I’m pretty psyched about tomorrow night’s broadcast of “The Simpsons.” Ricky Gervais, best known for his work as crummy boss David Brent on “The Office,” wrote the episode and will guest star.
I don’t know what to expect. Most of my experience with Gervais has been with the cringing humor of the British sitcom. I’m curious to see what he does with Our Favo(u)rite Family. It will be interesting to see his take on the American version of “The Office” when he writes an episode next season.
Bonus cool — Sunday’s broadcast will include the live action opening credits developed by Sky One as a promo. The Simpsons take human form, if only for a few brief seconds.
Not-so-bonus cool — It’s a bummer that last week’s rumor that “Futurama” is coming back for a full season didn’t pan out (yet). Happy to see the DVDs seem to still be on track, but it would’ve been sweet to see the adventures of the Planet Express crew.
