Last night, it was Ned Flanders chasing Homer Simpson in Fox’s latest Simpsons episode. Most of the chase was a takeoff of Casino Royale’s parkour chase, with the cartoon characters bouncing off walls, cars and down and around a construction site.
Someone in Simpsons TV land really likes James Bond!
All the elements were nearly in place, down to Paris locations, the shot of a drowning Henry as in the opening Die Another Day credits, the baddie with the mutilated face, and more.
They threw a big budget and lots of twists into the hour long premiere. I was impressed.
It was the Bond hat trick last night on My Own Worst Enemy. First, Slater is taken out with inhaled powder (TSWLM), then phony ambulance drivers cart him away to cover up the snatch (TLD), he wakes up to be offered an anti-poisoning defibrillator application, on a time limit (CR).
All Bond and more good stuff. This NBC thriller has my attention Mondays!
