The show kicks off with a grab-bag of topics, including two long-form pieces: one about Brady, the other about Belichick. Also, Glenn, Lou and Christian cannot believe that Paul has never seen the movie 'Coming to America.'
The VP debate was last night, and Tim Kaine would not stop interrupting Mike Pence and dropping corny one-liners. The guys have some fun with some of the quotes from last night.
Glenn, Lou and Christian break down the AL Wildcard Game from last night, and the controversial decision to hold off from using closer (and potential Cy young candidate) Zach Britton.

This is absolutely chilling. I respect the opinion of people who worry that it’s too soon for a movie about the Marathon bombing, and the concern of those who think it’s wrong to make money off the events and so on. And I get that the trauma is still an every day part of many people’s lives.

But at the same time, major events can inspire great works of art, literature, music and film. It’s part of the human condition. A positive one. Especially if the work shines a light on great acts of heroism. Or a community coming together. Which I hope “Patriots Day” does.

If this trailer is any kind of a representation of the movie itself, it will be incredible.

Boston.comAccording to Fox, the third episode of [“The Simpsons”] 28th season, which airs Sunday, October 9 at 8 p.m., will see America’s favorite yellow family take a “hate-cation” to Boston. Here’s the synopsis of the episode, titled “The Town.”

After Homer catches Bart rooting for Springfield’s football rival, the Boston Americans, he plans a family “hate-cation” trip to Boston in an attempt to show Bart that Boston is a terrible city.
The Americans are a not-so-subtle stand-in for the New England Patriots, with promotional images showing a scowling, hoodie-wearing head coach, a reference to a player named “Bonkowski,” and a #12 that looks an awful lot like Tom Brady.

“The Simpsons” is doing a Boston episode … now? To quote the great Pedro Martinez, “Where you been, man?”

Boston has been dominating the landscapes of pop culture, sports and entertainment for the entire 21st century, and “The Simpsons” showrunners are just getting around to this now? I defies every natural law of satirical TV. Talk about being late to the party. I mean, what’s next? Jokes about the O.J. trial? Richard Simmons? “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”?

Of course the trendy, socially-acceptable thing to say is ” ‘The Simpsons’? Is that even still on? I stopped watching 20 years ago.” And it’s true that 28 years in, it is not the social institution it once was. And maybe I’m just still checking episodes out of loyalty to a show I’ve been watching since the pilot episode. But there are still occasional nuggets in there that make it better than 90 percent of sitcoms on the air. Hopefully doing one based in Boston, the epicenter of American zeitgeist in the 200os, will bring the show back to its former glory. Even if it does come about 15 seasons too late.
