Trivia

At the end of the episode, Marge comes out and says there was a mistake and that the episode was supposed to be a parody of 'Moonlight' and not 'La La Land.' This is a reference to the Academy Award ceremony where 'La La Land' was named best picture by mistake before "Moonlight" was announced as the real winner. See more »

Fun, but Had a Greater Potential,
11 November 2018 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Haw-Haw Land is a good Simpsons episode with a well written plot and plenty of very funny moments. I definitely enjoyed Lisa's bond with Brendan and the crontrasting conflict between her and Nelson. The side story was also quite fun, seeing Bart getting in to chemistry created some chuckle worthy moments.

I did, however, find that the episode was a bit misleading. Featuring Ed Sheeran as the voice of Brendan and having the name be a parody of La La Land, I was anticipating the episode to be a full blown musical or to at least feature a few new songs, but it instead is quite a by the numbers Simpsons, it could have done something so much more interesting.

I thought Ed Sheeran did a great job as Brendan and quite like the quality he generally has as an actor, he fitted in to the universe of Springfield seamlessly.

Fun episode. Certainly not amazing, but Haw-Haw Land is a solid Simpsons.

Nelson gets jealous when Lisa falls for jazz pianist Brendan. Meanwhile, Bart finds out he has a gift for chemistry.
