Since no one watches The Simpsons anymore because everyone is convinced that the show stopped being entertaining many seasons ago, it's up to me to recount the family's brief video game-themed segment in last night's new episode (Season 23, Episode 5 - "The Food Wife").
In the program's opening minutes, Homer takes Bart and Lisa on a special Saturday trip to the Expensive Electronic Entertainment Expo, where they're amazed by all the latest new titles and hardware from Protovision, Chalmskin Interactive, Electronic Crafts, and Funtendo.
Some of the parody games on display at the E3 spoof include Grand Theft Scratchy: Itchy City Stories, Dig Dug Revelations, Earthland 2: The Outing of the Realms, Shaun White: Time Snowboarder, World of Krustcraft, TMTOMO, HTMFL, and DL2L2D.
While Bart plays Guts of War II: Entrails of Intestinox, Lisa spends time with Marching Band, which is like a cross between Rock Band and Major Minor's Majestic March, except one of the challenges is to study for a chemistry test during the 12-hour bus trip back home.
If you or your DVR missed the episode, it should show up on Hulu in a couple days. The rest of the episode, which has Marge and the kids running a foodie blog, isn't as bad as you'd expect from recent Simpsons shows!
