Sunday Preview: Paths Of Glory

Paths_of_Glory_promo_2

Lisa searches an abandoned asylum and a restaurant that caters to men in an effort to restore the damaged reputation of Springfield’s first female inventor. While at the asylum, Bart steals a notebook belonging to a homicidal patient and passes it off as his when he returns to school. When Homer and Marge find out, they start to believe their son’s a sociopath, and Bart runs with the idea.

Well I don’t think there is much I say that would add to this preview. Feminism, insane asylums, Bart causing mischief; it’s got something for everyone.  I would wager we will get to see Bart spend time in a children’s asylum or something, but that seems like a prime place for a few cameo voices and I didn’t see any guest names when I quickly checked earlier. That means nothing however, and I am not going to spend any more time on it.

    “Lisa searches an abandoned asylum”

    Will that part just be for kicks or will it be tied to some random cause one of the writers read about on Salon? (And by “read about,” I mean “halfheartedly skimmed through before getting distracted by something shiny out the window.”)

    “and a restaurant that caters to men in an effort to restore the damaged reputation of Springfield’s first female inventor.”

    Reminds me of a joke from the commentary for “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy”: “Tune in to watch Lisa complain.”

    Y’know, instead of watching the episode, I think I’ll just read that DHS piece about how Lisa became her own substitute.

    “While at the asylum”

    Milhouse: “Hey, Bart, you want to go play with that X-ray machine in the abandoned hospital?”

    I suspect that one line will be funnier than the entire episode.

    “Bart steals a notebook belonging to a homicidal patient and passes it off as his when he returns to school. When Homer and Marge find out, they start to believe their son’s a sociopath, and Bart runs with the idea.”

    So, he’ll run with the idea that people think he’s a sociopath? Sounds like he actually is a sociopath. Oh well, I (don’t) look forward to seeing Bart perform various activities and having Homer and/or Marge describe in detail what he just did.

    Remember Lisa the Iconoclast? That was a great episode.

      To me, it was one of those episodes that wasn’t all that great at first (I liked the subplot of Homer auditioning for town crier and Skinner mentioning that Kearney is the only Springfield Elementary student old enough to remember the 1970s Bicentennial and Watergate, which started the whole running gag of Kearney actually being an adult, despite looking like a teenager and going to elementary school), but when I grew up, I actually found it funny, even if I hated the way Marge treated Lisa.

    Reading this ep’s description reminded me of only one line: “They changed the ‘it'”. The whole synopsis feels weird, even by today standards, although a poptard such as myself might of course be mistaken on another (ripoff) BRILLIANT parody of Whatever You Usually Watch they’re doing tonight.

    I don’t think it matters whether this week’s episode is an abortion or not. Where I live, they pre-empted it with The President talking about the shootings/terrorist attack in San Bernadino.
