During the end credits, gun shots are heard when Phil Hartman's name appears on screen. This eerily predicts the actor's death later in the year when he was shot by his wife. See more »

Another stupid clip show
11 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, I am a huge Simpsons fan and I have been collecting all of the seasons on DVD as they've been released.

But after 4 minutes into the episode "All singing, All dancing" I immediately fast-forwarded through the entire episode only to find that it was yet another clip show containing archive footage of past episodes where people sang a song and danced.

That is why I didn't even bother watching this episode on DVD. Because I've already seen all the episodes with songs and dances throughout the entire series to date, and I don't really care about seeing them again in season 9. If I wanted to see them again I would pull out the older seasons and watch them!!!

This is why they should NOT do clip shows. They're a complete waste of time and a slap in the face to all the fans who have already seen this crap before. Seriously, its really cheap that the writers use old footage and a mediocre plot to pass off a worthless 24 minutes of what they consider an episode.

And whats even worse is this isn't the first time its been done... Remember Season 4 episode 18: "So It's come to this: A Simpsons clip show" which was actually an okay episode because it had a good plot. But remember Season 6 episode 3: "Another Simpsons Clip Show"? Yeah same crap.

If I were Matt Groening I would of had this episode scrapped before it could even air. I hope they don't create anymore clip show episodes in the future seasons.
