Episode Highlights from “YOLO”

Last night a new episode of the The Simpsons premiered. Rather then delve too much into the specifics of the episode, I’d rather just touch on some of the highlights. This is after all a gaming blog, not a television blog.

If you’re like me, when you see a new episode you imagine the opportunities the developers could have had with Tapped Out.

We could have had…
Towards the end of the episode Homer crashes into the “tallest building in Springfield”, an item I immediately wish we had in-game. Of course, we have enough over-sized vanity items in the game, but the design is really cool. Perhaps that is because it is modeled after the actual tallest man-made structure in the world, the Burj Khalifa, a skyscraper located in Dubai.

Did you notice…
Principal Skinner closes his laptop, but before he does we get a glimpse of the web-site he was browsing. It is a Japanese web page, that plays the same music as the Mr. Sparkle commercial.

This was the first episode to feature Mrs. Krabappel since the death of Marcia Wallace. Now we know that “retiring her character” means that they won’t produce any further episodes with Edna, but anything already finished will air.
