Sunday Preview: Lisa The Veterinarian

Lisa_the_Veterinarian_promo_1

After performing CPR on a tased raccoon, Lisa discovers her calling to be veterinarian and becomes an intern at the local office, but learns a tough lesson when her neglected class hamster dies. Meanwhile, Marge moonlights as a crime scene cleaner for a little extra money, and the trauma of the gory scenes make her increasingly dead inside.

Again with the parody of the classic names. In all fairness there are only so many combinations of words,  and this is like episode 589.  Michael York guest voices tonight, although I know nothing about him other than he has guest voiced before, in season 17. I can’t tell you if he was any good because I had stopped watching 5 or 6 YEARS earlier.

      How on earth can she be a human with yellow skin and giant eyes bulging out of her head? Jesus, it’s like it’s a cartoon or something!

    I must be blind if I didn’t notice a ceiling fan after almost 30 damn years.

    And Marge cry-talking makes her sound 90.

    There are a lot of people who think that the show could be good again if the writers were willing to let the kids age and do plotlines designed for teen and young adult characters. But episode plots like this show that it doesn’t really matter, the writers will do these kinds of plots whether or not they write it in a way that makes the age issue work. Shoot, they did a teen pregnancy plot with Bart, after all.

      Aging characters won’t save it. You need to rename them too and bring them all to present time in terms of design and development. Then you can call it “The I-Don’t-Caresons” and keep all those lame jokes and terrible writing. We won’t feel sorry, they already don’t. Booya.

        I maintain that if you took ZS scripts and changed some of the details and marketed it as a new, different show, no one would watch it or defend it.

          No, they’ll still watch it. But won’t feel guilty they do.
          The only remaining defenders of The Simpsons in 2016 are those who receive some benefit from doing so. This show pretty much ruined all of its former reputation as early as 2007, when the number of shit episodes surpassed the number of good ones, and then they just had to release a fucking movie.

    Charlie, how can you pass up the opportunity to do a compare and contrast of the water park segment in this episode and Brush With Greatness? There’s Homer being too big for the slide, Bart trying to cut through the line, the lameness of the kiddy pool. It’s all the same except just really horrible, of course.

    I didn’t see the episode but that Marge plot sounds really disturbing. The notoriously incompetent Springfield PD deals with gory crimes? How do you make jokes about that? How detailed is the animation?

    Oh, and the Hibbert family are psychopaths judging by that promo photo.

      Where’s Dr. Hibbert? I just see the two black kids and the wife who looks like Phylicia Rashad (and who was revealed to be an alcoholic on “Homer vs. The 18th Amendment”).

    Michael York is a British actor who’s been in the game since 1967. If you, Charlie, watched anything other than The Simpsons (both the good episodes and the crappy ones), then you might remember York from such movies and TV shows as “Gilmore Girls”, all three “Austin Powers” movies, “Law and Order: Criminal Intent”, and a bunch of other stuff I found on Wikipedia and Internet Movie Database.

    Is it me or does the Hibbert family look a little off design wise?
