One of my favorite things about October is that it brings the Halloween-themed TV episodes, and tonight Halloween hits the FOX Sunday lineup. The Simpsons opens the night with its annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode, which features homages to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Split, and Jurassic Park. This was originally going to be my recommendation for the night, until I checked out tonight’s episode of Bob’s Burgers. I always enjoy this series, but the Halloween episodes especially so. No other show seems to bring me back to the fun times of trick-or-treating as a child like this one does. Though the Belcher kids always have far more creative costumes and always get mixed up in some crazy adventure during their annual quest for candy. Tonight’s may be my favorite Halloween episode since the show’s first one back in season 3. Besides the ingenious costumes that pop up throughout, Gene has some hilarious one-liners, and there’s a really fun side plot involving Bob and Teddy.

On tonight’s episode of The Simpsons, “Treehouse of Horror XXIX,” Homer wins an oyster-eating contest against the mythical Cthulhu; Springfield is overrun by plant body-snatchers; Lisa finally snaps; Mr. Burns opens a retirement home with some Jurassic upgrades.

Then, in Bob’s Burgers, “Nightmare on Ocean Avenue Street,” the kids set out for their regular Halloween shenanigans, but when everyone’s candy bags start mysteriously disappearing, it’s up to Tina, Louise, and Gene to find the culprit.

To see the Halloween fun, tune in to FOX starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording God Friended Me, Family Guy, Supergirl, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, You, Camping, and Kidding.

So I’ve been watching the new Star Wars Resistance cartoon, ’cause I’m a Star Wars sci-fi nerd, and I’m trying to like it. I really am. But it’s kind of corny. It lacks the magic of Star Wars Rebels, or for that matter, ANY Star Wars content to date. And it feels like the animation is second-rate animators off Aladdin. The show takes place between RotJ & The Force Awakens, and it follows a dweeby young X-Wing pilot, Kazadu, who for some reason is sent to be a “spy” on a world that is mostly ocean. He lives on a settlement that is a base in the middle of the ocean, where pod racing seems to be the biggest pastime. If I haven’t scared you off of watching it forever, let me bring you up to speed on what went down last week.

Okay, so the one funny part of this show is Neeku, a green-skinned alien who takes everything 100% literally. He’s a lot like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, tbh. Last week after Kaz started running with the wrong speeder racers on the base, Neeku warned him they were just trouble. But Kaz persisted in being their friend. Until they stole from Kaz’s boss Yeagar. The “Correlian Hyper fuel” Kaz’s new friend Jayce stole almost got Jayce killed. But Kaz saved him regardless. Jayce, in true douche-canoe fashion, was mad that his ship blew up instead of being grateful to be alive. Feels so much more like Disney morals than Star Wars morals. Did I mention this show is probably gonna suck?

On tonight’s episode, “Fuel for the Fire,” Kaz befriends a sky racer named Rucklin who pressures him to take some rare and dangerous hyperfuel hidden in Yeager’s office.

Meet Rucklin tonight on Disney Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Supergirl, Kidding, Shameless, Bob’s Burgers, & Family Guy.
