Storyline

Krusty's new eco-burgers bring food poisoning to Springfield thanks to contaminated barley,an ingredient imported from neighboring Ogdenville. Conssequently the Ogdenville economy plummets and its citizens,descendants of Norwegians,migrate to Springfield where they are initially welcomed for their industry. However their customs start to swamp those of Springfield and Quimby decrees that a wall be built to keep any more incomers at bay. The Ogdenvillers are allowed to help in its construction,during which time a strange new bond forms between the two townships. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

After the 20th season wrapped, The Simpsons' next episode has Bart write on the chalkboard, "High-definition is worth every penny." See more »

Goofs

When Krusty goes to take a bite, the close up isn't him at all. The man in the close up's face is yellow, not white, and he has a regular pair of lips, not the monkey style like Krusty and Homer. This is, of course, on purpose, to imply that Krusty didn't really eat the burger, and that the commercial's production values are shoddy. See more »

Quotes

Bart Simpson: Mom says I can have ice cream for breakfast. Oh, she's still here. Mom, can I have ice cream for breakfast?
Marge Simpson: No way, mister! It's just chocolate chip pancakes and syrup for you.

Still very disappointing.
30 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this episode again recently and I have to (once again) modify my opinion and lower my vote to a firm 3. I just don't think this episode rises to the standards of previous years.

The first half was good and had some really great gags. However, I think the writer attempted to make a statement that was clumsy and ham-handed. If I want lame and preachy I will watch "The Family Guy". Perhaps the writer of this episode should get a job with that show. In any case I will say it again, I hope they don't ask this guy back unless he is working with their staff writers.

I have not missed a single episode of The Simpsons since 1989 and have very, very rarely been disappointed. I am happy to say that the latest season was every bit as entertaining as ever. I also think that there are enough good ideas that the show could easily go on for several more years or at least as long as the voice talent agrees to come back every year and they continue to hire better writers than this guy.

Tastes vary and I know others would probably disagree but I won't comment on that as that is best left to the message board where it belongs.
