Sunday Preview: “Love Is A Many Strangled Thing”


Dave’s on the road today, but he took the time to improve the promotional image for tonight’s disgrace.  Courtesy of Simpsons Channel, the wretchedly auto-erotic company line:

When Homer inadvertently humiliates Bart in front of a stadium crowd, Marge encourages Homer to enroll in a fathering enrichment class taught by therapist Dr. Zander (guest voice Paul Rudd). Shocked to learn that Homer often strangles Bart for mischievous behavior, Dr. Zander conducts a series of treatments with the help of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (guest-voicing as himself) to teach Homer what it feels like to be young and small.

“But when Bart learns that the therapy sessions have transformed Homer into a pushover, he takes advantage of Homer and becomes a school bully. Hoping therapy could also cure Bart of his bullying habits, Marge enlists Dr. Zander’s help to patch their relationship.”

That is an awful lot of words to convey the same impression made by a single one: crappy.  I suggest we all agree to remember non-basketball Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for his contribution to Airplane!:

    So what you’re telling me is: Dave’s not here, man.

    Horray. Another promotional image that banks on the fact that people are only going to tune in for the fucking guest stars.

    I hope the lack of new Family Guy hurts this episode tonight. I hope it really does. I hope the rantings are an all-time low tonight. I want this disgraceful ass-rape of what used to be a masterpiece to go away.

    I wonder why didn’t Marvin Monroe invite it Arnold Schwarzenegger at the time when he learned how Homer strangles Bart? I suggest writers do themselves a favor and watch at least past season 4 (instead of always watching past season 10 before concluding they came up with a mighty original plotline).

    I also bet there would be a scene in which Bart beats up Nelson. In case there wouldn’t, I’m most sure they thought about it.

    “fathering enrichment class”? ‘Saturdays of Thunder’ anyone?

      To be fair, most of the people making the show now would never have actually seen that episode.
