    After watching this, I wondering if the FG writers can write a better Simpsons episode than the Simpsons writers... maybe even better than Family Guy or American Dad.

    i laughed a couple times. i loved that james woods joke because i always laughed about them both having him as a guest. it was really fun overall, and even though the first act with the whole women thing was a waste of time, i felt like the rest was pretty good. 4/5 i suppose.

    my dad particularly enjoyed the "we only usually do these things for a half hour so i'm tired" gag.

    the only part that i didn't care too much for was the fight, but the emmy joke in there was good.

    It also had a real Simpsons Movie-ish vibe to it that I really appreciated. The Family Guy writers/animators knew they had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to write these characters and locations, so it was cool that they swung for the fences in making it feel big and grandiose.

    I love how there's been all this complaining about how horrible it's going to be, then it comes out and everyone likes it.

    What I like most about this episode, is not just the laughable humor, the morals, or the decent storytelling or surprisingly that the crossover works, it's also that the Simpsons feel more alive than any recent season. Why is that?

    Seriously, can someone explain why this crossover episode feels more alive than any other episode the Simpsons crew has made in recent years.

    I thought it was pretty good until Homer and Peter started fighting, then things got a little bit too ridicules. I'll give it a high 3/5.

    what i liked (and i'm being loose with the word "liked"):
    james woods
    the emmy joke
    the cleveland show joke
    kang and kodos w/ roger
    "we usually only do these things for a half hour"
    grampa running over peter
    kool-aid man


    everything else was pretty terrible. probably better than "clown in the dumps" which i didn't see, but still terrible. a generous 2.5/5 rounded down to a 2/5.

    Most outside writers can write a better Simpsons episode than the Simpsons writers... because they'll actually value the importance of what they're contributing to unlike most of the current staff and be especially motivated to treat the characters and franchise justly. That's a big reason why freelance writers and first-time writers have produced some of the most memorable Simpsons episodes in the modern HD era. The rest of the slackers don't get motivated unless they're churning out a format bender (Kimball & Maxtone-Graham), personally motivated to produce an iconic episode (Burns) or being showrun by Selman to keep them focused.

    If nothing else, The Simpsons Guy came off as refreshing. The voice actors really amped up their delivery in the booth and it felt like a lot of classic era supporting characters (pre-Disco Stu & Gil) were dropping by for a rare visit.

    Was there a Seth MacFarlane appearance? There was a Matt Groeing appearance in the courtroom.

    I agree. This was one of the best FG episodes in years. I also loved the scene with Kang and Kodos, not to mention the entire courtroom scene was hysterical

    coulda been an interesting way to bow both shows out at the same time

    Legitimately enjoyed this, even more than I expected. The entire courtroom sequence was a delight, and the chicken fight was more entertaining than I expected.

    For the most part, this was really good. There were a few things that I didn't care for, like the gas station scene and the car wash scene (seeing Homer do that stuff...I just don't like it), and the fight lasted a little too long, but other than that, this was pretty enjoyable. My favorite plot, though probably the shortest, was the Lisa/Meg one. I felt like they had a really nice friendship, and the ending to it was very sweet. The other plots were good too, though. I'll give this a 4/5. I'm impressed.

    yeah i disliked the car wash scene the most probably. the entire car search seemed a bit pointless, but i liked the giant magnet and moleman using the griffin's car as pants (definitely a wtf gag)

    I enjoyed the car wash scene more than I expected. It wasn't THAT much grosser than they've depicted Homer's fat in the past. Also, this was very much a Family Guy episode and not a Simpsons episode, so the crude stuff didn't bug me as much as it could have. It felt like what it was - Family Guy visiting the world of The Simpsons.

    This was pretty damn great for a crossover episode. And as much as I dislike crossover episodes, this made me laugh more than any Simpsons or Family Guy episode has made me laugh in years. In particular the duff vs pawtucket bear stuff was great (all the stuff poking fun at the two shows). And to me the family guy writers handled the simpsons characters surprisingly well. 4.5/5, 4/5 for the poll.

    My only complaints were some of the more dragged on scenes (the car wash, gas gag as mentioned earlier, and overly long and gruesome chicken fight). Some of the humour also didn't work well with the simpsons characters and just felt awkward (some of the darker and cruder jokes). The prank call in particular was pretty cringe worthy, not for the rape joke itself, but for the oddness of it occurring in the simpsons universe is what threw me off.

    It was really good. Woulda been way better if Harry shearer had been in it. Its a shame the only Simpsons he will associate with is the hollowed-out corpse of a show thats currently airing.

    the whole joke was the juxtaposition of the shows style of humor compared to the simpsons. it wasn't executed that great but i didn't outright hate the joke

    To me it's kind of sad that the Family Guy writers appear to write a better Homer than the Simpsons writers currently do.

    I don't even know why they'd give him a line if Harry declined the episode.

    It was just an "eh" when Quagmire asked him how he felt about sex. And I guess they just really wanted to do the Lenny and Carl/Quagmire and Cleveland comparison.
