I watch, and blog, and watch and blog and watch. It's the Simpsons every day!

A Tree Grows in Springfield

Billboard: Snake wearing a Santa hat with the caption, This is not Santa, do not let him in

20 more shoplifting days until Christmas

Couch gag: Homer, wearing a hockey mask, threatens the family but it turns out to be the cover of ‘Tales from the Couch’ magazine.

Director: Timothy Bailey

Synopsis: Having a bad life, Homer wins a MyPad but when it breaks, he sinks into despair until a message in his tree renews his faith.

Discussion: I’ll keep this short. Yet anotherĀ sucky ep from The Simpsons which seems to be in a downward spiral lasting all this season so far (with the exception of the excellent Halloween episode).

Homer is depressed (apparently, he doesn’t seem depressed, not like Lisa when she’s sad) and wins a MyPad. Eleven minutes later, the episode’s point presents itself: there’s a message written on Homer’s tree which seems to be a miracle.

Gone are the days when the Simpsons believed in miracles. Homer doesn’t turn religious, charge admission prices or worship the tree. He wants to spread the message of Hope, but doesn’t actually seem to do anything with this message himself. The message turns out to be written by Homer when he’s sleepwalking anyway.

We finish with a short called Logorama in which Malibu Stacy is kidnapped by Funzo and it’s up to a Happy Little Elf to rescue her and fall in love.

The entire episode sucked. There was no storyline, the point took far to long to get to, and the short at the end was the worst one yet.
