MovieSimpsons exemplifies why the Simpsons will always be superior to Family Guy. Movie references (any pop culture reference, really)* on The Simpsons are done in such a way that even if you don’t GET the reference you still get the humor. With Family Guy if you don’t get the reference you’re stuck watching a 3 minute riff on the talent show scene from Revenge of the Nerds wondering WTF you’re looking at. It’s as if the writers are going “DID YOU SEE THIS MOVIE??? REMEMBER IT? REMEMBER???”
*I’m speaking mostly about the “classic” Simpsons era, Seasons 1 - 10. Not even going to get into the crap that followed.
Lady Gaga’s Simpsons alter ego was born this way — that is, skinny, yellow, and wearing a tiara. By the way, there will be plenty more Gaga to gawk at: This is only one of 18 outfits that she’ll don in an upcoming episode, which airs May 20 on Fox.
This is heaven.
