Sunday Preview: Mathlete’s Feat

Mathlete's_Feat_promo_2

When a modernized Springfield Elementary has a technical meltdown, Lisa transforms it into a Waldorf school. Meanwhile, Groundskeeper Willie becomes the coach of the mathletes

Season Finale! For this year’s death rattle, Lisa has apparently been given the ability to force families to send their formally publicly educated children to a school that won’t grade anyone.  All this makes me think about is that Otto almost had tenure at Brown.  Also Willie is now a modern day Archimedes, so you know, whatever.  Frankly the only interesting thing that is related to this episode is that i don’t have to watch any previews for a few months.  Have a great summer.

Sunday Preview: Bull-E

20150505201242!Bull-E_promo_5

After Bart gets bullied at the school dance, Marge convinces the town to pass anti-bullying legislation. Homer then gets arrested and sent to rehab for bullying Ned Flanders, only to subsequently leave rehab as a hero.

Albert Brooks is guest voicing tonight, so those of you who choose to watch have that going for you. I especialy won’t be watching now, as I feel whenever he voices a character anymore it just makes the episode even worse by comparison.  It’s like using Godiva chocolate syrup on a dog shit sundae. Rest assured, I believe there is only one more episode before summer vacation.

Sunday Preview: Let’s Go Fly A Coot

Grampa’s days in the Air Force are rehashed, while Bart picks up the smoking habit in an effort to impress Milhouse’s Dutch cousin, Annika.

Do you think airing what will probably be an anti-smoking PSA counts as community service for Murdoch? Carice  van Houten (The Red Woman for all you Game of Thrones fans) is voicing the role of Annika tonight, so I guess that is about as convenient as it gets.  Well I guess I don’t know how convenient it is for anyone, but it’s definitely the reason the episode was written. I can see it now…. “Hey an actress from that extremely popular HBO show’s agent called and said she wants in, and guess what her name is!!! This thing will write itself!”

Sunday Preview: The Kids Are All Fight

The_Kids_Are_All_Fight_Promo_3

The family takes a trip down memory lane to see the origins of how Bart and Lisa first started fighting with each other.

Flashback episode eh?  I watched the promos for this episode earlier, and as per usual, I was less than unimpressed.

In one of the promos Homer seems to hire Grandma Flanders as a babysitter, and she is remarkably more with it than when we were first graced with her presence during “Lisa’s First Word”.   I am now going to go watch that episode to wash the promos out of my eyes.

Sunday Preview: Peeping Mom

Peeping_Mom_promo_1

Bart’s tall tale about not being involved in a bulldozer accident is a doozy, but a skeptical Marge decides to dog him all over the place until he ‘fesses up. Meanwhile, Flanders gets a new dog which leads Homer to overlook Santa’s Little Helper.

I wonder if there will be as many horns as the One Bad Episode from season 7.  Who am I kidding, of course there will be.  Also, I am offering even odds on Flanders’ new dog being named “Laddy”.

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.
