"So, I'm closing up the bar right, and some punk executive producer comes in and tries to stick me up."
"Whatever did you do Moe?"
Well, it coulda been a really ugly situation, but I managed to shoot him in the spine. Ha ha! The next studio he produces at better have a ramp!" - Moe on Al Jean
Just a quick thing, I've never considered any of the previous 'future' episodes to be canon because they've always been somebody or something telling the kids how the future may turn out...Gypsy woman, Indian, Frink's machine...so this is kinda like the first future episode which is saying 'this is definitely happening'.
Anyone else think that?
PS. The octuplets and the octuplets' octuplets were my highlights, along with Cookie Kwan number 1 in the West Sky
They could use less techical innovations though...
I enjoyed this one a lot. I think (so far) Season 23 has been the best of the 20s'
That was surprisingly good. Come to think of it, probably my favourite episode since "Eeny Teeny Maya Moe." Smart humour, solid plot, overall I enjoyed this. 4/5
I honestly think this was the worst future episode ever. I only laughed like once through out the entire episode.
Edit: actually twice. All the Ralph's were hilarious
I could've laughed a lot more at the Ralph jokes if it wasn't caked in shit already
And the best season of the '20s was Season 13, duh!
Someone's gonna whale on me about that.
5/5 best episode in a while, the Ralph jokes were the best all season in my opinion.
It was pretty good. Best episode since season 15. Lots has been said already (and this probably has too), but I loved the music over the end credits. It was one of the best renditions of the theme song the show has done.
Simply put this should have been episode 500, J. Stewart Burns comes to bat for team Simpson and knocks another one out of the park!
Yeah, I read that earlier and I think it makes sense, both beginning and ending with a Christmas episode that even each end with a card. One would think if Jean were willing to hold this as the finale that it will be this season's Emmy nominee...

i rewatched it a couple days ago. some episodes i think highly of at first tend to decay in quality in future viewings, this one is still good and i find little details i hadn't noticed before. this one had better get the god damn emmy.
It was alright
Don't make me run! I'm full of chocolate!
Cheers to this episode. They crammed the episode with really good jokes. You can tell the comic writers had a lot of built up funny ideas for this one. The Kwik E Mart robbery & the Stupid ralphs were the biggest laughs. Excellent. A or 5/5.
I saw him again, was not as good as I remembered, but still wonderful, I love seeing all the family together. Very much laughter, really incredible.
Sorry for my english, i use the translator
9.2/10 or 4.6/5 rounded to a 5
Perfect episode with perfect jokes. Easily the best future episode

So yeah, this definitely doesn't hold up well. New rating: 3/5.
Well, this is the best The Simpsons can give out of season 23--- 4.5/5 rounded to a 5/5.
This episode wasn't really funny, but it was a more heartwarming Christmas episode. It's good to see that they haven't tossed away all the emotions. Also, 2nd place on my list of non-canon episodes.
This is the only episode that kinda justifies Simpsons lasting 20+ seasons. But as said above, it could/would have made for a good finale and/or movie, in which case the other 90 or so episodes are not really justified.
If there were any post-S8 episode that had to serve as a series finale, I would choose this one (even if it would have been ideal, like, right after the episodes produced for the 8th season cycle were aired). If the writers can only come up with a great episode every few years thanks to having to write 20+ episodes a year, maybe Simpsons should be, like, an annual one-off special like the way some UK shows do it.
Since the post-classic episodes are only great if there's some gimmick/format breaking structure the writers can use as a crutch, it wouldn't be weird if they were double-length and fully explored the possibilities of the writers' experimenting. I'm not saying there have necessarily been 15 great episodes post-S8, but if the writers didn't have to churn the product out like a factory it's possible they would be able to come up with fully-fledged great ideas more often than every few years. Oh, the episode itself...4.5/5
T10: Summer of 4 Feat 2, Marge vs. the Monorail, Last Exit to Springfield, Rosebud, Treehouse of Horror V, Lisa's Wedding, You Only Move Twice, Who Shot Mr. Burns Pt I, Homer's Phobia, Bart's Girlfriend (5x Mirkin, 3x Oakley/Weinstein, 2x Jean/Reiss)
This episode isn't quite as strong on story as Lisa's Wedding is, but it's packed with cute and appropriate ideas about what the future might be like in 30 years, making it highly entertaining from start to finish. Not surprisingly, it plays like a typical Futurama episode to me, except with the Simpsons cast, but that's probably why I like it so much. It has lots of eye candy and imaginative gags, yet just as much of a warm mood as was typical in the first 3 seasons of the series. It draws very special attention to Bart and Lisa's insecurities about their kids, analyzing the same theme from two different angles. On one hand, Bart is downright broke and separated from his family, while Lisa, despite turning out more successful (even if she married Milhouse, of all people), gets the impression that Zia wants nothing to do with her. Ultimately, this episode reminds us that anytime we feel lonely, our families are always there to love us, even if we don't always trust them under external circumstances. A fantastic Holiday episode, and certainly one of the standouts of the most recent seasons.
very nice episode and another solid outing from season 23. i've seen a handful of episodes from this season now and i'm being consistently pleased. this is shaping up to be the best of the post season 14 seasons, though there's still a good run of episodes which could disappoint me.
there was a tonne of sign and background gags in this episode, or things that weren't immediately played for laughs. kudos for that: i think something that made the simpsons great was the depth of its comedy, meaning that re-watches were as rewarding - if not moreso - than the initial viewing. there were also a good number of screw the audience jokes. i'm a massive fan of those jokes and they all worked fairly well here. kudos also for writing homer in a vaguely subtle way. too often is homer written such that everything he says is meant to be funny, and too often is he written in such a way that he comes across as an over emotional, or an insincerely emotional lunatic. he was subtle here. not everything that he said was insane and at times - particularly in that basement scene - what he was saying sounded sincere and heartfelt. nicely done. bart and lisa were also well written, especially when together. nothing special was said when the two of them were drunk in the treehouse but (simpsons writers take not) IT WAS A JOY TO SEE THE TWO OF THEM SPEAKING LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE, WITHOUT EVERYTHING BEING A SHIT JOKE.
however, i think that maybe the episode was trying to do too much and as a result, the episode felt as if it was pulled over too much "plot space". i'd have rathered the episode shed the stuff about maggie and maybe spend a bit more time on the bart/lisa stuff. also, some of the jokes were over-explained, or narrated to the audience, and that's annoying (though i can't think of any off the top of my head now. i'm writing this review 6hr after i watched the episode). regardless, it was a joy to watch. a very solid 4/5.
