Election Day Movies + TV. Mainly TV.

I'm not as big a fan of Bob Roberts or Wag the Dog as the rest of my household.

My favorites:

  • "A Head in the Polls", Futurama
  • "A Pharaoh to Remember", Futurama
  • "A Taste of Freedom", Futurama

    (Hey! Nov 4 is the release date for "Bender's Game"! Best Buy trip!)

  • "Marge vs. the Monorail", The Simpsons
  • "Last Exit to Springfield", The Simpsons
  • "Sideshow Bob Roberts", The Simpsons

    (The Simpsons has lots of election and political episodes but some of them are fairly lame. I'm looking at you, "Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish". "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington" is no prize either.)

  • "Geometry of Shadows", Babylon 5
  • "All The Duke's Men", The Critic (Although really this is not the best Critic episode by any stretch. Oops, I'm speaking Minnesotan again.)
  • V for Vendetta
  • The Mikado
  • The Gondoliers
  • About half each of Utopia, Ltd. and Iolanthe

... wow, this is one really cynical list.
