Comedic twitter personalities are the new "hanging from hooks in your skin" fetish for me. People recommend them like they're great; but when I give in and get impaled and hung from the ceiling or go to their twitter page, all I can think is "Why isn't this better?".

i watched it. most of the new material was pretty terrible but it was amusing for the novelty of it and the old clips they showed. i would’ve rather watched a doc on the actual making of the episode

Damn that’s kinda what I assumed it actually was, even though it was a mockumentary.

nevermind i took the 5 seconds to google it and saw it was a one-off thing

if you want a good making-of for that episode, though, deadspin did one 5 years ago for the 20th anniversary

distressingly, the alt-right has been weaponizing homer badman against "sjws" for at least the last couple of years

the "talking simpsons" podcast (featuring @bobservo) made a good point about homer badman in that ashley grant would be scrutinized just as much if not more than homer

is that one more interesting than "everything's coming up simpsons" or whatever? i tried to listen to that one a few times and it just felt like people rehashing their favorite jokes which got boring fast

haven't heard that one so i can compare but it's pretty in-depth in terms of discussion and they're not afraid to make valid criticisms against jokes/episodes they don't like. they also go on tangents when elaborating on certain pop culture references made on the show that have been forgotten, which i find pretty entertaining

for clarity, is this just "talking simpsons" or "WE'RE talking simpsons" because of course both of those have to exist

looking at it i'm pretty sure that's the right one. it's an episode-by-episode breakdown and even the description for the homer badman ep calls it problematic

There are, like, ten Simpsons podcasts that do episode-by-episode reviews.

I like The Simpsons Show the best, it's the only one I listen to weekly, despite it having the most generic name.

Everything's Coming Up Simpsons is OK.

Four Finger Discount have a huge Facebook following (largely for non-podcast-related but still-Simpsons-related content) and even got a book deal out of it.

Then there's Pods in the Key of Springfield, the aforementioned Talking Simpsons and We're Talking Simpsons, plus Worst Episode Ever, The Simpsons Index..

Even listening to just one or two of each to pick a favourite can feel like too much effort, I'm pretty sure I've listened to one or two of each but they blend into one another.
