Nutshell ;This is perfect episode for out of US
16 August 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

You might say why this episode is excellent? If you r living in third national like India,They show outside of US and they didn't kidding with that country.I mean Im Turk When I've seen episode in Rio i was upset about it.I think this is the episode about chancing in looking view of 3rd nation.

Also Richard Dean Anderson played in that episode.Im fan of Sg-1 and sci-fi.I think he changed sci-fi he gave it humour.i think he gave inspiration to Big bang theory(Sci-fi fans in comedy series).

All in All, I mean that episode may not be funniest episode in Simpson's but it is about changing mentality also it has a great guest.
