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

Here’s the episode information released from FOX:

“Marge has amazing memories of being the stage manager of her high school musical, Y2K: The Millennium Bug, and decides to restage it with everyone 20 years later for one last show. But when her old high school nemesis comes to town, she realizes that her high school memories aren’t what she thought they were. The only place Marge sang beautifully was in her head, so she has a magical inside singing voice that only we can hear. When she sings, it comes out beautifully, like Kristen Bell.

Unfortunately now that The Simpsons has moved from Fox to the House of Mouse, the YouTube channel “Animation on Fox” is no longer posting sneak peeks.

 

Be sure to tune in tomorrow night to see all the fun!

As always, after the episode airs we’ll have a full episode recap!

    I just wish they wouldn’t rewrite “history” and make Marge and Homer’s past take place earlier and earlier. I would rather it be timeless if they have scenes from the past.

    Any idea what the tie-in in TSTO will be tonight after the new episode airs?

  2. I think they should end the show soon…the actors and Matt Groening are getting on they should cancel while they are able to properly make a series finale with the actors…
