    The family will take Grampa there because he is sick. It will partly be a marriage crisis episode.

    It will probably be KTAAR in Cuba. Woo hoo.
    I'll be surprised if there isn't a scene where Homer or Bart somehow offend or injure Fidel Castro and end up being chased by the Cuban army.

    They were actually from the Season 27 thread, but they were moved to this one due to them being about an upcoming Season 28 episode.

    EDIT: You just crossed that out, so nevermind.

    So there's gonna be a two parter (the first one since Who Shot Mr. Burns? and the second one so far)? That sounds quite interesting.

    Yeah, it will most likely be 2 parts, but each are 11 minutes, making it the length of a normal episode. Or something like that.

    Or the second part will not be related to the first.

    Or it won't have two parts at all, and will actually be called "The Great Phatsby: Part One and Two".

    Honestly, though, i'm kinda scared. I mean, the writers can barely fill up TWENTY minutes, i dread how they'll fill up 40.

    It’s more of an hour-long episode than a two-parter.

    If we're even that lucky; the way they are listed as separate episodes with separate production codes would logically point at two 22 minute episodes, but maybe it'll be something of a fakeout like suggested in the two posts above you (oh, the cynicism).

    Honestly, I'll be surprised if it turns out to be any good at all.

    I wouldn't be surprised if "The Great Phatsby" resembles those "very special episodes" of sitcoms that were big in the 80's

    This is almost as good as the time @steamed_hamms predicted Lisa Goes Gaga. He made up a joke episode called "Homer BadROMANCE" where Homer meets Lady Gaga. The best part? He said it would be in Season 23.

    Maybe I oughtta take a crack at predicting something and stop focusing on so many crossovers. (Though I still can see a "Simpsonian Dad!" happening, but it may end up being an American Dad! episode rather than a Simpsons episode.)

    I think that, if The cad and the hat is actually called The CAD and the hat, then the "Mr. Burns gets an Oculus Rift device" will this episode.

    Also, maybe the animation will change when the first WABF will be aired. I think that the animation we have nowadays is one of the animations that stayed the longest time possible: I think there already was this animation since Season 22.

    I think this Season will be better for the fans than the previous ones, meaning Season 26 and 27.

    Did anyone remark that we're not even a week after Orange is the new yellow's first airing, and we already know 12 (13 if you count The great Phatsby's two parts as 2 episodes) episode titles of this Season?

    "You're perfect! In fact, you're better than perfect! Next to you, perfection is crap!"

    It was said in a 1997 episode. But if it were said in a recent episode (from the mid 2000s to for now), I'd take it as irony.

    I don't believe in modern Simpsons nor golden era: I'm an atheist

    Don't fear the roofer!

    I'm a post-20th century Simpsons episodes defender.

    The ones who say "Zombie Simpsons" make me laugh.

    I'm a girl but I say #NotMyDoctor anyway.

    We know There will be Buds is a Selman episode, presumably written by Jimmy McGill's lesser known brother.

    Since Selman always does four shows per season, I'm assuming Friends and Family, written by J. Stewart Burns, is the other one.

    Also, Wikipedia isn't 100% reliable in its info. Someone put Chris Clements' name as being the director for last Sunday's finale. Watched the show, and it turned out to be Matthew Faughnan instead. Recommend not relying upon wikis for info.

    What “animations” are you talking about, and why do you think they would change?

    I think of that because the studio has changed.

    If Film Roman lost The Simpsons, that would be huge news, and I can't find anything on it. Do you have a source?
