Simple Simpson Review

Rate this Entry
Review: "Simple Simpson" 10/10.
I remember this episode as the first Simpsons episode I ever watched, and I loved it. After watching it again, I still love it!
What I liked:
1. First off, the bacon commercial is pretty funny once you realise Ralph is on it.
2. World's Biggest Ribbon getting a ribbon was a riot.
3. Homer standing up for Lis' was great to see.
4. Homer's Pie-Man shadow made me burst out laughing.
5. The Fist-Face scene was humourous, but how did Millhouse not see that coming?
6. Spider-Man style kiss scene.
6. The Pie-Cave. Batman wouldn't be proud.
7. Homer falling asleep on Burns' couch =
8. Homer calls the Dalai Lama the "talking llama".
9. Moe calling Homer a "dumbass" was funny.
10. Cupcake Kid! I think that alter-ego should come back. Either that, or Pie-Man and Bartman team up.
Notable Quotes:
"I'm no super genius! Or ARE I?"
"Don't do the crime if you can't do the...Key Lime!"
"Homer Simpson away...I mean Pie-Man!"
Overall, a great episode, and a great Spider-Man parody episode. Episodes that feature a Lisa-Homer dynamic are usually my favourites, and this episode is no exception. The profuse amount of jokes and the mentioned character dynamic make this episode a true gem (to me, at least).

    I always found this episode overrated, but I can see the charm. Homer is really likable in it, and it contains a lot of easily appealing silly gags.

    It was really interesting to see such a positive review of a Jean era episode. I hope to see more reviews from you soon.

    This episode is an exception. It's a surprise he got this parody right without butchering it.

    There's no such thing as a dumb***. Dumbass on the other hand...

    I don't know, it's okay. I never understand the huge love for the episode, though. But it's at least not as overrated as I, D'oh-Bot.

    More reviews should do that "notable quote" thing.
    Quotes that are really great but are hidden in weak episodes are lost, but by being pointed out, they can gain traction.

    looking forward to more.
