    From memory, this is probably my least favorite episode, definitely of the season, and maybe of the series. There are a few chuckles, but yeah, the ideas were flat and uninspiring. Seasons 16's Future-Drama pisses all over this one

    Worst of season 11. Everything that needs to be said has been said except for one thing.

    Did anyone find the way Bart was talking to Lisa at the end a little weird. it was almost like he was coming on to her. I'm probably just paronoid, but what else could he have meant?
    You can do anything if you put your mind to it.

    Everything happens for a reason.

    Just be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.

    Don't worry about the world ending today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.

    He was obviously talking about legalizing marijuana but couldn't say so outright on this show.

    Why not? What about Weekend at Burnsies?
    Also, sorry about my embarassingly bad last post I made, but that's seriously what I considered.

    I don't know, maybe it was their attempt at trying to be coy about it. But it's pretty easy to see what "legalize it" is getting at.

    I can't say I got the vibe he...was coming on to his sister at all, even if I try to.

    Yeah, I was just paranoid. About a year ago when I rewatched it, it was about that time when I saw a thread on TV.com about someone saying that they think Bart and Lisa like each other more than brother and sister, so I was trying to find some hints in episodes.

    D+. I'm usually lenient with reviews, but this episode was not that good. All that is saving it from F-Dom is a few jokes, otherwise it stunk. Bart repeats the same stuff over and over, Ralph still sounds like he is 8, how the is Lisa the President?

    D-. they dont take the advantage that its 30 years into the future, and homer is just there in the white house.

    best line is

    marge: number of gold bars discovered by homer?

    homer: shut up.

    I'd give it a C or C-, which doesn't make it a very good episode by any means. Nevertheless, some of the jokes worked.

    A D Epsiode. Thin plot with terribly unfunny jokes. Only good thing is the return of Gabbo.

    Pretty terrible episode with nothing worth of note really mentioning. I did chuckle at the line 'I guess the spirits thought the main vision was a little thin.'

    Oh my great good God! Gentlemen, your attention please. I am detecting a gigiantic amphibious life-form, it's 80 meters long and it's heading this way. Oh good glayven it's on my shoe. It's a small frog, just get off, just get off there, just get out of it, get out of it. Stupid machine, oh wait a minute, this isn't the Monsterometer, it's the Frog-Exaggerator Mm-hai.

    I kinda liked it.

    I liked the funny Indian man who predicted Bart's future. Hahah.

    And I liked the idea of Bart staying with Ralph Wiggum hahah.

    But hmmmmm, if it was Bart's future, why is Lisa hogging the lime light?

    I don't get much of the hate for this episode. It had its faults and flaws to be sure but I liked it much more than a lot of the other episodes that were being produced at that time

    Perhaps it is because I'm a political junkie and I liked the political premise of the episode and all the political and historical references. Perhaps it's also because I enjoyed much of the initial premise for the flashback and the interaction between Bart and the Indian fortune teller. But there was something that kept me engaged and interested during this episode and had me enjoying much of it

    I'll concede the vision of the future was slightly simplistic and they could have showed more future character developments for the respective characters. But even then, I didn't really feel it dragged down the quality of the episode to a significant extent. The sub-plot was somewhat weak, predictable and stupid but for some reason I didn't mind it and it wasn't something that annoyed me. I realize the potential for the episode to have been better but I still thought it was quite good

    4/5 from me.

    D+ Not really that good. Kicks Lisa's Wedding, one of the greatest episodes ever, in the gonads. Only good line, "Way to make a guitar, Sears."

    I absolutely hate this episode, easily one of the worst episodes of the series IMO, having to watch Bart acting like as if he never grew up was a bit painful, given he was my favorite simpsons characters.

    I don't think it's that bad. It's not great but I don't take the future vision as stuff that will actually happen much like how i don't take Frink's vision of the future literally. Not all the jokes were great and Bart was a tad annoying at times, although despite what you all say I liked the sub plot. I thought it was funny, especially with the indian admitting that the 'spirits thought the main vision was a little thin' - 3/5

    Season 11 continues with a glimpse into the future! Bart is a 40 year old loser who mooches off of others and refuses to do anything with his life. Lisa is the newly elected president. Maggie is an astronaut. Bart helps Lisa avoid some debt collectors while Homer hunts for Lincoln's gold.

    This is yet another one of those episodes I don't seem to hate as much as most others although I do think this is bad for the most part. If Jim Brooks was upset with how Bart turned out in Lisa's Wedding I really have to wonder what he'd think of this episode if he was still really working on the show at this point but that likely wasn't the case. Much of the episode is meh material at best but I did like some stuff. I enjoyed the Flanders scene although it lasts for what? a minute, probably less? Marge's "gold bars found by Homer?" and his response was the best joke of the episode. The Homer's quest for Lincoln's gold story is entirely unnecessary and they admit it, but I enjoyed both scenes involving it far more than most of the episode so I guess I overlook that point.

    Aside from that there isn't anything that stands out to me as being really funny. I liked Krusty's appearance I guess. The beginning and setting of this one always reminds me of that really early Family Guy episode set at the indian casino. I don't hate this episode I just find it really forgettable. I often think of Future-Drama as the second future themed episode before remembering about this. You'd think considering it is an idea as potentially interesting as a look into the future that I'd remember it better but no. I really enjoy all three of the other future episodes the show has done too so that doesn't really help this one out. I'd say it is worthy of a 2/5 and I guess a D+ on the poll...

    Super old Krusty along with this version of future Ralph's design were this episode's only saving graces for me. Old Krusty's design is just I dunno...it's just funny to me.

    But yeah, other than the design of two characters this episode's just gotten even more worthless over time, especially after the recent Christmas episode that just handled the idea of a middle aged Bart at least 50 times better. That episode also not only had middle aged Bart and made him an adult shadow of his former self, which just made him interesting...but it had an ultimate point to it too. This episode, it had no point. It's just about 10 year old in a 40 year old body-Bart's random shenanigans.

    Its years later, and most of this season remains worthless. Nostalgia isn't going to save it for me.
