    Don't forget, folks! Simpsons start their new season with the annual Treehouse of Horror episode! Let's hope for a much funnier season then the previous 2.

    Yeah fingers crossed. The commercials make it out to be a copy cat of the Norm MacDonald death episode of Family Guy, though. It's never a good sign when something copies from the works that it once inspired.

    Still, I'm glad the Treehouse of Horror episode seems to actually be about Halloween this year. The last couple haven't had anything to do with the Halloween archtypes.

    I set my DVR, so I just hope that the football game doesn't run over and screws up the recording.

    A bit of a downer overall (not nearly as funny as the previous seasons) but still better than most crap on TV.

    Could have been better, could have been worse. I got a good laugh when Homer as death killed the bum in Ms. Hoover's class and you could hear all the kids shouting YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY! Sadly, it did seem to borrow a bit much from the "Family Guy" Episode where Peter takes over for death, what makes it even worse, is that the Simpsons have taken some not too friendly Jabs at "Family Guy" You can hear Al Jean repeatedly reference Family Guy in S3 Commentaries and it seems that between the lines, he does not care for the show very much

    Good first third. Wasn't a fan of the Frink episode or the time episode.

    i thought it was quite solid.

    i thought the frink one was weakest.

    The 1st was the best with the 2nd coming in at 3rd and the 3rd being the 2nd best (I sound like a Tarantino flick). Even though the 1st was a blatant ripoff of the Family Guy death episode, I still got a lot of kicks out of it.

    I thought the third segment was the best, but overall, the best Halloween episode for several years. Certainly better than those dolphins. And as the past few Simpsons seasons have all gotten better as they went along, this is a very good sign.

    "Does that mean they won't cancel the Jim Belushi show? No!"

    Heh

    Tony Blair will voice a character in an ep this season. Cool.

    I liked Kang & Kodos complaining about a Halloween episode airing in November near the beginning. Art imitating life. [​IMG]

    Another art imitating life is when Lisa pushed the red button on the stopwatch, and they all turned into TV guide covers! That had me, knowing how TV guide made these "special collectors covers" to boost sales.

    Having Jerry Lewis doing the voice of Frink's father was great. The Nobel Prize ceremony was kind of funny, although it was similar to South Park's version of it. All in all I enjoyed the episode, I liked the opening with everybody fighting and killing each other, good stuff.

    A bit hit and miss for me....the premiere of King of the Hill with Brad Pitt as Boomhauer's brother was good though.

    I missed Arrested Development. Oh well, everyone says it is great, and it is on Fox, so it shoould be getting cancelled right about.....now.

    "It's Patti, chump!"

    That one rivals, "Help me Jeebus!" I was convulsed with laughter when I heard it. Hell, I almost get convulsed with laughter just thinking about it.

    Comic book guy with a lightsaber made me stop the tape and rewind to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. Funniest moment ever
