    One of the most staggeringly awful episodes of TV I've ever endured. Bottom five of all time, easily. F

    For me, it's one of those episodes that's extremely weak, but at the same time, I find it difficult to passionately dislike. It feels like another episode that's chiefly built around bringing in some prominent guest stars, and you could be forgiven for thinking it came from a pitch built around the punny episode title.

    I like Kent getting fed his quips through an earpiece (and the way it blew up on him), Krusty's terrible material (because it's for charity, of course), the joke about travel not being called in basketball, and Homer mixing up Andre Agassi with Andre the Giant. The outdoor surgery joke doesn't gross me out as such, but it's still cringe-worthy and unnecessary. Everything else is pretty standard for the era: unrelated first act that segues into the main plot (though I do kind of enjoy them poking fun at the formula), characters being a little too antagonistic with each other, and pretty much a non-ending. They end up on the sidelines watching the pros play, and just sort of forgive each other. Their conclusion that it's better to watch stuff than do stuff is kind of enjoyable cynical, but it's still a flat ending.

    I'll say 2/5 because there are parts that I enjoy and some merit to the premise, but it's a weak episode.
    A little less Generic than before.

    I can't believe I am saying this, but....

    The scene where Homer imagines Marge married to her own son is worse than the panda rape scene

    Eh, this episode is only noteworthy to me for being one of the first to use digital animation. The animation looks good, but I found the episode boring. It felt more like a Jean episode than a Scully one, not a good thing.

    Really? I think this screams Scully. The unrelated first act and Homer’s personality throughout the episode represent the worst of the Scully tenure (which overall really wasn’t that bad, but this one sucks).
