Summer Programming Note

Krusty Gets Busted2

“In the coming weeks, you will notice some rather sweeping changes in our program.  Please do not be alarmed.  Itchy and Scratchy will still have a home here, but we will also learn about nutrition, self esteem, etiquette and all the lively arts.” – Sideshow Bob

We’re free – free! – from new Zombie Simpsons for at least four months.  Woo-hoo!  Of course, that also means we’ll need to find something new to chew on around here.  Fortunately, there’s Season 9.  Last summer we had one of our little on-line chats about most of the episodes from Season 8.  We were trying to focus on those episodes when it was clear the show was slipping.  Sadly, those problems became more and more frequent in Season 9.  In order to keep our wits rusty and dull over the summer, we’re going to spend those sunny days slowly picking apart the good and the bad of Season 9.

Like last summer, we’ll be doing two episodes per week, going up in some combination of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Reading Digest will still have a home here on Fridays, but other than that you can expect more random stuff, including fan made items, crappy merchandise, and other Simpsons related material.  Of course, we’ll also keep our ear to the ground for any news about the renewal of Zombie Simpsons for Season 23.

Obviously, Reading Digest and a couple of Crazy Noises isn’t much in terms of regularly scheduled posts.  So I want to ask all of you other Simpsons fans out there if there’s anything else you’d like to see us do.  We’re open to ideas, and I know we have a lot of funny and creative readers, so let us know.

Along those lines, if anyone has a guest post or rant they’d like to see on the front page, e-mail us.  This can be a joke or an episode you particularly hated or loved, real life moments that reminded you of the show, really anything Simpsons related is fine.  Feel free to include images, if you want to use video, it’s best if it’s YouTube since that’s easier for us to embed.  We make no promises about publication, but all serious submissions will be generously reviewed with an eye towards filling a few holes in our programming lineup:

Thanks for reading, and hopefully we’ll be seeing a lot of you over the summer.

    I suggested it before but I’d love to see an article or two on animation.
    They switched to digital ink some time around season 13/14 but even before that, standards dropped and the characters became more rigid and awkward.
    Ignoring the animation and rather just looking at the art style, it went through a period of neon colours and now we have the clean crisp lines with wacky angles in lieu of decent composition. I’m sure you could squeeze an article out of those.

    I’m looking forward to the retrospective look at season 9.
    I think that’s where the classic seasons ended, if they even made it that far. I’ll have to dig around for the season 8 one.
