THE SIMPSONS MARATHON
September 1, 2014  | By David Bianculli

FXX, Check local listings

 
This is Day 12, the final day, of FXX’s Simpsons every-episode marathon, one of the smartest and most successful cable network promotional stunts in years. The marathon concludes at 11:30 p.m. ET with episode No. 552, Season 25’s “The Yellow Badge of Cowardge,” from last May. But before that, there are two episodes today that deserve special mention. At noon ET, there’s 2013’s “The Saga of Carl,” a Season 24 spot-on parody of a truly unusual subject: Homer and company go to Iceland to learn the story of their despondent friend Carl, and even visit the Blue Lagoon. Then, at 10:30 p.m. ET, there’s the Season 25 episode “Brick Like Me,” the inventive Lego episode from 2014.
