Well, this is pretty middle-of-the-road to me. The premise is the worst part of this episode. There were funny moments peppered throughout the episode, but too many of the jokes were based on awkward moments without punchlines. And, like with the rest of season 17, there were several jokes based on having OFF say sentences in a weird syntax, or taking something very literally, or just saying sentences that nobody would ever say given the context. The joke seems to be that it IS something nobody would say (example - Marge: "That seems strange for a man who's uninterested in me to say"). It's hard to explain. Anyway, I think that is the biggest problem with season 17. Putting awkward things in OFF's mouths and passing them off as jokes.
The writers need to get it through their heads. The only way to make the Simpsons great again is to keep the dialogue real. The situations don't have to be realistic at all, but the dialogue must ring true for the show to be consistently funny. That's why most sitcoms suck, nobody talks in constant "witty" one-liners. I hate to say it, but these new episodes aren't a big step above those sitcoms if you ask me.
