Chef Mario Batali will also appear as himself.

In this year’s Halloween special, “Maggie becomes possessed by an ancient demon, Lisa discovers a creepy/perfect version of her family in an alternate universe and Homer cannibalizes himself.”

    I know it’s become cliche to say but Simpsons hasn’t been the same for a while. Even the Halloween specials which had always been some of my favourite episodes (The Shining one being a stand out) but lately at least the last couple seasons of the show it just hasn’t had me laugh as much as it used to.

    Maybe I’ll put it down to my age rather than the quality of the show but maybe this is the very reason that so few shows last 20 plus seasons. I think South Park, I’m not a viewer anymore, but I think they are more political and have ruder comedy that has and probably will keep it going for a while more but the Simpsons has been running for so long it has become almost fan fiction rather than a slight and piss take on the classic sitcom family that it started out as.

      South Park still has good moments, better than what The Simpsons are showing lately.

      I don’t blame ya. One of the Treehouse of Horror they made a parody of Transformers and Homer turning him into a killer…..i mean, how are those scary? Not to mention they made a repeat where Ned is the killer and a Harry Potter parody…….they forgot why Treehouse of Horror was so good since they based them with stuff like EC comics, Outer Limits and the Twilight zone, not just known horror movies.

        So true. I’m a big fan of Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits (which were far ahead of their time), and the early Treehouses were good some even going close to brilliant but once they started to use them to parody films and do them rather badly I got turned off the episodes and then I’m not sure when exactly it just became less and less funny for me to watch and so I just sort of sit in the background letting the nieces and nephews watch them with an ear for any good ones (there haven’t been yet lol).

    I look forward to Treehouse of Horror every year and this year looks awesome as usual. “The butcher knife Lisa…” 🙂

    Every year I make the mistake of watching a few Simpsons episodes. I always feel bummed out at how far one of the greatest shows of all times has fallen in quality.
