What an awful, awful episode.
26 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the episode that caused me to stop watching the Simpsons after 14 years of loyal viewer ship. "I hope you don't mind living below a bunch of pro skaters!" "Hey, Blink-182!"

After a couple episodes in the last few seasons that brought some cringe worthy moments, mostly involving celebrities voicing themselves, this was a new low.

The amount of music that seemed to not have been original to the series (by Alf Clausen or otherwise) and pulled off of pop radio and classic rock stations skyrocketed by this point, too.

I don't think the writers were being lazy or ran out of ideas, but it did seem to be a way to get interested parties into the show without giving them a reason to be there. Jamming musical acts to say a stiffly say a line into an episode for no reason other than to stiffly say a line did nothing. Any Simpsons fans that have done Simpsons trivia in their towns probably know exactly why most trivias don't go beyond season 8 or 9.
