Trivia

While discussing TV shows, Homer mentions how producers like animation because they don't have to pay the voice actors, at which point Ned Flanders, sounding noticeably different, walks by and says they can even replace the cast and and the audience won't be able to tell the difference. This is an inside joke referring to a real-life pay dispute that occurred between the main cast and the network in 1998, during which Fox threatened to replace all of the voice actors. See more »

Betting on the wrong TV show
11 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one evokes 'In Marge We Trust' and the Mr. Sparkle debacle (Homer once again in a lather over his name/likeness being co-opted), and while it doesn't reach those heights, it's a solid episode in its own right. It begins with a scathing appraisal of TV culture and ends up with Homer saving some trees from deforestation. Absurd, but still entertaining; mostly because of the memorable Max Power persona.

And I have to confess to loving "Police Cops", and its riff on Crockett and Tubbs. Yeah, I'd watch it.

7/10
