  • Marge becomes worried when she learns Lisa has befriended a competitive eater. Also, Bart's good deed for Snake causes problems for him.

    1.0
    An absolutely horrible episode. Usually when I review an episode unfavorably I try to point out at least one positive highlight of it in order to say that the episode is not all bad. Try as I might I can't say anything positive about this abysmal episode. Zach Galifanakis guest appearance was beyond horrible. An absolutely terrible performance. I am stunned as to why the producers of "The Simpsons" would think that competitive eating is a good thing to feature on this show. Especially when the person involved in the "sport" is so unappealing. Definitely the worst episode of the season and one of the worst of the series as a whole.moreless

    The Simpson's is with out a doubt the greatest comedy to come out of America,



    it has covered everything, from everyday life, endless special guests. to parody's of famous movies. but now 16 years on and many laughs later the Simpson's has become a house hold name. But now i think the creators are running out of ideas, the jokes from the new episodes are going from classic to desperate and kind of dumb i think they should get the movie over with and then finally close the book of the greatest piece of animated comedy.moreless

    • The opening title sequence is seen as more like a video game (including graphics), that parodies Minecraft.  The title is seen as Simcraft (Parodies are easy!).  The sequence simply shows the family walking through various Springfield sites before they all enter through the garage.  They calmly sit on the couch, then Moe (seen as a green mechanical bar machine mirroring creepers from that game) asks how they're doing before he explodes and blows the house apart, creating a big hole to the basement and showing various furniture in other parts of the home.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The brand name of the bottle of cologne that Marge looks at in the bathroom is Papa Don't Reek.  The name is a take on the song "Pappa Don't Preach" by Madonna.


      The song is featured on her 1986 album True Blue.
