What's Wrong with The Simpsons?

By Clive Python | 14jammar

This was a rant I did on The Simpsons, as you can tell, it's shite. At the time I really liked MrEnter, a guy who picks apart every aspect of a show, where Enter does a good job, I did not. This review of such is unfinished, I was going to bitch about Family Guy, but I stopped giving a crap about the review.

If you want to, you can view the old txt I made.

Part I: 'Homer's Night Out' - The Simpsons

You know, The Simpsons were 9 years old when I was born. At that time they had 185 episodes to count; they now have a eye-poping 580 (as of 19/Nov/15).

It's amazing that a TV show can have that many episodes, because of all this it means that there are going to be some bad ones. And there are.

I would say that the first bad episode would be episode 10's 'Homer's Night Out' (Production Code: 7G10) in this episode Bart gets a spy camera and takes a photograph of Homer (who is on a stagdoo) dancing with 'Princess Kashmir' a belly dancer. For some reason, this image is the talk of the town, Jesus, how boring is Springfield? Anyway, Marge see the image and is pissed off! She orders Homer out of the house until he shows Bart that women should not be taken advantaged of. Okay, not that I told you then plot, let me tell you why this is a bad episode; first off the bat is why is Marge so pissed of at Homer for dancing with another woman? It's not like he had his way with her, all he was doing was dancing with her. How was he treating her in a sexiest way?

Okay, if he told her "Oy, lov, get ya tits oot for the lads wil ya!!!" then yes, he would be sexist. But no, all he did was dance with her. That's all.

Next BS thing for me would be, why the hell is this image the talk of the town? It's a image of a man dancing with a woman; it's not like he had sex with her, is it.

But I need to forgive this episode, as it is only episode 10, and they were just starting off the show.

Part II: 'Lisa Goes Gaga' - The Simpsons

However, I can not forgive Season 23 episode 22 "Lisa Goes Gaga" staring Lady Gaga. But why you may ask? Well, here is what is wrong with it (keep in mind, I have only see the episode about three times), lets start off at the start shell we.

The episode starts off with Lady Gaga on a train going to her next concert, she passes through Springfield and sees how low the town's self-esteem is. Like the whole town. All of a town has low self-esteem. Do you know how dumb that is? How can a whole town have low self-esteem? That's silly.

Lisa, who BTW has low self-esteem, finds out that her fellow students voted her the most unpopular student. She tries to become popular by ghostwriting nice things about herself on a school blog titled 'Truth Teller'.

Jesus, they reeeealy know how to pull at our hart, I sure hope that Lady Gaga makes her happy!

Bart, the little shit-bag, tells the entire school that Lisa is writing the blog, this makes Lisa's social status drop even further. Thanks Bart! Lady Gaga is alerted by a psychic force about Lisa's depression, and goes to help her. WHAT! ARE YOU FUCKING ME HERE! THEY ARE MAKING LADY GAGA A FUCKING GOD! THIS IS BULLSHIT! WHY THE HELL DOES SHE HAVE A PSYCHIC FORCE?!?

-_- anyway...

After many, many attempts to make Lisa happy (by happy I mean be like Lady Gaga, and not a individual), Lisa freaks out at Lady Gaga, who then feels that she failed her mission (to be a twat). Lisa soon discovers that her outburst helped her in not bottling up her anger, and runs to find Lady Gaga. When she finds her, Lisa APOLOGIZES and Lady Gaga is relieved to find out that her mission was successful. The two then sing a duet, then Lady Gaga leaves, but not before Moe arrives and asks if she can help him out, but she turns him down.

Everything wrong with 'Lisa Goes Gaga':

1. Lady Gaga is portrayed as God-like
2. Everyone in the town is the same, ie why does everyone have a low self-esteem?
3. Lisa, who is usually strong, falls for this BS
4. Everyone in the town falls for Gaga
5. The episode is just making Gaga's ego bigger
6. Bart, who usually cares for Lisa, is a twat to her
7. The moral is, the only way to be happy is to be the same

In the end, this is a shit episode
