    First half was hilarious, but the second half was OK.

    Honestly, this was pretty terrible. It didn't make any sense. They introduced some random new characters and ask them to be guardians. This isn't realistic...I know it's a cartoon but still, this is pretty far. They couldn't bring back Herb Powell for longer than a line? They couldn't use ANYONE we know in Springfield? Lame.

    it was so-so some funny moments but seems like the writers are losing it.

    It was a good episode. Shame we never got to actually see Herb Powell on there.

    We heard his voice for a few seconds. He said he was poor again.

    Yeah, I know. I wish he would've been seen, though.

    Indeed. That was a half-hearted cameo from a character we haven't seen in 20-plus years.

    Frankly, I thought this episode was okay. The third act was a bit rushed, and Rashida Jones was not utilized particularly well, but there have been weaker episodes in Season 24.

    Again, forgive me for relaunching an ancient topic.
