Better than the episode from 19 weeks ago, but I still like the one from 27 weeks ago more.

Best episode of the season, but that's not saying much.

A few smiles, a few laughs, that's about it. Pretty typical as of late.

Great couch gag though.

I thought this was a great episode. Homer feeding pizza to his fat rolls has me literally laughing out loud.

The couch gag was classic.

for the fact that Dr. Hibbert was out of sync with his fellow parishioners during the gospel singing.

Groucho, how dare you bring South Park into a Simpsons thread?! Simpsons thread are reserved for Family Guy comments only.

One of the best Simpsons in in a long time. Easily one of my top 10.
Ralph had a good line "I laid an egg in my pants"
Homer's Fat rolls was great. And making fun of the OC and all that watch it is good for a laugh

You realize that these things happen in real life, right? If only one show can reference any given topic, TV would have died about three days after it started.

Probably the best and most coherent episode in the past 3 or 4 seasons although the end was a bit lame. The coach gag freaked me out because I thought my wife was doing something with the remote (and we didn't watch it live!).
