The Simpsons

If losing Home & Away did in Mediaworks what will losing the Simpsons do?

Mediaworks suffered hugely by losing Home & Away which was scheduled before the news.

Now they have lost The Simpsons and Family Guy.

The Simpsons and Family Guy are on the move, with TVNZ announcing the popular animated series will switch channels to TV2 next year.

The news comes as TVNZ announces another major coup – securing the rights to the highly anticipated new reboot of The X-Files, which is tipped to be one of the biggest television events of 2016. ? Read more »


Okilly Dokilly


Peter Goodfellow could grow his moustache back and join these guys…a group of Americans who have created a Ned Flander’s themed thrash metal band called Okilly Dokilly:

Something very strange and peculiar has happened in America, something other than Donald Trump. Five men, none of which are Donald Trump,?have birthed a concept?thrash metal band based entirely on The Simpsons’ sexiest and most god-fearing character: Ned Flanders. Their name? Okilly Dokilly, obviously, with heavy emphasis on “kill” and “kill.”

The band is only a couple of months old and have yet to play their first show, but their?Facebook page?describes them as?”the world’s only Nedal band” with most of their songs?made up of?direct Ned quotes (if you check their?Bandcamp?track info, you’ll find which?season and episode they’re each pulled from). ?

The Simpsons Already Did It

You can’t go for 10+ seasons and not cover most of the possible plot lines available to you. ?Which is why, The Simpsons frequently have snippets that appear to be prophetic or apply to current situations.

Of course, they take advantage of archetypes.

One of them being a corrupt, troughing, shameless mayor…

No need for charter schools here right?

Since it seems to annoy Peter Aranyi that I post Harlem Shake videos (one, to date, Peter. ?But happy to make your rant more relevant), here’s another one.

MSM catching up on monorail sledge

Tv3 is the first to cotton on to Gerry’s masterful monorail sledge:

Minister of Transport Gerry Brownlee in Parliament yesterday compared Auckland’s plan for a city rail link to the infamous monorail episode of?The Simpsons.

In response to questions from Labour MP Phil Twyford on the impact of the city’s growing traffic woes, at first Mr Brownlee disputed the economic benefits of the proposed rail link, and questioned the impact it would have on congestion.

But towards the end of his answer, Mr Brownlee slipped in a reference to the classic Simpsons episode?Marge vs the Monorail.

“I would consider hiring Lyle Lanley and associates to do a scoping study for us on the city rail link,” he said.

“I know that they’ve done some very good work on some of the projects in Brockway, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook, and if they think this stacks up, we’ll give it some consideration further.”

In the?Simpsons?episode Lanley is revealed to be a conman, building a cheap and nasty monorail which begins to fall apart on its maiden trip.
