That's Ricky Gervais. "Ricky Garvis," as you spell it, isn't anyone. And most people have heard of him and The Office, that explanation wasn't at all necessary.

Well, the movie certainly took me off guard. I figure it'd be a DVD release, but apparently, I'm a moron, because it's hitting theaters in 2007. Yup, the trailor starts off with the big S Superman has on his chest, but it's really Homer in a Superman shirt watching TV in that and underpants.

That's true to an extent, but I think you misinterpreted it. The trailer DID premiere during Ice Age 2, but that doesn't mean it's being shown at every screening of the movie or anything.

Incase you haven't noticed, Yardstick2006's opinion doesn't count to anyone in this thread. My point was that it's just really sad that you've been registered here almost 6 years now, and yet your typing doesn't appear to have gotten any better at all in that time. Is it really THAT hard to proof-read, or at least edit your post? Most of PEEL hates you, and don't think that I've forgiven you at all for killing the Scarecrow poll.

Beamer, you don't have anything better to bitch about than Juliet's typing?  C'mon, I make typos all the time - it give my missives character.

Although I don't know anything about your precious 'Scarecrow' poll, if you haven't forgiven her for 'killing it', may I suggest the following:

A) Get a life.

B) Have your doctor increase your medication.

C) Go out and get laid sometime (soon).

Granted, I know that Juliet has some sort of negative history with some of you older PEEL'ers, your comment to her was outrageous, out of line and make you look like a complete asshole.  If her message offended you because you didn't like the spelling or grammar, you could have mentioned in a lot nicer/less assholish way. 

This wouldn't bother me if it were in one of the 'Off-Topic' areas like the 'Rant' thread.

Ragedump, dude.  Ragedump.

Now, to keep this on-toopic - I haven't watched The Simpsons in at least 10 years. 

I bet the movie sucks.

More Futurama!

Word!

A) There's a big difference between the occassional typo and the way Juliet types. There's no flow to it, the grammar is virtually non-existant at times, she'll leave out entire words and replace others with entirely different ones. Does it really take that much time to proof-read your post?

B) Stay out of other people's business for once, please. Especially when it's in threads you don't even regularly post in. That's just interfering for the sake of interfering.

C) As much as I respect you, you're HOW old and posting on a Futurama forum? Kinda contradicts the "get a life" argument.

D) Remember when this thread used to be about The Simpsons?

Anyway, back on topic now, The Wettest Stories Ever Told sounds like an awful episode. I've never been a big fan of the "three stories in one episode" episodes (excluding Treehouse of Horrors, of course, purely because they're a staple of the show), and after just doing a three-story Christmas episode a few months ago, I really didn't expect them to do another three-story episode in the same season. Homer's storyline sounds like it's got potential for laughs, though. We'll see...

I see something that's irregular, I speak out.  I scan all the threads, and occasionally post in all of them.  I feel that you could have said your piece without being an ass.

Actually, I do have a life - unfortunately part of it's sitting in my house when the nurses aides aren't available to sit with my wife.  Y'see, I refuse to put her in a nursing home because she wants to die in her own bed.  So, I kill time by surfing the boards while she sleeps.  Believe me, I would much rather be doing several other things - most of which are either immoral or illegal.

And I really don't care if you (or anybody) respects me - but I have several e-mails from people cheering me on for standing up to certain people who post on this board.

These kinds of posts are far more annoying than what Beamer posted.  I have nothing against Juliet, but I can understand his frustration.  And Yardstick doesn't help anyone's credibility, being that he's a troll who was banned from the No Homers Club and comes here to be annoying now instead.

It's pretty bad....one of the worst episodes in a while, IMO.  It just couldn't have had much more than maybe ten small chuckles in it.  It isn't offensively terrible, but it just isn't funny and feels incredibly dull and boring.  Those non-THOH trilogies just seem to get worse really.  That said, it's one of the few episodes this season I would give a truly bad grade to.

I'm standing up for a brilliant joke here, and with the amount of people who nominated and voted for him, I beg to differ that "nobody cares." The idea of a dead account registered in 2003 winning Poster of the Month in 2005 made people laugh... But it was people like Juliet (and I single her out as she started the replacement thread) who couldn't take a joke. And who takes a meaningless online poll seriously, anyway?

As for the thread going off-topic, I'll admit I was the one who drove it off-topic that time (though it could've easily been put back with one post - but as usual, Yardstick added more fuel to the fire with it), though I was referring to the thread in general. It's been swerving on and off topic for 3 or 4 pages now, and it's usually Yardstick who's responsible for it.

DotheBartman - What, it's aired already? Eep, I'm really out of the loop now... the last new episode I saw was Million Dollar Abie. How far behind am I?   eek

Yeah, just this past Sunday.  It doesn't seem to be a very popular episode so far....though I disliked it more than a lot of other people I should say, partially because I'm personally just so sick of these trilogy episodes.  They're all just kind of the same episode to me.

You're only a couple episodes behind though.  I don't know if they air them totally in order where you are, but the only one between "Wettest" and "Abie" was "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bangalore".  So you've got two to catch up on.

Oh, I can't be bothered waiting for them to air down here. We're only up to The Italian Bob (airing tonight) on Australian tv... but, a couple of weeks ago, my computer was moved into my room and I was over a week without the internet, so I lost a lot of time to... uhhh, load stuff down. And, given that South Park's currenly on its airing period at the moment, that always has priority (even though Seasons 9 and 10 of SP have been fairly average for the most part, I still need to be as up-to-date as possible, since I run a small fan community for the show, and frequent most SP sites). Good to hear I'm not too far behind on The Simpsons, though.    smile

As for them airing in order, we usually get them in the same order as you, but we can't seem to go one season without Channel 10 holding an episode or two over for a ridiculous amount of time without any given reason... in Season 15, it was Smart and Smarter, last year it was Treehouse of Horror XV and There's Something About Marrying. If you thought television executives were smarter in other countries, think again.    tongue

Agreed with the "They're all just kind of the same episode to me" thing. The only standout trilogy episodes are The Simpsons Spinoff Showcase (gloriously awful  love ) and Trilogy of Error, if you can even count the latter one as three stories... I don't. Episodes like Tales from the Public Domain, Simpsons Bible Stories and Margical History Tour all just sort of blend together for me. I frequently forget which story's from which episode... They're not quite as bad as a clip show, but still, certainly not something I'd want to see every season, let alone seeing 2 in one season.

On a side note, have any Australian fans been able to find a NON-Marge head edition of the Season 7 box-set? I was told both versions were out, but I've only been able to find that awful one...

I saw the non-awful one in JB a few weeks back.

The Italian Bob. It had good write ups in the paper, so I made a point of watching it.

Now, I don't mind watching new Simpsons at all, but urgh. What the hell happened to the plot?

It was just one huge anticlimax. Even though we all know The Simpsons will always live, there was really no feeling of danger at all - what, Sideshow Bob's family slowly approach them with knives on stage, don't even get close to the Simpsons and then they're suddenly rescued? The plot had so much potential, and it ended so abruptly. Also, somebody needs to tell the writers that 90% of the "Simpsons go to another country" jokes are incredibly forced and unfunny.

Thanks for the JB Hi-fi tip though, I'll have to go check out mine sometime next month.   smile

EDIT: Huh, that's weird. According to this, the normal edition of Season 7 only just came out today... Crazy JB, always stocking everything early. Gotta love 'em.  big grin

Yeah, "Italian Bob" wasn't very good either...when it first aired here I said that it felt almost like fanfiction to me.  As much as I love Sideshow Bob (one of my favorite characters), I think they should probably retire him for good after that one.  If they do another episode with him and he has his new family in tow....it just won't turn out well.

The sweeps episodes have all been announced now.  The second to last episode ("The Monkey Suit", about the school being forced to teach creationism) sounds like it could be really good if done right.  The season finale however...well, here's the press release:

 
Quote
Lisa finds out what it's like to be a part of the "boys' club" in the "Girls Just Want to Have Sums" episode OF THE SIMPSONS Sunday, April 30 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), the first of four all-new May Sweeps installments. Springfield is in an uproar after Principal Skinner makes a sexist comment at the end of an Itchy and Scratchy musical. He's soon replaced by Melanie Upfoot (guest voice Frances McDormand), a women's educational expert, who decides to divide the school into two: one for boys and one for girls. Frustrated that she isn't learning anything at the girls' school, studious Lisa decides to dress up as a boy to get a better education.

After a spring-cleaning frenzy and inhaling too many fumes, Marge suffers from retrograde amnesia in the all-new "Regarding Margie" episode of THE SIMPSONS Sunday, May 7 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). In an effort to bring back her memory, Homer takes Marge around town to re-familiarize her with her surroundings. She still has no recollection of who Homer is and puts herself back on the singles market. Will Marge ever remember her beloved Homey?

Larry Hagman and Melanie Griffith guest-voice in "The Monkey Suit" episode of THE SIMPSONS Sunday, May 14 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). After visiting an evolution exhibit narrated by guest voice Griffith, Flanders pushes Mayor Quimby to appoint Reverend Lovejoy as a "Mortality Czar" in charge of spreading the theory of creationism. Darwin's theories are quickly outlawed, and Lisa finds herself as the only supporter of the scientific theory. After holding secret evolution classes, Lisa is arrested and retains Southern lawyer Wallace Brady (guest voice Hagman) to help defend her beliefs in front of a judge. While Flanders is on the stand in court, Homer's antics cause him to crack under pressure and he calls Homer an ape, which leads the judge to believe Homer resembles the missing link putting a monkey wrench in the prosecutors' case.

In the 17th season finale of THE SIMPSONS Sunday, May 21 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), entitled "Homer and Marge Turn a Couple Play," Mandy Moore and Stacy Keach guest-voice. After a passionate kiss between Marge and Homer airs on the Isotope Jumbotron, struggling second baseman Buck Mitchell turns to the couple for marital advice. The Simpsons are able to get Buck and his sexy singing wife, Fiona (guest voice Moore), on track, and the Isotopes' season turns for the better. Things seem to be coming up aces for the Simpsons until Buck catches Homer giving Fiona a post-show neck massage, which results in both couples separating.

Show of hands how many people actually wanted to see another "Homer and Marge nearly split" episode ever, ever again.....

That last one sounds horrible. Another one about Homer and Marge's marriage on the rocks after a simple misunderstanding? Come on! The others sound good though, even if Regarding Margie sounds way too similar to an American Dad episode, Francine's Flashback. Looking forward to The Monkey suit, though. Take that, creationism!  tongue
