Episodes like this really frustrate me. "Hey look! Lisa made Facebook, only we WON'T call it Facebook!" That already feels lazy in itself, but it sounds so much dumber when you remember that they already HAD Mark Zuckerberg and the actual Facebook on the show a year ago! They even acknowledged Facebook at the end with the Winklevosses, anyway! So what was the point?
So the laziness of this episode was a real turn-off. Some of the jokes were ok. Even if it was given away in the commercial, I still loved the Angry Nerds bit. But overall, it's a thumbs down for me on this one.
Oh, but the Letterman couch gag was a nice surprise.
The father and son have a touching death scene, punctuated by the Dad acting his death-gasps out loud at the Best Buy table. The Warcraft guys eye him warily. One of the kids then asks what they do now, and Eric says they can finally play the game.
