Very, very disappointing.
18 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What an utter disappointment. After the absolutely brilliant, brilliant couch-gag - which featured the after-events of The Simpsons Movie - the episode just....died. I mean, I don't see why it was so bad. How can you make such a great, great couch-gag then make an abysmal effort, all with the same intentions? It just...doesn't make sense.

The whole episode just isn't funny at all, and is even flat-out unfunny. But I can't say I'm surprised - it's a hold-over from the disappointing 18th season.

On a positive note, this episode features some of the best voice-acting in years. In some moments, the characters sound almost identical to their Season 4-10 models.

This episode gets a 4/10, but because the couch-gag was surprisingly great, I might up it to a 5/10; but a simple couch-gag can't compensate for 20 minutes of wasted potential.
