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.
