Episode 29 â€“ The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Retrospective (1990 – 2017)
The Simpsons Treehouse of HorrorÂ is has been an annual staple for America’s longest-running sitcom since it’s second season. Starting off with segments that adapt Edgar Allen Poe or parodyÂ Amityville Horror,Â The SimpsonsÂ certainly has changed in the intervening years. The segments have grown more gruesome, the parodies more modern and the jokes… few and far between? I know. Someone sayingÂ The SimpsonsÂ has declined in quality on the internet. Shocker! Still, Simpsons THOHÂ episodes always have something curious about themÂ even at their absolute worst. The animation is usually quite elaborate, turning Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie & all our favorite Springfieldians into something off-kilter and Alf Clausen’s music was always an ethereal joy.
To talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of all this, Thomas Mariani has recruited three terrifying treehouse dwellers and fellow lifelongÂ The SimpsonsÂ fans Yonathan Habtemichael, Kaycee Jarrard and Scott Johnson. All three describe their passionate love for the classic years before groaning (and in some cases, sticking up for) the modern years that are so derided.Â Simpsons THOHÂ segments of old are praised for their consistent laughs, imagination, and cultural impact. More modern stories are… given a bit less praise. Yet, there’s still some love to go around for underrated gems and for the most peculiar episode: a HalloweenÂ SimpsonsÂ episode that is an anthology with no continuity?! Well, if you asked how that happened… a wizard did it. Happy Halloween Everybody… oh, it’s November 1st? D’OH!
