I watch, and blog, and watch and blog and watch. It's the Simpsons every day!

Treehouse of Horror XIII

Director: David Silverman

Synopsis: Send In The Clones has Homer cloning himself through a magically evil hammock. The Fright to Creep and Scare Harms sees Lisa protecting the long dead with new gun control, which has devastating results. The Island of Dr Hibbert finds the residents of Springfield being turned into animals by a manic Dr Hibbert. 

Discussion: As far as Halloween episodes go, this one is pretty good. Homer cloning himself is actually really funny and inspired. Who else would do all those chores and murder Flanders? Go Homer! The Homer Horde, who aren’t as smart as the original, are lured to their deaths by giant doughnuts. In all, it’s a fantastic segment.

The second segment is probably designed as a satirical view highlighting the ongoing gun control debates in America. Lisa discovers a grave with an epitaph bemoaning gun violence, so she decides to rid Springfield of all guns. The young man killed by guns turns out to be Billy the Kid, who, along with his dead cronies, happens to still wield their guns and they take over the town. I just want to add that gun control isn’t about taking away rights or freedom, it’s about protecting your life and values. This segment is the weakest of the episode.

The last segment sees a manic Dr Hibbert making mutant animals using the people of Springfield. Again, this segment is really good and the illustrators have done a fabulous job of turning people into animals.
