Storyline

Homer is arrested by the military after trying to sabotage expensive children's birthday parties and made to listen to his father recounting his days in the air force, where he broke the sound barrier and met his future wife. Bart takes up smoking electronic cigarettes to impress Milhouse's cousin, who is visiting from the Netherlands, but ultimately decides that she is not worth impressing. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Homer recites a long list of what he calls movies about a dystopian future: The Hunger Games (2012), Edge of Tomorrow (2014), Oblivion (2013), Elysium (2013), Snowpiercer (2013), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), Ender's Game (2013), The Road (2009), World War Z (2013), Children of Men (2006), After Earth (2013), I Am Legend (2007), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), The Maze Runner (2014), District 9 (2009), The Purge (2018), Looper (2012), Cloud Atlas (2012), Divergent (2014), Insurgent (2015), The Island (2005), Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, and Chappie (2015). All of these are indeed movies about post-apocalyptic or otherwise extremely pessimistic visions of the future--with the notable exception of "Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play," which as of 2017 has not yet been made into a film. Instead, it is an experimental 2012 stage play by Anne Washburn that imagines a world after an unnamed cataclysm in which the world's survivors rebuild their society and culture around reenacting old episodes of The Simpsons.

Weakest Episode of this Season by Far,
22 May 2015 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Let's go Fly a Coot is a decent Simpsons episode with a storyline that, I hate to admit, is disappointing and not what I've come to expect from this series, but it does have several funny scenes. It has a good few funny moments and it's not the weakest episode the show has ever done, I enjoyed Grampa's role and his dialogue was certainly the funniest, also the scene that parodied The Expendables is the highlight of the whole episode. I didn't feel like it trusted either of it's story lines, neither of them are the main story or the side story, they just kind of jump back and fourth, without either stories feeling they were touched upon as much as they could have. Both of the stories were also, admittedly, not up to standard, the one with the Air Force was promising but it got a little bit ridiculous, and the story with Milhouse's cousin was a disaster from the get go, the constant use of e- cigarettes is unnecessary, with unlikeable voice acting done by Game of Thrones Carice van Houten, who was probably only picked because she has the same surname of Milhouse. Let's go Fly a Coot is not terrible, but it's certainly disappointing and the weakest moment of the twenty sixth season.

The family learn about Grandpa's days in the Air Force while Bart begins to fall for Milhouse's cousin.
