Somehow the world breathlessly awaits The Simpsons Lego episode, forgetting briefly that the show has only provided mild amusement and comparative disappointment for nigh on a hundred years now—proving the widely held theory that angry geeks are actually optimists at heart. The episode airs May 4, and the below teaser finally shows exactly what the episode will look like, in action. (Pretty much exactly as you thought, plus a bunch of small print.) This was all foretold in the Prophecies, of course, which claimed that by season 31, every episode would be some kind of crossover. I, for one, welcome our new Lego overlords.
