Sunday Preview: “The Squirt and the Whale”

Happy Sunday, everyone. I’m afraid I have two pieces of bad news. First, there’s new Zombie Simpsons tonight. I know, I know, it hurts. Let’s get the description, courtesy of Simpsons Channel, out of the way:

The Simpson family erect a turbine in their back yard. When Homer realizes that some of the power from the turbine is directed for the local electric company, he removes their house from the grid. Meanwhile, a storm appears and Homer and Lisa try to save a 100-foot long whale, brought to shore by the storm.

Ha, “erect.” Seems to be a fairly obvious attempt to hop on the Earth Day gravy train (is there one?), because wind power is cool and like, everyone loves whales. I won’t even feign interest here; we all know it’s going to be dreadful, so why play coy?

The second piece of bad news is that Photoshop is being a piece of shit, so I can’t bloody up the promo pic per usual practice. Sorry, kind readers. You’ll have to live with an upside down promo pic instead. It’s truly a devastating day for all parties involved.

    Well, the premise doesn’t sound very comic. I’m all for conservation and such, but I don’t find it terribly funny. But then, what else would one expect?

    Episode was trash as usual.

    I think the tool belt “joke” was pointless and unfunny but then again that pretty much sums up Zombie Simpsons, so they were consistent at least.

    The No Homers circle jerk will be ferocious as well this week, simply because the episode was family centric.

    As with the rest of this season, I’m just not going to bother watching it.

    For the record Charlie, that isn’t actually the promo image for this episode, it’s just some generic thing they made years back.

    Oh, damn, I was going to say that, Gran2. Somebody who shall remain nameless (D’ohmer on NoHomers Club) used that as an avatar as he thought it was a promotional image. I had to tell him it was just a picture they had included in The Simpsons 2010 Work Calendar. I didn’t know it was older than a year.
