Could Have Been Better!
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the seventh episode of the third season of the Simpsons and while it's still a strong episode, it could have been a stronger Halloween-central episode, just like Season 2's. But nonetheless despite the lack of scares, it was pretty funny. I liked Marge's introduction the best and the music used in the episode was pretty creepy.

In this episode, "Treehouse Of Horror 2," Homer, Lisa, and Bart eat too much Halloween candy which results in each of them having nightmares. Lisa has a nightmare involving a hand which grants wishes, Bart dreams about turning his father into a jack-in-the-box, and Homer dreams about Mr. Burns creating a robot.

Overall, this is a solid episode for the most part. I wanted to be scared a little bit more, but it does make up for it with the laughs and each segment was strong. I liked the hand episode the best since it seemed to have somewhat of a mystical feel. I rate this episode 8/10.
