The Simp­sons

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 6pm, Ten Who says The Simp­sons has de­volved into black com­edy? In Whiskey Busi­ness, bar owner Moe is feel­ing low and unloved. His phone call to a help hot­line is a scream. Manned by an au­to­mated voice recog­ni­tion sys­tem it drives him to­wards the brink. But Bart — who prank calls to ask for ‘‘ a Mr Ron, first name Moe’’ — in­fu­ri­ates him, and he accidentally comes a crop­per. Nat­u­rally the drinkers in the bar run to help. They pro­vide CPR to the tune of How Deep is Your Love? and a re­vived Moe joins in. Feel­ing guilty as hell, Homer, Lenny, Carl and Marge take Moe to Capi­tol City to cheer him up. Watch out for a very cool minute of Go­tye mu­sic at the fairground. Can that guy put a foot wrong th­ese days?
