Dang, I was gonna say that they forgot Stormtrooper #16, but J_M_G kinda beat me to it. No Ewok deaths honored, though?Did anyone else catch the end of last night's episode...Dedicated to all the guys that died in Star Wars movies. Priceless!
Vader: "Your powers are weak, old man... who's only 10-some years older than I am... and I'm only 39 or so."Yeah, I caught all the age things. Homer, MArge, Barney, Moe, Lenny, Carl and Frink and the Cat Lady are all the same age. I thought the Cat Lady was at least 60.
LOTR, specifically The Two Towers.a possible Bridge to Terabithia reference, or LOTR, or TPM.
Not the first time though.a Flintsones sound effect.
It's actually the earrings and hair shape.the true difference between Patty and Selma (a hair pin?).
I cringed at the Lord of the Rings reference at the end. It's like they're ripping off Family Guy now, with the random UPS guys riding on dragons.
I totally agree, that dragon was so out of place here even for a late-season Simpsons episode, but totally something that would have been on Family Guy. I posted somewhere around here recently that I felt that was one of The Simpsons' failings lately how the writers are trying to go a more Family Guy route no matter how bad the fit. And they're indeed a VERY bad fit.They've been ripping off Family Guy for about five years now. They bash the show, saying it's borderline plaigiarism of The Simpsons (though the only similarity is that they're both animated shows about families with a fat guy). But they turn around and do gags that would work perfectly well on FG (or, at worst, be forgotten in a long string of rapid-fire slapstick), but are totally in opposition to the type of humor from Simpsons history.
And here I thought those writers should just be fired altogether.The writers of The Simpsons need to look back at what made the show great, not at the show that comes on half an hour later and that they're jealous of.
