Trivia

Declan Desmond, played by Eric Idle, asks Homer if he can use the "condiment pen" on fish and chips, to which Homer replies, "You can use it to put horseradish on your dead mother for all I care." This is a reference to a Monty Python sketch, in which John Cleese takes his mother to undertakers, played by Graham Chapman and Eric Idle, who suggest various means of disposing of the body, finally suggesting cannibalism - horseradish is suggested as a seasoning.

In one take of the documentary filmed on Homer's life, Bart is a toddler and Lisa's just a baby. In the back, there is part of a picture in which Bart, Lisa, and Maggie pose, even though Lisa is just a baby and Maggie hasn't been born yet. See more »

This was a really great episode. It deals with documentary director Declan Desmond making a movie about some elementary school kids every 8 years, now on year 32. We get to see in to Chief Wiggum, Professor Frink, Homer, Lenny (sort of) and Marge's life. Not only is the concept good, but it is executed so perfectly. I laughed out loud several times, probably the most in the last 5 years, and even though it was a pretty silly episode, it still managed to have a really sweet ending. I think that this will be up for the next Emmy's and it probably will win. Best episode since season 9.

My rating: **** out of ****. TV PG D
