    Best gag: Homer receives a Christmas gift of the first season of Magnum, P.I. on DVD! I immediately thought of HTF! [​IMG]

    I'm just thinking about all the Star Trek fans that said "Hey, photon torpedoes don't come out of the deflector dish!"

    "TV and nightmares have joined forces to teach me an important lesson."

    "One problem at a time, boy."

    Another well written episode. [​IMG]

    Awesome episode.

    "Double Bacon Genius Burger"

    I wish I could remember the line about Scotty seing himself in the future, that was classic.

    When The California Prunes came on I laughed my ass off!

    This was the second week in a row where Homer listened to Lisa and look where it got him. [​IMG]

    I really, really hated this one. The gags didn't connect, the CG interludes on the TV were worst than pointless and the ending of the episode seemed to mock all the genuine emotion the show had reaped in the previous seasons's holiday specials. Maybe I'm not cool enough for the show or whatever, but this episode almost came across as a betrayal to me.

    I should have know the decent run of the last few episodes was going to end.

    Great opening couch gag. Homer as Ultraman, Bart as Astroboy, but I didn't pick up on the rest. Any one?

    I liked the "Operation" game with Krusty as the patient, especially the line about "tweezers on my wang"

    To me, this was the best episode in the last year [​IMG]

    Some of the TV interludes reminded me of The Family Guy.

    I liked the expanding waistline set to the 2001 music:

    Bye toes! See you in the spring!

    Just as an update, the picture was posted in another thread.

    Lisa was dressed as Sailor Moon.

    Maggie was dressed as Pikachu.

    I also thought it was a great episode but the CG/Stop motion/whatever puppets were disconcerting. Not to mention not funny.
