Teleplay is by “Carolyn? Oh. Mean, Eh?”
Objects of parody this year:
* “127 Hours”
* “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”
More in the text invisible.
* The “127 Hours” parody features more dismemberment than the movie. It’s the first, funniest and shortest of the four segments, which makes it particularly convenient for “Boardwalk Empire” fans.
* “Diving Bell and the Butterball” likely features more flatulence per second than any seven minutes of primetime broadcast television ever. Its extended twist ending is very strange without being particularly funny.
* Ned Flanders is a serial murderer who gets instructions from the Father/Holy Ghost rather than the ghost of his father. This segment features a brief homage to some old Chuck Jones cartoons.
* Superintendant Gary Chalmers gets the Stephen Lang role. Lisa is Sigourney Weaver. And Bart gets to bone a Rigellian.
8 p.m. Sunday. Fox.
