'The Simpsons' spoofs those 'Mad Men' previews
Mad Men has made a name for itself by airing maddeningly vague previews of the coming week’s episode. (Oh, right — it also won the hearts and minds of American TV critics — and the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series four years in a row.) To promote its new episode at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Fox’s The Simpsons is getting all Mad at you by offering up a tease that will leave you none the wiser for having seen it. Check it out.
Fine, we won’t leave you totally in the dark. In the episode, which is a sequel to season 16’s “Future-Drama” and is set 30 years in the future, Homer gets a new clone every time he dies, Lisa’s husband is a zombie version of Millhouse, and Bart clashes with his ex-wife, Jenda (voiced by Amy Poehler), who is romantically entangled with a crab-like alien.
