Definitely better than last week's episode, but still not that great.

Was the intro an homage to something or was it just strange for the sake of being strange?

The intro was straight out of Get Smart.

Cool episode I thought! Loved "Animal Survivor" and the chimps manning the TV satellite. Posted Image

It was neat to hear the Canadian references in this show. The hometown of this episode's writer, Tim Long, is Exeter, Ontario (about 45 minutes south of where I live). Posted Image

Just thought you'd all like that useless bit of trivia.

As the original owner of the Buffy sig, I must state that I had many of the laughs.

i thought the quip about the Capital City mascot spending $80 million dollars of his own money to be elected was funny.

I have to believe that is a comment on the Texas race for Governer. Tony Sanchez lost the election after spending that much money.

solid episode

i dont like how people continue to diss the Simpsons...give each episode some time to digest, take in a few reruns then re-evaluate them in a few years.

I love the simpsons, have been a big fan since it started.

Luckily there have been more hits then misses when it comes to each episode, but last nite's show did not click with me. I laughed a few times at the start of the episode.

I loved the Animal Survivor saying that the Antelope and Lion alliance had failed:

and they show the lion eating the Antelope (or was it a Gazelle??)


But after that the whole sequence of putting Bart and Lisa in the 3rd grade just fell apart for me. The 3rd grade teacher and the students were to generic and had no personality to them, expect the teacher displayed at moments it had some humor to the character.

And what i mean by being generic is that they had to keep introducing Nelson into scenes to give it that Simpson's feel. Its like they didn't have enough confidence in the NEW characters that were there and that they were not able to hold the scene.

If there be one of them who does not follow the way of the Snitzil, let that one go and do not throw bowling balls at them.

We're talking about a TV show, not a bottle of wine.

I liked the episode, a lot more than most recent episodes, actually. As a Get Smart fan, I have to say that the intro was excellent.

A fairly funny episode, and one that thankfully didn't focus on Homer. I loved the Nelson gags. They need to get back to focusing on the regular characters instead of stunt-casting.

This actually quite the breath of fresh air. I thought that the jokes in this weeks episode were funny. I think I laughed twice or something and that hasn't happened with the Simpsons for the past 2 seasons.
