    I thought this was the best episode in a long time.

    Hands down, my favorite Simpsons scene from the last five seasons has to be Bart, Lenny, and Carl doing a line dance for "Afternoon Delight." [​IMG]

    It was ok, but not great. I definately thought last week's was stronger. This one seemed to be a hodgepodge of elements of previous episodes. Example, Homer making a trip to to dump to introduce a plot element is remenicent of the "Mr. Sparkle" Episode. I thought that this episode invoked memories of "Call of the Simpsons" From Season one as well. Obviously the bear as a threat was a reminder of the episode where Springfield tries to deport immigrants. There was even a joke that seemed very close to treading on a "Family Guy" Gag. When the go to the Wal*Mart spoof store, there was a pyramid stack of Pianos. This was similar to where Lois Buys a two for one Piano deal at a Costco-esque store. I'd let it go, but the "Death" segment from the Halloween episode treaded on "Family Guy" as well.

    I did like the "Kitchen Carnival" Gag where you thought Marge was going to be dissapointed but loved the gift. I got a laugh out of it as well because I know my girlfriend would kill for something like that as well (loves cotton candy and candy apples. etc.) Liked how Lenny and Carl yanked the batteries out of Homer's bear tracker to listen to "Afternoon Delight" as well

    There were a few laugh out loud moments, like seeing Abe as a greeter, and the bear getting eaten by the elephant. Not a bad episode per say, but last week's was much much better.

    This episode was one of the funniest in a long time. I'm surprised no one's mentioned the "Betamax, Laserdiscs, Reserved for DVDs" signs for the scrap heaps in the junkyard. I laughed my ass off at the "Yes children, suckle on my giant sugar ball" line. I liked the jab at the "liberal media conspiracy", and Lisa's line when Homer was choking Bart (I forget exactly what it was) had me cracking up. Good amount of physical humor too.

    "Aah! Ants! Aah! Birds! Aah! Cats! Aah! Flanderseses!"
    "I was saving sugar for my wedding day!"

    I thought it was the best episode so far this year, and probably the last too. Quite a few laugh out loud moments for me. My favorite being the "suckle at my giant sugar ball" line.

    i thought it was wierd, in the part where bart tells homer that they woud rather have a sissy at home than a dead hero, in the commercials before the show came on, homer says, oh you know exactly the right thing to say to MAKE ME WANT TO SQUEEZE YOUR VOCAL CORDS or somethign to that effect, but in the show, it was a completely differnt 3 word line (dont remember the line right now, just remember it was different.)

    I liked that dump scene with the signs. The bad thing, it's true! With HDTV on the horizon, DVDs will become obsolete faster than Laserdiscs.

    in retrospect, i realize this really was a pretty good ep.

    unfortunately, i think i've been tainted with so many lack-luster ep's that i just didn't realize how good this ep was.

    the dvd pile was hilarious...i immediately thought of htf.

    Homer with the cotton candy afro was the absolute best part of the show.
