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 Upcrossed 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?)
I'm always down for as many Stephen Hawking guest spots as they can give us. Flight of the Conchords ruled it. And I'm always a sucker for Krusty, so the B-plot was cool with me too. It's a good start for...22 seasons, so sayeth the Couch Gag.
