  • In the words of Comic Book Guy, this is absolutely "Worst Episode Ever"!

    1.0
    Homer's selfishness is blatant throughout this episode, as he chickens out multiple times in giving his kidney to Grandpa Abe. Homer also refuses to stop at the gas station when Grandpa needs to pee during a road trip taken by the family. All of the humor seems forced and contrived--I did not laugh at a single joke anywhere when I watched this for the very first time on FOX in 1998. I was thinking, "What were the writers smoking?" This, along with the "King of the Hill" episode "Joust Like A Woman", are candidates for the TV Hall of Shame, alongside many poorly thought out turkeys such as "Mr. Terrific" and "My Mother, The Car".
