Bart Finds Alien Love in His Avatar on 'Simpsons Treehouse of Horror' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 31st 2011 4:15AM
'The Simpsons' - 'Treehouse of Horror XXII'This year, 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) annual Halloween spook-tacular was filled with fresher-than-usual satire. 'Treehouse of Horror XXII' -- and doesn't that make you feel old? -- opened with a nod to Aron Ralston and the film '127 Hours,' and proceeded to mock 'Dexter,' 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' and 'Avatar.'

The 'Spider-Man' story was perhaps the most bizarre, as it featured a catatonic Homer Simpson ultimately fighting crime even though he couldn't move. But the accidents caused by that were a clear poke at the accident-prone musical.

I remember when the Treehouse of Horror was appointment TV

The Simpsons - Treehouse of Horror XXEven after I'd given up on watching The Simpsons every week many years back, I continued tuning into their annual "Treehouse of Horror" specials, the most recent of which aired Sunday. After a few more years of watching just that one episode each year, I eventually let it go as well. But I've been watching this 20th Anniversary Season of the show, and reviewing it for the site, so I settled in to see what we'd be tackling this year.

As always, the special is broken into three parts. This year's batch: a send-up of Alfred Hitchcock films, 28 Days Later, and Sweeney Todd. That sounded promising enough, and yet ...

Maybe I'm too old for the "Treehouse." Or maybe they just try and do too much. Or maybe, as was the case with all three of this year's segments, they have decent enough set-ups, but their endings are all stupid.

'Army Wives'
(Sun., 10PM, Lifetime) 2nd season finale
Thankfully, no one's getting blown up in this season ender, but there are major changes ahead for the residents of Fort Marshall.

First up, Betty's nephew (guest star Ivan Sergei) visits and has news for Roxy that's going to add stress to what's already been a trying season for Roxy and Trevor.

Meanwhile, Pamela begins to question her life choices -- namely marrying into the military; Roland has to help out with a former patient; and Claudia Joy and Michael also have to get used to a few adjustments at Casa Holden, but that doesn't mean they're going to be happy about all of them.

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XVII

by Adam Finley, posted Nov 5th 2006 9:21PM

simpsons(S18E04) I always try to give the Simpsons Halloween specials the benefit of the doubt, because obviously when they first decided to do one for each season, starting with "Treehouse of Horror I" in season two, they probably weren't thinking they might have to keep coming up with three new vignettes every year for almost two decades, with no clear sign of stopping anytime soon.

So I cut the series a little bit of slack when it comes to these Halloween episodes, because sometimes you just run out of scary things to spoof and you end up creating something like "You Gotta Know When to Golem," about a mystical Jewish creature who becomes Bart's unwitting slave. But even though this was the least of the three stories this year, it did have some funny moments. I loved how the family created a bride for the Golem out of Play-Doh, and how the Golem turned from a silent killing machine to a neurotic freak that won't shut up the moment he's allowed to speak.

Press Kits Unwrapped: The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror XVII

Press kit open

A note to the people who put together these press kits: if you want to woo me, fill the kit with lots and lots of candy. I don't care if it has anything to do with the television program you're promoting or not. I want lots of damn chocolate, and I want it now. As you can see in the picture above, this press kit for the upcoming "Treehouse of Horror" episode of The Simpsons was stuffed with mini candy bars, Blow Pops and peanuts, all of which I scarfed down fairly quickly, growling under my breath like a starving dog protecting his food bowl.

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XVII - an early look

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 25th 2006 3:02PM

simpsonsNo spoilers in this preview, Simpsons fans.

I'll have a few review when the episode airs on November 5, but here's a taste of what you can look forward to:

The first vignette, titled "Married to the Blob," spoofs the classic camp classic The Blob, this time with Homer becoming an ever-enlarging mass of man-blob who just can't stop himself from eating every person he comes across. As always, it takes Marge to finally talk some sense into Homer, with a little help from guest star Dr. Phil.

Create your own Treehouse of Horror

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 17th 2006 8:45PM
simpsonsSee, this is why it's so hard to get any work done. The official Simpsons Web site has an awesome video editor where you can piece together clips from the upcoming "Treehouse of Horror XVII" (November 5) to create your very own wacky/scary mish mash of Simpson-y goodness. I'm having enough fun just playing around with it, but if you're feeling competitive you can actually enter your creation in a contest for a chance to have it aired on FOX, or to win a trip to the 400th episode party. Other prizes include an autographed drawing from the episode courtesy Matt Groening, and a bunch of limited edition posters. I would enter my own creation, but I'm afraid it would blow everyone's mind. Or I'm just lazy.

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror V

(S06E06) homer simpsonWhen I first started covering the sixth season of The Simpsons for Retro Squad, some of you asked why I didn't cover one of the earlier "better" seasons. Well, there is a reason I chose this season instead of say, the fifth season (which includes one of my top five episodes, "Rosebud") but that reason no longer applies. What the heck am I talking about? Let's just say we had something cool planned, but it didn't pan out.

Nevertheless, this season had some great episodes, so I'm not at all sorry I chose to revisit them. Besides, if I hadn't picked this season I wouldn't be able to talk about possibly one of the best Halloween episodes ever. So if you'll take my bloody, severed hand, we'll get started:
