      The Musk episode was garbage because it was like the Gaga one, shilling [celebnamehere] that everyone swoons over them, at worst doing jokes where [celebnamehere] is just soo quirky

    I wouldn't call this episode badly aged; imo it goes full circle. It's a fascinating time capsule that gives mankind a look at a moment in time when the most beloved actor on the planet was Mel Gibson. Culture really was like that at one point; and the fact that this is from Tbe Simpsons makes it even more stark just how much things can change culturally from one moment to the next.

    It's easily one of the most fascinating episodes of The Simpsons ever produced.

    I’m either too under a rock or too young to understand what’s interesting here, what did actors do that makes irony

      Mel Gibson had a few public meltdowns that pushed him away from the Hollywood spotlight, while Robert Downey Jr got his life back in order and became one of Hollywood's highest paid stars.

        I thought it was just the one time where he got openly antisemetic.

        Mel Gibson paid RDJ's production insurance bond after RDJ got out of prison. He wanted to work but nobody would insure him because of his criminal record, so Gibson stumped up the fee. That led within a few years to RDJ becoming Iron Man, as well as making movies like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Tropic Thunder that returned him to prominence in the first place.

        Gibson - who has also had problems with alcohol, drugs and rehab - understood how hard it would be for RDJ to find work at all in film and television if nobody was prepared to insure his productions, and wanted to give him one last chance. It's kind of sweet, until you realize it's a normal words but a horse guy thing for public disaster area Mel Gibson to do.

          Are you implying it's like Bojack just trying to buy himself peace of mind by doing RDJ a solid rather than becoming less of a piece of shit?

            I mean yeah, Gibson hasn't changed for shit over the years. He's rich enough that he can just power through whatever his latest drunken rampage is, whether it's an awful, awful movie or shitting in a newborn's mouth.

              What's he done lately though besides awful movies? Most Mel Gibson controversy seems to be that people don't care about his drunken tirades from 15 years ago whenever he drops a forgettable straight to netflix movie.

    The Musk episode is a bit funny in hindsight. It was a Lisa Goes Gaga style celebrity ball licking where they treated him like Tony Stark. It is a much funnier episode now that Tesla is crashing and burning, most of his big ideas have never come to fruition and his public image is in the toilet.

      Why that episode?

        New York was destroyed by chuds in 2025

        Anything with Bill Cosby made before the 2010s.

        I’m not sure anything can top the Jimmy Savile story in the Beano.

        Cosby was the subject of allegations since the 1980s. It was one of those open-secret things but even a few years before the Constand case there were open jokes about it; I think even Family Guy did a bit on him between Covington and Constand, probably referencing the Covington allegation. He was making money for everyone and standards were lower, so he got away with it, kept getting away with it.

        Similarly with Savile - it's impossible to overstate how beloved he was at the height of his popularity, but that was decades after the first allegations to police. Again, standards were lower - pretty much incel shit on the part of the police investigation - so the initial credible allegations which could have destroyed him led nowhere. That led to everyone who wanted to make money off him trying to make money off him, even by association. Of course it's regrettable in hindsight, but even with open secrets or well-known rumors there's always going to be those who don't know because they're too remote and those who play it safe because the allegations haven't been substantiated yet.

    The episode seemed at the time like the epitome of everything that was wrong with Mike Scully, like Marge farting, Homer having absolutely no redeeming qualities, and the truly epic sucking up to Gibson (who, not surprisingly, ended up producing a flop sitcom Scully and his wife created after leaving The Simpsons).

    So ironically, the things that aged badly make the episode age better, because now at least there is something memorable about it.
