Ep. Review- Mypods and Broomsticks

December 2, 2008

   Without a doubt, I think this was the funniest episode of season 20. Although it was pretty predictable. And although I love the Apple computer company, it was funny how they mocked it in every way. Mypods, Myphones, hilarious. I also enjoyed the part when Bart replaced his voice on the giant screen and lied to all of the customers. One word, “GENIUS!”

If you missed this episode last night, you can watch it now by clicking Here!


During a trip to the mall, Lisa enters the Mapple Store and receives a myPod from Krusty. After Bart interrupts an important message from Mapple founder Steve Mobbs, angry Mapple customers chase him out of the Springfield Mall; on his way home, he runs into Muslim boy named Bashir and befriends him. After meeting Bashir, Homer is impressed by the boy’s manners, but Lenny, Carl and Moe attempt to convince him that all Muslims are terrorists. Homer shrugs it off, goes home and falls asleep; due to a dream featuring the Genie of Alladin, Homer becomes truly convinced the family really are terrorists. He invites Bashir’s family over to dinner in an attempt to prove to expose them, but openly discriminates them which prompts them to leave. Marge tells Homer to go to their house to apologize. Before he can apologize, Homer sees Bashir’s father working with dynamite in his garage; he eavesdrops on Bashir’s parents talking about Bashir’s father’s job as a demolition man, but Homer misses part of the conversation and thinks that Bashir’s father is a suicide bomber. Homer later has a conversation with Bashir’s mother, Mina, where he nervously tries to make friends with her. While snooping around her kitchen, Homer sees what appears to be plans to blow up the Springfield Mall.

He rushes to the Springfield Mall to warn the shoppers, and sees Bart standing near a detonator with Bashir and his father. Homer tries to get rid of the dynamite, blowing up a bridge in the process. Homer apologizes, and the Simpson family throws a “Pardon my Intolerance” party for Bashir’s family. Meanwhile, Lisa becomes obsessed with her new myPod until she gets a $1200 “myBill.” Lisa goes to Mapple headquarters to beg Steve Mobbs to consider a reduced payment plan. Steve Mobbs offers Lisa a job at Mapple to help with her bill. Much to her chagrin, Lisa is given a job where she must stand on a street corner dressed as a myPod, handing out Mapple pamphlets and telling people to “Think Differently.”
