Episode Reminder: Treehouse of Horror XXXI (Season 32, Episode 4)

Tidings Terrific Television Tune-in’ers!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “T”)

 

PLEASE NOTE, THIS POST IS A DUPLICATE FROM TWO WEEKS AGO. THE THOH EPISODE WAS SUPPOSED TO AIR TWO WEEKS AGO. WHILE IT DID AIR IN CANADA, THE AMERICAN AIRING WAS POSTPONED TWO WEEKS DUE TO THE BASEBALL PLAYOFFS THE LAST TWO SUNDAYS.

 

Were you excited to see The Simpsons return with another new episode last week? Did you enjoy the episode? How did it fare for a time piece episode? Did you enjoy the trip to Ancient Rome? Can’t wait for another new Simpsons episode? Well you won’t have to wait too long for the next such episode as The Simpsons is back this Sunday, with an all new episode! Woohoo!

So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode, the season’s third episode, this Sunday, November 1st, 8pm on FOX (already aired in Canada on City TV two weeks ago)….“Treehouse of Horror XXXI”!

So what do The Simpsons have in store for us this week?

Friday Filler – Deciding Who Is Driving This Car

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I love that we got another vehicle for our towns. I don’t love that we still can’t place them on streets. But, then again, I’m not sure I want a “Demon Car” roaming around my town on a daily basis. We have enough demons to deal with in real life. Making it easy for them to move around easily is not going to help the situation. 

I put mine near the “Destruction Derby;” where all demon cars belong.

This update, and so many other updates in the past couple of years, feels the same. It’s just one long revolution around a track. Same process, same scenery types, with a handful of new characters or skins thrown in. But, because of the added availability  of options with the increased Item Cap, I do feel as if some sort of decision making in regards to “where this car goes,” is back in my hands.

Are we at the wheel? Or do we just THINK we are at the wheel? And even if we are at the wheel, where in the hell (pun intended for this update) are we going???

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by talking about a Jewish blessing, the berakhah. (Please note, I am not sharing an opinion about religion, just stating facts relating to a topic pertinent to the episode.)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

No new Simpsons tonight,  World Series instead.

Halloween Act 2 hit our pocket-sized towns on Friday. Thoughts on Act 2 so far?  Act 1?

Believe it or not Halloween will be here in less than a week! Costume plans?
