'The Simpsons' doing online poker episode; Tilly guest stars

[Tilly] will make a cameo appearance in an episode as herself, popping up in an instructional DVD that Lisa watches to brush up on her card skills. (It turns out that Homer doesn’t trust banks and has stashed Lisa’s college fund in an online poker site.)

That will be the 24th season, they need to end the show. I love the Simpsons just as much as the next guy, but FFS.

Oh and the episode does seem funny, The Simpsons is the longest running prime time TV show.....EVER!

Any news about The Simpsons just depresses me at how completely unfunny it's been for so many years.

Like how they finally do one when online poker is pretty much irrelevant (in US) and while most of the population think its illegal in US

Absolutely. The problem with the Simpsons nowadays is that the characters have all become stereotypes of themselves.

Re: 'The Simpsons' doing online poker episode; Tilly guest stars

The online poker government propaganda begins. Watch for every popular show to dedicate some time to the subject and all of it to have the same viewpoint.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a current example:

The new South Park dissed gold just like Bernanke did the other day.

An old Twilight Zone that is rarely shown called "The Rip Van Wrinkle Caper" was on TV days after Bernanke's gold statement. In the episode, 4 guys steal 1 million in gold bricks, then enter suspended animation machines that wake them in 100 years in order to avoid capture and have a form of currency in their new era. Yada yada yada they kill each other over the gold and when a future couple happens upon the last dying man, there was this exchange:

"...the man named George gets back into his car to report Farwell's death to the police, he quizzically remarks to his wife, "Can you imagine that? He offered this to me as if it was really worth something." The wife vaguely recalls that it had indeed been valuable at some time in the distant past. The husband replies, "Sure, about a hundred years or so ago, before they found a way of manufacturing it," and tosses the gold bar away.

I'm sure there are tons of other anti-gold sentiments on other shows right now. Fortunately, it seems the government is on our side regarding poker. The Simpsons episode should give us an idea of exactly what Washington's stance is.

The writing was a lot more quality in the 90s compared to now. Dunno what happened but it's quite obvious if you compare an episode from the 90s and now.

Re: 'The Simpsons' doing online poker episode; Tilly guest stars

Although I agree that the Simpsons will never be what they once were in terms of hilarity they new episodes are still good, which is impressive because after 24 seasons of material I would image they have exhausted almost every plot ever imagined. Props to the Simpsons writers for keeping the same formula and not adapting a similar style to the more popular family guy. However the one question I have is what the hell took them so long to do a poker episode? Its widely known that Sam Simon loves poker and ESPN makes sure to show him, Ray Romano and Jason Alexander every year at the WSOP

Oh lol.

Does Tilly say in the video that you shouldn't bet with a full house because they could have quads?
