The Simpsons - "Specs and the City" - Talkback [1/26]
Broadcast Order: Season 25, Episode 11
Production Order: Season 25, Episode 6
Writers: Brian Kelley
A new episode airs tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern. Here's the synopsis:
Homer uses high-tech eyeglasses given by Mr. Burns to spy on Marge and learns that she is seeing a marriage counselor.
It looks like they reused the same gag, and some animation, from a Channel 4 (the British channel) ident they did a few years back.
This episode was...alright. Homer's plot started off well but had an underwhelming conclusion and Bart's was just outright boring. It felt like squandered potential more than anything.
On another note, has anyone else noticed the show's format has been altered a bit? Whereas in recent years The Simpsons had relied on four acts per episode, the recent episodes have had the plot strictly used in the first three acts, followed by the fourth act using a short gag before the credits roll.
I sure wish I had my own pair of GOOGLE GLASSES!
