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.

Sunday Preview: The Man Who Came To Be Dinner

The_Man_Who_Came_to_Be_Dinner_Promo

The Simpsons get on the wrong ride on a trip to the Dizzneeland amusement park and are transported to Kang and Kodos’ home planet, where Homer finds himself on the locals’ menu.

Happy New Year everyone.  Let us begin 2015 with what has to be one of the most outlandish plots I can remember outside of the understandably far-fetched THOH stories. I don’t know what else to say except “Sorry but there’s profit to be had.”

Sunday Preview: I Won’t Be Home For Christmas

640px-I_Won't_Be_Home_For_Christmas_promo_1

It looks like Homer won’t be home for Christmas after he stays too long at Moe’s Tavern on Christmas Eve and an irate Marge tells him not to return to their house, so he’s left to wander alone around Springfield and lament the effects of Christmas spirits.

Marge gets mad because Homer is drinking, Homer feels bad, Homer finds some way to convince Marge to again blind herself to his functional alcoholism.  One could make a substantial list of episodes that follow this plot structure.  However one could also spend the rest of his Sunday playing video games instead, and just be sated with the fact that they probably haven’t done it with a Christmas episode yet.

Sunday Preview: Covercraft

covercraft-promo-4-113307

 

Homer has a mid-life crisis, takes up bass guitar and forms a cover band with some of the other dads in town. But the band’s modest early success is soon overwhelmed by the breakout potential of their most unlikely star, Apu.

The Red Rocker himself, Sammy Hagar, will guest voice tonight in an episode that I can only speculate to be ‘dad-rrific’.  If you are feeling musically inclined however, I would suggest pulling out your season 5 DVDs and watching “Homer’s Barbershop Quartet” instead.

Sunday Preview: Opposites A-Frack

simpsons

Lisa brings in Assemblywoman Maxine Lombard (guest voice Jane Fonda) to put a stop to Mr. Burns’ fracking operation, but is taken aback when the two political opponents find themselves attracted to one another.

Oh boy, a politically charged episode guest starring Jane Fonda.  Also if the above picture is accurate, then implications of dry, wrinkly sex are sure to be abound.

Sunday Preview: Treehouse of Horror XXV

Treehouse of Horror XXV

On the annual spooktacular Halloween special, Bart and Lisa are transported to a demon-filled alternate universe after Bart reads a set of Aramaic symbols he finds on the underside of his desk; Moe’s “Clockwork Orange”-style gang is disrupted when Dum (Homer) falls for a girl (Marge) who wants him to give up the thug life; and, in an homage to “The Others,” the Simpsons are visited by their former Tracey Ullman-era versions of themselves

Happy almost-Halloween everyone, it’s time for the annual installment of THOH.  This is the 25th such episode, which I guess could be celebrated as some sort of milestone, if one wished to do so.  I’m not going to, but I am a bit of a jerk.
