'The Simpsons' season finale - 'The Ned-liest Catch'On the season finale of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX), Ned Flanders found love in the arms of Edna Krabappel after saving her life. An unikely pairing considering her background boozing and sleeping around with the men of Springfield.

Conversely, Ned told her, "I'm a little uncomfortable with premarital sex. But I think if we hold off for awhile, you'll find I'm well worth the wait."

Krabappel agreed to be patient on the romance side, but the pair agreed that kissing was all right. Where it gets fun is in determining what happens next.

All summer long, fans get to log into the show's official site and vote for whether or not "Nedna" will stay together. Then, in the Season 23 premiere this fall, we'll all find out the results. Do you want them to stay together?

Banksy Does 'The Simpsons': Street Artist Creates Title Sequence

Last night's 'Simpsons' (Sundays, 8 PM ET on FOX), episode marked yet another first for the long-running show: UK street artist Banksy created the title sequence.

'MoneyBART' features an Asian sweatshop, and according to 'The Guardian' newspaper, Banksy was inspired by the fact that much of the 'Simpsons' animation is done in Seoul, South Korea.

It's the first time an artist has been invited to storyboard part of the show, and Banksy said his ideas led to delays, disputes over broadcast standards and a threatened walk out by the animation department. "This is what you get when you outsource," joked executive producer Al Jean.

The minute-long opening sequence involves cute animals being used for their fur or exploited as sweatshop laborers. It opens with Banksy 's tag being sprayed across Springfield monuments, and then a masked Bart writing "I must not write all over the walls" over the walls of his schoolroom.

'The Simpsons' Season 22, Episode 3 Recap (VIDEO)

This was the last episode of 'The Simpsons' until their annual 'Treehouse of Horror' on Nov. 7, so if this doesn't satisfy your 'Simpsons' cravings until then, you're S.O.L. As far as episode quality goes, it was a fair episode with a cute ending. I'm a sucker for endings where the family resolves some sort of internal conflict.

Tonight's episode had Lisa taking over the managerial position of the Springfield Isotots, Bart's Little League team, in the interest of collecting extracurricular activities for getting into an Ivy League college. Hilarity did then ensue.

The voice of Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia made its first 'Simpsons' appearance since 'Homer At The Bat' in1992 (the plot of which also involved baseball). He was a player back then, rather than a manager. Eighteen years surely has to be a record for time between appearances (though it would be nice if Dustin Hoffman would decide to come back and break that record). The dialogue had a nice callback to the events of that particular show.

'The Simpsons' Season 22 Episode 2 Recap

['The Simpsons' - 'Loan-a Lisa']

The two main plots of tonight's episode focused on the same themes of money and status in contemporary society. We had Marge who was buying beyond her means in an effort to impress others -- essentially pretending to be rich -- and Lisa investing in Nelson's business, which then took off to the point where he was willing to abandon his education to actually become rich. To further hammer home the theme, Springfield was made to look a bit more like Los Angeles this time around.

Mark Zuckerberg certainly has gotten a lot of press lately what with that movie that's been doing so well along with his appearance on 'The Simpsons' (and a much-needed enormous donation to the school system of Newark, NJ). You'd think he was trying to compensate for something.
