Goofs

The stalactite fell straight down, but the hole it made is curved and, considering the height of it, there should have been a lot more debris at the bottom where Homer got stuck. See more »

Brilliant!
4 April 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I know people are complaining about how the Simpsons get worse and I myself found the seasons 15 to 19 not to be the best but there is an huge improvement in Season 21 as I think. And even in the weaker Seasons there are gems like this Episode. I am not going to say much about it. It is a story in a story in story... and all comes together in the end. It has funny flashbacks, inside jokes, slapstick comedy and the wit and silliness we all come to love. There are some heartfelt moments in it. It is what you would expect watching the Simpsons. This episode is just brilliant and a good example why this is possibly still the best thing to have ever come to TV.
