Ohhhhh, this was not a good milestone episode.

It started off with a very interesting idea. I loved the idea of the town getting so fed up with The Simpsons that they would try and banish them. And the mysterious cabal of citizens that were clearly just guys we already know under masks was funny.

And everything from there just felt SO derivative. Simpsons start a new life in a different town. Been there. And the resolution to the interesting plot just led to...essentially re-locating Springfield. This wasn't just a lazy cop-out ending, but it's one that they've actually done before (and better) back when Homer was Sanitation Commissioner.

When your ending consists of a half-hearted blowoff done in two minutes, followed by a "witty" message asking fans to get some fresh air before tearing this a new one on the internet, you've failed as a milestone episode!

Well, did you get any fresh air?

After not seeing Simpsons for awhile, I thought it was just ok. I loved the through the years coach scenes. A little surprised to see the disturbing hanging scene as well as the black and white Asian one. Maggie was pretty much the star of the show. It was nice to see Marge and Homer be bad together instead of Homer does something stupid. I do agree, it was not that compelling of an episode for a milestone. Then again, I don't remember the last time they had one. All in all, it was a good episode in a show that is well past its prime with a lot of their characters.

I hadn't seen the show in a long while, and I laughed a lot. The Burns/Smithers jokes were all home(r) runs.

Movie was awesome. DiCaprio, Waltz, and Fox lit up the screen, but Sam Jackson deserves awards for this. Loved the big cameo scene with Don Johnson, when they're all on horseback, easily the most twstedly funny scene in the movie.
