Josh Weinstein was a writer on The Simpsons during what many consider the show's Golden Age. He joins Allie and Jeremy to discuss Twin Peaks as well as how it influenced Simpsons classic cliffhanger "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"
If you are a fan of The Simpsons at all (not even necessarily a die-hard), this episode might make your brain explode in joy.
WARNING: Contains spoilers for "Who Shot Mr. Burns?", including the name of the shooter.
A couple of recording breaks can be heard in the recording due to noise interrupting our intrepid trio, but thankfully, zero content was lost.
Show Notes and Links
- Josh Weinstein (twitter) is currently working on Strange Hill High (seasons 1 & 2 now on Netflix in the States) and Gravity Falls, both of which are great.
- Yes, Gravity Falls is made to be kid-friendly, but the writing and world they've built is better than 90% of TV made for adults. Full episodes are posted on the official site.
- Who Shot Mr. Burns? was comprised of the season 6 finale episode of The Simpsons and the season 7 premiere.
- SCTV got everything right down to the smallest details. At used prices, the DVDs are a steal, and essential in the library of anyone who really loves and appreciates comedy writing.
