This also applies to "The Blunder Years" (season 13).
Damn, I think you are even older. You've probably even watched Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and the Wonder Years....

It's pretty damn amusing that you can quote season and episodes of the Simpsons. I quit watching around season 5.

Mel Gibson did a remake of that movie? Where have I been?

I had to pull that up from other computer since work blocks it. I must say it is pure blasphemy to confuse Robin Hood, Men in Tights with The Princess Bride. The later being a pure masterpiece. I must say it is truly inconceivable that someone would confuse those two movies.

I believe the machine in the bottom of that "tree" needs to be used on a certain JF.

It was within the episode. Mel Gibson did the remake, it was screened in Springfield, and everyone loved it except Homer. Gibson thought that Homer was the only one who was being honest, since everyone else loved him too much to hurt him by telling the truth. So he brings in Homer for help with a re-write, which involved the filibuster turning into a machine-gunning of Congress.

Crazy Eddie. Which works if you're familiar with the Niven and Pournelle Novel "The Mote In God's Eye".

Well, to be slightly fair, they do both feature Cary Elwes starring as the male lead.

That said, we should not accept excuses. We're just going to have to find ourselves a new JACKETfan, that's all.

Confusing. That's definitely a brain "Twister."

Sonny, true love is the greatest thing in the world. Except for a nice MLT: a mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky, I love that. Except that's not what he said: he distinctly said "To Blave," and, as we all know, "to blave" means "to bluff."

Also, would we want to go post-apocalyptic? Or should it be "things that were more enjoyable than last season"?

I'm thinking something involving posters from horrible movies (Plan 9 from Outer Space, Inchon, Gigli, Battlefield Earth), promo shots from TV shows (Turn-On, My Mother the Car, Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?), box shots from video games (Custer's Revenge, E.T. for the Atari, Superman 64)....you get the idea.

The tagline can be something like "Still more enjoyable than last season".

Or maybe use the torture scene from "A Clockwork Orange", rotated against various moments from the 2011-12 season. Like so:

Medical Laboratory Technologists prefer the BLT, America's Got Talent should screen this place.

Priest = Eddie.

Meet The New Boss


For me this works two ways, expressing both our disgust at the lack if substantive change, and (when taken at face value) our hopes for new leadership.

Also, it brings to mind some serious guitar riffs!
