  1. Especially since they sort of designed the character to look like her as well. It's always hard to make female characters on The Simpsons cute.
  2. Because of election coverage, we lost out on a tenth episode for this season that was to be the season finale. As far as I can tell, it's not being rescheduled. There are still four episodes that were produced for the fifth season (509-512) that haven't aired.
  3. You'd figure she'd be at the wedding, at least.
  4. He looks like "The Boy" from the movie of the same name.
  5. It's pretty much the same joke as a sketch that aired on the show 20 years ago, in the Tobey Maguire episode from 2000. Where Will Ferrell takes a yoga class in order to be able to.....accomplish this goal https://streamable.com/w578u
  6. Yeah, oddly enough this was production code episode 401, when the rest of the ones this season have all been the ones produced for the fifth season. No idea why they held onto this episode for as long as they did.
  7. I know they were sort of in the middle of various storylines in this episode that they had to wrap up from last season, but it was still strange to see Taylor attending a graduation ceremony with a bunch of people gathered together, Anna-Kat making plans to go to a sleepaway camp during the summer, etc. I guess this show is really going to take place in an alternate reality where the pandemic isn't an issue. I guess it makes sense, this show has never really been a topical show but mostly light, entertaining fluff. It'll be interesting to see which comedies returning over the next few
  8. I came up with Sean Penn right away, and Forest Whitaker after I thought for a little bit. I was assuming the third one was Jennifer Jason Leigh, who has been nominated for an Academy Award (for "The Hateful Eight") but didn't win. The third one is actually Nicolas Cage, who is kinda barely in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (and I think is credited as Nicolas Coppola in it). It was his first screen role.
  9. Who's the other one besides Bryan Callen?
  10. The weird thing is she seemed to be going in the right direction when she was saying "I remember them eating something brown!", then decided to trust her friend anyway, which was a bad idea.
  11. This show has had four different showrunners in as many seasons. Not sure if that's intentional on their part to mix things up, or what. I will say that the slow, meandering quality of the last season was not great. This new showrunner was a writer for "Black-ish" and the Larry Wilmore show on Comedy Central, so we'll see.
  12. They actually designed the character to look like Stephen Tobolowsky, which I find amusing. The character that Jamie Lee Curtis played earlier in the season looked like her as well, to the point where when I first saw the character (even before she spoke) I wondered why she looked exactly like JLC.
  13. You can say "blow your load" on broadcast TV now, huh? Funny that in today's streaming age, "basic cable" is no longer a thing that springs to anyone's mind, yet "Basic Instinct", a movie from 1992, still is. Sharon Stone's crotch shot will live forever I guess!
  14. Cyndi was big in the '80s, has always been big in the LGBTQ community, has a song called "Venus in Chains"... In addition, she was an actress for a brief period ("Vibes" with Jeff Goldblum, anyone?)
  15. Yeah, I found this sketch really culturally tone-deaf and borderline offensive. Especially lines like "Even in a pandemic, you can't keep a good ho down!" Even if they were trying to make a satirical point, it really seemed like the jokes were more at the women's expense than at the NBA players. I'm kind of surprised the female cast members in the sketch were OK with playing such unflattering caricatures.
  16. Yeah, last week's episode had me wondering what the reality of the show is now. It doesn't seem like either Peter or Lois can understand Stewie, but Brian does, and as we saw in this episode, Chris does as well. I don't recall offhand if Stewie has ever had conversations with Meg before, but it seems like he has.
  17. Maybe they think just because there's not a live audience there to see them, the TV audience can't see them as well? 😃
  18. I feel like the Seahorse is Carly Rae Jepsen. I've listened to her music enough that I am fairly certain I can recognize her voice, and even the little "Hey!"s that she would periodically interject into the song while singing were very CRJ-esque. Plus in the clue package there was a sign that said "Emotion Ocean", and "Emotion" is the name of one of her albums.
  19. According to this Variety article, the new voice of Cleveland, Arif Zahir, doesn't take over the role until Season 19, which is just going into production now. So we've still got an entire season's worth of episodes with Henry still voicing the character.
  20. Was Mike Henry not doing Cleveland's voice in this episode? I wasn't sure, but yeah, that was dead on if that was his replacement. I could sort of tell a little bit with Carl on the Simpsons, but not at all with Cleveland in this ep.
  21. Episode 508 of this current season aired all the way back in August 2019 (this week's show was 504), so I'm guessing these episodes have been in the can for quite a while.
  22. Somewhere in Popcorn's clue package was a movie theater marquee that said "Proud Mary", which was a movie starring Taraji P. Henson. While I'm guessing they probably wouldn't be that obvious in their clues, it would make sense that "Popcorn" would be an actress who's been in movies.
  23. Heh, I guess. I had to look up who most of them were. I laughed when I figured out Jerry Ferrara is "Turtle" from Entourage.
  24. Other than Caroline Rhea and Constance Zimmer, the lineup for this week's "58th Episode Celebration" (the hell?) is kind of weird. http://thefutoncritic.com/listings/20200908abc03/
