  • The Halloween special that became a yearly tradition.

    What a funny episode this was! "Bad Dream House" featured the Simpsons moving into a haunted house that refuses to live with them. My favorite part in this episode was where the family except Marge went around in a circle trying to kill each other. "Hungry are the Damned" is a parody on a Twilight Zone episode. Lisa ends up ruining the family's chance of becoming gods in another planet. My favorite part was the UFO struggling to pull Homer into the ship so it uses two beams. "The Raven" featured Homer as the tortured soul in the famous poem. My favorite part was when Bart replaced "Nevermore" with "Eat my shorts." This episode was very consistent and it set a high standard for future Halloween specials.

    Grade: A-
