The Simpsons do MMA

MMA Payout brings me the news that MMA will be featured on this Sunday’s Simpsons episode. Here’s the episode summary from Fox:

The men and boys of Springfield become obsessed with Mixed Martial Arts, a violent sport where fighters inflict severe pain on one another. When Marge and her friends stage a protest, the show’s promoter embraces the controversy and challenges Marge to a match, promising to shut down the competition if she wins in “The Great Wife Hope” episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Oct. 11 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SI-2016) (TV-PG D, L, V)

Voice Cast: Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson; Julie Kavner as Marge Simpson; Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson; Yeardley Smith as Lisa Simpson; Hank Azaria as Moe; Harry Shearer as Skinner; Pamela Haden as Milhouse; Tress MacNeille as Dolph.

I’ve been giving the Simpsons one chance per season to not suck since Season 12, so I guess this is as good of a chance as any to try out season 21. They did a pretty wicked show on Evolution back during season 17, so maybe – just maybe – this episode won’t suck huge dong.
