Scrounging for Praise

“This is your great uncle Chet. Go ahead, Chet, tell her what you do.” – Homer Simpson
“I run an unsuccessful shrimp company.” – Chet Simpson
“Oh. But you run it, right?” – Homer Simpson
“Oh yeah.” – Chet Simpson

I’m aware that there was a new Zombie Simpsons this week, but I’m out here in the desert helping a friend put a roof on his (second!) kickass, off-the-grid solar house. That’s it in the above picture, and as you can probably guess by the remoteness, internet access here is spotty at best. So I’m probably not gonna get to “Caper Chase”.

Despite my relative isolation, I did catch this tweet from Al Jean the other day:

As you can see from the above, the linked article contains quite a few sign gags, which I’ve long said are about the only thing the show still manages to sometimes do somewhat well. But what really caught my attention was the introduction:

The Simpsons is the longest-running sitcom of all-time – now at 27 seasons (and counting). And, as most “classic Simpsons” fans will attest, the show lost its footing around season 10 and 11 and never recovered, turning into a pale imitation of itself.

They go on to say that Zombie Simpsons is “pretty hilarious”, which I obviously think is a massive overstatement. But I can’t help but find it funny that Jean is willing to twitter brag about an article whose very premise is that Zombie Simpsons isn’t nearly as good as The Simpsons.

Ultimately, this is obviously very minor, but I enjoy the way that the bar has been so lowered for Zombie Simpsons that “pale imitation” is now considered a kosher description by the people who put out the show.
