  • Parody of horror and comic

    The first act “I Know What You Diddily-Iddly-Did” was a great spoof to the famous horror movie. Homer trying to convince Maude that Ned died because of natural cause and throwing him of the roof is pretty hilarious. Very horrifying humor indeed and top in my list for THOT X. Next act “Desperately Xeeking Xena” is about the true meaning of Halloween…fancy costumes. Bart and Lisa gain superpowers because of the radioactive beam from the x-ray machine. The scene which made laugh is when Saddam Hussein appears in the "Stretch Boy and Clobber Girl" opening sequence, a real gag without a doubt, the main plot is where Lucy Lawless/Xena is kidnapped by the comic book guy to be his bride and collection (Matt Groening is one the collection) and its up to Stretch Boy and Clobber Girl to save day, but in the end its Xena who have to save them. The third act “Life's a Glitch, Then You Die” didn’t actually contribute to the THOH, maybe they made the story just for the Y2J new millennium, but it’s an o.k. act until they have spoiled the end (it’s the 3rd time this season) by rocketing into space.
