According to a comments on uk.media.tv.simpsons, this was
just Matt Groening in a Q&A session with Jonathan Ross (a big Simpsons fan).
Apparently it was judged a disappointment.
Playhouse Theatre, London, 17 Aug
They performed Lisa's Date With Density.
In between the featured episodes, including two new ones
Bart to the Future and
Behind the Laughter,
there was a so-so Simpsons A-Z of clips, voiced by Dan Castellaneta,
and clips of interviews with the cast of the live shows.
There was also a strange and cringeworthy set of shots from families around the UK aiming to prove
that The Real Simpsons are all around us!
Dan Castellaneta mentioned
Two Cars in Every Garage, Three Eyes on Every Fish as
one of his favourites (Burns runs for Governor).
Nancy Cartwright mentioned Bart speaking French as being a particularly memorable bit - she
had special coaching to learn that part quickly
(The Crepes of Wrath).
Yeardley Smith mentioned
Lisa's Substitute as being particularly touching
(Lisa gets a crush on a supply teacher).
Harry Shearer said his favourite episodes were
One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish
(Homer eats a Blowfish) and
El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Homer
(Homer and the psychadelic chilli).
