if you missed last nights’ new simpsons episode you missed a cracker..
they tackled the vexed subject of the after-life (different heavens for catholics and protestants..they can see each other…the catholics are partying down..the protestants far more uptight and white bread..ha!)
the plot-line is bart gets expelled (for something he hasn’t done), and is sent to a catholic school..he converts to catholicism..drags homer along..and a religous schism appears/rears in the simpsons family and the town/people of springfield…
the religous right in america screamed blue murder over this one..
i can’t see why..it ends with bart telling the warring slices of the same pie to get real..that they are all playing for the same team..bart becomes a revered prophet.. with unfortunate future implications/outcomes..
it’s a ripper of a show..the boy and i are in full agreement..the best new simpsons in many a long day..
