    what the hell was that?

    who's writing for the simpsons now? people who hate the simpsons? that, the medical marijuana episode, was just like watching any other sitcom on television. fans who have turned to the simpsons as the only offering of honesty and "the truth" about our world that can be found anywhere on television are now mulling about in disgust. there was almost nothing in that episode that was dealt with honestly, if not total pop garbage. the way they presented marijuana was a travesty to intelligent minds. the whole episode was based on a stereotype and even that was represented well. the show offered nothing positive to society and PROMOTED imitation and stupidity. and to say that that was the show's point is ridiculous, because they offered no honesty about the issue of medical marijuana or anything regarding marijuana. it seemed like the people that wrote that episode only get their information through television and sitcoms. it's like watching an old episode of dragnet and having them bust a pot house and having all the "potheads" strung out like they're on heroin. it was terrible. homer smokes a joint and then sees all these colors? what? was there LSD in that joint? marijuana does not have those effects on the body/brain. all that was was just repeating the pop stereotype of marijuana usage, which wouldn't be a bad thing if the episode showed how stupid that stereotype is or made fun of it, but they didn't, they promoted those moronic ideals. if i want to see fake pop garbage i would have watched "friends" or any other sitcom. this episode was a travesty and the only thing i can make out of it is that the writers are trying to bury the show by making its loyal viewers turn away in disgust.

    I really like this episode, one of my favorites this season. Homer's rainbow trip was absolutely hilarious. My favorite line was Otto's "Why do they call them fingers? I never see them fling. . . oh, there they go." Plus Homer's "I could smoke in the president's face and he would be groovin..." line. CBG's pop-up-video commments were also a nice touch. And as I said above, I feel that Phish did a good job as well. They had several humorous lines and they certainly didn't take away from the plot (I feel they added). One complaint I have is the way the story ended so abruptly. I also feel Mr. Burn's drowning was forced and a little disturbing. Besides that, I loved. I may be alone on this, but I thought this was a terrific episode. It gets a 5/5 from me. :smoking:
    I didnt say they hurt the show i just said it started going down hill at that point..the fact that they suck doesnt help though

    2/5 - They could have done without the Burns act entirely and dealt with anything else. Homer's recovery, the townpeople's reaction.

    Homer's relationship with the crows
    Crow Diddy, Russel Crow, etc.
    Group of crows is called a murder
    Sweet sweet eye juices
    Prescription bongs
    "Objects may appear more edible..."
    I could smoke in the president's face and he would be groovin...
    Rainbow blood
    Call waiting on the phone-line (predictable)
    The audience looking confused when Homer says they took time away from their "jobs"
    Marijuana is good for medical use or watching "The Matrix"
    Otto referring to some marriage
    They call em fingers but I've never seen them fing
    Quiting cold turkey isn't as delicious as it sounds
    I keep it as a reminder (Dentist note)

    The problem is that there is virtually no controversey or debate about anything related to marijuana. The only thing
    about Ned Flanders' opposing the pro-pot stance is his clipboard of signatures. And the most intelligent thing Lisa has to say about the issue
    is, "that it smells like the art teachers' lounge." There is way too much time spent on Homer hanging out with Otto while stoned. The rally with
    Phish isn't much of anything, but a waste of time. Phish plays a part of a song, and Homer goes up on stage and rants, only to learn that the
    vote already took place -DUMB (an easy way for the writers to dodge any debate about the issue, which the episode should have been largely
    based upon). The subplot about Homer's promotion is so out of place that I nearly forgot about it. He gets promoted to
    VP because he laughs at Mr. Burn's jokes. After that, they spend so much time showing Homer stoned that in the last few minutes, they are
    forced to cram some story about an IPO.

    I agree, the first act was jam packed with great stuff but it went totally downhill from the middle. The slap part was the only good part about the 2nd half. The 2nd half seememd way rushed. If they had aobut 10 more minutes they could have had a good debate scene.

    pop-up CBG
    Homer laughing at Burns
    The flashback
    It's just a reminder
    phish
    the crows

    This episode was mediocre. There were some good jokes but the episode didn't do much for me. The plot jumped around and most of the stoned scenes were stupid. Although I did enjoy a lot of the jokes. I give it a 3/5. An average episode.

    The 1st and 2nd act WERE GREAT, best of the season material. But the third act started off decent, but the whole Mr Burns dead thing added should've been scrapped, they should of ended it with Homer begging for Marijuana and having hard times and then just stops smoking it. Still, all those high scenes were HYSTERTICAL, so I'm going to give it a 4.5, third best of the season behind Half Decent Proposal and Bart Wants what it Wants. Almost a 5, but that last act just made me lower it down. ( I guess I'll vote a 4 for it)

    Did anyone else think that the CBG pop-up thing was just a cheap attempt to get some laugh? It was pretty funny, but very unlike the Simpsons. Come to think of it, the whole episode was kind of unlike the Simpsons.

    (If you will excuse the allusion) It felt like there was a weird air to it.
    Marge: Homer, has the weight loss tape reduced your appetite?
    Homer: Ah, lamentably no. My gastronomic rapacity knows no satieties.

    Woo-hoo! Two good ones in a row! The Simpsons are on a roll!

    Loved the "Dirty Hoe," pop-up video-like stuff, the Flanders praying in the garden, the alpha-crow (a MURDER is correct), "that's not a worm" (worth a titter), "toke as needed," "smells like the art teacher's office," when Burns said Homers name (albeit by accident), and the line on Clinton (Jimmy Carter w/a Fox attitude).

    The dog chomping at the crotch got a big laugh from my kids.

    Overall, ::speaks like Monty Burns:: excellent!


    Cows are among one of the most versatile domesticated animals around today. They are also quite peaceful and contented with their simple lives, with few concerns about the world around them. Maybe we should all be more like cows?

    Well let's start off with the comedy factors, laugh wise this was a pretty decent episode. I really liked the scene with Homer getting freaked out by the scarecrow and coming back and smashing it up. The scene with the crows was ok but it was more on the unrealistic side I think the simpsons should get away from. I really liked the Pop Up video bit. The scene at Hibbert's was ok. Homer's flashback was funny though it was innaccurate(well I guess it's acceptable after the innaccuricies of The Blunder Years). Homer hanging out with Otto was a really good scene I thought. It was a great way to bring back a character who we havent seen in ages. Flanders was pretty funny in this episode. The whole Burns/Smithers Homer plot was pretty weak and Smither's went from being high to clean as soon as he remembered Burns was in the tub. My main problem with this episode was where is the contraversy? Nothing showed a debate or any intelligence on the subject...However, someone said something about how they missed the date to vote being a way to avoid the debate and pointless. But down here a similar convention was held pro marijuana and the problem was only 15 people showed up and almost all of them were late. Now I dunno if this happens all over, but if it does and that was some satire they were throwing in then I gotta give them credit because that is pretty funny. As far as being high, Homer's lines were 50-50. Some were great, some were horrible. Overall I'll give this episode a 7/10(based on this season). I liked this one alot better than last weeks.

    I had fairly high expectations of this episode. I liked it in the beginning, but the end sort of confused me. Overall, a C, 3/5.

    3/5

    Too wacky of a first act, solid 2nd act with some great animation, and a so-so final act that ended too abruptly.... I guess I wasn't aware of the time at the very end, as I was surprised that it ended with that Burns/Smithers/Homer dialogue, heh.

    A few CBG pop-ups should be seen in every episode.

    If you want to see facts and arguments for/against marijuana, read a fucking book. Stop using this as your only argument.

    Dudes...we all need to face it...the show isn't as good as it was and its rare in the new seasons that we will see some seriousness in these new episodes. This episode was perfect for this kind seriousness but they failed yet again. The show is merely comedy now. Nothing else. If an episode with seriousness does air then thats great!

    A D+/C-. All of my expectations for combining an intelligent debate about medicinal marijuana were immediately squashed. It didn't have anything satirical about medicinal marijuana, and flew right by the topic!? There were funny parts throughout (isolatedly, albeit), densely packed, but that couldn't compensate for the rambling and wasted plot. It began with a needlessly long opener, ran into a topic it couldn't do anything intelligent with and wasted time on, and then rambled its way out? The Burns-as-a-puppet thing was laugh-out-loud funny, but they could've fitted it into another episode instead of cramming it in at the end of a wasted one. A wasted oppurtunity and a mess. 2/5.

    Well, I turned on the television tonight with low expectations for this episode. Needless to say, my prediction came true. The storyline was all over the place and was pretty boring at that. The pothead jokes and the jokes in general all fell flat and seemed to go on and on and onnnn, especially the parts involving Otto. Yawn. 2/5. I expected much better. This was low, even for a season thirteen episode.

    I thought this episode way okay. We got to see Otto for the first time in a long time, and for the majority of the episode no less. Homer was actually at work. I knew Phish wasn't going to be on for more than 2 minutes. You got to admit Cloud Cole you are kind of bias when you reviewed the episode. I mean, correct me If I read your post wrong, but it seemed as if you gave it a the best grade just because Phish was in it, and you overlooked all the wacky jokes.

    Everyone here who doesnt like this episode has to shut the **** up. If you did not like this episode, then you do not like comedy. Plain and simple it was funny. If everyone who disliked it so much could just stop expecting a good episode with a great intro and a "family" ending then go watch full house, then maybe you will get what you want. In the end, how i judge an episode is, DID IT MAKE ME LAUGH? In this case it did, a lot. This rant was about many of the past seasons in general, so dont throw flaws of tonites episode at me, when a joke in the episode doesnt go over to well (ie: st00pid, makes no sense, offends you[pussy]) you have to learn to brush it off, all of you will come here and post that one joke as the reason the episode sucked. Im sick and tired of enjoying an episode and then coming here expecting to see some happy simpsons fans, then seeing some of the same people over and over say that it sucked. "worst episode of the season"...dont you think that phrase kinda loses its purpose when you use it every week?
