Another really solid episode tonight if you ask me. The pixel opening theme/couch gag was awesome as was Homer's opening dream sequence with the homage to The Jetsons. The storylines for both Marge and Moe were good if you ask me and I liked that Christopher Lloyd was the voice of one of the cab drivers.

Agree with everything Mike86 said. I think this has been a particularly strong season. Did anyone else catch Bender's cameo in the dream sequence?

I like that they referenced Elon Musk's appearance on the show and that it had an impact on what was going on. That sort of got me thinking...has there ever been a cartoon show where characters aged naturally?

I thought the Pixelart intro was a fan thing, was cool seeing it air either way.

This season has been good but I didn't particularly like this one after the cool Pixel Art opening.

King of the Hill and South Park (well, kind of). King of the Hill was the more mature and realiatic of the two.

I liked the pixel intro along with the Jetsons homage but the rest of the episode didn't do much for me.

I had considered those but I don't think they're exactly what I was talking about. I meant a show where the characters age and the character designs reflect that over time. In King of the Hill and South Park (and to some degree The Simpsons) there have been advancements associated with aging, but not exactly in a realistic manner.

I'm on board with the comments regarding this episode.

Pixel opening was great. the Jetsons short was fun and my GF picked up on Homer's line "Marge, shut off this crazy thing" (line George said at the ending credits when the dog walker went crazy) when they showed the old dot matrix printer.

But the rest of the episode was solid and liked the 2 plots and how they came together and even had a Harry Chapin song.

Yeah I mostly thought the episode was good because of the fact that it mostly focused on Marge and Moe who don't always have the best storylines. Not a spectacular episode but it was an enjoyable one.

I figured someone was just doing a Christopher Lloyd impersonation in this episode, nice to see it was actually him.

The opening was done by a couple of Aussie guys. They uploaded it and within 12 hours the producers had called them wanting to use it in the show.

Thought so, that makes it even cooler to see it on the air Some sue and send takedown notices, the Simpsons put it on air.

That is very cool, I had no idea.
