Storyline

The opening titles fulfil a Mayan prophecy that the world will end in 2012 when giant stone gods destroy Springfield; The Greatest Story Ever Holed:- A black hole appears in Springfield and Lisa hides it in the Simpsons' basement. However, as the family use it for garbage disposal it sucks more and more in, eventually devouring the whole of Springfield, except Maggie, who blocks it with her pacifier. Un-Normal Activity:- Homer sets up a camera to record paranormal, nocturnal events in the house. When a demon appears it transpires that Marge is responsible, following a childhood pact and Homer has to placate the demon with sex. Bart and Homer's Excellent Adventure:- Bart gets into a time machine taking him back to 1974, where he meets a teen-age Homer, who hides in the time machine and returns to the present to find Marge married to Artie Ziff. He summons all the Homers in history to help redress the balance. Written by don @ minifie-1

Best Treehouse Of Horror's In A While,
27 March 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Treehouse Of Horror 23 is a great Simpsons episode with a three hilarious segments and funny parodies.Its definitely one of the best Treehouse Of Horrors in a while,I've seen all of them,and I like them all,but this one is the best there has been in a good few years,because ones like last years are largely considered the worst.My main problem with last years episode is that the segments all felt pushed together and seem like the writers wanted to write much more for each of them,but didn't have enough time,but they balanced them out well in this one.My favourite part was the Paranormal Activity parody,then the Back To The Future parody,but I did enjoy the black hole segment as well.

Professor Frink accidentally causes a black hole to open up in Springfield,Homer puts cameras all around the house when the family notices strange things occurring at night and Bart goes back in time and stops Homer and Marge from ever being together,and she marries Artie Ziff (returning guest star Jon Lovitz).
