  • The Simpsons continues its annual Halloween tradition with the tenth installment of the "Treehouse of Horror" series.

    Though our alien friends Kang and Kodos only have a brief appearance in this episode, it's actually a very well done appearance. What also makes it work is Lisa's very good question of what exactly they have to do with Halloween to begin with. The tenth episode of "Treehouse of Horror" does contain some very good segments. The first, while being quite good, does have a major flaw. If Ned is in fact immortal because he's a werewolf, then why did he not just reveal that once Marge ran him over? The scenes of Homer on the roof with Ned's "dead" body and at the funeral are well done, but the aforementioned question hangs over them. Also, the ending was a little drawn out. The second segment is the best of the three. Lucy Lawless does a very good job in her guest appearance. The climactic battle between Stretch Dude and Clobber Girl and The Collector brings back memories of the old "Batman" series with Adam West and Bert Ward. Loads of fun for sure. The final segment is helped out the most by it's guest appearance by the late Dick Clark. However I did not care for how the catastrophe was set up. When Carl mentioned Homer was the plant's "Y2K compliance officer" it could not have been more obvious that chaos would ensue. Overall, "Treehouse of Horror X" is quite entertaining. Definitely worth your time.
