There’s good reason FOX never aired the 2006 O.J. Simpson If I Did It interview. The “Lost Confession” finally came to light on Sunday, and a few telltale slips during the macabre interview may see Simpson confirming his guilt in the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman.
The first X-Files revival had fans questioning the series’ role in modern times, to say nothing of the poorly-received return this past week. Star Gillian Anderson also suggested that Season 11 might be her last, and now both FOX and creator Chris Carter seem to be jumping ship without Scully at the helm.
We may never get another Simpsons Movie, but Bob’s Burgers is anything but sloppy seconds. The fan-favorite FOX animated series is officially taking the Belchers to the big screen, as Bob’s Burgers has ordered up a theatrical movie for 2020.
We’ve seen The Simpsons and Robot Chicken team up for a couch gag once before, but never to take aim at South Park, or the California Raisins for that matter. And yet, both end up facing Homer’s wrath in a new couch gag from Sunday’s latest, featuring Robot Chicken co-creator Seth Green.
Now that The Simpsons firmly has 600 episodes under its belt, here’s to another 300 hours of pop-culture parody. To start, Itchy & Scratchy get a Making a Murderer makeover, as The Simpsons takes aim at Netflix’s breakout documentary series.
Season 28 is shaping up to be a big one for The Simpsons; not solely for the series’ first hour-long special, or even the 600th episode, but also some of the familiar faces popping up. To wit, the joint Treehouse of Horror and 600th episode will feature the return of one of Homer’s greatest adversaries, as the famous Frank Grimes pops in from beyond the grave.
The Simpsons still has a few surprises left in its old age, and after going live this past season, Springfield will chart a new frontier: the full hour! After 28 years, America’s favorite family will run a full hour-long episode for the very first time, with special guest Taraji P. Henson and more.
For all the anticipation going into FOX’s X-Files revival, few would argue that the awkward balance of mythology and stand-alone episodes over six hours made it difficult to gain much traction. Time will tell if Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny manage to coordinate for an eleventh season revival, though Duchovny at least believes the next round would need more than six episodes to do right.
