Snakes. Nature's quitters
13 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Season 12's Halloween episode, Treehouse of Horror XI, is a notable improvement on THOH X- not up there with the classic THOHs but pretty good nevertheless. In fact, THOHs continued to be good even after the show itself began to decline. This is my latest of my reviews on Halloween and horror-themed movies and TV this October.

The first segment offers the basic idea- surprising it hasn't been attempted before- of Homer dying and becoming a ghost. The jokes are good, including satire on horoscopes, a demonstration of how newspapers can hurt, and dark humour with the end of Mrs. Skinner. The twist at the end is fairly irreverent. This is the best of the episode's three stories.

The second story is also a basic idea- fairy tales come true. Is it appropriate for Halloween? Well, we do get a witch, a troll and Goldilocks' bloody demise. It's also a commentary on the brutality of peasant life, and it's fairly funny. Finally, in the third segment dolphins come onto the land and rise against humans, allowing for a Jaws parody and some real brutality. I've heard fans say they don't like this story, but Matt Groening points it out as a highlight of season 12 in the book The Simpsons Beyond Forever! I like it, too. The segment has a small basis in truth- most of us know dolphins indeed once lived on the land, as the episode states. And we hear Lisa almost swearing when she's bitten- I don't know what would have been funnier, her almost swearing or actually swearing.

Happy Halloween.
