All LEGO episode of The Simpsons to air this season

The Simpsons are getting in on the LEGO buzz, with a new episode due to air this May...

What are the odds? First, a Simpsons-themed LEGO set is released, then an (admittedly fantastic) LEGO movie is released, and now, we're about to see the first ever LEGO episode of The Simpsons. It's almost as if someone up there has a business plan.

The 550th episode of the animated series will be rendered entirely in LEGO, air on Fox on the 4th of May, and is entitled Brick Like Me. Here's the official synopsis:

(UK readers please be advised, it features the US pluralisation of LEGO) "Homer wakes up in a world where his family and everyone in Springfield are made of Legos. Will he be able to "put together" how he got there and how to get back home before he's stuck in the brick world forever?"

The Simpsons, currently on its twenty-fifth season, has already been recommissioned for a twenty-sixth.

Simpsons Lego Video game next?

YES!

"Legos" is not American, it's just wrong.
But on topic, I hope it won't hurt my eyes.

The Simpsons is like an old but beloved family dog. Back when it was young and in its prime it was the best dog ever but now it's old and tired, it's legs are arthritic and it occasionally has uncontrollable diarrhea. It sometimes shows flashes of its old brilliant self but most of the time it's just sad to watch this old overweight shadow of its former self. You love this dog because of all the great memories but you know that it's best to put it out of its misery and move on and maybe find a new dog.

With you 100% on this one. It actually makes me a little sad when the Simpsons comes up in conversation and everyone realises that the references or jokes we're talking about are at least ten to fifteen years old. This show used to set the standard for others to follow - now it just seems content to follow the latest trend. I mean, sure the Game of Thrones style opening a year or two ago was fun, but it's sad that was the first time I'd actually paid attention to the show (or anyone had even mentioned it to me even in passing) for years (at least since the film in 2008) and, until this article, I hadn't really heard much about it since. Still, those first ten or so years were genius (although that doesn't mean I need to watch them on endless repeat, Channel 4).

Wow those Danes can market.

Not just me that thinks the only time it gets somewhere near interesting is Halloween and whenever they try a new gimmicky ep then? To be honest, I don't get how the Simpsons made it to nearly 30. But then, I don't really "do" the comedy that Simpsons and Futurama deal with, so that's probably part of it.

Wait... They're STILL making NEW episodes of "The Simpsons"???

You know, I sort of felt pained when I first heard people talking about the first SIX seasons of the Simpsons being the 'good years', because I always thought it took a nose-dive after the initial writing team handed over the reigns at the end of season 3.

Man I feel old.

OK I'm going to say it - I still like the Simpsons!
Sure the show has changed, but that doesn't mean it's worse, I still find a lot in it to enjoy. So far, in this series the episode about movie piracy, and the one about the oogle goggles were both fantastic. Both of those had me laughing throughout, and even the not so great episodes still tend to have at least a couple of solid laughs for me - which is more than a lot of full length supposed comedy movies these days.

Highly agree with you Damon, Sure the series isn't as good as a few years back but they still get a fair few solid episodes per season

*SPOILER* This could be better than Milhouse's Lego Movie cameo (he's a bit dorky, of course he's a master builder!).
