Happy St. Patty's Day...The Simpsons to premiere episode in Ireland

The SimpsonsAs part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of The Simpsons, Fox is going to premiere an episode outside of the United States for the first time ever. The day of this occurrence is today, March 17th, St. Patrick's Day. The country of choice is Ireland and the episode of the show is, naturally, a special St. Patrick's Day-themed episode.

I'm reminded of that episode of South Park called "Simpsons Already Did It". There really aren't many firsts left for a series that has gone on for twenty years, but this would be one of the remaining ones. Will they be following it up with a special Passover episode that premieres in Israel on that holiday?

There are many who feel The Simpsons are past their prime, but I really think the only limits to this show are the imaginations of those who are responsible for it (and the lifespans of the voice actors). Bring on more!

Just watched it over here. Not a classic episode by any means but plenty of belly laughs and in-jokes for us locals. The yuppie Leprechauns with the bluetooth headsets was a lovely touch.

Something else to keep you in the mood on St. Patty's Day: A short history of shamrock-themed TV shows.
