Hahaha, very good so far! Lots of fast quips and visual gags that made me laugh out loud!!

Martin's head as the suggestion box
Everyone looking at Smithers
Moe was hilarious in the first part

So now the question is... are they 2 weeks ahead of the new Poseidon movie, 34 years behind the old version, or 5 months behind the TV version?

I was thinking at how coincidental it was that there was a Poseidon part in there and how the movie is coming out so soon. Isn't it a WB flick too? So it's not likely a tie in for Fox, but more a coincidence.

Other than the "don't know how to end it" ending, pretty good episode.

I loved Marge's line about having Bart tell the second story because it's usually the weakest.

Yeah, Lisa's story was a standalone classic. The others were still OK as well. Good episode. This season is shaping up to be one of the best.

Good episode. Unfortunately I missed the first 5 minutes, as my DVR didn't read it as a new episode. Guess that'll teach me to not have my ass on the couch at 7pm CST on Sunday.

I thought seafaring tales would have been hackneyed, but this ep was actually very funny.

I also love the Poseidon parody the best. Anyone else catch Barney for a split second hanging on to his booze as the ship is flipping over instead of hanging on to something on the ship That was great.
