Storyline

While watching a home movie, Marge becomes depressed as she is reminded of memorable childhood vacations spent at Barnacle Bay. Hating to see Marge sad, Homer and the kids take her on a surprise trip to the bay, only to discover that it has turned into a rundown mess due to the absence of fish. Homer and the kids lovingly give the boardwalk a whole new makeover for Marge. But when Homer accidentally lights the renovated carousal on fire, stirring up an angry mob of townspeople, more than just waves come crashing down. Written by freddyjasonmyer

only one funny item
22 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

As many of you would agree, the simpsons has taken a drastic turn for the worse over the past 8 or so years (some would argue that it was more than 8, but I'm such a die-hard fan i have a hard time seeing that). This episode contained only one item that made me smile, which doesn't even count as a laugh, so that is a terrible sign for the future of this show. I make that claim because starting at around season 2 and running through season 7 the episodes would have me laughing my head off no matter how many times i had seen them (seasons 8 through 13 still had plenty of funny moments, but the higher they get in season numbers, the lower they go on the humor scale).

The funniest part of this episode was the concept of Yum Yum fish... which when you think about it isn't even close to being on par with classic simpsons humor. Anyone out there think we should take up a petition to get Conan O'Brien to return to the show as a writer and producer? It is my humble opinion that the funniest simpsons episodes of all time were the ones that he was involved in making.
