"The Simpsons" Lego Episode Details

21 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first two photos have been released from the upcoming Lego-themed episode of "The Simpsons" scheduled to air on Fox on May 4th.

Co-executive producer Brian Kelley and executive producer Matt Selman, the two guys primarily responsible for the episode, spoke with EW about the challenge of the episode which began its gestation back in early 2012 - long before they knew about the recently released "The Lego Movie".

Due to the computer rendering, the episode was more "front-loaded" than usual and the script had to be done and set before the animation began. In terms of the look, it's said to be halfway between that of "The Lego Movie" and the Lego CGI cartoons. As for the actual plot?

"We thought it was cool to start off in the world of Lego and have all the characters think that this was their normal life. Then through a series of bizarre flashbacks, »

18 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Recently launched Idw Entertainment, along with George Lopez and his Travieso Production Company, has announced the development of "Wormwood," an animated television series based on the acclaimed Idw comics created by artist Ben Templesmith.

David M. Stern ("Ugly Americans," "The Simpsons") has been tapped to write the pilot episode and serve as an executive producer on the series. Circle of Confusion ("The Walking Dead") will also executive produce.

The Simpsons get 'Lego-fied' for 25th anniversary special

18 April 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, April 18: The 25th anniversary episode of 'The Simpsons' will see the cast in 'Lego' figurines.

According to the Independent, the 550th episode titled 'Brick Like Me', will show Homer Simpson freak out and realize that Springfield and its residents have been turned into plastic Lego pieces.

Executive producer Matt Selman told Entertainment Weekly that the episode is about awesomeness, and shows that a universe which is awesome all the time, isn't the one a person would truly want to live in.

The show's official Facebook page has revealed pictures ahead of the episode, which took two years to produce and will be the most ambitious and expensive one in the show's long history.

The Simpsons: 10 Secondary Characters Voiced By Hank Azaria

17 April 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

The bulk of The Simpsons’ expanded universe is voiced by four people: Hank Azaria, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, and Harry Shearer. Each has their main characters they bring life to every recording session, but each also is asked to provide distinct voices and personalities for another dozen (or several dozen) characters. And no one is asked to do that more than the star of such films as The Birdcage, Mystery Men, and The Smurfs, Hank Azaria.

Hank Azaria is not just the voice of Springfield residents Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Chief Clancy Wiggum, and Moe Syzslak: he is credited with voicing more than 200 Springfieldites since his first appearance as Moe (redubbing the voiceover originally done by former cast member Christopher Collins) in “Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire.” Some of those characters are one-offs, meant to deliver one line and then move on; some were created as one-offs, but were brought »

Robot Wars was the start of the weekend! DS readers' BBC Two memories

17 April 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BBC Two celebrates its 50th anniversary this weekend and we've been asking our readers for their fondest memories and favourite ever shows from the channel.

Here is just a small sample of your replies.

The Day Today - Snossis

"No one's mentioned The Day Today! Groundbreaking stuff! Also, I'm Alan Partridge was probably the best sitcom of the 90s."

Robot Wars was the start of the weekend! - Bassebuwa

"Everyone born in the late 80s/early 90s will remember having their tea in front of The Simpsons, Fresh Prince and - to mark the start of the weekend - Robot Wars. BBC Two used to be incredible. It's a shame it's now a shadow of its former self."

Bring back Red Dwarf! - Pointy

"Red Dwarf and The Mary Whitehouse Experience meant a lot to the 11-year-old me. Thank you, BBC Two."

You might want to block out some time for this episode of The Simpsons: On May 4, the long-running animated Fox comedy will journey into the world of Lego, as Homer finds himself transported into another yellow dimension. Will it be a snap for him to return to his old world? What happens when things like Kwik-e-Mart become the Brick-e-Mart?

10 Characters From The Simpsons Who Were Total Rip-Offs

11 April 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

“Animation is built on plagiarism. If it weren’t for someone plagiarizing The Honeymooners we wouldn’t have The Flintstones. If someone hadn’t ripped off Sergeant Bilko, there’d be no Top Cat. Huckleberry Hound, Chief Wiggum, Yogi Bear? Hah! Andy Griffith, Edward G. Robinson, Art Carney.” – Roger Meyers, Jr. “The Day The Violence Died,” Season 7 of The Simpsons.

The Simpsons has introduced television audiences to a cast of thousands in its 25 years on television, and not every character is 100% original. Most of the Simpsons’ family is named after creator Matt Groening’s own family, with many more characters named after pets, street names, and more in Groening’s hometown of Portland, Oregon. And then there are the characters that are more than just “named after” someone or something else.

Call it an homage. Call it a parody. Or call it flat-out thievery. Whatever you prefer, The Simpsons have done it many, »

The Simpsons gets a Mad Man Style Promo Trailer

11 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fox has released a great new promo trailer for the next episode of The Simpsons that parodies the vague promo trailer style for AMC's Mad Men. I love it when the team behind The Simpsons parodies other shows and movies like this. 

The episode is called Days of Future Future and it's a sequel to season 23's Holidays of Future Passed. The story is set 30 years in the future in 2044, "Jenda (Amy Poehler) is dating a crab-like alien creature and she's still not getting along with Bart, who is trying to get over his divorce and does it in a Total Recall-type way. Homer has a new clone for every time he dies. Lisa is married to a zombie version of Milhouse, while Bart deals with custody issues with his ex-wife, Jenda."

The Simpsons Mad Men parody teaser

11 April 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Louisa Mellor 11 Apr 2014 - 07:55

On the eve of Mad Men's seventh season, The Simpsons pokes fun at the show's famously elliptical teasers...

The Simpsons' guest-directed couch gags (from the likes of Sylvain Chomet and Guillermo del Toro) and movie-inspired sequences (see this wonderful walk through the world of Studio Ghibli) are arguably its best work of late. They're certainly the show's most shared work in recent years.

Following on from season twenty-three's The Man In The Blue Flannel Suit, an entire episode themed around Mad Men, is this parody teaser, which pokes fun at Mad Men's characteristically laconic and misleading episode trails, including a bonus Simpsons version of this season seven poster at the end.

Mad Men returns to AMC this Sunday the 13th of April.

Mad Men has made a name for itself by airing maddeningly vague previews of the coming week’s episode. (Oh, right — it also won the hearts and minds of American TV critics — and the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series four years in a row.) To promote its new episode at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Fox’s The Simpsons is getting all Mad at you by offering up a tease that will leave you none the wiser for having seen it. Check it out.

In the latest edition of “How many shows can Donal Logue appear in?” the busy actor will have a recurring role on Law & Order: Svu as the new Unit boss. He’ll be recurring for the rest of the season.

Chris Colfer will appear on an episode of Hot in Cleveland, according to TVLine. He’ll play the son of Wendy Malick‘s soap star Joy.

TV Land is reviving Candid Camera for a 10-episode summer run. Peter Funt, son of original Candid Camera host Allen Funt will host the new version which promises to be “daring but respectful”. I hope that means it’ll aim higher than the last reality TV-style revival of Candid Camera.  Also, please bring back the theme song from the 70′s version of the series.

With How I Met Your Mother off her schedule, Marvel announced that Cobie Smulders will return to Marvel’s Agents of S. »
