  • Ugh...

    Let's talk about how pointless this episode is.



    Both of the episode's plots deal with a man trying to win over a woman. Homer's plot is him trying to win over Marge. It takes half the plot to actually get somewhere,when he decides to turn their relationship into a sadomasochistic one (yes,all thanks to Fifty Shades Of Grey) .It makes for nothing special. Of course,Marge and Homer get back to normal.



    Same goes with Millhouse's plot. And it is even worse. Remember Little Orphan Millie?Remember how boring and mediocre that episode was?Well,let's rip it off and make it less intersting,because why the f**k not?!In case you didn't see the original,Millhouse's parents apparently die,causing him to become a gothic loner. The schoolgirls like him that way. Here,he watches A Streetcar Named Desire and acts like a gothic loner to impress Lisa,and the girls like him that way. Again,why rip off an episode that wasn't that great to begin with?Barely anything interesting happens in Millhouse's plot,and everything goes back to... You know what,why talk about it anymore?Who even cares?



    What else... the intro parodies Breaking Bad with Marge baking cupcakes like they were drugs. Both plots had offensive stereotyping (more noticeable in Homer's plot),there's a trip into the stomach of Santa's Little Helper... and Reverend Lovejoy apparently does S & M. Yeah,that sounds like a fun episode,huh?moreless
  • Disappointing Episode

    3.5
    This episode really disappointed me. I am a big Simpsons fan, but Season 24 has really been a massive failure. At least Season 23 and 22 had some decent episodes. Anyway, this episode just seem same old, same old as we have seen the Marge-Homer marriage plot used so many times and we know that Lisa will never fall for Millhouse. I hated the Sushi Part of the episode to, Homer and Marge enjoyed and ate Sushi in Season 2, it's not anything new. Lastly, the ending was just weird? Why did it have to show the Sushi in Santa Little Helper's stomach, it didn't really add much did it?moreless
