The recent airing of the eighteenth episode of "Treehouse of Horror" made me want to go back to the beginning to see, what I believe, is the best episode in this long running series. The segments are very well written and very funny. I especially like how the first segment takes a well known horror story and does something strikingly original with it. The introduction of alien characters Kang and Kodos, who have become a staple of the "Treehouse of Horror" series, work well here too. The producers of this episode saved the best for last with the excellent telling of Poe's The Raven. Excellent.
