Reading Digest: Zombie Simpsons Sadness Edition

King Size Homer5

“Mom, were you ever planning to step in and put a stop to this?” – Lisa Simpson
“Normally your father’s crackpot schemes fizzle out as soon as he finds something good on TV.  But this season . . .” – Marge Simpson

We’re just two weeks away from the tediousness of new Zombie Simpsons and that fact has been noticed by many a fall TV preview.  A couple of them are linked below, but even people who write serious television season previews can hardly be bothered with Zombie Simpsons.  The dominant feeling seems to be one of apathetic ambivalence.  Most are willing to say that it’s far removed from what it used to be, but there’s often a lingering nostalgic hope.  I didn’t read anything that thought the show might be back on its way to the top, but the perpetual desire for better Simpsons keeps even a dim flame burning.  I can’t think of any other television show that was once so very good that, more than a decade later, people are willing to spontaneously cheer for a return to something kinda close. 

As usual there’s also an assorted hodgepodge of usage, YouTube and tangentially related ephemera.  Oh, and there’s a couple of video game links too. 

Enjoy.

Rusty Hearts Preview – A video game review that begins with excellent usage:

"Oh I wish, I wish, I hadn’t killed that fish." – so says Homer in the classic Treehouse of Horror V episode of The Simpsons when he accidentally does something in the present (technically though the past) that he knows is going to screw-up his future.

Cupcake the simpson dan winnie the pooh – This isn’t in English, but it involves cupcakes so it doesn’t need to be.

My Favorite TV Show Fan Sites – Some love for SNPP:

It includes detailed breakdowns of each of the shows main characters, pop culture references that have been used on the show, cuts that have been made to the episodes in their syndication run, detailed floor plans of 742 Evergreen Terrace and other buildings in Springfield, a history of Simpsons tribute sites on the internet, and rules for playing a Simpsons drinking game. It even has the pantone and RGB colors that are used for the show’s animation.

This blog would not exist without it.

Cape Fear (1962) – A quick review of the original Sideshow Bob movie.

Goin All City w/ Mod & Todd… – You should click on this for the blog banner alone.  It’s just layered pink donuts and a very happy looking Homer.

Reasons to keep breathing this fall! – Previews for a bunch of fall shows with a ton of YouTube.  Sadly, he’s right about Zombie Simpsons:

Now entering its 23rd season, The Simpsons has a bought a lifetime of goodwill with its brilliant first decade.

A Joint Venture of Matsumura Fishworks and Tamaribuchi Heavy Manufacturing Concern. – Unfortunately, the YouTube here has been taken down by the fun police at FOX, but that doesn’t change the fact that multiple rewatchings of “In Marge We Trust” will tell you everything you need to know to visit Japan.

Trolling? Simpsons Already Did It! – Heh.  Bart and Homer drawn as classic troll images.

The Simpsons Soccer Scene! – YouTube of the Mexico vs. Portugal commercial.

Apollo 18…In 10 Words – They’ll clog the instruments!

Silence IS Golden – Excellent real life usage:

Client, “Well, they sell it at Trader Joe’s. Maybe you could look next time you’re there.”

I looked at her again, blankly annoyed, since clearly she’d mistaken me for the Client Services Coordinator.

Me, “We don’t have that, but we do have a single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man’s hat.”

REDRUM – I’ve never tried to use Adobe Creative Suite CS 5.5, but this woman alleviated her frustrations with said program with “No TV and No Beer” YouTube.  I watch that even without struggling through new software.

Greg Daniels Teams With NBC To Develop Friday Night Dinners For American TV – Greg Daniels is (potentially) bringing a show about a wacky Jewish family from the UK to the US.

Ned Flanders Minecraft Skin – Exactly what it says it is.

Frank Gehry Really, Really Regrets His Guest Appearance on The Simpsons – Hear that, other celebrities?  Don’t appear on Zombie Simpsons!  

George Lucas = Homer Simpson as Krusty the Clown? – Comparing Lucas’ constant revising of the original Star Wars movies with Homer almost killing the Krusty Burglar.  Includes YouTube.  Also, yeah.

Is the HOMER in Homer Simpson a hidden meaning to say that he’s a home type of guy? – Yahoo! Answers – God bless Yahoo Answers, the kiddie pool of the internet:

Is the HOMER in Homer Simpson a hidden meaning to say that he’s a home type of guy?
He likes to stay at home and he’s a simpleton.
Homer- Simpson…right?

Always good for a chuckle.

Realistic Belief In The KC Chiefs – The start of the NFL season is always so much fun, especially when it comes with angst from Chiefs fans, excellent usage, and an animated .gif:

I want to discuss the logic of Haley’s offseason strategy here, because I know to some people it makes sense.  And to me, that doesn’t make sense.  Allow me to quote Bart Simpson (from the Hank Scorpio episode):

“Let me get this straight: we’re behind the rest of our class and we’re going to catch up to them by going slower than they are? Coo-Coo!”

The Simpsons Season Premiere Preview Shows Kiefer Sutherland In Springfield – And finally, we have this very “meh” writeup of the new season of Zombie Simpsons.  It has good parts:

This is always a bittersweet subject for me. The Simpsons can account for ten of the finest seasons of television ever produced. It also has more than ten seasons of mediocrity or worse.

Which are followed by bad parts:

What was once my favorite show has fallen completely off my schedule. Well, almost completely. The other day I caught an episode I hadn’t seen and somehow, it wasn’t that bad. Did I miss something? Is it good again? This preview for the upcoming season suggests… maybe.

And it goes from there to discuss the fact that Kiefer Sutherland is back for the premier.  Then it concludes:

Because of the endless amount of material needed to keep a series running for twenty three years, they have to resort to outlandish plots and endless cameos to stay interesting. The best episodes, like the newer one I discussed earlier, definitely have some absurd elements but they’re all firmly grounded in a fairly real world of Springfield, USA and its colorful cast of characters. I’d like to see more of that. I miss them.

Two things: first, he doesn’t mention which episode he caught recently.  I’d kinda like to know that.  Second, and more importantly, is the overall bittersweet attitude.  Everyone would love it if they ever got good again, and some people just won’t let go of that last whisper of hope.  But it’s not getting better, and it never will.  I miss them too.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. 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.
