear plant. But the ambitious Musk soon has Mr. Burns seething and Burns tries to have him removed, forcing Homer to make a tough decision.

While I find the real life Elon Musk to be a relatively interesting person, I have absolutely zero desire to see him interact with zombie Homer.  At least they didn’t try to rope him and SpaceX into the insane Kang and Kodos episode from a few weeks back.

Sunday Preview: Bart’s New Friend

Bart's_New_Friend_Promo_1

Homer is hypnotized at a circus into believing he is ten years old. Bart has fun with him at first, making him his new best friend and accomplice. However, it becomes a pain when the hypnotist dies and the family is unable to turn Homer into his old self again

So I guess this was originally written by Judd Apatow more than 2 decades ago.  On just that fact alone I would be intrigued, but now that Al Jean has had his greasy mitts on it, I believe I won’t be all that inclined to switch on FOX tonight.
