Episode Review – The Fool Monty

I am once more sorry for not reviewing this on the day of, but I was busy the next day and I was sick and blah .. anyway, here is my review for “The Fool Monty” –

I thought this episode was bland, but it had a nice ending. The premise was hm .. okay – I liked the idea of Mr. Burns getting amnesia due to his trauma and going through life as a blank slate. However, this episode ran too short and ended on a sour note with Mr. Burns regaining his memory¬† and deciding to put a dome on the town – and the writers actually remember that something’s been done before…but that’s not important. I would have liked the episode much better if they had Mr. Burns lose his memory earlier on in the show, and then trying to go through life as a nice individual; somewhat like a child. But no – the writers decided Mr. Burns should get his memory back and discover that the reason he’s 104 is because of his hatred. However, I liked the very ending with Mr. Burns stating “That’s my boy” about Nelson Muntz in the school play; I found it a nice moment. I’d give this episode a solid 3/5 because I’m generous.

Episode Review – Lisa Simpson, This Isn’t Your Life

As the title suggests, I’ll be reviewing Lisa Simpson, This Isn’t Your Life – the most recent episode of The Simpson’s 22nd season. Here we go –

Lisa Simpson, This Isn’t Your Life

This episode is definitely my favorite episode in this season thus far. It actually was a decent episode for a change, and I definitely enjoyed it…and I can’t believe that I’m even saying this about a season 22 episode. I find it a nice Marge-Lisa tale, and those two are hardly paired with eachother (if it’s a parent-child story, it’s usually always Homer/Lisa). Homer was quite hilarious in this episode, I laughed at nearly all of his lines – my favorite was when Lisa said “I’ll make the old me look like Bart,” to which Homer responded with “That would be one weird lookin’ kid.” The subplot was sub-par to the main plot, I definitely thought it dragged the episode along and was just used as filler-as the main plot easily could have been the only plot of the episode. Anyway .. I found this to be enjoyable in the strife that is season 22. I would give this episode a 4.5/5-a decent, but not completely great, episode. I hope you all watched this actually – decent – episode of season 22, because I did.

The Simpsons Set to Surpass 500 Episodes

I just heard the news myself, and I can’t help but feel a bit happy to hear that The Simpsons have been renewed for a twenty-third season. Although they shouldn’t be any nice treat to watch, except for a few rarities, I feel a bit happy that The Simpsons are not ending.

So .. let’s see what the 500+ episodes brings us .. thanks for listening, everybody!

Double Review – MoneyBART and XXI

SPOLIERS HO!

Sorry for the long delay on these reviews, I’ve been having tough personal problems and I haven’t had many moments free. Anyway, here is my review for “MoneyBART” –

The episode was stale, but not terrible. The premise was so-so, it had some ups and some downs – this is probably my favorite of the season (it’s hard to say that as I don’t really love any episode this season). The most hilarious moment of the episode was most likely when Marge, Bart, and Mike Scioscia were on the rollercoaster, for some reason I had a good time watching that than most of the episode. The ending was okay, but not great – I expected Bart to lose, of course, as that was the most predicted thing that would happen. It would have been nice to see them go another route with making Bart win,¬† as that – most likely – wouldn’t have been expected. Either way – this episode was an okay addition .. I s’pose. I’d give it a solid 2.5/5.

Here is my review for the 21st Treehouse of Horror special, “Treehouse of Horror XXI” –

The opening was okay, I liked the uh .. return .. of the warning that Marge used to do, with Frink saying “shield your little darlings,” which I took as a warning. I chuckled at him saying ‘Ah, I’m dead’ right before he turned to dust, but that’s all I laughed at in the opening. The parody of The Office was unneeded and stupid, I don’t see any reason why they parodied it, but .. uh .. what’cha going to do? Anyway, let’s get started with “War and Pieces” –

WAR AND PIECES

I thought this segment was quite distasteful. The plot started out okay, I enjoyed the movie “Jumanji,” so I would have thought that I would have enjoyed this .. well, I was completely wrong. Milhouse dies in the segment, Rod & Todd get crushed by blocks, and a bunch of Moe-like creatures are impaled. Anyway .. I really didn’t enjoy this segment, I didn’t laugh at anything, I just found it all distasteful and disgusting. So .. well .. this is a short review for a segment – let’s get on with it with “Master and Cadaver” –

MASTER AND CADAVER

I thought this segment was great – I’m not even joking. I completely enjoyed this segment, it’s definitely my favorite modern-THOH segment thus far. The premise was great, I loved having just Homer and Marge as the main characters, as you hardly see them together alone in episodes anymore. Homer had some good one-liners in the segment, my favorite was after he looked at Marge’s dead body and commented on how she wanted to ride bikes through New England, but the seats hurt his ass. Anyway, this segment was great – like it or not, you have to appreciate how it had a nice, mysterious feel. I’d give it a solid 5/5. And now let’s go get some poisoned Kool-Aid because it’s time for “Tweenlight” –

TWEENLIGHT

As expected, I didn’t like this segment – wait .. I absolutely hated this segment. I hate Twilight, and I hate this segment – and to think Daniel Radcliffe, who stars in the great and epic Harry Potter would go to Twilight. Just .. no. No. The only thing I found funny in this terrible segment was Homer becoming a fat vampire bat and falling, apparently to his death. Anyway .. as I don’t have much things to say (that aren’t all family-oriented) about this, I’ll just give it a solid 2/5. Another terrible ending to another so-so THOH episode. Thanks for your patience waiting for my review, and I hope you all watched it, and give your opinions!

Thanks for listening,

Judy
