Clash of Clones Stuff (A Special Where Did THOSE Come From)

Attack! Defend! Destroy! Maim!  Invade!  Nerds!

Phew… way too much war in this Wookiee’s blood.  I keep waiting for someone to yell “MEDIC!” so I can go help them.  Wowza… we’re about 2 weeks into the Clash of Clones event and I figured it was time to start some WDTCF goodness for my favorite tappers.  Of course, a lot doesn’t even come from The Simpsons.  So, my thoughts on this whole thing are that EA decided somewhere in the writers/creative team offices that it’d be fun to turn the tables and do something different.  Additionally, one or two of them might have a grudge against a certain strategy game that is #1 in mobile apps.  The result of course is the current shenanigans we find ourselves in right now.

Of course, to lampoon something properly, you have to emulate it and I thought it’d be interesting to take a look at that.  First up, we have to know a bit more about the original item being made fun of.

Simpsons News: Every. Simpsons. Ever. FOREVER

So I have good news and bad news.  Bad is that it’s The Simpsons marathon is over.  Sad face.  I suppose I have to let other people in the house pick the channels now.  The good news though is apparently FOX plans to use it’s sister channels to play Every. Simpsons. Ever. FOREVER.  Ok ok, I’ll be the first to admit that people and places say forever in the wrong context (like when kids say but that’ll take forever) but I thought I’d pop in and share the news.

Simpsons on FXX

At the risk of this site seeming like an ad agency for the FXX Network, I was watching the Simpsons Marathon and noticed a new commercial.  Like a lot of us suspected, FXX will now air The Simpsons every week.  Their ad literally said “binge binge binge rest binge binge rest repeat” and announced FXX will be showing Every Simpsons Ever FOREVER starting today, Tuesday September 2nd. Seems Wednesdays and Sundays are official rest days now.

Figured it’d be fun to share a couple images from the ads for y’all.

FXX Simpsons Forever

The basic are there will be Simpsons block parties Sun-Tues and Thur-Fri.  I checked my programming guide and it looks like this means 4 hour blocks from 5-9 PM.  I’m sure other local channels in the US show The Simpsons but this might be the most that’s shown at one time that is available.  Granted it’s cable but still pretty amazing.  Another commercial also announced the marathon continues on FXNow which is their on demand video service.

What are your thoughts?  Excited?  Anhedonic?  Still recovering from the 12 day marathon and feeling dead like a butterfly’s life expectancy?  Sound off below.

TTFN… Wookiee out!
