Sunday Preview: Havana Wild Weekend

When the Retirement Castle and V.A. Hospital can’t help Grampa with his health problems, the Simpsons decide to take a family trip to Cuba so they can get him some cheap medical care.

Perhaps the stars have aligned to allow zombie simpsons fans an opportunity to see this episode before president elect trump reverses any progress we made normalizing relations with Cuba… …but I digress.

Sunday Preview: There Will Be Buds


Homer gets roped into coaching the kids’ lacrosse team with Milhouse’s dad, Kirk, who is in desperate need of a friend. When Kirk gets too clingy, Homer vents about how much of a loser he is. Kirk overhears his rant and disappears, right when the team needs him most: the championship game…

Joe Mantegna shows up tonight as Fat Tony, so I think we have to assume that Homer is a shitty coach but the team does well with Kirk at the helm, Homer places a bet on the championship game and needs Kirk to win it when he has a last second realization that he is not the reason the team has done well. Sorry for the runon sentence, but i am trying to finish the post as fast as possible so that I can go back to pretending that zombie simpsons has been cancelled.

FOX Picks Up Two Year Option for Seasons 29 & 30 (Meh)

marge-vs-the-monorail17

“Can’t you stop it, Dad?” – Bart Simpson
“I’m trying my best!” – Homer Simpson
“The lever you have pulled – Brakes – is not in service. Please make a note of it.” – Monorail Computer Voice

As you may have heard by now, Zombie Simpsons got renewed for two more production runs yesterday. This will bring the total episode count up to a near Satanic 669 and fill out Season 29 and 30(!). The press release and all the articles I saw didn’t mention it, but I believe that this is not a new contract, but rather FOX picking up the two year option it had on the current contract. Negotiations on that one went into overtime and the show production actually went on hiatus, so this is much less dramatic. Last time this happened, I wrote:

– the next time to look for a renewal announcement will be October-ish of 2016

– the next deadline for a renewal announcement will be May-ish of 2017

Didn’t quite nail that, but I was pretty close. So this basically sets the clock forward two more years. The next time to look for a renewal announcement will be October-ish of 2018, and the next deadline will be May-ish of 2019. I’ll see if I can confirm that this is the option rather than a new contract. If I hear back, I’ll update this post.

In the meantime, may I recommend going out and watching Season 4 or something? Forty-four more forgettable episodes is “news”, but it’s not really news, you know?

Update 7 Nov: Someone at FOX confirmed to me (“off the record”, like this is some kind of secret) that this is, in fact the two year option from the last contract. So there were no negotiations this time around.
