The Simpsons Season 31 Episode 3 Review: The Fat Blue Line

Fat Tony dodges a hostile takeover and Chief Wiggum recognizes a clue on The Simpsons' The Fat Blue Line.

This The Simpsons review contains spoilers.

The Simpsons Season 31 Episode 3

The Simpsons, season 31, episode 3, "The Fat Blue Line," is a supporting character-led episode, focusing on Chief Clancy Wiggum, the worst cop the state attorney's investigating officer ever had the pleasure of humiliating in front of his men. While stories focusing on secondary character stories on The Simpsons have had as mixed success as Wiggum's policing, this episode works with only minor appearances from the titular family itself.

After the couch gag recreates Queen's performance at the 1985 Live Aid concert, with Homer doing Freddie Mercury, Lisa as John Deacon, Marge as Brian May and Bart as Roger Taylor all being produced by Maggie, the episode dives straight into fast-paced comedy without coming up for air.

Live After Death: Inside Music’s Booming New Hologram Touring Industry

Live After Death: Inside Music’s Booming New Hologram Touring Industry
A recent tribute concert dubbed The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa in Huntington, New York had all the markings of a concert by the rock iconoclast from nerdy fans geeking out about the night’s guitar players before the show to doo-wop intro music but with one marked problem: Frank Zappa died in 1993. The mustachioed musician at the center of it all, playing alongside erstwhile members of Zappa’s band, wasn’t a real person at all. It was a hologram.

To be fair, the apparition truly looked like an

Rami Malek Says He Felt Like Freddie Mercury Told Him Not To Do Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s a fact, as unfortunate as it is, that Freddie Mercury died from AIDS in late 1991. It’s also a fact that Rami Malek took him an Academy Award for his portrayal of the late great singer in last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

In the conversation of great performances, we also know that many dedicated actors develop a spiritual connection to the roles that they play, especially when it comes to reimagining the life of a real person. It’d be safe to assume that Malek felt this to some extent, given his almost uncanny resemblance to Mercury. But apparently, that connection reached, at some point, beyond the spiritual and into the supernatural.

A recent Express article dug up an appearance with Malek on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, focusing on one strange story the actor decided to tell. The tale, on paper, was about the future Oscar-winner

Flashback: Pink Floyd, Queen, Black Sabbath Members Rock for Armenia in 1989

When an earthquake decimated parts of Armenia and killing between 25,000 to 50,000 people in 1988, the world was in shock. The Ussr earmarked the equivalent of billions of dollars to help rebuild, the U.S. sent medical aid and search dogs, and people from all over Europe came to help. Perhaps the most surprising fundraising effort, though, came from a who’s who of rock and metal legends calling themselves Rock Aid Armenia. The supergroup, which featured Deep Purple’s Ritchie Blackmore, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Queen’s Brian May and Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi,

Spotlight: Queen's Charity Work

On 23rd November 1991 Freddie Mercury announced to the world that he had AIDS and the next day he died peacefully at his home. He remains the most high profile loss from the disease in the entertainment world and the news shocked fans throughout the world. As a tribute ‘Bohemian Rhapsody /These Are The Days Of Our Lives’ was released as a double A-sided single to raise funds for the Terence Higgins Trust. It entered the UK chart at No. 1, where it stayed for five weeks, raising over £1,000,000 for the charity, and Queen became the first band to have the same single top the UK charts twice. In December of that year Queen had 10 albums in the UK Top 100. In 1992 Freddie was awarded posthumously the Brit’s “Outstanding Contribution to British Music” and ‘Days Of Our Lives’ won Best Single. In April, many of the world’s top stars joined Brian May,

How ‘Good Omens’ Was Able to Get the Rights to Queen’s Music – Including ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

(Warning: This story contains small spoilers for Amazon’s “Good Omens.”)

Any fan of the book “Good Omens” will tell you how central a role Queen’s music played in the story of Crowley and Aziraphale, and the director of Amazon Prime Video’s TV adaptation told TheWrap just how “desperate” he was to obtain the rights to that music.

“If you know the book at all, the Queen joke is a huge one in the book and runs all the way through it,” Douglas Mackinnon told TheWrap. “I was desperate to get the music.”

A running gag throughout the book is that most of the music tapes in Crowley’s (David Tennant) car — a 1926 Bentley — are from Queen. And even the tapes that aren’t Queen still sound like “Queen-ified” versions of other artists. So pretty much every time Crowley drives his car in the Amazon series, there is

Glen Hansard Is Tired of Being an Earnest Balladeer

Glen Hansard Is Tired of Being an Earnest Balladeer
Glen Hansard once received a nickname from his friend Nico Muhly: Earnest Strum. The name was a way for Muhly, a contemporary composer, to poke fun at the type of exceedingly sincere, traditionally-rooted folk that Hansard has mostly been making for the past dozen years, ever since he rose to unlikely mainstream fame with the success of the 2007 musical drama Once.

In recent years, Hansard himself has grown a bit restless with his reputation as a bearded balladeer. After 2018’s Between Two Shores, the latest in a steady stream of heartfelt solo records,
