Eh, it had a lot of potential, but the plot was waaaayy too rushed for my liking. Too many ideas to explore in such little time.

I disagree. Although I have hated all of the clips we have seen so far, this trailer renews my faith in the movie. I'm pretty damn hyped up about this movie now actually! Bart skateboarding again is awesome, and naked is good too because he's a bad boy again like how he was originally. We have evil Mr Burns, not stupid decrepid senile Burns. A good portion of Flanders, always good. All of those one-shot characters have been brought back too. Even Gabbo is back (I know he's not one-shot, but rarely used all the same...)

My biggest problem with The Simpsons Movie is what the fuck are Green Day doing in it!? I mean jeez!...

I completely agree with what you're saying, the only trailer I have seen before this was the one with Homer sitting on the couch which wasn't showing any good signs for the movie  smile, so this is the first time I've seen a trailer which actually shows content from the actual movie and I really can't wait to see it now!  big grin

You know...that trailer was okay. It wasn't that good, but it wasn't terrible.

And it's funny to hear you guys say you're glad that they're going to shove every single character that's ever been in the show in the movie for perhaps one stupid punchline just for the sake of fandom...
I still remain almost certain that the movie will have a terrible plot, lots of the show's cliches (done in an unfunny way, rather than a well-done satirical way), and lots of stupid craziness.
The only reason I liked the trailer is because it shows that there will be at least SOME good/okay jokes in it.

The trailers haven't told me anything about the plot, which makes me happy since I like going to a movie without knowing what to expect. I want to go see the Simpsons Movie without knowing what happens so it'll be a totally surprising experience for me.

As for the last episode, it was very good. The last two episodes have been better than episodes of the recent past.

I've cumbled together that the plot will be something like Bart is being usually mischevious riding his skateboard naked etc and then certain events happen to make him go with the ritious path of being a Flanders, while Homer is being hunted down due to something he has done relating to Barts mischivious ways, possibly... This then leads to world turmoil!  tongue

I'm happy to see Mr.Burns bathe in gold. In The Simpsons Season 9 Box Set at the beginning of the first disce there's a storyboard animation of Homer with pig shit, do you think the townfolk are mad at him for poisoning the drinking water with feces?

well....duh!

The Simpsons will also move to the Antarctica and the poisoning of the water is so bad that the US and/or other places will think it's terrorism.

Or the pig crap could do something to the power plant and Burns wants the town mad at homer for doing it.

Or it could be just a bunch of short stories.

Just a predictions.

There is an argument about this on No Homers Club board. Their is your side, and then the majority who think that a Simpsons episode takes much longer to produce than a South Park ep and therefore which was first from conception is impossible to determine...

the new episode was ok.  I have to agree with Gopher though, and even if it cant be determined whether south park or the simpsons came up with the original idea, south park's was still better.

A story revolving a fantasy RPG game, after the SP episode, there was an American Dad episode with similar elements and then the Simpsons did it, I guess it's just one of those things every one decided to take advantage of

24 Minutes/You Kent Always Get What You Want

24 Minutes First off the lighting in the 24 Minutes segment was amazing annd it really contributed to the atmosphere. The whole segment was pretty original but some of the gags were not so good.

B-

You Kent Always Get What You Want

I was expecting to for this to be one of those episodes with a plot that was used 15 times (which it was) but it was different. The gags in this segment were alot better than 24 Minutes (except the YouTube joke and the Ludacris cameo, they were cringe worthy)
B+

Overall the 24 Minutes segment had the most original plot but You Kent Always Get What You Want had the better gags.

I thought "24 Minutes" was amazing.  The animation was beautiful, the story was interesting, everyone for the most part was (delightfully) in character, and good Lord was it good to see Bart up to his old hijinks again.  The Jack Bauer cameo was better than I thought it would be, and the ending made me laugh ("It's ok.  That was Shelbyville." ).  My favorite episode of the season by far, and possibly my favorite episode since season 10.

"Kent" was OK, but the pacing felt very disjointed.  They dedicated too much time to the denist's office and not enough time to what was supposedly the A plot.  I enjoyed the ending here, too, but I saw it coming from a mile away.

The opening Tracy Ullman short was a very nice touch, IMO.  I'm glad they chose it over a couch gag.

24 minutes was a very well done episode and actually quite funny in some points. so was the kent one which had me actually laughing out loud at some points( homer getting his teeth drilled was very funny to me), and the ending was pretty clever seein that the simpsons later attempts at political humor have felt a bit heavy handed. all in all two good episodes

I have no clue what Kent supposedly said, but the curse Skinner told Bart was "beach ball;" Bart uses it later in the episode when he realizes that Jimbo and the other bullies have left the house ("Son of a beach ball!" ).

ETA: Er, maybe it was a different word and I heard it wrong.  "Beach ball" is already a noun....   confused

No, that was definitely a completely unrelated joke...that would make no sense if that was the word.
I'm not positive if the swear he supposedly told him was actually supposed to be established or not. I'm sure the writers had something in mind, but I'm pretty sure you couldn't hear anything distinguishable when he whispered to Bart. Not as sure as I am with the Kent one, though.

No, I'm pretty positive you can't. All you hear is jibberish grumbling that sounds like some sort of curse, but doesn't actually resemble any real word or words, at least not intentionally. I'm almost certain it wasn't supposed to imply a real word at all. It was just a gag that it was "the worst curse word imaginable" (or whatever Marge's exact quote was) but we didn't hear it or ever find out what it was. It's probably either no real word at all, or a bunch of curse words melded together (it sounded like a long grumbling).If it was supposed to be a real curse, though, based on the length I'd have to guess mother f*cker (even though, in my opinion, it seems like the most taboo word to use in public these days is c*nt, heh).

Anyway, I was very impressed by both episodes. I can't remember the last time since the end of Season 15 that I actually laughed out loud at more than about 2 jokes in a new episode of the Simpsons, and I did that for many more than 2 jokes in each episode (especially the Shelbyville line that was mentioned at the end of 24 Minutes).
24 Minutes was a much more creative episode than the second, and for me had a few more laughs, but it also happened to have a LOT more embarrassing cringeworthy stuff than the second. Because of that I liked You Kent Always Get What You Want better in terms of quality. It had a lot of funny jokes for me as well. I also enjoyed the Tracey Ullman short (was that the first one that ever aired?) that was mentioned, and as was said, it was a nice touch. And I enjoyed the political stuff at the end.
Actually, to be honest, in my opinion that would have made about as good a SERIES finale as fans could hope for at this point in the game. Sure, it didn't give too much of an emotional punch which would be nice, but we haven't seen a good emotional episode at all for a VERY long time. Plus, what better way to go out than to take a big swipe at FOX...
But oh well. If we're gonna keep going, at least we'll break all those records, I suppose.

Just a few more weeks and they get The Simpsons Movie. So what date is the Movie out in the USA? I think it is out in the UK 26/27th July.

Also I watched two episodes, which I find really good. The one where Bart almost marries this knocked up teenage girl and the one where they did a spoof from 24. The 24 episode was the best.

It's getting a simultaneous international release - July 27 in the US and the 26th/27th everywhere else depending on timezones (it'll be the 26th in Australia and the UK).
