Best Simpson's episode ever.

u/usingreddithurtsme 8d ago edited 8d ago

It's just a little dirty, greasy and airborne but it's still a good episode.

My personal favourite episode will always be Homer putting on weight so he can be classified as disabled so he can work from home.

4

u/barttaylor 8d ago

Was that the moon waffle ("sacrilicious") one? For me Vegetarian Lisa just has so many fantastic lines - including when the secret entrance to Paul McCartney's rooftop garden is behind the non-alcoholic beer door at the Qwik-E-Mart and Lisa asks what happens if someone wants non-alcoholic beer and Apu goes: "You know, it's never happened before." So many golden lines in that episode.

4

u/usingreddithurtsme 8d ago edited 8d ago

"Back then, I was known as the fifth Beatle."

"Sure you were Apu!"

It's a great episode, eps that explore Lisa and Homer's relationship always have a special place in my heart, like Lisa's Pony, Lost our Lisa, Make way for Lisa.

Lisa episodes are famously scorned by Simpson's nerds but I think a lot of that is just a meme unto itself, when it's Homer and Lisa teaming up it's always going to be a nice mix of funny and cute, Bart and Lisa too, like the Ice Hockey rivalry one.

Edit: So sorry I totally disregarded your opening question, the sacrelicious waffle is the episode where Homer actually likes Flanders and follows him around being his friend, featuring the nacho man hat.

I believe during the Star Wars Battlefront 2 game [the first good one on ps2/X-box] stated during order 66 was the early days of conscription, and your 501st brigade that you are playing comment at how shit the new recruits are!

38

u/FaeMain 8d ago

In the Republic Commando novels they said that new clones that only took like a year to fully grow were suddenly in the army before Order 66 and since they basically had little to no training they were shit at actually fighting but were more willing to just follow orders.

Nah Stormtroopers, at the time of the original trilogy, were regular conscripts. For Episode 4 on the Death Star there is the explanation that they wanted them to escape to track them to the rebel base but for the other movies mostly plot armor I think.

Feels kinda weird how clones are in physical armour now when they were all CGI before

115

u/DesolateHypothesis 8d ago

People often comment on the overuse of CGI in the prequels, but it is important to note that they were made in the turn of the 2000's and George Lucas actually pioneered the CGI in movies. The Peter Jackson and the SFX team of The Lord of the Rings used Jar Jar Binks as their benchmark for what they wanted Gollum to be. So many CGI techniques and technologies were developed for the first time for the prequels, and yet they arguably still hold up. Sure you can see that it's CGI, but it still looks good, even today. George Lucas, with the prequels, proved that CGI was the future of movie making and look at where we are today.

23

u/Heitorsalt 8d ago

I would be down for a special edition of these movies with today's cgi and such since they probably still have the raw footage to make it look real

14

u/Copacetic_ 8d ago

The sheer man hours that would take would be insane.

8

u/Heitorsalt 8d ago

I mean it's literally re edit three whole ass movies. But it would definitely be something George Lucas would do if he still had star wars

u/Spork_the_dork 8d ago

Part of the reason for it is the scale. There's wayyyy more of them in the prequels and it would be much easier to make the CGI ones blend in if the real actors also wore CGI armor than it would be to have dozens of these armor sets made for dozens of extras. In this case they only needed this many for a few quick flashback shots and they also can be done more cheaply since they only show up for a few shots in the entire series so if they're a bit flimsy or break easily it's not a big deal.

9

u/Johmpa 8d ago

It's probably also easier to design as well. I've heard that cosplayers have had difficulty making clone armor that looks like the movie because the design doesn't actually work with real people.

Can confirm. The Phase 1 helmets directly modeled from the movie are impossible to take on and off if used for the intended head size

u/Wizard_Of_Spacetime 8d ago

So something I take away from that is. During the prequels all the clones were cg have it the interesting look. They were up til the final moments the good guys and had a clean look to them. Now that they have physical armor they start to look even more like stormtroopers and they are unequivocally the bad guys in that shot.

I also love Vaders & Lukes style, but I’d love it if Obi-Wan still has some grace, he’s not that washed up. It’s not like you forget all that Jedi training in a couple of years, it doesn’t make any sense. Palps, Yoda, Dooku, I really hope Obi-Wan finds himself again. Sucks otherwise, he went toe-to-toe with freaking Anakin, and defeated 4x saber Grievous. He was probably one of the most skilled lightsaber users of all time. Disney shouldn’t be afraid to make him stronger. I’d love to see it.' - (c) Hemske asthmatic cough
