  1. Simpsons has really become hit and miss. This episode was a miss, the writing was really terrible. The plot so weak that the time is wasted with not funny cameos and elongated scenes. Nigerian Prince?, could have been a funny one liner, but instead was a forced 5 minutes of non-funny material. The writers this season really don’t understand the Simpsons or its long time fans.

  2. So Richard Branson’s going to play himself, but isn’t taking over the entire episode. It’s a cameo, sounds like, and in an episode that actually has a plot. He could’ve taught Elon Musk a thing or two.
