“I’m not sure how accurate a portrayal of competitive gaming we can expect from the show that gave us The Boot, but if nothing else Riot’s participation could lead to a few fun Easter eggs, and maybe a surprise cameo or two. It could be fun—at least until Lisa ruins everything with her dreary commitment to ‘reason’ and ‘rational thinking.’ The episode will air on March 17,” reports PC Gamer.
