Raising the question of gay marriage on The Simpsons?
That's not news. The upcoming episode information page at SNPP.com
has had the summary of the unknown-production-number episode in question for several months now; at one point, it might have been part of last season's run.
I can't remember this information ever being substantially inaccurate, which makes the "Ooooh, you'll never guess" act the producers are pulling now (and subsequent media attention) somewhat curious. But, then, I suppose that's the point of niche information sources; everyone who actually cares about what next week's or next month's episode is about would have known already.
I'm not sure what my point is, exactly. Something about the distributed journalistic capacity of a knowledgeable populace? Idunno.
