Sunday Preview: The Scorpion’s Tale

Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy10

“I’ve discovered that the rejuvenating effect people feel is actually a mild form of poisoning, no doubt a result of the unsanitary conditions in Grampa Simpson’s bathtub.  Nonetheless . . .” – Dr. Hibbert

The Oscars aren’t good for much, but they did buy us a week off from Zombie Simpsons.  Sadly, that week is now over.  I didn’t see a promo image at Simpsons Channel, so we’ll have to let the text do the talking:

After a field trip to the desert, Lisa discovers that the desert water mysteriously makes typically combative creatures get along, so she brings some of the water home as a souvenir.
When Grampa moves in with the family after getting kicked out of the retirement home, Homer secretly tests the desert water on Grampa, who is instantly cured of his crankiness.

A pharmaceutical representative (guest voice Herzog) gets word of Homer’s discovery and quickly tries to replicate the water into a drug, using Grampa as the primary guinea pig.
But when the pills get in the wrong hands and are sold on the black market, unexpected side effects of the new drug take an eye-popping toll on the elderly citizens of Springfield, and the Simpsons learn that their new medical cure comes with major consequences.

I enjoyed Serenity, this is less promising.

    This was pretty much disappointing here. Nothing that was done better before. Tried to be like “Grampa vs Sexual Inadequacy” & “D’oh-in’ In The Wind,” but with less wit and more gross eye-popping.

    Forget the eyes falling out–whomever made this episode had their brains fall out.

    I only watched the first couple of minutes but why were Skinner, Chalmers and bits and pieces of Hoover’s and Krabapple’s class on a field trip together? I love how no one has any care at all about how things are supposed to logically work as long as Skinner, Chalmers and Ralph Wiggum can be a scene together.
