Behind Us Forever: I Won’t Be Home For Christmas

Marge Be Not Proud10

“Hey, I thought Krusty was Jewish.” – Lisa Simpson
“Christmas is a time when people of all religions come together to worship Jesus Christ.” – Bart Simpson

According to IMDb, this is the first whole episode Al Jean’s written in a long time.  Sadly, it didn’t seem to matter.  Homer goes on one zany little escapade after another, there’s plenty of expository nonsense, several musical montages that seem designed to do nothing more than eat clock (efforts at which fell so short that they added a preview of the next episode to help fill all twenty of their contractually obligated minutes), and the usual Zombie Simpsons problems.

– It’s probably longer than it needs to be, but this Christmas themed opening is actually a nice change of pace.  There’s even some freeze frame fun (all the Jewish characters are eating at the Chinese restaurant).

– The Peanuts reference to open the episode at least didn’t take long.  It didn’t have anything to do with anything else, but it was short.

– The Comic Book Guy thing with the Star Wars Holiday Special, however, did take too long and didn’t have anything to do with anything else.

– Bizarre kookiness starts early here, with Marge telling Bart to hold the ladder she’s using to trim the tree only to look down and see Maggie!  She falls, then laments out loud that Homer isn’t there.  Why did she think Bart was there?  C’mon, that was like four seconds ago, who can possibly remember that far into the past?

– Burns shows up for no reason to talk to Homer.  Then Smithers appears out of nowhere.

– The clip from Miracle on 34th Street is weirdly out of place.

– Homer’s at Moe’s because Moe made him crash his car (don’t ask), then is going to leave before Moe begs and screams at him to take pity on him and stay.  The obvious repetition is what’s supposed to make this funny, I guess, but that’s all it is: hey, Moe screaming and crying is funny, let’s keep at it!  That this is just the usual “Moe the Sad Sack” stuff makes it lamer still.

– Now Moe is telling us that he’s wrapped around Homer’s leg, and now he’s up on Homer’s shoulders.  Oof, this just keeps going.

– Moe was briefly happy, so he stabbed himself in the head with a corkscrew.

– Now Marge is telling us what’s happening, “One night, the one night of the year I want Homer home with his family, and he can’t even do that.”

– Then Marge tells us what she’s about to say.  Did anyone edit this?

– Homer’s driving around now, finds Moe’s closed, then goes to the Kwik-E-Mart where he spends the better part of a minute buying lottery tickets.

– This is what passes for a setup these days, “Aw, thanks for your honesty, Apu.  Is there any other product in the store you’d like to warn me about?”.  Such natural dialogue!

– Bart can’t get to sleep, so Lisa conveniently walks in to help put him to sleep by telling him the story of jazz.  But Lisa wants to talk to Bart, so her doing that for him directly contradicts what she came in there for and then does.  But it did eat ten seconds or so.

– Huh?:

Lisa: Bart this is the year I’ve got to nail Christmas.  I don’t want to be a jaded ten-year-old like you.

That leads to a flashback involving Homer getting electrocuted.  More importantly, what the hell is Lisa talking about?  That doesn’t sound like her or him.

– Bart then recaps the flashback, in case anyone missed it.

– More filler: this time, they play “Carol of the Bells” for ten seconds while Marge strings popcorn. Then they cut to Maggie eating it.

– Bart has a pipe, everyone’s awake late at night, and Moe just came down through the chimney for no reason whatsoever.

– After some desultory exposition about why Moe wouldn’t have knocked, Moe tells us that he’s the reason Homer was late.

– Marge then continues on the expository filler theme, “This is what I was hoping for, for it not to have been completely his fault.”

– Moe then kisses Marge because there’s mistletoe.  She calls Homer, who is now getting his car towed for some reason.

– Homer’s now wandering around the outdoor mall as more music plays.

– Homer then gets to a movie theater.  Sign gags being one of the few things they can still sometimes do, it’s “The Screens at the Shops At Towne Centre At Springfielde Glenne”.  That’s pretty good.

– Then we get into Homer setting up the sarcastic guy to tell him about all the depressing Christmas movies.

– Homer goes into the movie, where Gil, Kirk and some other people are there being alone on Christmas.  Homer then leaves.  So . . . that was pointless.

– Homer and Flanders then talk and bond, or something.

– Homer bought something from Flanders left handed kiosk, which lead to this:

Flanders: But why?
Homer: Because Jerkass Homer has become Assjerk Homer.

I don’t even know what that’s supposed to mean.

– Now they’re hugging.  Then Homer runs away.  Even by Zombie Simpsons standards this is disjointed.

– Marge and the kids then went to the retirement home.  All the old people pop out to talk to them and it’s supposed to be after midnight by now, but we did get the Old Jewish Man saying “Make them turn the TV to CBS”, which is decent.

– Homer is woken up by a Nutcracker guy who turns out to be a mall employee who invites Homer to some bizarre mall party.

– Yet more piano music as Marge and the kids walk through a neon sign store that was supposed to be a montage.  It’s like two kinds of clock eating filler at once!

– Apparently they’re at the mall now, too.  I guess they ditched the old people?

– A giant gingerbread house just partially collapsed on Homer.  Carry on.

– Marge then appears, with a bow on her head, and says she’s Homer’s present tonight.  I, uh, whatever.

– And we (sort of) end on Homer making that beep-beep noise cars make when you lock them.

– We then get yet another musical moment of Maggie making a paper cutout and putting it on the tree.

– And then, because those twenty minutes won’t fill themselves, God and Jesus have a short argument.

– And then (x2), because this thing still isn’t long enough, there’s some kind of preview for next week’s episode that’s mostly a bunch of alien babies being born.

Anyway, the numbers are in and while they’re up from a non-football Sunday, they’re down from previous football Sundays.  Last night just 6.41 million viewers wondered when the last time the show had a decent Christmas episode was.  That’s down slightly from the last two episodes that had NFL lead ins, and may be the last football lead in of the year depending on how the playoffs get scheduled for TV.

    I think something is bringing those ratings numbers up. Something undoubtedly does. Could that be Tapped Out? You can’t have swings from 2 million to 6 million out of a sudden, unless people play this shit and it’s very well advertized.

    They really have a hard time making a cohesive story that lasts 20 minutes these days. Very Family Guy-ish with just a ton of time-eating vignettes that have nothing to do with anything. Remember the old South Park episode which depicted an animated show being assembled randomly by manatees? That’s this episode all over.

    This one also has the grandaddy of the “idiot plot device” in which Marge is all of a sudden so mad at Homer she doesn’t even let him speak the only line of dialog that would have ended the episode 15 minutes early. A terrible plot contrivance all-around. Makes “Miracle on Evergreen Terrace” look like a world-renowned Christmas classic.

    Also, the same episode in which Marge flips out at Homer, she allows Moe to kiss her on the lips twice with hardly more than a raised eyebrow. Wow.

        No kidding. At any rate it’s a bit ironic that this episode in particular is more disjointed and lazier than most Family Guy episodes. It’s like they had a plot idea that took only 5 minutes to tell and tacked on whatever padding they could think of over a lunch break to fill it out.

        • 8 Elle Denton
          8 December 2014 at 9:10 pm

          That’s probably what they did. Just take some comfort in the fact that FOX isn’t airing any more episodes of “The Simpsons” until January 2015 (the first new episode is going to be that episode that was supposed to air two years ago where The Simpsons go to space on a crappy rocket ride at a theme park. If you think this episode was bad, buckle up).

          This episode did look like it was following the Family guy formula. But they forgot that for it to work the jokes have to be funny. This will be a completely forgettable episode (I was gonna say by next Christmas, but I’m not sure I will really remember anything beside that it wasn’t really good by New Year Day).

      When I quit watching the show for good in the mid-2000s, I noticed they had 40 producers credited to an episode. I believe this is a huge part of the problem: in both concept and execution, these scripts feel like they’re being put together by committee. They have no soul, no feeling, no real relevancy to anything going on in the world today, which takes a lot more than just a few references to current events, no respect for the characters’ established patterns of behavior, no respect for the audience’s intelligence—the very thing that made 20th century SIMPSONS so damn good.

      I have genuinely liked maybe at most five post-2000 episodes. Five. And they just keep cranking them out. Nobody thinks it’s funny anymore, there are more bad episodes than good ones, and at this point, continuing to watch this show does not make you a viewer, but an enabler. If you continue watching The Simpsons out of habit, you are enabling the existence of Toxic Simpsons, which is what Dark called it here: http://deadhomersociety.com/zombiesimpsons/zs17/#comment-41154. I happen to agree: the show is way past the point of zombification and has reached the point of putrefaction. How much worse do they have to get before people start retroactively disliking Good Simpsons?

        Well, the next episode has the family going to Kang and Kodos’ home planet again while on a day out at a theme park, one where Elon Musk tries to kill Mr. Burns, and the show has been renewed for a 27th season, so, to answer your question, “It’s coming, so I’d start using the DVDs of the good episodes as clay pigeons, coasters, or just break ’em apart and use them to slash your wrists while you watch the crappy new episodes.”

  3. 8 December 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Marge be not proud is one of my least favorite simpsons episodes and yet I enjoyed it more than this. It was so lazy and boring to watch full of non sequiturs. And I wonder at what moment did Moe became so pathetic?

      What? It’s totally customary for some local bartender who has a crush on your significant other to go down your chimney Santa style in order to explain himself. About something he never did.

  5. 9 December 2014 at 12:46 am

    Al Jean, even in the days when he worked with Mike Reiss, has always had the same approach to storytelling – think up a rudimentary plot, then pile on millions of jokes until it fills a half hour. It started to become really obvious in Season 4, when you’d have like three or four extraneous jokes surrounding a single plot point, and main stories sometimes wouldn’t even kick in until the top of act two. Padding is everywhere in those episodes, from musical numbers to extra long couch gags to scenes hastily cobbled from recycled animation to “The Adventures of Ned Flanders”. Al Jean just seems to have a chronic inability to produce an episode that’s longer than 17 minutes.

    At least back then, the padding was funny. But once you’re aware of it, you can’t not notice just how thin those episodes really are.

    • 16 Robert P
      9 December 2014 at 5:45 am

      They were, but the important thing is that the older episodes knew how to organize the padding so it didn’t really distract itself. Comedy hardly needs to have particularly focused plots just as long as it’s entertaining. Non-sequiturs also are welcome breaks in the usual flow so long as they are worth the detour. Even a poorly structured episode can be a classic so long as the flow of the comedy maintains its momentum.

      Though what really brings this down is how serious the episode takes itself while almost proud of how little it cares to make that work either comedically, emotionally or even structurally. It actually had one amusing vignettes (Homer stranded the night after Christmas) but that was IT. If the episode was a complete pisstake of a Christmas special this would be far more forgiving, but it is determined to be structured as semicomedic-melodrama that’s unsure of whether it’s an entirely unreal cartoon or a heartfelt family sitcom.

      Even real basic logical flaws pass because no one bothered to proofread it, or perhaps didn’t to second guess the veteran exec producer’s brainchild.

      -Moe steals Homer’s wallet early on (specific focus on the wallet) an never returns it/Homer never notices even when making multiple purchases. The close-up of Homer’s wallet also shows he keeps his money there. The wallet was evidently suppose to be the reason Moe shows up, but it was completely forgotten.
      -Moe feels bad enough to go through the Simpsons’ chimney to solve a problem he shouldn’t know anything about, but doesn’t care enough to help look for him? Also is shown minutes earlier not giving a shit about Homer while singing karaoke and apparently robbing him.
      Marge complains that Homer isn’t there, yet the very next scene establishes he’s still finishing a regular shift at the power plant. Shouldn’t she already know this?
      -Mall employee states that the partygoers are “dressed like food” yet no one there is (‘cept Halloween Pumpkin head)?.
      -Maggie is holding Marge’s ladder, but when she falls doesn’t even acknowledge that Maggie might have crushed hurt during the fall (Maggie just disappears)
      -Marge goes through the trouble of making a gingerbread Sideshow Bob to be placed alongside the gingerbread family….why?
      -Homer calls Marge at Moe’s using his cell phone. The line is “busy” even though it was just established that she’s sitting home in the dark listening to Christmas tunes on TV.
      -Since Homer was shown having a cell phone and Marge didn’t know where he was, wouldn’t Marge at least once call his cell number to find out what’s holding him up?
      -There is a big set-up with Lisa worrying about having a perfect Christmas and Bart is persuaded to help and then…..that’s it. Lisa asks “Where’s Dad”? and Bart just stands there smoking a pipe.
      -The kids make a big fuss about Homer not being there for Christmas, yet once the highly awaited moment comes they don’t even care if they’re awake.
      -It’s 12:15 when Lisa goes to Bart’s room and the next establishing shot reveals its practically dawn. Where did that time go? Did Moe wait that long to go through the chimney? Did the kids just wait 4 or so hours before telling Marge that they miss Homer?
      -Sooo are Patti and Selma just visiting or spending the night? They apparently “helped assemble all the toys” (which makes no sense) and were never shown leaving the house and saw Marge tell off Homer. They conveniently disappear even though they should have come out to celebrate by popping a cork of champagne and convincing her to forget the fat-man. Also, their Asian daughter is conveniently MIA.
      -During the final shot, we have both Abe and Milhouse watching with Kirk. Abe was apparently allowed to leave the retirement castle even though he was never shown with the family beforehand after leaving said retirement castle, and Kirk was already established as being alone on Christmas watching a holocaust movie.

      Lastly, the show never ever was reduced to including a “coming soon” trailer for the next episode. A trailer, might I add, that had absolutely no effort put into it and not a shred of self-awareness.

      Speaking of “The Man Who Came to Be Dinner”…. man oh man that looks awful. Singing dishrag episode awful. E tu, Mirkin? Another classic Simpsons veteran’s reputation diminished through ZS’s ever-corrupting taint.

    • 9 December 2014 at 9:32 am

      I think good characterization was another element that helped pull off the episodes during the Jean-Reiss era. The wafer-thin archetypes and stereotypes found in Zombie Simpsons play a part in how the “jokes” and dialgoue come across as forced and contrived.

      I knew it! Listen to any of the commentaries from seasons four and five, and most of them will be about how the writers had trouble stretching out the episodes, which is why “Kamp Krusty” and “Cape Feare” were rejected as “Simpsons” feature-length movies.

      • 10 December 2014 at 10:18 pm

        Funny thing is, Al Jean has so much trouble filling 22 minutes, but Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein constantly had trouble keeping it under 22 minutes – they put so much content into their episodes that they often ran as long as 28 minutes, all of it vital story material. That’s why so few Season 7 and 8 episodes have subplots, because the A stories are so meaty that there’s just no time for a B story. And I always say that a lot of those episodes do feel like full-length movies, because there’s just so much packed into each one.

      This season, I have been noticing that the fabric of the show’s “reality” is continuing to unravel. Along the K&K Christmas cookies, this season seems to have more Kang & Kodos than any previous season. It’s getting to the point where they are going to be show regulars and live as neighbors across the street.

      • 22 torbiecat
        9 December 2014 at 9:42 am

        From what I recall reading here and there, the writers of the single-digit seasons actually wanted Kodos and Kang to be part of the ordinary Simpsons universe, but were unable to think of ways of including them so that they didn’t seem forced or out-of-place. In general, I’ve gotten the impression that Zombie Simpsons has been implementing ideas and themes that had been thrown out in the past. It almost seems as if the current writers don’t want to admit that certain ideas are just best left out to pasture rather than being re-visited.

        • 9 December 2014 at 2:19 pm

          You’re on to something there. Listening to the DVD commentaries reveals tons of stuff that got cut from classic era scripts for not being funny enough that wound up in Zombie Simpsons anyway. The “Susie had a steamboat” gag from Fat Man and Little Boy, the Tales from the Crypt opening from Treehouse of Horror XVII, the entire premise of Homer Scissorhands… it’s appalling. It basically says “Well, it wasn’t funny ten years ago, but we can’t think of anything else and we need to fill time, so in it goes.”

          I wonder sometimes if the writers ever stop and try to remember why they’re still doing this.

            Yikes. Not even “Saturday Night Live” would do that (or they would, but they’d at least make it so naive viewers wouldn’t know the difference), and that show’s been on longer than “The Simpsons” with more vocal detractors claiming that it’s not as good as it used to be.

    They could of slightly saved this with a touching ending, maybe Marge and the kids after not finding Homer decide to spend time at the retirement home to bring happiness to others.

    Moe somehow finds Homer wandering around, they talk a bit about how Homer made Moe’s Christmas by keeping him company and they should pass that feeling on to someone who needs that. Homer thinks that his dad has always been there for him so they decide to visit Grandpa.

    Homer and Moe show up at the retirement home, Moe explains to Marge that everything was his fault, Marge forgives him since she was doing the same thing for Grandpa and the other old folks. Episode ends with everyone having a great Christmas Eve/Early Christmas at the retirement home.

    Wow. Just wow. The only time I found myself crack a smile the whole episode was at the beginning where Ralph is ice skating with roller skates; kind of surprised they didn’t spell that joke out for the viewers! I literally shook my head in bewilderment when Homer got his car towed from in front of the church with no explanation just to fill the plot hole of Marge not being able to call him on his cell phone (was towed away inside the car, LOLZ!). That mall Christmas party was just weird and kind of creepy, not a feeling I’ve ever associated with The Simpsons, and that Halloween joke with the pumpkin guy was just awful- “Halloween merchandise goes on sale Dec. 26th, man” umm ok. This episode was just sloppy random Christmas themed bullcrap with an unfelt Marge ‘marriage is still strong despite zany Homer hijinks’ resolution. I cringed when she said his reasons for doing things could be good or “crazy.. pretty entertaining”. Listening to that honestly felt like if you had a romantic partner you’ve been with for years but now when they say they love you, you can tell they’re just going through the motions to get what they want/keep the comfortable status-quo; your heart knows something just isn’t right!

    A few more frivolous complaints, because why not, it’s Christmas.

    ~Is anyone else sick of these themed theme songs? Can we expect a New Year sequence come January?
    ~I notice Family Guy has been more liberal with it’s use of live action clips and The Simpsons dutifully plays catchup.
    ~I still refuse to accept a world where The Simpsons have smartphones.
    ~ The Simpsons have never been strong on Christmas specials but I’ll take anything up to and including ‘She of Little Faith’ over this patchwork of tangents.

    • 30 Robert P
      9 December 2014 at 5:49 am

      Speaking of that smartphone, its mere existence makes a complete joke or the “seriousness” of Homer’s absence. The family never once tried to call that phone? Even if the call accomplished nothing (i.e. lost with the car, dead battery), it would get that 10 ton elephant out of the room.

    “Because Jerkass Homer has become Assjerk Homer”

    Was this a real quote taken from the episode? if so, then… fuck you, Jean. Next, they’re going to have someone say “Because The Simpsons has become Zombie Simpsons”. That’s like the shittiest way to make fun of oneself not even trying.

    • 32 Robert P
      9 December 2014 at 11:56 am

      Assjerk Homer is terrible. Should have gone with “Niceass Homer” if they had to go down that road. In addition Homer was pretty mellow throughout aside from the weird Flanders-related homophobia….which I guess is suppose to be a running joke now.

      • 33 Stan
        9 December 2014 at 5:46 pm

        I’m just not picturing the character (I don’t watch this shit anymore). Homer was already full jerkass in the latest seasons, why did they have to make up a name for someone Homer initially used to be?

        • 34 Robert P
          9 December 2014 at 6:05 pm

          Just referring to this episode since ZS Homer is whatever each episode decides his current character traits are. He was pretty jerkass in Covercraft, but rather sedate and friendly in this one.

    • 9 December 2014 at 6:48 pm

      The writers have used the phrase “Jerkass Homer” before, in Mommie Beerest way back in Season 16, when Homer tries to play dumb to get out of watching the kids. “How many cigars are they allowed to have? Bart sleeps in the microwave, right? How many magic beans should I sell the baby for? Duh, that’s me, Jerkass Homer!”

      And they didn’t even use the term right. Homer’s jerkassiness isn’t defined by how stupid he is, it’s defined by how much of a selfish obnoxious asshole he is to everybody else. The writers are apparently a-okay with that.

      • 37 Robert P
        9 December 2014 at 10:33 pm

        There was also an earlier one in which he takes out “Jerkass Homer” brand cigars and blows up a gas station. I forget which one that was. It was another weird one because he was more stupid that an ass in that one.

        • 38 Elle Denton
          10 December 2014 at 3:51 pm

          That was from season 19’s “E. Pluribus Wiggum” and probably the only part I found funny. And, in that case, it was also a pun on “Jackass brand Cigars” from Hawaii (Jackass, in this case, referring to what people used to call a donkey or a mule).

          • 39 Stan
            11 December 2014 at 11:56 am

            I thought “jackass” and “jerkass” have two different meaning (and I’m not talking about the literal sense of the first one). Like, a jerkass for me would be someone trying to be a jackass but also being a jerk at the same time, i.e. a rude showoff. However the prob here is that Homer isn’t even a jerkass in the latest seasons, he’s only acting like one out of convenience, then he’s something else. ZS has erased all of their personalities and replaced them with FG cutouts, and also very lame ones.

  11. 9 December 2014 at 4:36 pm

    The Simpsons used Nick Offerman as a Sea Captain/Family Counselor while this week’s Bob’s Burgers used Nick Offerman as the owner of a gay bar. Do I need to point out who used Ron Swanson better?

    Also I love how Bob’s Burgers uses SNL alumni Bill Hader for multiple roles ala Phil Hartman. I wonder if Bill also helps with punching up the scripts like the late and great Phil Hartman.

    • 41 Elle Denton
      10 December 2014 at 3:52 pm

      I know Bill Hader punches up scripts for South Park with Trey Parker and Matt Stone (and occasionally does voicework on South Park, like when he played Alec Baldwin in “Let Go and Let Gov”) but I’m not too sure about Bob’s Burgers.

This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
