Sunday Preview: “Rednecks and Broomsticks”

Another Sunday is upon us, which of course means there’s a new episode of Zombie Simpsons waiting in the wings to ruin our evening. There’s no promo picture for me to bloody up, but there is a description (courtesy of Simpsons Channel) that we can all point and laugh at:

Just as Lisa is about to become involved with a group of practicing Wiccans, they get arrested for witchcraft and Lisa becomes the star witness in their trial.

Right, because we’re all looking forward to what sounds like a 22-minute ToH segment gone bad. I’m also quite certain that making fun of Wiccans stopped being relevant or enjoyable years ago. Androgynous teenage vampires are the new Wiccans, idiots. But wait, there’s more! Here’s the B-plot from SNPP:

Homer becomes friends with Cletus when he discovers Cletus and his friends make their own moonshine.

Why do Homer and Cletus need to be friends? Their relationship is best summed up in “Home Sweet Home-Diddily-Dum-Doodily” and anything further is both a flagrant lie and superfluous. But this is Zombie Simpsons, so I should stop asking questions and just accept that our favorite characters are now soulless proxies for a peculiar brand of un-humor.

By the way, now would be a good time to start drinking yourselves into lucidity in advance of tonight’s clusterfuck. Whiskey counts as beer if it’s a boilermaker.

    Silly Dave, whisky *always* counts as beer.

    Cletus: I love you pa!

    The main story sounds like it could be hideously embarrassing. Oh yes, the townsfolk are superstitious and ignorant, but Lisa will be the voice of reason. When did they last have a plot like that? Was it the evolution/creation one, or is there one more recent? Anyway, I find it a little frustrating to have all the people in town kowtow to some clearly stupid belief, except for Lisa, who is the self-insert of the writers as they say “Look at this, you can identify with Lisa because you know that everyone in the world but you is a complete moron!”. Anyway, I expect references to The Craft because Neve Campbell was in that, and that’s about teenage witches and it’s only thirteen years old!

    Also, I fear Cletus is becoming a little overused, but that could go for so many characters they like now. Everyone else seems to like him and his nebulous family, so what do I know?

    I have no idea what to make of this episode; honestly, no idea. It just sounds so bizarre – like you said, a 22-minute THOH gone bad.
