The Simpsons 

Review of "The Great Phatsby" First-Ever One-Hour Episode Of THE SIMPSONS Airing Sunday, Jan. 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT)

My husband and I watched the first few seasons of "The Simpsons." It was very funny. Eventually, it became less so, so we stopped watching.  We picked it up again a few years ago, but it still wasn't all that funny, so we stopped watching again. I think they've long run out of jokes, to be honest. They have stories now, and they're not as funny as the old ones were. Still, some stories (and jokes) are better than others. This episode is pretty good and make me chuckle a lot.

It combines The Great Gatsby with Empire, among other thing. Monty Burns gets involved with another rich guy, a rap mogul, who ends up taking him for an expensive ride. Homer comes to the rescue (as does Smitthers) to help him get revenge.  Check it out!
