    The first two skits were rather disappointing but the last was actually not bad and at times pretty damn funny, though the in-between breaks or whatever ya call 'em with Troy McClure were the best parts in my opinion Phil Hartman was a legend.

    3/5
    Oh my great good God! Gentlemen, your attention please. I am detecting a gigiantic amphibious life-form, it's 80 meters long and it's heading this way. Oh good glayven it's on my shoe. It's a small frog, just get off, just get off there, just get out of it, get out of it. Stupid machine, oh wait a minute, this isn't the Monsterometer, it's the Frog-Exaggerator Mm-hai.

    I realize that this is a parody episode, and it does this very well. Unfortunately, while the parodies are spot-on, I just didn't think the episode was funny. It gets some points, but I can't rate this higher than a 3/5. It's certainly not awful though.

    I'm pretty sure most people got it was a parody, they just didn't think it was handled well (or funny). I mean just realizing this is a parody isn't the only thin that automatically gets this a 5/5 or anything. It's the execution of it. I myself loved this and consider it a strong offering from my favorite season, but others didn't. That doesn't necessarily mean they didn't get what the episode is trying to accomplish, it just means they didn't like it regardless of humor or plot.

    Does being a parody automatically make it great? Or does being great make it "great'?
    Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.

    I tried watching a new episode the Simpsons, but I realized the show hit a new low, like a brand new, underground parking structure of sadness.

    It's pretty good, but loses steam in the final act (although I liked the joke of Lisa's replacement) and it makes the whole episode weaker overall. The first act is the best, the second act is funny but a little weak, and the final act is a boring and a banal parody that had been done already to many times.

    3/5

    No, but maybe I didn't specify particularly well. It's a parody episode, that's great.

    The Wiggum part has some of my favourite Simpsons jokes. Whoever came up with the idea of having a "warning gator" is a genius.

    Wow, I liked this a lot more as a kid than I do now. This episode was cheesey, humourless and had no actual storyline. 1.5/5

    The Love matic grampa was classic one of my fave Simpsons shorts, the other 2 segments were utter garbage, the replacement Lisa in Variety Hour really Pisses me off for some reason.
    Unable to rate such an inconsistent episode.

    That was kinda the point of the episode. It was suppose to be viewed as a so bad/cheesy that it's funny point of view. It was suppose to be mocking how cheesy live action sitcoms as well as Spin-offs can be. If you view it in that respect and not as a regular Simpsons episode it can be pretty funny.

    I hate this episode because I am unable to distinguish between parody and truth!

    This could very well be my most hated episode of the series. It is probably the only episode that makes me uncomfortable to watch (for the second and third segments, anyway). The first segment isn't nearly as bad as the other two, but it is boring. The second segment is bad, especially with the laugh track. But nothing could prepare me for the absolutely revulsive third segment. It is probably the worst thing the Simpsons has ever produced (although I can think of two other segments that I hate as well, and I would have to watch them before saying that with certainty). I realize this episode is "bad on purpose," but that doesn't justify how horribly bad it is. I guess I am just the kind of person that is revulsed by this kind of thing regardless of whether or not it is a parody. And even when it isn't offensively bad, this episodes seems to move along very slowly at parts (which is the main flaw with the first segment, IMO, but is a problem in the other segments as well). And, again, I realize this was a parody and that it was supposed to be bad, etc. I hate it regardless of that. This isn't the kind of humour that appeals to me at all. 1/10

    And I thought Simpsons fans were intelligent enough to understand satire.

    Is it that hard to accept that some people understand that this episode is a parody, but don't like it anyway?
