'The Simpsons' Meet 'Avatar' (VIDEO)

'The Simpsons' Meet 'Avatar'The Simpsons are television's favorite yellow-hued dysfunctional family. But what if, instead of being yellow, 'The Simpsons' turned a bit ... blue? On the new episode (Sun., 8PM ET on Fox), the show takes its now-familiar "couch gag" to unfamiliar territory: The land of the Na'vi.

After entering an "avatar machine," the Simpson family become blue-skinned "avatars" of themselves -- just like in that movie ... Um, now what's that movie called again? It's on the tip of our tongues. Oh, well. ... We'll think of it in a second.

At any rate, to return to their "homeland" (i.e., their familiar TV/living room set-up), Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge and Maggie must brave the dangers of the strange new land. One of them must master a flying couch, and "connect" with it to get a ride back "home."

It's all good fun. And hopefully, unlike that movie 'Avatar' (that's what it's called!), the whole thing didn't cost $300 million to make. Although animation costs are rising these days, so you never know.

My family simply can't watch the simpsons...they're not funny and they have nothing useful to say!!! The dialogue is for simpletons. It's like they're talking to little kids. Family Guy is the funniest program on TV....it's totally irreverent and also somehow so sweet.

The last two episodes of The Simpsons have been awful. The one with the Flight of the Concords guys was pretty good - I'm not sure what's going on.

As for Avatar - they are still flying on those dragon things? Time to get up and go to the bathroom and get some popcorn and maybe the movie will have gone on to something else.
