Pssh, the common folk WISH it was that easy to get into E3.

As a big time gamer, I got a hoot out of the various video game parodies. Homer going into FPS-mode ruled it!

The rest of episode couldn't really keep the awesome going, although the dream sequence was pretty good. Gordon Ramsay hijacking Marge's dream was worth a good laugh.

Good stuff this week.

Homer putting quarters into the console system was so simplistic, goofy, and dumb. I am still laughing about it and I plan to do this every time I go to a friends house for now on.

Homer's reaction to the goop in a pancake is the same reaction I have.

I'd also like to express my affinity for this episode. I liked the whole thing - the best part was, it made sense all the way through and yet still featured the absurd (Homer getting caught in a meth lab when Marge sent him to the wrong address). Consistent characters and several laughs as well. Well done.

Another episode with some very dense-with-gags moments - I think the E4 convention hall was designed to get people to either DVR the episode or buy the DVD later just so they could frame-by-frame and get all the goodness.

The "TV chefs on space hoppers" lineup during Marge's (or was it Gordon's?) dream was also great. I especially loved the back where Paul Prudhomme was being used as the Hoppity Hop.

But mostly, I enjoyed the totally valid stereotyping of foodies as hipster pricks.

LATE EDIT: AND the awesome Tim and Eric song, which I totally forgot to mention earlier! If you weren't really listening, there were a lot of "wait, what?" lines that went by, but it all made sense when I saw Tim & Eric in the closing credits.

Solid episode and, yeah, if you were watching it live, you missed out on a lot. I thought "Electronic Crafts" was a really clever gag, but my favorite was that Protovision had a booth!

And any show that takes me to a Singapore hawker center (with Anthony Bourdain!) always earns extra points with me, although the real places look nothing like the second-rate TV Chinatown they showed. (And kway chap is a soup dish.)

Didn't Mark Hamill and/or Adam West show up on that too? I vaguely recall hearing about that, but I never get to/bother to watch this.
