Unimaginably great, very strong, endless yuks and can't help but unreasonably raise my expectations for the rest of this season. Best possible use of Keifer Sutherland. It can't possibly be this good again...can it? Nonetheless, easy choice for me to sign on for the rest of the season (while assuming It's False will probably start the threads).

I was glad to see Nedna keep going. I hope this will cause Ned to be a little bit less religious, and take a walk on the wild side at times.

But new storylines (I hope) are always good. Not like that Princess Penelope disappearing into the ether.

The cynic in me went into this episode thinking, "Why are they bothering with Kiefer Sutherland playing a Jack Bauer-type character when they already HAD Jack Bauer on the show a couple of years ago?"

This episode shut me up very quickly. I enjoyed this one a lot. Wayne's a fun one-time-use character, even if I wouldn't mind if he came back under a different voice actor.

I was very anti-Nedna, so I'm disappointed in the result. But it's nothing that'll stop me from watching or anything.

Yeah, very solid episode, and the plot didn't make me think "haven't we seen this before?" That's always a plus. Quite a few laughs too. No B-story, but it didn't hurt the episode at all.

OK, "unimaginably great" makes me wonder if you've ever seen, say A Streetcar Named Marge or Lisa's Rival, but I'm mostly with you. Probably the best ep they've done in years. Things like the Top Chef spoof ("I miss my soul patch") and the Taiwanese animation really had me laughing out loud.

I dunno, this episode seemed DENSE with comedy. The parade of stereotypes during the fight training kicked it into high gear and the Autotuned disaster survivor sealed the deal. The Taiwanese animation was spot on and mind-blowing - it's just the sort of thing I never thought I'd get on "The Simpsons" but I did AND it was so FUNNY. Even the Edna wink, which would normally be the type of thing that would get my eyes rolling, worked for me. I guess when I said "unimaginably great," I meant "I literally could not imagine The Simpsons being this great." (Maybe that's a problem with ME.)

Well, good call on it being Leben, once they said it was up to Nate to choose I knew he would be bringing back Chris. I'm not sure how I feel about it, I think it just shows a lack of planning on behalf of the creators and producers of the show.
