With the exception of the Electric Car, this was a pretty weak episode. The plot was horrendous, and Skinner's mom was even more annoying than usual

Agreed. Colin Ka-POW was pretty funny though.

The general slams of Epcot were good. That place is boring.

This episode was pretty damn funny. A lot of subtle humor...more sight gags than one liners.

Lot of funny stuff, even if the plot wasn't that great. The eye-soap was great: "The hurting is love!"

I thought it was pretty good, the best episode of the season by far.

Bart: They have an award for teaching?

Marge: Hey. They have the Latin grammys.




Where's my all white awards show, CBS?

Not bad, but I thought KOTH and Malcom were better. I'm glad some people enjoyed it though.

Pretty funny stuff, it was one of the better episodes this season.

Homer: "Purple Rain!"

Little Richard: "Shut Up!"

Homer: "Michael Jackson just told me to shut up!"

I think that was one of the animators from the "Poochy" episode. I can see why you thought that though.

You might be right, but he DOES look like a Beavis & Butthead char.

It was an average episode...there were worse. There were two odd parts that didn't "work" for me...the scene with Abe in WWI wasn't that funny, and in the end, when the credits were rolling, they had that weird pie scene with Homer that must have been cut out. I think it was better that they left it out.

I really enjoyed the episode. The epcot jokes were well placed and the ending with the 14 buck churrio was on target if you have visited the parks lately.

Though the story at the beginning was a little draggy. Better then the last few new episodes were the beginning was great but the ending sucked. Enjoyed it a lot.

This episode had me laughing from beginning to end.

Lots of funny bits [the Wrestling bit -- if only stuff like that was allowed on the WWE], but the funniest [IMO] was the "Electric Car".

"What did I think of the pie?"

Great episode with a nice sentimental touch to it. Loved the EFCOT stuff and the Enron Ride of Lost Dreams.
