I bet this was written while Steve Jobs was still alive, then changed it when he died. Then they'll reveal he was alive somewhere this whole time.
Lisa wins a Mapple MyPod for Homer, who thinks that Steve Mobs can communicate from the dead through it to him; when it breaks, Ned discovers a "miracle tree" in the Simpson yard
ETA: Bob on the Wright brothers plane!
“20 More Shoplifting Days ‘til Christmas!”
Yes, Homer is so stupid, he almost drowns in his sleep when it rains. Really loved his baseball dream, though. The ocean fills up the stadium, and the ground crew STILL tries to pull out the tarp.
Liked the silent auction bit. Of course Rev. Lovejoy would bid like hell on the train set. He even wins it!
“Remember when me getting a cell phone was a big deal?” Absolutely loved that callback with Moe. He still doesn’t have one!
So, the show is a few years late to making fun of Apps, but we had lots of great ones. I really want that mustache one, and "distracted driver" and the Burns-to-Normal translator (I believe it was called Rosetta Crone) were pretty brilliant.
Lots of good sign gags tonight: Springfield Zoo: "See all your animal friends in Prison!", Marge's "The Girl Who Regretted Her Tattoo" book, "All Hope Lost For Missing Hiker" during Homer's "hope" montage.
So we got more of Kent Brockman's backstory: He became disillusioned with hope after seeing a Mickey Mouse character at Disneyland out of his costume. Also, we finally have confirmation that Kenny Brockelstein was his real name.
Because the show was short, we got a parody of "Logorama." Not complaining, this was probably the biggest instance of continuity porn in the entire series. Funzo blew up a Mr. Sparkle billboard! All the logos in that bit were all from the show.
