SSR #17: “Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish”

Introduction:
I have no intention of starting a discussion on politics here, but I do hope all of you, American citizens, went out to vote this week. After all, you don’t want a person like Mr. Burns in charge, do you? So, last week we had a very appropriate episode to celebrate the Halloween holiday. This week, we have another episode that’s very appropriate, time-wise, to what the US is currently going through with the mid-term elections going on. It’s interesting how starting Season 2 so late ended up being thematically appropriate to the current schedule of events huh? It’s almost like I planned it that way (I really didn’t, don’t give me that much credit).

SSR #15: “Simpson and Delilah”

Introduction:
We’ve all been quite accustomed to Homer Simpson’s hairstyle…an extremely bald head with two single hairs on top and a continuous “M” strand around the back (mainly to signify creator Matt Groening’s signature with Homer’s G-shaped ears). However, Season 2 decided to experiment very early on with an episode that gave Homer a full head of hair; an experiment that led to some very interesting results for the animated father-figure we all know and love. Today we will be taking a look at “Simpson and Delilah!”
