Synopsis: Homer receives a journalism award for his work as Mr X, a blogger on the internet. Homer is then transported to a secret island for people who know too much.
Discussion: forget what I said about yesterday’s episode being the worst one… I think this is worse. Everything about the ep is a parody of movies, which I get, but these films are so old that on first airing of this ep, they were completely lost on me. So yes, I do think this biased my future opinion of this ep. However now that I know the originals, this ep is still shit.
Poking fun at the internet, which was still a growing entity back in 2000, Homer makes a webpage and gossips about Springfield’s residents. He’s done it before, only this time he’s rewarded for it. I’m cool with this.
The island- well, come on! The whole premise is just stupid, and what’s with the koala behind the Dame Edna mask? I just don’t buy it and it’s right up there with the most ridiculous plot lines ever.
