Thank goodness this was the last time the Simpsons made a clip-show.
2 January 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Normally I know that the other clip-shows the Simpsons has created has been panned for having a weak plot that does not get concentrated and instead are showing us some old clips from the previous episodes, well not so much of the very first clip-show-episode and The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular which IMO is a great clip-show-episode.

Looking at the episode I understand it was supposed to be a homage of the movie Forrest Gump, later Homer and his family goes to the Gump Roast to represent Homer and see some of his memorable moments. But right at the third section of the episode something really strange happens that technically should not happen on the episode, Kang and Kodos appears on a non-Halloween episode! What the heck was Dan Castellaneta thinking about putting the Halloween characters on the episode? This makes the episode become into a non-canon episode instead of something real that happens on the Simpsons.

I don't think this episode worked very well, it has some big flaws that will make you go "what the heck was that?" It's a pretty lazy episode that won't deliver you something special. One thing I don't like about this episode is that they completely changed Maggie's voice (at one of the clips when Maggie says her first word) into Nancy's instead of Elizabet Taylor's! Seriously how could they do this? Although I gotta say that They'll Never Stop The SImpsons song is funny and is probably the only good part on the episode.

Is this episode recommended? If you ask me it's not an episode to look at. I suggest that you ignore this.
