Sunday Preview “Treehouse of Horror XXVII”

In this annual Halloween-themed episode, Mr. Burns holds a Hunger Games-style contest in which the children of Springfield battle each other. Also, Lisa’s imaginary friend becomes jealous of her real friends, and Moe tells Bart that the bar patrons are really covert agents.

When I was a kid, THOH was a close to Halloween as possible. This 2 week out crap is a crock. Why even do it? No one would notice if you stopped kicking the corpse of what was (albeit 20 years ago) a holiday institution for people my age. Also it sounds like it is going to suck anyway. Probably. I didn’t actually read the episode description that I cut and pasted above.


Sunday Preview “The Town”

Homer plans a family “hate-cation” trip to Boston in an attempt to show Bart that Boston is a terrible city.

I guess Homer catches Bart rooting for a football team that is not Homer’s favorite, so it is time to crap all over Boston the way only zombie Homer can. Maybe this time they will spring for the bus with bathrooms, unlike the time Homer hated on a major US city 19 YEARS ago. But I digresss.


Sunday Preview: Fland Canyon


Homer recalls a tense family vacation to the Grand Canyon with the Flanders family

It appears FOX is now putting as much effort into writing their episode descriptions as I have been at previewing them. There are 14 words in that description. I guess it will be a flashback episode? I equally don’t know or care. I have heard some buzz that there will be a Disney animation styled couch gag, so i guess that’s tonights draw. After tonight there are only 3 more episodes until summertime, so we got that going for us.



Sunday Preview: How Lisa Got Her Marge Back


After a mother-daughter spat, Marge takes Lisa to Capital City, where, after enjoying a musical, the show’s star sings Marge’s praises to remind Lisa how lucky she is to have such a special mom. Meanwhile, Bart is bummed that everyone expects him to be the ultimate prankster, so he recruits Maggie to help him trick people.

Andrew Rannells will voice himself tonight, so he must be show’s star that sings Marge’s praises. This won’t come close to being as funny as “The Book of Morman”, but I am going to give him a pass. Only because I almost pissed my pants at that show however.


Sunday Preview: The Burns Cage


Smithers is upset with Mr. Burns’ lack of affection towards him, so Homer plays matchmaker and tries to find him a boyfriend. Meanwhile, Bart maneuvers the removal of the lead in the school production of “Casablanca,” leaving Milhouse as a subpar understudy, which frustrates his costar, Lisa.

Happy Sunday all. Tonight’s episode should prove for ‘great’ Homer hijinks, as he will try to get Smithers hooked up.   In the B Plot we will probably get to see Milhouse cry more than once. I am pretty sure they have already used the character in the above promo pic for a gay guy voiced by Hank Azaria, who I would guess is going to voice him again tonight.  Unless of course the character of ‘Julio’ is being voiced by tonight’s guest: George Takei. I wouldn’t put it past anyone on the staff, but I guess we’ll see.


Sunday Preview: The Marge-ian Chronicles


Not feeling unique, Lisa signs up for the Mars One Space Colony – to Marge’s dismay. Then, Marge hires Bart to go through the tryout process with Lisa to make her want to quit.

Lisa doesn’t feel unique so she goes on a suicide mission. It’s a story as old as time. Marge doesn’t want her to go so she ‘hires’ a family member to stop it. Another age-old tale.

That’s it, I cannot work under these conditions. If anyone wants me I will be downstairs at McDougal’s.  …Call the weekend guy, I don’t care.





Sunday Preview: Lisa The Veterinarian


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.
