    I Know What You Diddly-Iddly Did:

    What I liked: Moe calling the Simpsons trying to get Maude's number, Homer singing at the start, Homer trying to convince Maude Ned is still alive, amongst other things.

    However, and I know this is non-canon, but still; I HATE the ending. One of my least favorite endings of the THOHs. I find it absolutely repulsive that Marge and the kids would run away from the werewolf Ned. Bart, Lisa and Maggie I could see, but Marge? Running away with them, and not caring about her husband? Sure, you could use the 'It's a Treehouse of Horror, it doesn't need to make sense', but still. I find it OOC of Marge to not care whether or not her husband lives or dies, despite it being a THOH episode. Desperately Xeeking Xena:

    What I liked: "Xena can't fly!", Comic Book guy as the collector.

    There's not much to this one. Standard comic book parody with a few laughs here and there.

    Life's a Glitch, then You Die:

    What I liked: the havoc that happens at midnight, the celebrities singing, the Simpsons thinking Krusty is dead, amongst other things.

    However, I dislike Lisa's "Mom!" She needs no second to think about it. I mean, obviously she loves her mom but this moment, despite the fact it is a THOH, shows she loves her mom more than anyone else- her father, her brother… I would have liked if she at least tried to get it so that Bart and Homer could go with her. But instead she instantly says "mom" like it's the easiest decision ever.

    Despite me hating the endings to the first segment, and this moment from the last, the THOH from season 11, is overall pretty good. Not one of my favorites, not one of my least favorites.
