Although you may not be able to teach a complete class using this kind of approach, a high school or middle school student could be enticed during an introduction for a unit or an anticipatory set for a lesson. Students would be excited to see that math is incorporated into a silly TV show they watch. The questions created for each of the math scenes in The Simpsons are thought provoking and allow students to think critically about a topic. The questions posed 3D vs. 2D I believe will intrigue students and is something that is visually seen in the episode. Also, showing students how pi is incorporated into The Simpsons and then following up with the questions that are given on the site can engage students in a topic that might usually be bland.Technical Remarks:I only find problems with finding the exact Simpsons episode that incorporates the math. There are collections but some of them are missing episodes.
