well, /co/? one more episode with laura in?
this episode would be a good swan song for me
It's too late. Any classic character they bring back will be bastardized for a cheap joke or a shell of what made them memorable.
Case in point.
What the fuck is this? Did they actually just throw him in for a second and then just forget about it?
I don't know who the hell they made this joke for. The original episode was so long ago that newcomers to the show wouldn't get it, and people that would get it either stopped watching years ago or would be disgusted that they'd reduce such a poignant episode to a cheap joke. I think it's an example of the writers just not giving a fuck.
Yeah they really did.
Marge called up to Lisa that her vegetables were getting cold and that "someone who loves you" was adding hot butter to them. Cut to Bergstrom and Marge telling him she'd tell Lisa he stopped by.
I wonder if Laura would have the edge.
the writers just want to be edgy and unusual and hip and dramatic and clever. the most recent episode, the bizarre musical about bart getting horses laid, shows that clearly
they have talent as writers, it's just not comedy talent. at all.
anyway laura powers was hot and awesome. we need more girls like that i say! more! not just wendy
Imagine if they brought back Leon Kompowsky as a homeless impersonator in Hollywood telling them things have been tough since about five years ago.
Or if they put Karl randomly in a gay club in a mesh t-shirt and raver gear just because he's gay.
That's what this was like.
I wanna see a Royal Rumble with all Bart's Ex-girlfriends.
it's not like old simpsons never did this
>what happened to mindy simmons?
>she got real drunk and stopped coming to work
>drunken strung-out lurleen voiced by doris grau
the difference is, and it's the same with everything else people complain about latter-day simpsons doing (celebrity guests, wackiness, etc), that it was FUNNY back then. and it's NOT funny now. if it was, you should shut up.. but it's not. but you should still shut up about WHAT they're doing and focus on how it's not funny.
> Based Karl
good to see the VA takes after the character he plays
Clearly they made it for themselves and long-termers who've stuck with the show.
Just because you don't fall into either group doesn't make it a bad joke - it's actually kind of funny, if awkwardly timed in terms of the season they used it in. All it means is that you've moved on.
Remember that, anon? When you used to be able to accept that you'd moved on?
