    I love this episode yet it’s always bugged me–being the pedant that I am–that they made blowfish poisoning into one of those “Ali MacGraw Disease” things where there aren’t any symptoms at all. Tetrodotoxin poisoning is actually quite nasty, with progressive paralysis (a bit like botulism in that regard), and not the sort of disease where you can walk around for a bit and then suddenly you drop dead.

    Well, it is fiction, TV fiction at that, so you do what you have to do in order to make the cliche work.

    Y’know, on more than a few occasions, when DHS has posted screencaps from Classic Simpsons episodes, I’ve posted comments along the lines of, “Look at the characters’ design, you wouldn’t see that kind of detail in the sterile animation of Zombie Simpsons…” Have I made too many of those posts already? Maybe. But that won’t stop me from saying, goddamn, look at the expression and the saggy facial features of the sleazy chef in that picture. There’s a countenance you’d never see in Zombie Simpsons. Homer’s expression of terror is more animated than anything he’d do these days too.
