“The Simpsons” Feature in “Apollo 13” Trailer

Homer Simpson takes one small step for man kind 

Apollo 13  was the seventh manned mission in the American Apollo space program and the third intended to land on the Moon while Homer Simpson is one of the dumbest characters you will see in your life time.

Doesn’t sound like a good combination does it? That’s what I thought until I saw this well crafted Apollo 13 and The Simpsons Mashup.

All I can say now is God Speed Homer…God Speed!

 

Ay-Caramba! TV Channel dedicated to The Simpsons

Fox Look to Give The Simpsons its own TV Channel

TV Channel

Legendary TV show The Simpsons will quiet possibly be getting its very own TV channel.

News Corp.’s Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey had this to say about the idea:

Carey said there have been a “number of meetings” to determine how to capitalize on its library of episodes of The Simpsons and he mentioned a digital channel featuring nothing but Homer and the gang as being a possibility. Carey said it is incumbent on the company to take advantage of a show that is “unique in television with a volume, too, that is unprecedented.”

No Rush

The deal may be in the works but don’t expect the Simpsons Channel on your sky box while new episodes are still being pumped out.

If the Simpsons where to air every episode from start to finish (episode 500) it would take 10.5 whole days to get through them!

Lisa Goes GaGa for Guest Star Lady Gaga on ‘The Simpsons’

“Lisa Goes Gaga”

Since the very beginning, I’ve always wanted to have on the most iconic personalities of our time, and she’s it. – Matt Groening

GaGa helps with Self Esteem

The Simpsons and Lady Gaga are teaming up for an upcoming episode of  The Simpsons about self-esteem and sequins entitled Lisa Goes GaGa

The episode finds Gaga rushing to Springfield after finding out the town is swarming with low self- esteem. There, she rescues a depressed Lisa through the powers that be GaGa.

GaGa says she took her experience seriously and with all sincerity:

I make music, but I don’t do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny, I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor. That’s what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines. I would say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.

Simpsons executive producer Al Jean said that it was the first time the show has had a “show business legend” younger than the series itself.

This is one Simpsons Episode You can’t afford to miss out on. With all the guest stars to appear on The Simpsons, you rarely find one that actually lives a life as crazy as a prime time Animated Comedy.

“Lisa Goes GaGa” will air in the spring of 2012 as part of the ‘Simpsons’ 23rd season, which debuts September 25, 2011 on Fox.

More Surprises in Store

  • The Simpsons won’t shoot 1,000 years into the future to do a cross-over with Futurama, but it will jump ahead to a Simpsons Christmas 30 years in the future — and the episode was written by former Futurama writer J. Stewart Burns. In other intriguing news, the family will journey to their seventh and final continent, Antarctica, and in one episode, Mr. Burns has an iPad app called “Angry Burns.”
  • Last season, couple-in-the-making Ned Flanders and Mrs. Krabappel – a.k.a. Nedna – hit a roadblock when he found out about all the men she’d been with. The show — which has placed the fate of the pair in the hands of fans, who can vote here – will honor their choice and stick with the storyline. No tricks. (For the record, the producers seemed to be more in favor of the love connection than the audience did.) Groening explained his pro-Nedna stance this way: “Bart deserves his teacher living next door.”

The Simpsons Spell Took Control of the World, It Took Control Of You

Then Came The Simpsons Plague, A Disaster

Your mind-set was locked in. The Simpsons is and always will be Funny. After watching up to Season 7 who could argue with You. Season 8 and 9 air, you adjust to the slightly lower standard of Episodes. That’s when “The Simpsons” unleashed the Simpsons Plague: Seasons 10 – 22

What followed were years and years of Sub standard Simpsons Episodes: Bad jokes, Bad Writing, No punch. It turned into a Generic Comedy: Storyline here, Place Joke their, End Episode.

A Disaster, but only to the trained eye of Hardcore Fans.

Writing on The Wall

Hardcore fans could see the writing on the wall: The Simpsons was Finished! In their all-seeing eyes, “The Simspons”, would never be the same again.

Many stopped watching, others only watched periodically, none were taken in by the Simpsons Spell. Unfortunately They were in the minority

How Can You Argue Against 5 Million People

For every Hardcore fan their were 100,000 Simpsons Fans who still adored the show, watching it mindlessly in front of the TV, still telling themselves The Simpsons is Funny, its Funny, funny funny funny.

That is exactly the mentality that has kept the Simpsons Plague spreading. It’s what has kept it on TV for over 22 Seasons and counting. The Simpsons is a Powerhouse started by an animated Comedy that gained Worldwide fame, then spawned merchandise, which together created The Simpsons Franchise.

On average, Season 22 gets 5 million viewers. Proving that You are under the Simpsons Spell, which continues to conquer all.

Can This spell be Replicated?

Has It? Can It? Will It Ever?

In short Yes. But its not been done yet. Both Family Guy and South Park have tried to replicate the success shown by the Simpsons but neither has achieved it.

South Park have tried but rumours have circulated that this Season, (15) will be the last. That leaves it 7 away from the Simpsons which is still powering forward.

Family Guy is in Season 9 and will defiantly carry onto Season 10 at the very least. However Family Guy will never have the Longevity or the Worldwide impact The Simpsons achieved.

Get YourSelf Tested

Do You want to know if you are a Simpsons Zombie? Watch any Simpsons Episode from Season 10 onwards and see if you Laugh out Loud at anytime. If you don’t, I can confirm you are a Simpsons Zombie. What’s the cure? I’ll tell you another Time…
