Storyline

A bomb squad mistakenly blows up Homer's unattended gym bag, releasing radiation into the city and authorities react by suspending civil liberties. Wiggum and his men install surveillance cameras around Springfield and round up suspected terrorists, including groundskeeper Willie, but when monitoring the nonstop flow of video imagery proves to be too much, Wiggum enlists concerned citizens to help keep the city safe. Meanwhile, Lisa becomes fed up with being blonde, so she dyes her hair a dark color. Written by Fox Publicity

Funny episode, minus the god awful opening
25 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty neat episode. after a bomb scare, Springfield ends up with CCTV cameras; much of the plot is based on the criticism against CCTV cameras, and whatnot. Eddie Izzard was alright, but hearing him voice the Queen was a riot. funny gags including the "17 Incredible Hulks and one Spider-Man" Chief Wiggum perving on the topless woman sunbathing, and Bart setting up the border for the blind-spot while mooning Flanders. One thing that did bother me was the opening. everyone lip-syncing to Ke$ha's crap-fest "Tik Tok" I mean, ugh! the song was critically panned cause it sounds like a ripoff of Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" all and all, Ke$ha sucks and that was a letdown to fans for hearing that garbage before the episode. still a good one though.
