Finishing “Politically Inept with Homer Simpson” & “The D’oh-cial Network” and Starting “Moe Goes from Rags to Riches”

2012 has been pretty busy right from the get-go.

We started off by airing PABF03 “Politically Inept with Homer Simpson” on January 8. We actually finished dubbing this episode back on December 13, so it was really nice to be so far ahead of the airdate. That luxury will be rapidly evaporating as we get deeper into 2012 and more episodes start airing back-to-back. D’oh! There’s more to read…

Wrapping Up 2011

After working nearly non-stop since mid-October, this week slows down a little as we head into the Christmas/New Year’s period. We’ve been having many “finals” of late… last Friday we had our final scoring session of 2011 for PABF03 “Politically Inept, With Homer Simpson”; tonight (Tuesday, 12/13/11) we’ll have our final dub of the year working on “Politically Inept”; later this week We’ll have our final music spotting session for 2011 as we begin work on PABF04 “The D’oh-cial Network”. More details on that episode next time, after I’ve spotted it. D’oh! There’s more to read…

“The Ten-Per-Cent Solution” and “Holidays of Future Passed”

I’m a little behind in my reporting on the episodes we’re working on. I was afraid this would happen once we hit November “sweeps”. This is one of the times of the season where I’m juggling three, four or even five episodes at once in various stages of production. This past Monday we spotted NABF18 “Holidays of Future Passed” and scored PABF02 “The Ten-Per-Cent Solution”. D’oh! There’s more to read…

Starting work on “The Book Job”

NetworksIt’s the quiet before the storm that happens about this time every year. We’ve had it relatively “easy” schedule-wise since the end of August, spotting and scoring an episode every two weeks. D’oh! There’s more to read…

A Near-Death Experience

Woo-Hoo!That’s what it felt like this week. Maybe that sounds a bit dramatic, but the news just came so suddenly. Ever since this season began and people would ask me how much longer the show would last, I’d tell them that this was the final season of the actors’ current contracts and that, for the show to continue, a new deal would have to be struck sometime between December and next February. D’oh! There’s more to read…

Starting “Treehouse of Horror XXII” and finishing “The Falcon and the D’ohman”

Kang & KodosI’m in the thick of it now. We spotted this year’s Halloween show on Thursday, September 22. There will be 38 cues in this episode. That’s more than the average for our usual count, but par for the course when it comes to the Halloween show. We’ve had as many as 52 cues for one of the “Treehouse” specials. Once again we have four stories in the episode, a recent development when FOX added another commercial break a couple of years ago. Let’s see… what can I say without saying too much? D’oh!
