    R & R Treehouse Of Horror II

    I saw that "TOH II" hasn't been in a R&R thread yet - so this is the first.

    Personally, I find this probably the best Treehouse Of Horror, together with V.

    Each segment is very good, making this overall, one of the best Halloween specials. A lethal combination of laughter, plus a bit of added horror and atmosphere goes a long long way.

    I rated it 4/5 but I definately prefer the grading system that most people use (including me) - A+ to D- and F if necessary.

    Bart's Dream - B-
    Lisa's Dream - B+
    Homer's Dream - A
    Overall - B+

    Thumbs Up

    One of the better THOH's but pales in comparison to 3, 4, or 5.
    Top 2 jokes:

    2.Somebody had to take the babysitter home. Then I noticed she was sitting on-her-sweet-can. So I grabbed-her-sweet can. Oh, just thinking about-her-can. I just wish I had-her-sweet-sweet-s-s-sweet can!

    1. Homer-Hey you $#@*, you cut me off. $#*@ to you!
    Lisa- Dad, that's an ambulance
    Homer-Right, honey. Hey ambulance! You think you're so big with your $@#^ *%$# siren. And your letters are on backwards!

    Top 3 THOH Qoutes:

    3. Selma as Homer runs naked across kitchen-There goes the last lingering thread of my heterosexuality.
    2. Delirious Mr. Burns-I was walking through the gas one day!
    1. Flanders-Hey, Homer, mind if I chew your ear
    (Homer shoots Flanders)
    Bart-Dad, you killed the zombie Flanders
    Homer-He was a zombie?

    all three segments are pretty good, yet none of them are really overtly memorable. B+.

    All three rate an A(the first part even A+) , but it´s the originality that I like the most. After seeing TOH I this was the first Halloween special without too many references, and it set an example for the still coming Halloween specials(breaking the "normal" rules, surprise endings, referential gags)

    Love this one, definitely one of my favourite THOHs. Pure classic material, each story is almost flawless and the wraparound material is great too. I make sure I watch it every Halloween - A

    You think THAT's bad? What about that time when I was turned into a Tetris block?

    There is no classic segment in this episode, a rarity in the ten of THoH. There is nothing great about it. B

    5/5

    A truly surreal TOH, and some interesting qoutes in there.
    couldn't trust her with cheese, let alone with your keys

    Up there with THOH V as the best ever. Hilarious from beginning to end and devilishiously cynical throughout, to paraphrase Hibbert. True, it doesn't have that one pantheon segment that many of the Halloween episodes do (Segment 1 comes the closest I feel), but its consistency more than makes up for it.

    A / A+
    When the weight of the world has got you down and you want to end your life.
    Bills to pay, a dead-end job, and problems with the wife.
    But don't throw in the towel, 'cuz there's a place right down the block
    Where you can drink your misery away...

    At Flaming Moe's (Let's all go to Flaming Moe's...)
    When liquor in a mug (Let's all go to Flaming Moe's...)
    Can warm you like a hug. (Flaming Moe's...)
    And happiness is just a Flaming Moe away...
    Happiness is just a Flaming Moe away...

    I watched this again last night, and I absolutely loved it. Three jokes made me laugh for several seconds:

    1. "The turkey is dry" joke
    2. Bart's prank call to Moe while at school
    3. "That man at Radio Shack said I was mad, but who's mad now? MWHAHAHA!!!"

    Brilliance.

    Lisa's Dream A
    Bart's Dream B+
    Homer's Dream A-

    5/5

    Treehouse of Horror II ranks up there with some of my all-time favorite THOH specials. Homer's dream is my favorite. "Dammit Smithers, this isn't rocket science, it's brain surgery!"

    Its almost perfect..

    I wish they still did them this way..Showing them as dreams, etc..
    "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."

    Best TOH ever, in my opinion. Each segment was brilliant, especially Homer's dream...filled with stellar moments and such great Burnsmithers interaction! "Oh, Smithers, when you look at me with those puppy dog eyes...!"

    TOH II is tied at the top with V in my rankings of all the Halloween episodes. Every segement was incredibly well-written, with no identifiably weak stories. Being a rather rabid fan of The Twilight Zone, I was ecspecially enamored of the "It's a Good Life" parody that was Bart's dream. The numerous homages to that particular episode were the definite highlights for me...well, that and all the Burnsmithers interaction in "If I Only Had a Brain." For some odd reason, I always crack of laughing at the scene with the two calmly eating pizza in between all the other shots of the robot being assembled

    I wonder if HarleenQuinn thinks I'm going out of my way to parrot her...

    A classic, funny, THOH.

    4/5.
    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.

    Although it's funny just like every other Season 3 episode, I found this one rather bland. But it beats III senseless..

    6.9/10

    One of the greats - "Look at me, I'm Davy Crockett!" is possibly my favourite Simpsons moment ever. 5/5.
