Homer takes a dangerous dive into an isolated canyon on Candy Peak, but when a crashing boulder traps his arm, he channels Aron Ralston to save himself. In "The Diving Bell and Butterball," the first of three hair-raising Halloween tales, a venomous spider bite leaves Homer paralyzed, but when Lisa discovers Homer's ability to communicate through natural gases, he is able to express his love for Marge. The killer spells continue in "Dial D for Diddly," when Ned Flanders, devout preacher by day, transforms into a cold-blooded vigilante by night. In the final terrifying tale, "In the Na'Vi," Bart and Milhouse are sent on a mission to obtain a sacred extract on a distant planet. They morph into the land's indigenous one-eyed avatars, but when Bart finds love and an eternal mate abroad, he is caught in planet warfare. Written by Fox Publicity

Ned Flanders: Springfield, my home town. Pretty little place, although even the Garden of Eden could use a nice cleansing rain now and then.

Great opening, suddenly died immediately
18 May 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Let me just say this: The opening is GREAT. As a parody of "127 Hours", it's really good and is actually mildly disturbing. The first segment is the worst. Just so terribly, terribly, tasteless humor. If I want fart-jokes, I'll watch South Park or Family Guy, but I don't want to freaking see it in The Simpsons. It's totally UN-Simpsons. The second segment does unfortunately not deserve to be called the "best", it's just the least irritating one. The appearance of Maude here was the worst to date. The third was almost just as bad as the first one, and as the first one too, is NOT halloween-like in any way. An "Avatar"-parody?! WTF?? Even if you HAVE seen the movie, it's STILL not funny, believe me. Even worse than the previous one. This blows.
