Thinking about this Gaga episode... maybe the rapture happened already
I'm totally ready to watch Lisa Goes Gaga...
I bet it'll be so bad it's good...
I'm hoping it's like New Kids on the Blecch, where the guest star totally makes fun of themselves. I could see Gaga going with that.
Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.
"One of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you've eaten, or how long you should go on vacation — if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you'll hate it. So it's the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn't get worn out." -- Jerry Seinfeld
Looks like there's a song in Sunday's episode.
Yeah as a way to blatantly tell the plot it was cute, singer was okay.
This is not fabulous but it's okay...

Wow...it really doesn't sound like Coogan, though maybe it's just the singing. You could tell it was him when he voiced the devil in the "Neighbours from Hell" cartoon (Ah, how I wish it had been picked up for a second season).
Maybe it needed fastest pacing? I usually love Steve Coogan in movies but yeah, it doesn't really sound like him, and I didn't like the singing voice too much.
Anyway the lyrics are ok and the shots were more dynamic than usual. It looks like a pretty decent episode, the setting is different and there seem to be some new secondary characters that could work. Looking forward to it.
My Simpsons homage!
I like that the essay the episode was named after was all about how horrible and artificial cruises are but in the simpsons they're the greatest thing in the world
Here's another preview for this Sunday's episode

Could this clip be a reference to The Simpsons currently being shown in syndication in which the episodes being shown are mostly the two most recent seasons to enter in syndication therefore making people bored?
My Simpsons Season 25 Ratings/Reviews:
Homerland (3.5/10) Treehouse of Horror XXIV (5.0/10) Four Regrettings and a Funeral (4.0/10) YOLO (4.5/10) Labor Pains (5.0/10) The Kid is All Right (3.0/10) Yellow Subterfuge (5.5/10) White Christmas Blues (1.5/10) Steal This Episode (7.0/10) Married to the Blob (5.5/10) Specs and the City (4.5/10)
I'm a big fan of both of those clips.
Really looking forward to this Sunday's episode.
My only concern at this point is pacing as it seems like they've got a lot to cram in to 22 minutes and the cruise material likely won't kick in until the 2nd act.
My bet is that the Monday-to-Friday clip is the beginning of the episode.
I hope the ending is the family living in an Government run Ice Station picking at a frozen toilet, or something. I know the status quoe should change every once in a great while, but that'd be stupid.
Very happy to hear Hot Chip on The Simpsons, but you can tell Al Jean just searched "boy" and "school" on Spotify to get music for his montage.
confirmation that the Lopez song in question is the one Steve Coogan is singing above. Boy they really are whoring out their work to other people now.
