If this is not a dream sequence, I’m done with THE SIMPSONS!

Count me among the millions heartbroken by this report yesterday:

Homer and Marge Simpson to separate in season 27; Homer to fall in love with a pharmacist played by Lena Dunham

When a show has many years of character development to draw from, its writers should make episodes more and more believable. I’ve never understood why so many gleefully destroy their foundations with stunt plot twists instead. Homer’s unwavering devotion to Marge is the driving force of the series. It’s the underlying motivation for even the most outlandish situations, anchoring the comedy with something viewers can trust…or so we thought. Harry Shearer suddenly looks like a clairvoyant genius for leaving the show next year.
