Inception Simpsons' style
2 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I kept thinking while watching this episode, that while it was entertaining, it's just another middle of the pack episode from season 23. A lot of the sight gags were neat, and I get the feeling that someone on that Simpsons' staff is a big Inception fan.

So you've got Homer wetting the bed, which causes the Simpson family to enter his dreams in pursuit of why. My favorite part of this episode was the crazy gravity fight between Professor Frink and Chief Wiggum.

Ultimately, the ending retcons Homer's childhood a little too much for me to completely admire the sentimentality they employ as the answer. There's nothing wrong with this episode, even a couple quite funny things (Homer's diapers and Bart's dance moves - I'm looking at you), but I don't see myself watching this episode over again for a long while.
