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.
