Did You Know?


Ned Flanders briefly appears with a different voice, mentioning how animated shows can replace actors without anyone telling the difference. In May 2015 the show runners announced that Harry Shearer, who voiced Ned Flanders and many other characters, would be leaving the series due to a contract dispute and his characters would be recast. Several months later the show runners announced Shearer would remain on the show after reaching an agreement with him. See more »

Homer Simpson is Max Powers
21 October 2006 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons are watching the new "Mid-Season" on TV. What's brilliant about this episode is the inside jokes on Television series Producers. "Police Cops" parody of police TV shows was brilliant. One of the cool cops is named "Homer Simpson" and Homer is surprised by that. Soon the whole town admires Homer, not long enough the cool Homer Simpson cops is changed into a goofy fat character who is made fun off all the time. The town makes fun of Homer, who decides to battle his name - eventually loses and decides to change his name to Max Power. There is a great satire there on Bill Clinton as he is portrayed as a person who sleeps even with pigs. 8 out of 10.
