    “The Simpsons are going to-“

    Delaware! Mars! Antarctica...next year.

    This phrase was used a lot in Seasons 12 and 13 it seems. I notice it’s flown under the radar as far as catchphrases go, despite it being a famed indicator to “oh no, it’s gonna be one of those episodes”. I want to ask how people feel about the phrase, whether they ever found it funny or aggravating, or have even cataloged every variation of it over the years.

    I tend to put "The Simpsons are going to..." in the episode descriptions on the Simpsons Archive website.
    Season 27: Paris ("To Courier with Love")
    Season 28: Boston ("The Town"), Cuba ("Havana Wild Weekend")
    Season 29: New Orleans ("Lisa Gets the Blues"), Denmark ("Throw Grampa from the Dane")
    Season 30: Florida ("Tis the '30th Season"), Marfa, Texas ("Mad About the Toy"), South Korea ("E My Sports"), Niagara Falls ("D'oh Canada")

    On the air, here is what I think is at least a partial list:
    Japan ("Thirty Minutes over Tokyo")
    Delaware ("Behind the Laughter", repeated in "Simpsons Tall Tales")
    Paris ("Lisa the Tree Hugger")
    Blockoland ("Hungry, Hungry Homer")
    Africa ("Simpson Safari")
    Mars ("Sweets and Sour Marge")

    Treehouse of horror episodes used to be the diamond in the rough for me.. until a few years back anyway..

    Location episodes are usually the least enjoyable for me.. it's usually a poorly written love letter to wherever they are going.

    They weren’t always love letters. They certainly have been recently, such as Thow Grampa From the Dane, but remember Bart vs. Australia and Blame it on Lisa? The latter got Brazil really riled up.

    "The Simpsons are going to Macon, Georgia!"

    That should totally happen.

    This too. If the Brazil thing happened today, the episode would have been banished.
