Talking Simpsons #533: Homer The Whopper

Homer The Whopper kicks off season 21 with the 442nd episode, first aired on September 27, 2009 with a script by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg and directed by Lance Kramer.

Comic Book Guy creates a new superhero called Everyman who takes powers from other superheroes. Homer is cast as the lead in the film adaptation. To get Homer into shape, the movie studio hires a celebrity fitness trainer, Lyle McCarthy to help him. Homer gets into great shape but his life falls apart when his fitness trainer quits and the movie bombs at the box office.

I like the idea of the series satirizing comic book superhero movies and Rogen & Goldberg do their best job they can to satirize the concept with Rogen turning in a great guest spot and overall, you do get some really good laughs for the majority of the episode but the overall story as its’ presented never really finds its’ true calling and kind of falls apart at the seams.
