D'oh! The Simpsons Live Episode Was A Total Flop, To Be Honest
A while back, we reported that Homer Simpson would be coming to you LIVE for the first time, in an ambitious experiment not previously attempted by the show's animators.
Motion capture technology would help Homer say things in real time, during a three minute segment of an episode - kinda like this:
Now it's happened, and if you believe anything on Twitter, the mighty have truly fallen:
I love The Simpsons, but that whole live thing that just happened...never again. Don't ever do that again. Live chat? Ok. Live TV. Nope.

Being one of the best animated series of all time, the show had a long way to drop if tripped up.
That live segment of the Simpsons was pretty awkward.

And uh, judging by fans' responses, some people think Homer's shoelaces were tied together.
Nice try on that whole live segment thing, The Simpsons. I'm sure you all did your best.

Others had the pleasure of tweeting in questions with #HomerLive and having them answered by the yellow man himself:

And EVERYONE lolled when Bender from Futurama showed up (again):

Either way, listening to Homer stumble over his words, adding a few 'umms' and 'ahhs' in there was pretty interesting. "It only took us 27 years to do what they could do in 1954," Lisa Simpson (Yeardley Smith) said in the introduction. Homer added: "This is the last episode of The Simpsons. Just kidding, The Simpsons will never end." We very much hope that's true.
