Goofs

During Homer's court martial, the American flag displayed has seven white stripes and six red stripes instead of the seven red stripes and six white stripes. Also, when an American flag is hung vertically, the union (stars) should be at the top to the observer's left, not on the right as displayed. See more »

One of the worst of Season 9
24 July 2007 | by Mike7075See all my reviews

In my opinion, "Simpson Tide" is one of the worst episodes of Season 9, preceded only by the clip show, "All Singing, All Dancing." The episode starts off well with Homer's dream and zany antics, but quickly goes downhill when Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia rely strictly on parody for cheap laughs...this could be why they've only been involved with two Simpson's episodes. I do enjoy the gag with Russia converting back to the Soviet Union, but most of the last 3/4 of the episode I do not care for. I think what bothers me the most is Michael Carrington as the drill sergeant. The voice does not sound like a drill sergeant and sounds annoyingly out of place.
