Sunday Preview: Lisa With An “S”


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


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


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


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


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.


Sunday Preview: Cue Detective


Scotty Boom, a Chew Network super-chef, challenges Homer to a smoke-off. But when someone steals Homer’s secret weapon – a smoker he bought off a mysterious man at a BBQ shack – Lisa and Bart are on the case.

Edward James Olmos and Bobby Moynihan guest star tonight, but I doubt it will be as entertaining as it should be to cross Battlestar with seven years of SNL.  Fun fact for the week: my dog is named Craigory James Olmos (we call him Craig).  Obviously he is named after the elder guest star we have tonight.  So I got that goin’ too!


Sunday Preview: Every Man’s Dream


Homer is diagnosed with narcolepsy — but instead of returning home with his prescription medication — he returns home drunk. He and Marge visit a marriage counselor and have a trial separation, during which Homer begins dating a 20-something.”

Here we go, welcome to season 49. Oh wait, what’s this? Homer has another love interest and his marriage to Marge is in jeopardy, AND they separate?? AAANNNDDD There is a trendy guest star??????

I can see what went down in the writer’s room now:

Writer 1: I have the perfect idea for the season opener.  We have Homer and Marge break up again and Homer can meet another woman, and also move out I guess.

Writer 2: I feel like we did this several times before…. Will there be a couple of gay guys or Weird Al again?

Writer 1: Even better. We got Lena Dunham and her friends from that show we don’t watch. That’s kind of like a couple of gay guys and Weird Al, only, you know, gayer.

Writer 2: Sure, whatever. Wait, what show are we writing for again?

Head Writer: Hey, if you ladies are done clucking I need someone to help me finish this ‘autobiography’ of Rupert before he gets back from the puppy and kitten slaughterhouse tomorrow morning.

… That’s probably close. Enjoy the show or don’t, I obviously won’t.
