They had the potential for a great plot with Apu and the Trader Joe's facsimile. Not only was it something different, but it also had some great humorous bits thrown in, particularly with the Apu/Snake role reversal. But then, like many Simpsons plots that show great potential, they just gave it a random, abrupt ending and just moved on.

Instead, they focused on a more recycled plot, with Bart creating a town-wide phenomena while Homer doesn't realize that he's actually Angry Dad Mr. Fatso. Yeah, Bart making himself famous off Homer-inspired graffiti was ok, but reminded me too much of when Bart made himself famous off a Homer-inspired internet cartoon. There were a few moments of funny here and there, but Homer stuffing Bart into a rabbit cage was a little much.

This was a middling episode where, by the time I was done watching, couldn't remember anything that made me laugh out loud, but nothing that outraged me either. I did like the plot of Bart exploring his El Barto history a little more, since that's the kind of stuff this show should be doing - paying off recurring characters and moments a little more.

Not really impressed.

Is the "Obey" grafitti thing really a big enough cultural "thing" to be satirizing? I'd never heard of those three guys- maybe just that's me not being hip enough.
Are they big enough that it matters they did their own voices? They used to get Sting and Paul McCartney- people with recognizable voices and names.

If this show keeps on going, eventually I may get to voice myself on the show.

I did like Homer's car being ten times more valuable-"Five hundred dollars?"

It was the first episode ever where someone I would consider a friend appeared, so I was totally in love with it.

Reading this series has been on my list for a while. I know it's going to be a task. I'm not daunted, but I just find it amazing that with only ten hours of TV to cover a thounsand page book, they're adding scenes.
