Posting this here, too:

This happened during the live Q&A segment of last night's new episode of The Simpsons:

That live episode was bizarre. But I suppose, at very least, it's an interesting experiment similar to stuff they did in their classic years like when Homer visited a CGI world in "Treehouse of Horror VI".

The finale where they just remade "Marge Goes to Jail" was more bizarre. They didn't even acknowledge that Marge has already been to jail and why on Earth would they opt to simply remake that episode when they haven't done "Homer Goes to Jail" or "Bart Goes to Juvie" or even "Lisa Goes to Juvie" yet? I suppose the answer is because they wanted to reference Orange Is the New Black, but even then, I didn't see any actual references to that show beyond the episode's title.

Yeah, I caught the finale, which was actually the only episode I've seen this season and I barely remember anything from it

They have definitely done "Bart Goes To Juvie". You just forgot because it was a terrible episode with a pointless guest star.

Yeah, I remember that one. I think it was season eighteen or nineteen

Y'all are talking about "The Wandering Juvie," which is from season 15. I actually quite like season 15--I know I've said elsewhere that it's probably the last half-decent season of the show--and I remember being quite fond of that particular episode when it first aired, but Josh is right that the guest star du jour (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is really bland; however, the episode does also feature Charles Napier, who is awesome, so maybe it balances out. Though "The Wandering Juvie" is also a Bart Gets a New Love Interest episode, a genre of episode I find particularly loathsome (with the exception of "Bart's Girlfriend"), so maybe Josh is in fact right that it is crap: in any event, it's not the best thing that particular season has to offer.

And speaking of season 15, they also did a Homer Goes to Jail episode that year, if you count "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner" (also a meh-ish outing). And, hell, if you want to get technical--which, I mean, who doesn't?--"One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish" is the original Family Member Goes to Jail episode, what with Homer needing to be bailed out by Barney's usually-unacceptable rusty money.

I mean, I didn't see this apparently lousy rehash of "Marge in Chains," so I can't speak to that episode specifically--I just figured this was a good opportunity to be all pedantic about Simpsons miscellany, which I need to do once in a while to maintain my dorky street cred. wink

They've also done a "Homer goes to prison" episode before, too (not to mention the multiple times he's been jailed/arrested/detained in the series and it hasn't been the primary narrative).

Also, the rest of this season was pretty mediocre overall.

Are we forgetting "A Streetcar Named Marge?" tongue

I can't believe that this show is still going, I really can't. If someone told me when I joined Peel in 2001 that in 2016 The Simpsons is still going and that I'd be posting in a thread on Peel about that fact I'd have thought they were totally mad.

I never watched the show back in the day, but I find myself watching 1-2 episodes per week, now.  Mostly when the older ones are shown.
