Season 15 Finale 05/23/04: Fraudcast News

Simpsons News — Posted 24 May, 2004 by Scott

Lisa is going to read a poem at the town's celebration of their natural landmark "Geezer Rock," but Homer who believes he is doing the right thing removes a bush from the landmark that causes it to fall apart. Mr. Burns is caught in the landslide and Smithers fears he is lost. Lisa is disappointed that no one got to hear her poem and Marge suggests that she get it published. To Smithers' delight, Mr. Burns has survived the landslide by slithering his way out however; he is annoyed to find out that no one missed him when they thought he was lost. He decides to buy every media outlet in town. Lisa distributes the first issue of her own newspaper the "The Red Dress Press," which is a success. Now she has to get out a second issue and she enlists the help of her fellow children. Continue...

Meanwhile, Mr. Burns has taken control of all the media outlets in Springfield, except one, her newspaper. Mr. Burns tries to seduce Lisa into selling out but she won't give up. Now Mr. Burns starts to play hardball, he cuts the power to the Simpson home. Principal Skinner offers Lisa the use of an old mimeograph machine, which gets her latest issue out. Mr. Burns talks with Homer to get the dirt on Lisa, that Homer readily supplies and Burns uses this information against her. Lisa is ready to give up and Homer realizing what he's done responds by printing a newspaper of his own. Homer's paper inspires others to think to begin to think for themselves and soon everyone is printing their own newspaper.

Couch: There is no living room and the couch is replaced by a bench at a Japanese bus stop, where the family's TV is also located. The various family members fly on screen dressed as different characters from popular Japanese shows: Homer is Ultraman Tiga; Bart is Astroboy, Lisa is Sailor Moon; Marge is Princess from Battle of the Planets and Maggie is Pikachu from Pokémon.

When Burns says indoor plumbing killed his mother, she must have died since the episode "Homer the Smithers", where she still was alive in a nursing home.

Bill and Marty (The guys in the radio station) had the wrong voices. Bill had Marty's voice and Marty had Bill's.

Near the end, Barney has his own newspaper's and in his newspaper bag if you look closey you can see a Duff bottle but he stopped drinking beer in "Days of Wine and D'oh'ses"
