    Rate & Review: "Marge Simpson In: Screaming Yellow Honkers"

    I love this episode, especially the dialogue heard over the closing credits. What do you think of it? I give it a 5 out of 5.

    6.5/10

    It's okay, Homer's apologies during the end credits were the best part of the episode. Marge's craziness is actually tolerable (unlike other recent episodes).

    It was average. An okay plot, but badly executed as far as the whole zoo thing went. I loved the jabs at the networks, and I loved Homer's "Jumanji!" yell. All in all, it was okay, but is not the best of Season Ten. 2/5.

    hmmm, I forgot all about this ep, it's actually well above the usual awful season 10 level. Perhaps I forgot about it in the mire that was S10. Marge and her road rage is well written, good characterisation, very unlike the other Crazy Marge ep Mad Mad Marge a season later. It's not hilarious, but it's amusing enough throughout. What lets it down, however, is that woeful ending, which was pointless and not at all clever. Were it not for the ending I might have given this ep a B+. But the crumminess of that ending takes it right down to a B-, which I think was what I gave it on original airing.

    3/5. A good episode in the making, but ruined by the writers' inability to end an episode properly.

    3.5/5 Ending sucked, but it had memorable moments, namely Skinner and Chalmers doing "Who's On First?".

    Mike Scully and his family running in the background of the zoo scene: "Take that, No Homers"

    Top notch episode. Favorite bits:

    Marge, look what I did. (the peanut)
    Homer joining Bart looking through Marge's purse.
    Wiggum "I never want to see you speeding again. Now you've got five seconds to get out of my sight."
    The Gil scene on the phone to his wife & her lover
    The variety concert at the start

    Whoa, that is one big bump.

    Not a horrible episode nor a great episode. It's just...there. 2.5/5

    I liked it. There's just something about these "vs." episodes that really appeals to me.

    3/5.

    Competent episode with a good balance between the unrelated introduction and the bulk of the story, however the ending isn't great and takes up way too much time, so C+ or 3/5.

    It seems that the formula for Marge episodes was set right around here (Marge gets a new hobby or takes on a new personality). The basic premise isn't that believable or all that interesting, but it's a funny episode throughout. The third act works for me as well. B-

    Better on the rewatch then on the initial viewing. It's fairly fun and fast-paced, although the ending is a bit of a letdown (except for the dialog over the credits/NBC references). Highlights include Marge's headlights (when Bart and Homer go through her purse), and when Carl asks where Homer is, only to have him go by on a rhino ("oh, there he is").

    7/10

    3/5, good episode
    Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
    I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?

    -- Homer's parable of the guy in the blue car, ``Homer the Heretic''

    Ralph: I Won! I Won!
    Principal Skinner: No Ralph this means you're failing English
    Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.

    A poor episode, one that I would definitely not want to watch again anytime soon. The ending was ridiculous and the whole thing seemed rather silly and uninteresting, also featuring jerkass Homer characterization. 2/5

    Yeah, I didn't think it was good, but I managed to get some level of joy of joys from it, even when I'm aware of it's faults. B-

    2/5

    Lame even for Season 10.
    "Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the object worship of the state. It will prescribe for every one where they are to work, what they are to work at, where they may go and what they may say. Socialism is an attack on the right to breathe freely. No socialist system can be established without a political police. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance."

    Marge related episodes aren't very popular, and this is one of those episodes. You neither love it or hate it, it's just a solid watchable episode, in the vein of The twisted world of Marge Simpson or In Marge we trust.

    I didn't enjoy the opening scenes at the school that much, except for Willie's imitations. Later we have more funny situations. Gil isn't a very funny character, I actually feel bad him, but scenes with him in this episode made me laugh for some reason.

    The episode gets strange as Marge starts driving Canyonero. There were some hilarious parts, such as the one with Homer not realizing he should feed the cat and Bart going through Marge's pursue, but what bothered me is the fact that Marge became too violent. Although it can be tolerable, it's still out of character. I especialy disliked the scene with Marge driving over the cars with Kearney and Agnes Skinner - both unrealistic and out of character.

    The last couple of minutes were exciting but odd. I actually thought the whole rhino rampage fun, but I didn't like Marge's plan B at the end. Also, the conversation about NBC was terrible and I don't get why people concider it to be the best part of the episode.

    The fact is NBC AND CBS suck. But it was nothing special: 3/5
