Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball – Season 1

Hey hey there friends!

So… the other week or so, Alissa told me that Totbox planned a hiatus from the amazing Throwback posts that I’ve come to love and while I’ll miss the hilarity that is Totbox covering episodes of the Best. Show. Ever., I wondered if it was time for me to step into the arena and take on each season of The Simpsons. Wow though. Writing about each episode of the show is a task and a half. How to find time to watch each one and then give it the due diligence like Tot? It seemed like something that might end up low on my honey-do list.wookieetabletfull2Of course, then coincidence and a confluence of events occurred. One of the goals we’ve had on the site is to provide a variety of different formats for content for y’all. We already have the occasional gameplay videos from Alissa and I hope you’ve checked out the 5 episodes of Addicts Live. They’re a hoot and I’ve really enjoyed being on the last few. The last frontier we hadn’t crossed yet was just doing a podcast. But wait… I’m already doing that. In case you missed my blatant self-promotion from a few months back, I have been recording a podcast of my own where I ramble on about life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. I’ve been having a great time and somehow have kept the show going for 23 episodes. This is where we get to said coincidence. Continue reading

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E15 Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

Hello, you Bast… (Whoops, I mean) legitimate children. Brothers from another mother, and Sisters from a different mister. Aren’t we all related somehow? (Though secretly wish we weren’t)

Long Lost Relative stories are relatively interesting. 🙂  and this one is not that much different. Let’s pull the curtain back, and let me REUNITE you with this episode:

“Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Homer finds his long lost half-brother and that’s just the half of it.

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E14 Principal Charming

Hello lonely people,

There are plenty fish in the sea, the right one is out there, you just have to stop being so picky, you need to have faith and need to love yourself first. Any of this sound familiar? Well it’s mostly untrue :p  so let me Set You Up with a distraction:

“Principal Charming”

Homer plays Stupid Cupid and Skinner falls for the wrong girl

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E13 Homer Vs Lisa and the 8th Commandment

Hello fellow sinners,

This episode is based heavily on a religious doctrine. I shall not give you a biblical lesson, if thou wants to know, thy shall ask thy mother and father or a search engine. The 8th commandment in this case, is “Thou Shall Not Steal” though depending on your faith it might fall on a different numbered placement.

I shall not steal anymore of your time, so here it is:

“Homer Vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment”
Lisa wants to coax Homer away from his illegal Coax-Cable hookup

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E12 The Way We Was

Why do Words suddenly appear, every time you are here (on TSTO Addicts)?

*all dolled up in my most prom-iest attire* Would you do me the honor of going to a Prom Themed Throwback with me?

No?! Well I’m going to go by myself then. I remember my first Thowback, it felt fresh and everyone who read it had something to say. It was a while ago but feels like it was yesterday to me *everything getting foggy and …. * Nope, nope. No time for flashbacks, lets focus on the current post (about a flashback episode).

“The Way We Was”
Homer and Marge PROM(ise) to stay together in this 70’s flashback

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E11 One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish

Ureshii Mase!! (I lost my Japanese translator so I went with what Frinkiac said)

It is THURSDAY and you know what that means, meatloaf night. But before you get the ketchup let me catch-You-Up on some old episodes with another throwback, (some of you are sighing *another one?*) yes. Ohhh Myy, there are some special guest-star voices to make this throwback sound a little sweeter, *bowing and walking away backwards as I present the title* enjoy:

“One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish”
They say “you are what you eat”, so Homer might end up as a dead fish

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E10 Bart Gets Hit by a Car

There I was minding my own business when Alissa came to me and said “You Better Write Another Throwback Post or Else!!” I quivered in my innocence and quickly got to work. …OK, that’s not what really happened (good thing I’m not under oath) but if Lionel Hutz was my lawyer that’s what I might say.

I plead the 5th regarding what was the first trial or lawsuit or even Lawyer in history out of fear of litigation. Who, what and where is still debated and that means the Jury’s still out on that one. :p

I have seen some interesting cases (during my time travels), witch trails, monkey trials, even a trail where the guy pretended he couldn’t put on a glove.. (What was his last name? oh never mind). There have been lots of trials. I rest my case… Wait, not yet, I have Exhibit B (for Bart) when this alleged incident occurred:

“Bart Gets Hit by a Car”

What the Heck happened to Bart? Only his new found Lawyer can say (or tell Bart what to say)

Totbox’s Throwback Tuesday: S2 E9 Itchy & Scratchy & Marge

What do we want?!! When do we want it?!! NOW!
Too bad, you’re are getting a Throwback Thursday Post instead :p
I want to start with an angry letter:
Dear EA, your lack of cartoon violence is upsetting to me… Just kidding, it’s fine BUT I want the two characters the fight and bite in our game as real playable characters. I might go on strike… I might make other empty threats… I might be writing this as partial filler to my post to set the mood to the theme… In closing, The Simpsons Tapped Out Addicts is a power and voice that you can ignore, but if you continue to ignore, Our Empty Threats might get Louder, like one Simpson family member (from this episode).
“Itchy & Scratchy & Marge”
Marge fights and bites/writes to get cartoon violence off TV

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E8 Bart the daredevil

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, This THURSDAY, THURSDAY, THURSDAY, Get ready for something amazing!!!

Wait, it is Thursday?… I don’t know if I’ll be able to live up to that hype :p

Evel Knievel was alive when this episode aired on December 6th 1990, and he may have had some flashbacks to his failed jump at Snake River Canyon (1974). You would have thought he would have died many times over (considering he is world record holder for the most bones broken in a lifetime) but he passed away (unrelated to stunts) in the year 2007. But this isn’t an eulogy, it’s a celebration to the insane art of Danger. Put on your safety goggles, and knee pads, and helmets, and gloves, and seatbelts, and cups (if you need one), And get ready for this extreme episode:

“Bart the Daredevil”

“Danger” ISN’T Bart’s middle name but he’d prefer it.
