Just in time for the holiday of Passover (or Easter, if that's your thing), "The Simpsons" are headed to the Holy Land!
In this Sunday's (March 28) episode (titled "The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed"), Homer's usual buffoonery leads to a series of unlikely events that find the family smack in the middle of Flanders' bible study trip to Jerusalem. Although Homer, per usual, is more interested in the breakfast buffet than history or culture, the family soon meets up with an eccentric tour guide named Jacob (voiced by Sacha Baron Cohen).
However, Jacob's unique presentation style soon turns Homer on to the wonders of Israel's famous monuments. Homer soon warms up to the trip and, in the words of the press release, "proves he is not beyond salvation." We'll have to see what Duffman has to say about that.
"The Simpsons" airs, as you're no doubt aware, Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Stick around for the equally awesome (if not more so) "Family Guy," which this week features guest spots from Elijah Wood (the short fellow from "Lord of the Rings") and "Family Guy" repeat-offender James Woods, both as themselves. Charlie Sheen also guest stars, but the Fox press release did not elaborate on his character's role — though it's sure to be hilarious mildly offensive episode.
The episode, called "Brian Griffin's House of Payne," will air at 9 p.m. on those same Fox stations.
