I don't think any other future Season 19 episode could be worse than this - easily the worst yet.
18 November 2007 | by killbill500See all my reviews

With the exception of Treehouse of Horror XII (Season 13), this episode is easily the worst Treehouse of Horror of all time. No kidding. It's just a joke from start to finish. There's nothing good about it, there are no redeeming qualities to anything in it, it's just an implausible mess.

The first two episodes of Season 19 were poor, followed by two great episodes, followed by this joke of an episode. And I can tell you: I doubt anyone with even a shred of intelligence is laughing. Honestly Simpsons producers, don't insult us with this lazy excuse for an episode.

Segment 1 ("E.T. Go Home") - A shocking parody which occasionally takes a break from being boring and unfunny, and becomes nauseating. F

Segment 2 ("Mr. and Mrs. Simpson") - A decent parody of a stupid movie. The result? A stupid segment. - C-

Segment 3 ("Heck House") - Easily the most disjointed, badly-characterised segment of all of them. Also plagued with rigid, inexpressive animation. D-

Overall: F
