The Simpsons hasn’t been a show with much to offer since the early 2000s yet it continues to keep on kicking regardless of whether or not it’s long since passed it’s expiration date. But while the show has turned many of it’s loyal original fans off, the series is still trying to keep things fresh with interesting ideas for episodes that air.
Call it innovative or call it a total ant utter sell-out, but The Simpsons will be releasing an all-LEGO animated episode next month. We got our first look at that episode thanks to a new photo released by Fox.
On the one hand, the episode is an interesting way to go about doing things as the show has struggled to be fresh with it’s satire and has instead gone for one-off ideas for episodes like this. On the other hand, The Simpsons will be releasing their first ever LEGO sets next month and the episode can very easily be viewed as a half-hour commercial for those sets.
Either way, the show has drifted very far from it’s 90s roots and while the satire and good writing may be dead an buried, the wild high concept ideas clearly aren’t.
