Jack and Dan are back from hiatus and back from reality to discuss Season 17's The Seemingly Never-Ending Story, an episode that contains weak stories within weak stories within weak stories. How do WEE celebrate Christmas? What is the stupidest moment of this episode of WEE? What's the deal with taking breaks? Is this the Night Court theme? All that plus two idiots barking, Bibles Gone Wild, lots and lots of 90s commercials, and Pure. Gibberish.Read More
Worst Episode Ever is a podcast by people who love “The Simpsons,” for people who love “The Simpsons,” about how much we hate “The Simpsons.” Our mission is to find which episode is THE worst episode ever and if you have a good one, you can suggest it right here and take a look at our official rankings here!
90s Percentile is a podcast talking everything 90s, and maybe also everything before and after. On 90s Percentile, Jack and Dan randomly select your listener topics and discuss live-to-tape for exactly sixty minutes in our patented WEE way. You can suggest your 90s topic right here!
Dan and Jack are joined by special guest Elliot Jay O'Neill (@elliotjayoneill, Host of The Simpsons Index podcast) to dig deep into the Sideshow Bob mythology and discuss Season 17's The Italian Bob. How did this episode win a WGA award? What is Bob really short for? Is this the worst ending ever? What is the exception to the comedy rule of three? All that plus another series finale theory, groan-cancelling headphones, Prison Man, and parallel imports (pop pop pop.)Read More
Jack and Dan take a couple of left turns and watch Season 17's "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife," an episode penned by and starring Ricky Gervais that combines elements from Shary Bobbins, the Mel Gibson episode, Helter Shelter, and every plot threatening Homer & Marge's marriage. How many seasons can you go before you're allowed to repeat the same joke? Why are WEE buying 10,000 matches? What was "Your Neighbors' Home's" concept album? All that plus the pot calls the kettle self-indulgent, Homon, and #WheresWEEStudiosNobelPeacePrizeNobelPrizeOrPeacePrizeGiveUsthePeacePrizeToo.Read More
From their Solid Gold Tesseract, Jack & Dan discuss season 17's My Fair Laddy, a Groundskeeper Willie episode (that's good) that's also a musical (that's bad.) They talk about the show's connection to experimental horror novel House of Leaves, musical parodies throughout the series, and the show's overuse of lampshading (and what lampshading is.) What kind of texture is Homer's blue pants? Where is Sideshow Mel from exactly? Why does DARPA need a second Internet? All that plus Jerkass Krusty, assless Homer, and classic Simpsons character Lawrence Kwincy Tierney.Read More
It's the spooooky first annual Mayoween for Worst Episode Ever (in April), where we watch Season 17's Treehouse of Horror XVI, a Halloween episode (which originally aired in November). Makes sense to us. Have the post-classic Treehouses of Horror gotten a lot more gruesome? Why have they transitioned into doing four segments instead of three? And what is Dan going to do with all this mayonnaise? All that, plus Jack learns of the phrase "Smooth move, Exlax," the drama of blank seats at the movies, and our favorite Treehouse of Horror segments. On top of all that, new friend of the show, Groophic, reminds us to wear our bike helmets!Read More
It's the cold, dark, depressing month of January, a perfect time for Season 17's "Bonfire of the Manatees." Didn't this episode open with a St. Patrick's Day parade? No? It actually opens with Homer shooting a porno? And it gets worse from there...? Well. This should be a fun one. Join us, with Alec Baldwin as a manatee enthusiast, as we dig deep into the excessive violence in this episode, debate what makes a good couch gag, and question why an episode so clearly focused on Marge is really all about Homer. Why is this episode's plot a Voltron-like combination of lesser plots? Why is Homer so over-the-top unlikeable here? And what other episodes did this episode's writer pen? (The answer MAY shock you, much like a car cigarette lighter). All that, plus, hard-hitting philosophical questions about manatees, more loose analogies to Spider-Man, and our new show sponsor: Vlassic pickles (not really).Read More
