The Couch Gags continue getting more and more elaborate with a nice Avatar-themed one.
Always loved a good episode centered around Mr. Burns. His elaborate death announcement harkens back to a much-funnier time in Simpsons lore, reminding me of seasons 5 and 6, when Burns episodes hit their absolute peak.
Great stuff this week. Loved watching Smithers toil away for Dick Cheney. And did they introduce a Jersey Shore-style character? Seaside Heights, indeed!
Nothing will top Maggie trying to shoot Mr. Burns again.
Mr. Burns: Taking an idea I got from a Stephen King book, I'm going to cover this town with a DOME! Hahaha! HAHAHAHA! Lenny: It's been done. Mr. Burns: Really? (to Smithers) Did YOU know about this?

The Simpsons writers are always gold when it comes to biting the hand that fed them ... ;)
"All RAW is these days is a cheap version of Saturday Night Live, so if you wanna tune in to watch the amazing star power of Al Sharpton and Nancy O'Dell, go ahead! Who's gonna host next week, Big Bird? Wow, that's must-see TV!" - John Morrison (10/16/09 Smackdown!)
I haven't watched the show yet but it sounds like they took a small joke (and a bad one to boot) and totally stretched it out in both length and sensitivity. At some point, it needs to stop being offensive just for the sake of being offensive.
