    I watched this episode yesterday and oh my, most people were annoyed by the animation back in 1995, but it’s pretty smooth and charming compared with the crappy, boring animation they broadcast since S8+. “HD animation” (misleading expression: cel animation could be digitally scanned at 4K or bigger… imagine a Season 4 episode at that resolution and without the technical mistakes and don’t-give-a-shit mentality of the DVD releases like mosquito noise and inconsistent colors and wrong framming…) doesn’t mean your animated world needs to be sterile. Look at the “Disney homage” couch gag, it didn’t have amazing animation but it was better than usual.

    Quite funny nearly all reviews from Simpsons Archive disliked this episode and were worried about the show running out of ideas. And this was part of the S6 production run, wasn’t it?. Things would start going downhill from S7 onwards. Yet here we are, 21 years later, and Fox isn’t a hardcore sex channel yet but the Simpsons won’t. Fucking. Die.

    Interesting bit from the capsule: they used a modified version of a “fancy program” that could render the episode in real time. The first step to make the show being completely made by algorithms and compilers by 2030, on one of those five computers owned by European kings.

      I love Homer and Marge’s expressions here. Why does he look so stupid? Why isn’t he watching TV on the living room? Why does Marge look happy and excited about opening the last letter after reading “some guys are coming” from the last letter? I dunno, but this shot is great. The characters are themselves, and there’s humanity and spirit in the animation itself.
