LET’S BREAK DOWN THE SIMPSONS/ FAMILY GUY CROSSOVER PREVIEW CLIP.
0:23: Oldest joke in the book.
0:32: Thank god.
0:37: MAD Magazine did it.
0:58: Bart hasn’t prank called Moe’s in about ten years, but sure, let’s dust this one off. What could go wrong?
1:28: WHAT THE FUCK
1:33: I appreciate this nod toward Family Guy’s cutaway bits, but instead of doing a cutaway bit, I would have liked to have seen this scene from Homer’s perspective, watching Peter stare off into space, imagining something. Also, doesn’t Family Guy get self-aware about these types of jokes a lot now? What’s the point?
2:02: This is a nice little nod to the programming block. The mildest of kudos to you.
2:15: I don’t get what’s funny about this bit. Is the joke that babies can’t skateboard?
2:31: And we arrive at the inevitable “Family Guy is a ripoff of The Simpsons” jokes. To be honest, I’ve never felt that way. From the beginning, Family Guy was more crass, more blunt, more referential than The Simpsons, and only ripped them off in that Peter is fat and Lois is a nag (and in that case they’re ripping off nearly every family sitcom that’s ever existed). Shows about dumb dads are nothing new, and the two shows pull their story ideas from such different places, the comparison isn’t apt. They’re like Mario and Sonic, or Conan and He-Man: it’s a riff on an established concept, but in a big enough different direction that it’s not quite a rip-off, or a parody, or an homage, it’s just its own thing.
3:11: Oh, good, a drawn-out fight scene. If Family Guy put more money into these things, they’d be fantastic. As they are, I’m just waiting for an actual joke.
3:34: Come on, Ralph Wiggum is one of the best characters on the show, you can’t come up with a better line than that?
3:49: WE GET IT.
4:40: Seeing Springfield Gorge is… honestly comforting. If anyone’s gonna bring this classic back, this is the time to do it.
Conclusion: I’ll probably watch this dumb bullshit when it comes out to point out how unnecessary it is and complain about it on the internet, as is my right, decreed to me by the great Jeff Albertson.
The Tenth Doctor’s Suit Button Analysis - now in Tumblr-image form!
Because the manner in which the suit is buttoned is important. No, really. It is!
In all honesty though, I’m rather impressed that DT took it upon himself to change it up. Keeping up with these tiniest of details is just another sign of how dedicated he was to Doctor Who.
The list owes much to Unfolded73’s Button Analysis on LiveJournal. As far as I’m aware she was the first to do the analysis back in March 2009 and share it with the world.
For the pedant in us all.
in which david is obsessed with his suit buttons…
This is amazing
