I watched it this afternoon over lunch on Fox8. Hilarious episode and a nice little story expanded into a pretty extravagant and relevant form (the sibling rivalry being turned into an all-in-brawl for the whole town). Fits all my criteria for being a good episode. But uh, that's the thing. It's well known now that I don't have problems with the style of this episode. A lot of other people do. I'm genuinely interested to hear how the chumps that are always moaning and groaning about certain...traits of a certain character as written by a certain writer can ignore those traits which are abundantly obvious in this episode. A quick comparison so you can see where I'm going here...
Homer: I'll mace you good! *swings mace*
Homer: I want to see you both fighting - fighting, for your parents love! Fight fight fight fight fight fight fight fight!
