'The Simpsons' Had A Picture Perfect Idea Of The 'Game Of Thrones' Fiery Ending
With over 30 years, 680 episodes, 140 writers and counting, it's no wonder that the typewriter monkeys behind The Simpsons have been able to predict some of the best of times and the blurst of times. Stay loosey-goosey enough with your interpretation and The Simpsons can be credited with predicting the rise of President Trump, Olympic gold for the US curling team and the (near) mass of the Higgs Boson particle. They even managed to foresee a group pandemic panickers being scared off the streets by murder hornets. Just like real life (sadly)!
But very occasionally, that broad scattershot approach shows a glimpse of the future with laser-like precision. We all like to forget the disastrous last season of Game of Thrones where every character behaved so irrationally it was like they had finally succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning from all the dragon farts. A season that then jumped and then BBQ'd the shark when Queen Daenerys decided to burn the biggest city in Westeros because of bell-related PTSD.

And if that scene looked mighty familiar, even as you were watching it with slacked jaws, it might be because you had been keeping up with The Simpsons. In its Game of Thrones parody episode "The Serfsons," the family stares impotently as a mad rider and his red dragon lay fiery waste to building after building.
