...Jump The Shark! Just wanted to be the 1st one to say that!!!!
Ok..go back to watching the show!
It seemed like a preemptive apology for that episode. Act I was fairly good, but acts II and III were almost bad enough to pass for "Malcolm in the Middle." There was virtually no point to that episode. An episode centering more on Homer's comments on "Taxicab Confessions" would have been more entertaining.
Mike Scully wrote this episode and was credited as executive producer. I was hoping he was bounced off the staff considering the lackluster (by this show's standards) 12th season, and the fact that he allowed Britney Spears, Nsync and two "Friends" cast members to guest star. And I am one of those who did not automatically hate all episodes from the other seasons he was EP.
I thought Al Jean was the head EP starting a few episodes into last season.
Homer got his legs bitten off too!
Not a bad episode. A few laughs here and there. A especially liked Keith Richards' "Escaping to the Limo" class.
yeah, a few good gags, the first act was solid
i could do without the constant celebrity appearances
I actually thought it was funny, but only thanks to Homer, Elcis Costello and Keith Richards. I couldn't help think though that Homer complaining about never fulfilling his rock-star dreams seemed a little odd considering his previous success as a barbershop artist and human cannonball-receiver, when he easily could have transferred that fame into a rock career, I'm sure.
Just once I want to hear one of the passengers on HBO's Taxicab Confessions say what Homer said, "How'd you get such a crappy job? You a convict or a junkie?"
It was great to hear the Stones' Rip This Joint over the end credits. I hadn't heard it in a while and it made me go pull out my Made In The Shade CD.
The first ten minutes were funny, and then it fell apart.
A rather weak episode, but a few stray chuckles.
Count me among those who are weary of 'star-studded' episodes. Get back to the important characters...
...like Ralphie...and Smithers!
I agree with the above comments. They could have done a lot more with the rock camp setting, at least get some better jokes out of it. A missed opportunity.
