Did You Know?


When talking about football (soccer), Homer says "Can you believe that they gave Giggs a red card in the box?" referring to Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs supposedly being sent off in a match Homer has heard about. As it happens, in 19 years of playing for Manchester United, Ryan Giggs has never been sent off anywhere, though he was once shown a red card for Wales whilst on international duty. See more »


Queen Elizabeth's luggage bears the initials "HRH", for "Her Royal Highness" (which Homer thinks stands for "Henrietta R. Hippo"). This is a mistake; the queen's husband and children are styled "His/Her Royal Highness", but the queen herself is "Her Majesty". See more »


Tony Blair: Hello, welcome to the United Kingdom.
Homer Simpson: Would an American dollar encourage you to leave us alone?
Tony Blair: No. But thank you.

Very, very weak tea
20 June 2015 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

As an Irishman, it's my duty to take the mick out of the English, and Americans do the same.

But I felt bored by the episode.

Only a few actual English people did the voices and they're not actors (with the exception of Sir Ian and Jane Leeves).

The jokes are all yawn-worthy stereotypes that have been done to death, the accents are horrible (they sound more Aussie than the actual Aussie episode) and the joke where Sir Ian kept getting struck by lightening was just plain stupid and very un-Simpson like.

And the third act where Homer is imprisoned in the tower of London was just dull.

This episode is like a cup of tea that you forgot you made half and hour earlier and you decide to finish it. But you drink it, and it has gone all cold. So you pour it down the sink.
