Mr. Burns has embraced technology! And not just the Trap Door app, either. (There really IS an app for just about everything!)
This was my favorite episode of the season, by far. Only Homer would be dumb enough to destroy hundreds of robots that were specifically designed to make his job exponentially easier. Homer's destruction of hundreds of Datas (Hello, Brent Spiner!) was endlessly entertaining.
More! I want more fun with robots! Thumbs way the hell up! This is the first episode in a long time that I feel safe in calling a classic!
B13: Alcohol is harmful to humans. Homer: Yeah, yeah, yeah, save your breath. B13: We have no breath. R62: We do vent nitrogen once a year. B13: You do not want to be around for that.
Robots: Eliminate impediment! Eliminate... Homer: Just say "Kill me," jerks! Robots: Kill him! Kill him!
I had the complete opposite reaction that John did. Cloud Atlas was one of the more extraordinary films I've seen in a seen. Sure, the "we're all connected" theme is a bit simplistic but man, what a ride.
