  • The Simpsons may be past their Golden Years, But they still deliver!

    Most of Season 24 has been very bland in my opinion, in fact 'Hardly Kirking' has been the only decent episode. I admit this episode is one of the best of this season. There are several things that pleased me, Ned's parents are still beatnicks and don't stray from their original personalities and it was good to see Lisa get a taste of her own medicine, she is ANNOYING! Overall, i did enjoy this episode.moreless
  • The Punch!

    8.0
    I actually gasped out loud when Ned punched Homer.



    Overall I think the storytelling got a little choppy in the end, but good episode. A lot of good moments, like the Bible passages and just the mere fact that Ned's beatnik parents showed up again. Would love to see an origin story sometime for how Flanders ended up so religious.
  • Ned finally punched Homer

    I have 1 word to describe this. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!! Finally!!! It took Ned over 20 years to finally Homer what hd deserves. The b story with Lisa was good too. One of the better on this season.

    • Show Title: King Kong Homer climbing to the top of Manhattan's Empire State Building, grabbing a three-eyed crow as it flies nearby.
      Billboard Gag: Cletus' Road Kill Diner: It's fender-pickin' good! (with Cletus holding a run over possum on a plate)
      Chalkboard Gag: Bart writing "I'm sorry I broke the blackboard" on a white board with a black marker.
      Couch Gag: In this extended Plymptoons short titled "Noir" (by Bill Plympton), Homer and Marge rendezvous at a seedy hotel for a secret tryst, but are interrupted when Bart and Lisa intrude, leaving the four to draw weapons at each other in a dark room. The standoff ends when Maggie turns on the lights and the four are seen in a friendlier manner. Now in a more normal color segment, Lisa has her saxophone, Marge is serving cool drinks, Bart has a small pack of popcorn, and Homer is holding a donut. In the next shot, they're sitting normally on the couch until Maggie fires a machine gun with bullets flying in the air.
