Fox is rerunning the Michael Jackson episode (aka the John Jay Smith episode, or the Leon Kompowsky episode) of The Simpsons
. Which is nice (but I'd rather they re-ran the 'Black or White' video, complete with Simpsons
intro before the Macauley-Culkin-and-George-Wendt intro), and also pretty neat (I can't remember another time that such an old episode got re-ran in prime time).
But it's like they've got a bad copy or something--things keep dropping out and stuff. Which makes me wonder how that could happen, since, at this point, they could just play it off a goddamn DVD or something. Which, in turn, makes me wonder whether they're airing the full episode, or the butchered-for-syndication one.
