… “THE SIMPSONS” Tree House of Horrors episodes were good? Because this year’s was lame. I know “THE SIMPSONS” hasn’t been close to even B- game in a while, but one could at least count on the Halloween episode to provide a nice Springfield filter on classic genre tales.
Year 19 though? Ouch. Flaccid TRANSFORMERS riff? Pointless hat tip to “MAD MEN”? It’s the frakin’ one day of the year all celebrate the genre, why play off giant robots and – as much as I love the show – advertising executives from the ’60s? The Grand Pumpkin was cool, but that’s about it.
Or am I really just becoming an incredibly grumpy old man far too fast in life?
