Worth Viewing for the First Two Tales
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Treehouse of Horror series in the Simpsons show tells 3 horror-inspired tales in time for Halloween each year. This year opens with a Tales from the Crypt intro with Burns.

"Married to the Blob" features Homer turning into a gigantic blob after a meteor hits (ala Slither) and he insists on eating the green goo inside. This one includes the rap song "Baby, got fat" (I like big fat and I cannot lie) and a Dr. Phil that gets eaten.

"You gotta know when to Golem" features an ancient Jewish monster that will do whatever commands are asked of him. The highlight is when a drunken Homer mistakes the Golem for Millhouse.

"The Day the Earth Looked Stupid" is an Orson Welles "War of the Worlds" spoof. This was more serious in tone and devoid of any laughs, which is uncharacteristic of the Simpsons.

Bottom Line: Worth viewing for the first two tales. Can pass on the third.

Rating: 6.5/10
