Well, you had to know that poor Grampa Simpson had a life's savings worth $250.

Had a few laughs from some reliable gags like Homer sucking up the cat with the Rug Dentist, Chief Wiggum's "too bad we only saw that in regular motion" line, and Homer's mannequin disguise.

But how many times can they play the "Nelson is poor" card? I feel like they've overplayed it these last few seasons. Although I can always appreciate the continued interaction between Nelson and Lisa and the ending with Mark Zuckerberg made up for the iffy plotline.

Thumbs up for the ending, but not much else. The premier with Flight of the Conchords spoiled me terribly.

The Itchy and Scratchy parody of Up crossed the line about twelve times. Shooting and killing the senior citizen cats, burying them, sucking their souls with a vacuum cleaner and then taking the bag out of the vacuum and setting it on fire. Wow. Like many Itchy and Scratchy shorts, I was cracking up and gasping with horror at the same time.

I don't want to be all Comic Book Guy, but wasn't Grandpa's inheritance a big box of mint-condition 1918 liberty-head silver dollars?

I think it's great that they finally got Mark Zuckerberg on the record, but actually I got more from guest star Muhammad Yunus (who sounded like he'd recorded his lines over Skype) - alas, the website went nowhere (or I spelled it wrong?)

Yes. And since the family already spent those he'd since been able to amass a nest egg of $250.

Wiggum blowing Lou's cover did it for me.

In my Thor review I joked Thor might end up as the best romantic comedy of summer 2011. But Crazy, Stupid, Love was really good. Finally saw Friends With Benefits and I thought it was even better, really terrific.
