The Simpsons: Future-Drama (#16.15)" (2005)
17 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen this episode twice now, and always with episodes set in the future, the makers can let their imagination run riot to perfection. I know this type of setting has been done before, but never the less, it's always great to see how far they can stretch the unbelievable out to make it look believable. One little annoying thing is that this particular episode has a larger than usual soundtrack attached to it, but the song played during Homer and Bart's hover-drive has been omitted from the playlist. I know this is a Steely Dan/Donald Fagan track, but can't for the life of me find out what it is. If anyone out there knows, please tell.
