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

Cut the umbrellical cord


See Homer Run

Couch gag: The Simpsons, on their couch, are under a dome marked Earth Family and are viewed by aliens on Kang and Kodos’ home planet.

Director: Nancy Kruse

Synopsis: Homer runs for mayor to win back Lisa’s affection.

Discussion: This episode is beyond eye-stabbingly awful, it’s downright embarrassing for both viewer and everyone associated with the show. Homer spends most of the episode dressed as a salamander… ’nuff said.

Lisa shouldn’t be surprised that Homer doesn’t like her handmade present for Father’s Day, but instead of another Lisa-and-Homer-bonding episode, Homer decides to become Safety Salamander at her school and then runs for mayor. What? It was 15 minutes into the episode before that even happened! And somewhere in the middle, Bart stole a street sign… but that was very quickly forgotten even though there could have been a decent subplot to save this episode.

Who am I kidding? The only thing that could have saved the episode would be if the Simpsons were cancelled four seasons prior.

Lowlights include: having no discernible plot, Homer laying tennis balls inside his salamander suit, a chicken nesting inside his salamander tail, everyone running for mayor and the crowd cheering Homer as a salamander but ignoring him as Homer.

This is easily in the top 5 worst episodes thus far. Was Matt Groening in a coma when this went into production?
