The Simp­sons

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 6pm, Ten It has been a while since I popped in on Homer, Marge and the kids. I can’t say I laughed out loud very of­ten, and I was a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed that the episode, Hardly Kirk­ing, had noth­ing what­so­ever to do with Star Trek, but I give the se­ries points for re­main­ing in­ter­est­ing, rel­e­vant and stun­ningly imag­i­na­tive. This is, af­ter all, the 13th episode of the 24th year of The Simp­sons. Sure, the show isn’t what it used to be at its best, but there are some great one-lin­ers. There is also a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene with a fem­bot that ap­pears to have dropped in from cre­ator Matt Groen­ing’s other (re­cently can­celled) an­i­mated se­ries, Fu­tu­rama.
