It’s OK To Complain About The Simpsons 500th Episode, Because That’s What They Want A Cynical, Whiny Bitch Like Me To Do

The Simpsons 500th episode was nothing special. Julian Assange appeared as himself. wikileaks, whoop-dee-fucking-shit! I wrote FOX 18 years ago, asking to be on that show, when they had good writing. and they were all like “call us when you’ve got a web site full of useless information that only appeals to a tiny fraction of the population.” anyways, the Simpsons get kicked out of Springfield, start their own society off the grid, only to have the rest of Springfield show up. the best part of the episode was the opening montage of the previous 499 couch gags.

    You are very sparing with your 5 stars. Since these shows represent the very top crust for me, they are almost all 5 star shows for me.

    I also think you gave Simpsons too hard of a time, man! It was epic, them being thrown out!

    I think the dolphin Gervais episode of Family Guy is slightly overrated here.

    Overall, though, I agree with what you are saying and rating.

    p.s. Was planning on watching Life & Times Of Tim tonite. Hmm.
