"In 'You Won't Believe What This Episode is About - Act Three Will Shock You!' (season 33, episode 14), The Simpsons attempted to parody the phenomenon of 'cancel culture' while also caricaturing podcast host Joe Rogan," says Cathal Gunning of Sunday's episode. "However, the resulting episode’s message was muddled and contradictory, while any attempted satirical slam on Rogan was defanged by the plot of the outing itself. Far from taking Rogan down a notch or offering any meaningful commentary on cancel culture, The Simpsons season 33 episode proved a profound failure with an indecipherable message and self-defeating execution."
