    I love it, haven't seen it in a while. I like Frank Grimes alot, espically the scene about him taking a bullet for someone, it shows the guy get shot like 5 times, then Frank jumps infront and gets shot once. Gold. And then he's running towards a cylo, and it just kind of explodes, lmao, that poor guy.

    Homer's Enemy is a goddam classic. Since I'm poor and don't have Sky/Cable, can someone quickly reassure me that the one I've been told about, where Grime's kid shows up, is an abomination.

    Yet again it seems I'm a lone critic here - Homer is very very irritating throughout this episode. If he behaved like this in the Scully or Jean era everyone would be screaming 'JERKASS HOMER'. And it has an utterly tedious and pointless subplot.

    I don't think he's irritating. He tries to make friends with Grimes, but fails. The subplot is possibly the best of season 8.

    And if it came in Scully era, it would be entirely different, so we'd scream 'JERKASS HOMER', but in Jean era...well...

    5/5 Another one in my Top 10 list. I liked how Frank Grimes went nuts near the end of the episode.

    I can't really argue with the negative reviews I've seen about this episode, but I still like it. A very dark episode, and very hilarious. It starts to lose some steam in Act 2, and the part about Bart's factory didn't amount to much, but Act 3 had me laughing from start to finish. I give it a high 4/5.
    Bart: "Please don't call our parents!"
    Chief: "I'm afraid I have to for hijinks like these. Hijinks - it's a funny word. Three dotted letters in a row."
    Eddie: "Is it hyphenated?"
    Chief: "It used to be, back in the good old days, you know. Of course, every generation hyphenates the way it wants to. Then there's *NSYNC! What the hell is that? Jump in any time there, Eddie, these are good topics."

    5/5 A+ without doubt

    I think the subplot is the weakest part of this episode. The story works as an "alternative" Simpsons episode, one that shows what the Simpsons universe looks like to an outsider (Grimes). But then they keep cutting to this "B" story that could fit into any normal episode. And as a normal episode, this story doesn't work. So I wish they'd cut that part out and maybe filled the story out with an Itchy and Scratchy cartoon (with Grimes wondering why everyone seems to find this so hilariously funny when it obviously has no comic timing at all).

    just re-watched it a few minutes ago, for the first time in ages. There's alot to like about this episode, including some subtle but effective animations. But I wasn't too crazy about Frank Grimes himself, and IMO his introduction into the Simpsons universe felt too forced. Be that as it may, the laughs were still there...overall, 4/5

    Grimes' character and the ending make this one 5/5. It's not perfect, but the good parts are so excellent you can forgive the flaws. My issues would be that Homer is really a little irritating, not as much as Scully's, he's more like his self in Homer Loves Flanders...it is useful for the plot to make him a little irritating, I guess, in order to show that a person like Homer would not be the best guy on earth if he existed in "real world" so it's not like Scully episodes in which he's irritating for no reason and they try to make "jokes" with him annoying everybody else. Also there isn't much plot. It's only Grimes being annoyed by Homer, it's a little like "Two Bad Neighbours" in a way. And the subplot is ok, but nothing special.

    Butters, you gotta see Enemy when it comes next on Sky. it's one of these episodes you just have to try and see...

    as for me I gave it 4/5. Homer isn't a "jerkass" but he's annouying. I also found the ending very dark.

    I stand by my previous comment; Homer wasn't annoying. He was genuinely trying to make friends with Grimes, but Grimes thought it unfair that Homer had things so much better and got by work so easily and luckily, and therefore became enemies with Homer.

    You can't say to someone he wasn't annouying. IMO he was and he annouyed me.

    Yeah, the moments when he, say, poured water all over a control panel to get the alarm to stop was slightly annoying, but he's done this at work hundreds of times, what's one more?
