Hey hey friends!
With a bit of downtime happening for all of us, I thought it might be time for another edition of Simpsons News. Season 28 is rapidly approaching (seriously… less than two months!) and that generally brings a rush of news our way. It also helps that Comic Con just happened which always brings stuff straight from the showrunners mouths. Despite the fact that I know all of you readers have access to the ultraweb, I figured I’d conglomerate some fun news in one place with links and videos. Without further words, let’s get to it.
As a big fan of geek culture, San Diego Comic Con International is one of those events every year that I completely look forward to. Every year we get lots of geek news and to add a big ol’ cherry to the top of my happiness sundae, every year brings us a Simpsons panel. Check out what this Entertainment Weekly article had to say about the panel.
Here’s a couple clips from the panel. The first one is the intro they created for it.
Also a fun James Bond parody about the 600th episode.
Then there’s some info about guest stars and THOH XXVII.
And lastly, some stuff from the Q&A.
One of the things that doesn’t surprise me is the mention of there being a Pokemon Go episode. The show often parodies culture so why not? I just hope they make fun of it appropriately. Rolling Stone did a good article about the episode.
And here’s the clip they were discussing if you don’t feel like reading.
This is actually just a rehash of a clip from “To Cur, With Love” (S24:E8) when Homer became addicted to VillageVille but still fun. As far as the THOH XXVII stuff goes, I enjoyed this article from USA Today.
Since we’re talking Season 28 which starts September 25th, 2016, what do you think about the title for the first episode, “Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus,” an episode showing flashbacks from Monty’s childhood? Any opinions about Adventure Time being a crossover? All I can say is MATHMATICAL!
This isn’t a complete stretch since one of the groups of doppelgangers from Treehouse of Horror XXV was the family dressed up like this awesome show.
While this site is not a place for talk about politics, The Simpsons has never been shy about revealing their own political leanings. August 1st brought us the writers’ feelings about the current United States Presidential Race. This article from BBC News summarizes it.
or you could watch the video clip if you want to. Fair warning… this is left-leaning and not an endorsement by the site but I do think it’s hilarious and pokes fun at both candidates… one more than the other.
I mainly included this because I knew by leading you to other videos on the Animation Domination YouTube page, inevitably this clip would aslo be viewed. Please note that any political comments left about this or the presidential race will be moderated and most likely deleted. Politics is just one of those things best left out like religion, sex, death, and eating Thai food. Definitely avoid how left-leaning people die eating Thai food while right-leaning religious people have sex.
Anyhoo… other news is Apple making a deal to include the Best. Show. Ever. on their TVs.
Also a really fun article about 9 ideas for how The Simpsons could end. My vote is for #9 but #5 appeals to the dreamer in me and #1 is a fan favorite for a reason.
Have you ever heard the theory that Moe Szyslak has always known that Bart was pranking him? I actually hadn’t since I avoid reddits at all costs but this article popped up on my newsfeed and I thought it was worth a read.
I think that’s enough news for one post. What do you think of all of it? Sound off with your thoughts and just remember what I said about the potentially inflammatory subject. I’m off to live my life like a yellow fuzzy hurricane of joy and happiness. Vote Chewbacca/Solo for 2016… Let the Wookiee win!
TTFN… Wookiee out!
