The start of this week's episode is some of the funniest stuff I've seen out of this show in weeks. Although I can't believe they're just NOW getting to spoofing Bop It, since that toy's been around for years.

Like many episodes with solid concepts (and both plots were particularly solid), this one felt like it ended abruptly. Both plots didn't get enough of a payoff, especially Homer and Cletus. Cletus could always use more airtime.

Bonus points for the guest casting of Neve Campbell. Haven't seen "The Craft" in ages.

I think they've gotten to the point where they're recycling jokes.

They've overdone the "Now onto the highway, we'll be there in no time!" *massive traffic jam* "D'oh!" joke and its just not funny anymore.

And call me crazy, but was one of the witches an older female Ralph Wiggum, with looks and voice?

The Simpsons just hasn't been doing it for me the last few years. I think it's gotten too dark. Something like half the town going blind should really happen only in a Halloween episode. Then again, I had no idea what a Bop It was, so maybe I'm just old.

I did get two good laughs out of the episode--the spoof of the Sandra Oh scene from Sideways, and the bit about the tax-evading goat.

I believe Lisa already said she was a Wiccan in a previous episode, and Bart called her out for following Hollywood types on that. So it was odd, to me at least, they she didn't seem to know much about it here.

They've done alot of X-mas episodes and all three kids are still the same age and in the same grade. There isn't too much continuity on the show outside of Maude's death and Apu's many kids.

I get that there's some stuff you have to live with, as in all cartoons (such as the age thing). But I thought this was worth pointing out, at least.

I think the problem is that the Simpson's has an uneven approach to continuity at best. Some stuff counts, and some doesn't, but it's hard to know which is which unless they state it directly. Homer's definitely been to space and won a Grammy, and obviously none of the various summer break episodes have counted, but where do we stand on things like Grampa's renovation of the Retirement Castle in an early season, or the time Bart accidentally ran Itchy & Scratchy Studios out of business? I mean, they probably don't count because they're not important, but how important was the stuff with Homer, and it counts.

The running gag with the Koreans trying to get into the van was outstanding. Great episode.
