THE SIMPSONS: Last Exit to Sprooklyn

If you happened to catch last night’s Season 22 premiere of The Simpsons (basically this show has been on for my entire life), you were probably expecting a Glee-tacular (at least that’s the way FOX pimped it). But what emerged was the welcome return of Flight of the Conchords. As two camp counselors, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie turned Lisa on to the world of art and theater (loved the Angels in America shout-out) before the dreariness of their existence became all too clear. Far from a Simpsons classic, but it was nice to have “New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a capella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo” back on screen. Never heard of them? Watch and you’ll be hooked.
