Hey there squishers, crashers and general alien warfighters!
Wookiee popping by with some Simpsons Halloween News. Between college, mid-terms, and a job fighting zombies in the apocalypse at Knott’s Scary Farm, I haven’t been around much and for that I apologize. Alissa the Amazing and Bunny Foo Foo have been manning Fort Addicts awesomely.
In a rare break from cell biology, Roman history, women’s rights issues, politics of WWI and general resting of my bones/voice, I decided to catch up on some Simpson’s news and what to my weary eyes should appear but a commercial announcing that FXX is broadcasting 24 Treehouse of Horror episodes in a row on Sunday 26 October 2014. Starting at 9 AM, FXX will be all-TOH for a solid 12 hours.
I know everyone doesn’t have availability to enjoy this but I thought I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention it here for those that do. I won’t be able to watch all of it but my DVR will certainly be recording 12 hours of Halloween entertainment. Here’s a couple articles I found with more info. Apparently FXX will also have mini-marathons throughout the following week. The schedule is in the second article.
Best news is that FXX stated they have more themed marathons planned for the future. Woo hoo!
Hope this event finds everyone well. I’m plugging away at it just like the rest of you and can admit I’d be lost without my sister Addicts. Much love as always from the resident fuzzball. I’ll be back with my usual presence November 3rd. TTFN… Wookiee out!
P.S. If you’re curious about the zombie fighting (I pronounce that ‘Zambies’ by the way), check out this video.
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.
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.
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.
