    I disagree, The Girl Who Slept Too Little has a bizarre plot with basically the cemetery moving next door, and a dream sequence has always been a lazy plot resolution. Also, Homer and Marge act pretty hypocritical in this episode, they only did something (going to the psychologist) because Lisa being in the their sleeping room bother them.
    In Halloween of Horror, the reason of Lisa's fear and her reaction (finding comfort in a plush instead of walking off at night in a cemetery) are more suitable for an 8-year old. Marge and Homer are better characterized here since they do their best to protect their children or assurance them a good Halloween. TGWSTL might be funnier, but HoH has definitely a better plot.

    Halloween of Horror was overhyped on here, it's a pretty meh episode really. The Girl Who Slept Too Little is great.

    The Girl Who Slept Too Little: 4
    Halloween of Horror: 4

    The Girl Who Slept Too Little is pretty good but it´s a little more on the dull side. My opinion on Halloween Of Horror might change on rewatches but for now i prefer it.

    Girl Who Slept Too Little is really forgettable to me, although maybe it's high time I saw it again.

    The motorcycle fight in Take My Wife, Sleaze is dumb, but I find the ending of Brake My Wife, Please to be far stupider. It's another example of a celebrity inexplicably coming in and fixing everything, the laziest possible way to resolve a conflict. Not to mention that the ending of Brake My Wife, Please in particular is so goddamn saccharine. Now that I think about it, it's probably one of my least favourite moments from the whole show, easily worse than most Scully-era plot twists.

    I think both are fine episodes, but the third act of Brake My Wife, Please is really stupid.

    The third act of Take My Wife Sleaze goes a bit off the rails and the final fight is awful, but it's a pretty good episode for the most part, I don't really understand the hate for it.
    Brake My Wife Please's plot just goes constantly off the rails. I mean, basically the main conflict (Marge's hate for Homer) comes out of nowhere and there's barely any conclusion for it, just another dinner to say sorry. It was already done in Marge Gets a Job and way better.

    Take My Wife, Sleaze: 6
    Brake My Wife, Please: 3

    Spin-Off Showcase offers a smartass satire on crappy sitecoms with an original concept ment to bash Fox and his askings, and with which they had the balls to go for it.

    Edit: And on a personal note, the last time I watched it I found it really hilarious, even the last segment didn't bother me.

    Krusty Gets Kancelled is really lazy in comparison.

    Krusty Gets Kancelled wasn't as funny as I remembered when I last saw it, but still good. The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase is the "worst" episode of season 8, which still is complimental.

    For me, Krusty Gets Kancelled wins just by a hair's breath, since it is more memorable for me.

    'Spin-off Showcase' is awful, and at least 'Kancelled' has a number of funny parts.

    Match 298: Treehouse of Horror XXII vs. Treehouse of Horror XXVI

    XXVI seems to be as widely despised.

    XXVI easily. It's not bad at all. XXII is terrible.

    XXVI was abysmal as well, still a tiny bit better than XXII.

    Didin´t like either but the Bob segment did have more laughs then the Flanders segment in thoh XXII and while the latter two were pretty terrible i do think they were more tolerable then THOH XXII´s first and third segments.

    XXII used to be my least favorite THOH but XXVI came in and now it's a tie between them. There're both insulting, and alarming of how the writers don't give any damn to the writing of their stories. The Diving Bell and the Butterball is by far the worst segment of all time. But all the segments in XXVI are uttercrap as well, and Dial D for Diddly is better than everything from it.
    So I'm going to give XXII some love for once, even if it's still more like giving some love to dogshit.

    XXVI is a horrendous Treehouse Of Horror, but I wouldn't say it beats XXII and XXI. It's "just" the third worst one. But having said that... Oh my God. Both of these are so goddamn awful I wish my eyes and ears weren't present during the viewing of them. Homerzilla was a DISASTER. They try to parody the 1954 original plus the 2014 remake and fail at both. And as if that wasn't bad enough, there are these T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E bits with the executives! They are so awfully unfunny!
    The other two segments were just mediocre though, but that doesn't mean the episode is made "better" exactly. The "best" segment is the first because, well, Sideshow Bob killed Bart. But even THAT one sucks! It was so poorly executed!!
    Treehouse Of Horror XXII has 3 1/10 segments though, so that one is the worst ever. In that retrospect, I suppose XXVI "wins".
    Congratulations for just being a lesser W. Bush, you pathetic little vermin!
