Hilarious and Really Strange,
6 March 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Man Who Came to be Dinner is a terrific Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and a ton of very funny scenes. It is a really strange episode, it feels like a Trrehouse of Horror sketch stretched out in to one episode, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely like to see more zany and over the top Simpsons episodes in the future, I think this season has shown with episodes such as Treehouse of Horror 25 and Simpsorama that fans adore the weirder episodes, they're always fun and I feel like the writers are leaving their comfort zone when they do it. I really loved seeing the family visit Kang and Kodos home planet, we've seen it briefly before, but in this we really get to see what their planet is like and many other aliens as well. The Man Who Came to be Dinner is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Homer and the gang are whisked across across the galaxy and forced to become zoo animals on Kang and Kodo's home planet.
