    Man, they're using Tuttle a lot lately, aren't they? Richard Kind is getting work, so I'm not complaining. Hell, even Klaus wants to bang Tuttle. Totally American Dad to start out with Roger wanting to sell homemade jeans off the home shopping network, and then the jeans turned out to be evil. Or at least a spaceship or something? I loved that Dee Bradley Baker was using his Olmec voice for the jeans. I liked the total absurdity of the Freaky Friday plot with Stan & Steve's eyebrows when they looked exactly the same, when it turned out EVERYONE noticed them.

    "WHY do you make it so hard to love you?" Has this show tackled DnD before? I feel like they did, but I liked it here. So Steve combines DnD and Baseball and pretty much invents Blernsball? I'm here for it. Yep, totally Roger to create actual drama in the house to replace Sex Hospital (love that show name btw). I loved that Francine kept breaking the fourth wall, like she can't picture Jeff and Hayley as a couple, and everything about Klaus. Apparently bluebird seduction is a crime?

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    Cold Open: Already downplaying Mueller. Okay, it's about Aunt Becky in jail. I liked her bit. And I liked Pete as Michael Avenetti (and they cut to him quickly for some reason), and I wasn't expecting Michael Keaton as Julian Assange AT ALL but man it works. Apparently Melissa was someone named 6IX9INE? Don't know who that is, but okay. Monologue: Emma Stone, of course, tests out how much of the audience is just here for BTS. A lot, apparently. But Emma is solid, and everyone loves her. I loved the half-assed Four Timers celebration. Honestly, we got lots of Kyle love in just these two sketches, probably more than in the past few episodes combined. Posters: Apparently Emma's character showed up before. I knew this sketch seemed familiar. That voice is great, I couldn't stop laughing at it. Fashion Coward: Oh my god this was amazing. Yeah, it's like, every clothing store (It's Just ann Taylor was the perfect button). "Far mirrors" "Pants for your legs," "ideal juror." So perfect. The View: The View sketch is back! Apparently the last time we had one was when Emma hosted in 2010?! And Whoopi is NOT played by Kenan?! Oh boy, they're finally tackling Meghan McCain. But it seems like the sketch ended before they truly could? Boo. I liked it enough, but man, could've been better. Yes, Jenny McCarthy actually thought the Pineapple on the Masked Singer was Barack Obama. Hobbies: Melissa gets a song! It was fun. Ladies' Room: This was weird, and considering how weird this show's gotten lately, that's saying something. I did not want this to end, though. This was the best kind of stupid. Also, I just found out that this song was real. Boy, does that put this sketch into context. Figured as much, this sketch written by the same person who wrote the Rain sketch for Donald Glover and that's when I learned about Oran "Juice" Jones. BTS: This is what passes for boy bands these days? Not my thing, I guess. WU: Yeah, everyone has Trump saying the opposite of whatever stupid shit he's lying about this week. Several times. Good to know that Trump jokes go over well for this audience. and yeah, this audience was rabid for BTS (and unsurprisingly not much for much else). Prince Harry Baby Shower: Wow, wasn't expecting this sketch to come back. Aidy as James Corden was perfect, and I liked William dressed as Freddie Mercury. Beck as Charles bursting in with "WHAT HAPPENED, AM I KING?!" was far and away the best part of the whole night. BTS 2: Okay, this song I can imagine why they have a big fanbase. I keep picturing Boyz 12 from American Dad. The Actress: I was typing "this is about a porno, isn't it?" just as Emma brought up that she was the wife in a gay porn video. This was so good, and she was just as wooden in her delivery in these kinds of things. Chalmers Reserve: Now this was a 5-to-1 sketch if there ever was one. Gotta love how the wine is made from hot dog water, and that it's brown. "We're going to hell for making this wine." This was an okay episode. We all knew everything that wasn't BTS was just gonna be filler, but it was fun filler. We return May 4th with Adam Sandler. Still can't believe he hasn't hosted yet.

    I'm near expecting the entire male cast to be in a BTS like band and they square off with each other.

    I love how Stan was enamored about Steve's "new friend" Barry. Totally him to forget he ever existed, despite showing up at his house every other week for 13 years. "Let's send in the old jingle and see if they notice!" I liked how Klaus raised the very plot point I was thinking about when I saw the jingle story, because that's where I thought it was gonna go. Klaus writing a Hillary Truther jingle, and Roger going full Phil Spector was definitely where this show goes, though. Of course Stan and Francine's relationship can only be healthy when they're facing death. "Was that Craig Robinson?" Yes, yes it was. And that was JK Simmons as Gene. Maybe he forgot to take his vitamin for a while?

    They're a metal band themed after Ned Flanders. They dress like him and sing songs about him.

    S09.E19: Long Time Listener, First Time Bob

    Neighbor: The Rods Must Be Drapey Exterminator: Four Non-Bugs Burger of The Day: The Devil's Avacado-Gate Burger, The Fleetwood Jack Burger (Served with sweet little fries pies, jack cheese) "Mom and her hot son like sweet potato fries!" I, for one, think they're terrible so I'm right there with Bob. And so not surprised that the Sweet Potato Pies also turned out terrible, and watching Linda and Teddy force themselves to eat them just seemed like karma. Linda yelling into the radio (and Teddy supporting her) just seemed like classic her. Yes, I loved the song about how regular fries are the best. Clem Clements was voiced by Nick Offerman, but seriously, he used the exact same voice as the guy who owned the bar next to Big Bob's and I thought it was the same character. I appreciate that Bob knows he probably won't get Clem's job back, but went through with his plan anyway. "Crying baby into sad trombone, are you Mozart?!"

    S30.E20: I'm Just A Girl Who Can't Say D'oh

    Title: Three headed bully dragon! Billboard: Springfield Isotopes: Already out of the playoffs Chalkboard: I Will Not write "Audit Please" on Homer's Tax Returns Couch Gag: "My Three Kids" spoofing the "My Three Sons" intro. Llewellyn Sinclair is back! Wait, twice in one season?! I enjoyed the Oklahoma he tried to put on. I liked the Chekhov's Gun book written by Sideshow Bob. I also liked all the headshots in the Penny Loafer. Letterman got a MUCH bigger picture than Leno did, and I appreciated the prominence of Stan Lee. "Show business is BASED on risks. Risks and comic books." So true, Krusty. Okay, Lisa is writing a Hamilton-esque musical about Jebediah Springfield and NOT bringing up anything about Hans Sprungfeld. Calling SO MUCH BULLSHIT ON THIS. Yeah, I was waiting for a reference to that to spring up, but it never came, You don't advertise "warts and all" and never mention the warts! But I still liked the musical even without any of that. Who knew Frink had such a heavenly singing voice? And I liked seeing John Lithgow as the bear. Homer's plot was cute, but didn't really go anywhere. And damn, a cameo by Okilly Dokilly at the end there.

    S44.E17: Kit Harington / Sara Bareilles

    I can say that I've seen most of the big moments by proxy. I'm too spoiled to appreciate it, really.

    S44.E17: Kit Harington / Sara Bareilles

    Cold Open: We start with Jason Sudeikis back as Biden! Yeah yeah, bringing in another guest star, but seriously, who else would play him? Beck? He could probably do it, but we'd all be wondering why they didn't bring in Jason. Sudeikis Biden energy is an energy that's been missing from this show, god I've missed this. Bringing in Leslie Jones to geek out over "Obama's Grandaddy" is the best part and yeah, that's why he's gonna pull pretty far ahead early. Sad but true. And unlike You Know Who, Biden LOVES all the memes and jokes about him. Monologue: I don't watch Game of Thrones, but I'm hyped. And yeah, love all the GOT jokes, and the cameos, especially Emilia Clarke. Pete as the Night King was so great. 2019 Nephew Pageant: This is one of the weirdest sketches I've seen in a while, and wow was this good. "Scared at Sports" is such a mood. I know that feel. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when someone pitched "Good at Lent." Kenan just declaring "THE BOY WINS" and have it be Kit Harrington again was amazing. Game of Thrones Spinoffs: Genius. How many of these spoofs have the writers been sitting on? And for how long? Ayra as Daria was so freaking great, as was Hodor's House (Pee-Wee's Playhouse spoofs are always welcome), and Marsika & Ice T in GoT: SVU. I'd watch those. EXECUTIVE PRODUCER DIRE WOLF was the best. Sinatra: Kit Harrington as Michael Jackson as Frank Sinatra. Oh my god. And they were the Jackson 5 cover band until a few weeks ago. And Leslie was just some stranger was a perfect capper. Who pitched this? I love it. Earth War 3: I liked this one. I really liked the look of it, too. Actually looked like a VR game. WU: Uncle Joe being the main focus this week is such a breath of fresh air. He may not be Jebediah Atkinson, but I loved the film critic character. He was weird, but he just got better as it went on. "Oh Colin, you still believe in time?" is the line of the night, you heard it here. It was so good to see Kenan's Charles Barkley again. I was watching that game, the real Barkley was LOSING IT. Yes, those weird news headlines Colin brought up were real. Jim Carrey's twitter beef with Mussolini's granddaughter, Elon Musk's Harambe Rap, and the chicken that got a wheelchair. Bachelorette Party: And now Kit Harrington doing burlesque, for the ladies. This man is fearless. And in comes Kate as a weird burlesque teacher to make it better. And Melissa being his sister was the perfect twist. Like, oh my god. Brexit: And now Sara Bareilles singing a Waitress song about Theresa May. Somehow I think the life she has in this spoof is better than her actual life. Well, wasn't expecting Theresa May to make out with Winston Churchill. Office Nerds: This was silly, but probably the weakest sketch so far. "Ye Olde Masturbation" was the best part, and that was some good slight of hand when they pulled out all the pictures. Colonoscopy: Leslie being the surgeon was great, the fingernails were the single best touch. You just know Leslie pitched this one. Yeah, an entire sketch where she gets to touch Kit Harrington. I know your game, Leslie. The twist being an ep of Undercover Boss was unexpected and a little sudden. But hey, we finally got a 5-to-1 sketch to play out in full. So this was a great one!

    We've been getting so much Tuttle lately. Now we know he's a dog race announcer. I really liked seeing Stan in that fancy racing outfit, drinking Brass Monkeys, and then becoming weird dog track people with Francine. Of COURSE Roger is one of the dogs. And makes out with Hayley. It's Roger, after all. We've come full circle. Also, one of Darlene's pups looked like Roger. I'm just gonna not think about that one. Steve's nude plot was fun, as was Klaus's. It sucks that he actually can't die.

    Season 17 Discussion

    I just love the idea of Chris Parnell being another talking baby with a deep voice. Cleveland and Joe got dusted. I should've seen that coming, but they were the obvious choices. Between that and Moana, they didn't waste any time with being owned by Disney now, did they? "To make any middle-aged woman laugh, call McDonald's 'Mickey D's'" Well, that's definitely true. I liked that Stewie's idea on catching people up on the past 25 years was explaining the Khardashian family tree. Which, of course, involved explaining the OJ trial and the Dancing Ito's (and what happened to the Late Night War). I thought that this was a pretty decent Brian/Stewie adventure. Gotta love whenever Brian acts like a dog, like all his rolling around in garbage.

    S30.E19: Girl's in the Band

    Title: Leprechaun fighting North Irish Leprechaun Chalkboard: "I am not a Grandmother" (shoutout to Nancy Cartwright, I assume) Couch Gag: Everyone is in black except for Homer. Billboard: Springfield: Come for Whacking Day, Stay for Snake Chowder! Heh, an episode featuring Mr. Largo? and they show his husband? Really interesting to see. I did like how they finally pointed out that NO ONE knows what exactly Milhouse is playing in the opening. Bringing in JK Simmons to reprise his Whiplash character just to make everyone play 80s tv theme songs was pretty genius. He was so good in this. Also, that was Dave Matthews as Lloyd the bartender a la The Shining. That was...odd. I liked Homer offering to pull a Breaking Bad by selling his complete series set, but Marge & Homer didn't listen to the commentaries yet. Also typical Homer when he realized that he was pulling all those double shifts for Lisa playing jazz, and not playing for the Utah Jazz. Gotta keep the status quo to have Lisa intentionally fail to make everyone happy. Sad, but seems steeped in truth, though. I liked Daws Butler Hall, yet another shout out to Nancy (she took VO lessons from him).

    S44.E16: Sandra Oh / Tame Impala

    Cold Open: Once again props to that makeup crew, I keep forgetting that it's Robert DeNiro as Mueller. It's been a long week, since this sham of a summary happened on SUNDAY. I liked seeing Aidy as William Barr. Monologue: Sandra Oh! They had to bring in other castmembers to liven her monologue up. I don't have high hopes for the rest of the show. I like her, though. Discover: And here's the "Us" spoof. I think I (and the audience) would've gotten more out of this had I actually seen the movie. Ego did a great job, though. And Kenan's bit was the only part that made me laugh, though. Empire: And here's a Jussie Smollett sketch. Meh. They could've done so much with this premise, but nothing really happened. He was wearing a MAGA hat, and that was never addressed, for one. "The killer left me a bag of clues?!" "You're still alive, Jussie." "I am the Gay Lee Daniels!" "Jussie, *I* am the Gay Lee Daniels!" The Duel: Now this was funny. Sandra was so good in this one. Is it wrong that I laughed every time she got shot? Jacked: So the entire sketch revolved around Sandra Oh as Trent's weird girlfriend instead of how he got jacked in the future? This was weird. Also, Alex and Mikey playing the same character was something that needed to happen way sooner than this. Putin: I don't know what the hell to make of this Putin sketch. So...the Mueller summary made Putin look weak? You'd think he'd be happy. Apparently that was Bowen Yang as Kim Jong Un. Maybe now they'll finally add an Asian cast member to the show? WU: Wow, "Toxic Optimism" describes us white people so perfectly. "If he's do dumb, how come he's president?" was a joke SNL told once back in the day, and not something the sitting president pretty much says to people. As great of a job Cecily is doing as Jeannie Pirro, I want even the fake version off my tv screen. The zebra joke was great, as was Aidy complaining about the one female space suit. "Only one gets to be Moon Queen!" Louise: Kate is great as weird, old women. "Doctor says I'm dying tomorrow, so...kiss." Kind of said that this was the best live sketch so far. Cheques: The art of dramatically writing out cheques is a lost one. I loved this one so much. Roots of Rock: The secret formula to a good sketch: Just let Kenan go all out while singing. Well, it's one way to bring back What Up With That, because I wouldn't have been surprised if the two characters were related. I would've loved it if Electric Shoes interrupted the second Tame Impala song. SAT II: So a sketch about moody students? I needed more of Kate & Aidy's characters in a longer sketch that isn't on at 12:55. This episode started pretty week, but it really picked up steam at update. But I still thought it was pretty underwhelming, even if Sandra Oh was giving it her all.

    I laughed so hard at everyone caring so much about the stick. It's amazing that Hayley is smarter than Steve despite being in Community College for 13 seasons. Loved Klaus invading Steve's subconscious. Starz just got Dad-ed. Full of almost good shows like "Black Sails," "Outlander," and other shows Roger made up. I had a feeling that a security system would eventually decide Stan is a threat because Stan is Stan. I liked this one, but it had two things I absolutely hate: people slicing their palms, and people damaging their teeth.

    Season 17 Discussion

    Ooh, meta episode! I really hope that if this ever makes it to DVD, there's a commentary on this episode. Gonna admit, I liked it this way better than if there was no commentary. The cast showing up at the end was the best. Am I the only one who DID get that Peter singing "Halfway Down The Stairs" was from the Muppet Show? I just liked how everyone bitches how it's not even a joke, just a flat reference (and yes, Peter sang the entire song)
  20. Neighbor: The Lids Are All Tight Storage Containers Exterminator: Dead'Er Done Burger(s) of The Day: The Ruth Tomater Ginsburger "Mom says it's egg thirty." "So we're having eggs?" "We're not." So weird to see Ron doing something outside of being a health inspector. Last week we saw Trev getting development, now Ron. "Who does the same show for thirty years?!" "Phantom of The Opera. Sorry." "Les Mis also ran forever." "Don't forget Cats!" "Yes! Many musicals!" There's also Bob's Burger's time slot neighbor, but you didn't hear it from me... The animation on the puppets was really spectacular.

    S30.E18: Bart vs Itchy & Scratchy

    Krusty Kon: "It's not weird for adults to be here!" I really liked Krusty Kon, especially the panel. Boy, have I been to dozens of panels just like it. Need a screenshot of all the female cartoon characters. Caught Betty Boop, Daria, The Powerpuff Girls and Louise Belcher. It's perfectly in character for the boys of Springfield (including Ralph!) to immediately hate the idea of an all girl Itchy & Scratchy, and for Bart to love it because, well, it's Itchy & Scratchy. Bossy Riot kind of reminded me of Jessica Lovejoy, but there's three of them. And more accepting of Bart. There was the inevitable betrayal, but I liked that, too. A glitter bomb that spoofed the opening of Saving Private Ryan was pretty hardcore, but funny. You know things have gotten weird when Milhouse is the Alpha of the boys. So much so that it rekindled Kirk & LuAnn's love life. I also caught the other Van Houtens on the picture above Kirk & LuAnn: Grandpa from "Flying Hellfish," Grandma from "Bart Sells His Soul," and Milhouse's cousin voiced by Clarice Van Houten. "We need a sorority, but for boys." Just about every boy character was in BRA at the end, right? Marge: "I don't know what to be liberal about anymore." Okay, that one HAD to be Megan's line. Hell, I really liked this one, and if there was something I didn't like, it was Lisa pronouncing gif with a J-sound. It's hard G or nothing.

    American Dad

    All the tiny Tuttles is what makes American Dad American Dad. Yeah, gotta love Roger switching to a girl the moment he revealed that he & Steve ran away to an all-girls school. I'll admit, I loved how this episode started to cram in as many 80s sitcom tropes as possible, especially when they reveal that this ep was a backdoor pilot for a spinoff (filmed in Vancouver!). Because, yeah, the only way Steve is a success is if HE was the main character and not Stan. Steve and Roger trying to kill their own plot armor and refusing storylines was pretty genius. Of course Stan has zero patience for Not!Punky Brewster...until she was great at basketball. Steve and Roger roomed with the only two lesbians in the whole school and they didn't notice it at all. Steve's certainly come a long way, I'll say that.
