    I've never understood the massive hate these episodes get. At least they have a coherent plot unlike episodes like "Sunday, Cruddy Sunday".
    I suppose I find "Beyond Blunderdome" funnier though. Mel Gibson is a jerk in real life, but he's hilarious in this episode. There's so many great jokes in it.

    I'm not sure I would call "the wacky antics of Homer and Mel Gibson" a coherent plot. The Mr. Smith Goes to Washington remake wasn't much more than a thin frame to stuff Mel Gibson gags in. I will admit that at least both of these episodes are funny.

    Ugh, I always forget about this thread. In the last matchup I would have voted for Homer and Apu, although I like both episodes about the same. I like Apu as a character, but neither of these episodes is spectacular.

    Now for thext matchup... These are two of the worst episodes of all time. They are both either in my Bottom 10 or come very close to being in it. I tend to dislike episodes that heavily feature guest stars who play themselves, and both of these episodes also have absolutely terrible plots. I agree with pkkao about Beyond Blunderdome basically being "The Wacky Antics of Homer and Mel Gibson" (although I emphatically disagree about either episode being funny), and When You Dish Upon a Star has one of the worst third acts of all time, in which Homer attempts to murder three people because they are jerks or something. I guess I would say that I loathe Beyond Blunderdome slightly less, although it is very close. Although I feel filthy voting for either of these episodes.

    Not even close. Homer opens a museum of items from nasty celebrities, then three chase after him, then one of them injures himself trying to save one of them.

    Since it's tied, we should wait for one more vote before beginning the next one.

    I seem to remember Homer trying to knock them off the RV, the success of which would either kill or severely injure them. And why does he do this? Because they were chasing the museum he opened making fun of them, featuring their stolen items. Which he opened as revenge for them getting mad at him, after he betrayed their trust. This is Jerkass Homer at his worst.

    I think it's hard to choose, but A Hunka Hunka Burns In Love is slightly funnier and contains a lot of hilarious moments, whereas Monty Can't Buy Love is great too, but has a very weird, polarizing ending, so I choose A Hunka Hunka Burns In Love.
    Both episodes are underrated in my opinion, especially Monty Can't Buy Me Love.

    I actually don't mind Monty Can't But Me Love that much, but as I do quite like A Hunka Hunka Burns In Love so I voted for that instead.

    Again, I hate both of these episodes. Monty Can't Buy Me Love has an abysmal third act, but the entirety of A Hunka Hunka Burns in Love is abysmal. Mr. Burns is ridiculously out of character, his relationship with Gloria is impossible to believe, and I find it quite creepy.

    While Mr. Burns getting a girlfriend and saving her from a fire is pretty implausible, it did create some nice moments and some good jokes. I don't really care for Monty Can't Buy Me Love.

    Both are very good episodes exploring a different side of Sideshow Bob other than "kill Bart." I'd probably vote for Brother from Another Series on another day.

    Black Widower: 1
    Brother from Another Series: 0

    Also, for those of you who are creating these matches, you can vote on your own matches.

    Brother from Another Series is the second best Sideshow Bob episode, only behind Cape Feare. David Hyde Pierce did an amazing job voicing Cecil, and funnily enough when they are both talking to each other its like hearing Frasier and Niles talking to each other in Frasier, which I always appreciated. They even joked around with that.

    I never really watched Frasier, so I don't care about the Frasier references in Brother from Another Series (and I didn't like that they actually mentioned the show Frasier). However, that is still one of the funniest episodes of all time. Black Widower is very underrated, and it is also one of my favourite episodes, but Brother from Another Series slightly beats it.

    Well, "Black Widower" is my favorite Sideshow Bob-episode, since I think that's his best appearance, but after a few more watches, I've come to think "Brother From Another Series" is pretty good. (I hated it the first time I watched it because of how unfairly the police treated him plus the fact that he didn't try to kill Bart)
