And now we've got Homer with yet another wacky new job. This felt like a repeat of so many plots that we've seen in the past and it's another one of those plots that suffers from an abrupt ending. Just another waste.
The B-plot with Milhouse and Lisa also felt like rehashing old territory. Worse yet, it was also guilty of rehashing an old cliched sitcom plot device of "I don't love, but now you're dating someone else, so now I do." I liked this a lot better when it was Meg and Neil on Family Guy.
Yeah, we've seen it before. And I didn't think they got as much out of the "Milhouse's girlfriend" storyline that they could've. I did like how Homer and Marge got Homer out of the haircutting business. And the "Killer" sign next to Moe. Then again, I generally love anything involving Moe on the show.
Not to say that Lacey isn't fetching, but during the double-teehee-check raise hand, Phil was about to gush. I think we're talking 0.9 on the lecch-on-Nicole-Sullivan scale here. J.K. Simmons > B.D. Wong
