Goofs

The Simpsons move away to Cypruss Creek and abandon their old house, yet only take one car with them (the station wagon), while the other just disappears and is never seen until the next episode. See more »

This is a great episode ...
20 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Because it's funny on nearly every level. There are moments of great crass humor, there's character based stuff like the whole town saying goodbye, there's the pure acting genius of Albert Brooks riffing with Dan Castellenata.

It's great for the main plot -- a parody of James Bond told from the villain's side and basically denuded of all the sex and intrigue. It's comedy of the absurd meets comedy of the pathetic, and it fires on all cylinders.

Combined with this is a series of excellent satires -- the planned community as the engine of organized evil, the progressive school as an inescapable educational Mobiüs strip, the housewife's dream house that leaves her life empty. This is great stuff.
