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

You’s a good Allen wrench

Dad Behavior

Billboard: Costington’s: Open Thanksgiving. Celebrate your holiday by ruining others’

I will watch all 600 episodes without sleep (There was a marathon of Simpsons episodes over Thanksgiving)

Couch gag: During the opening titles, the family end up dead in various accidents related to their usual segment. Bart sees the family gone, takes their pictures off the walls, places them on the couch and realises he finally gets the remote to himself.

Guest Voices:
Matt Leinart as himself

Director: Steven Dean Moore

Synopsis: Homer discovers a new app which outsources all his responsibilities.

Discussion: OK, so this episode isn’t too bad. It’s from newly credited writer Ryan Koh who has taken some elements from classic episodes and reworked them into a modern narrative.

Here we see Homer outsourcing his parenting duties via an app called ChoreMonkey, something similar to AirTasker. It’s a classic Bart/Homer bonding episode mixed with technology, with passable results.

There are weird subplots involving Abe becoming a father again, Milhouse & Homer bonding, Bart and Kirk bonding, Marge and… well, everyone.

There are also some weird “jokes” that don’t really gel, but altogether it’s definitely not the worst episode ever, or even of this season.
