    This is one of those episodes I kind of like, but won’t really go out of my way to watch. I can’t quite put my finger on it, because I can’t think of anything necessarily “bad” about it. Maybe I need to watch it again.

      I cant put my finger on it either. It’s not unlike similar episodes from the classic era. Take Barts Inner Child for example; town gets brainwashed.

      But that one had Albert Brooks to give it that extra punch. Maybe this episode is just missing something like that to help it stand out?

      Yeah no idea.

    I think I’ve figured out what happened with the show.

    I liken the transition between classic Simpsons & ZS to a cancer patient. At some point in its heyday, the show started to develop cancer cells which would’ve initially been misdiagnosed as benign but would gradually prove malignant. All was well at first; after all, it was still 99% itself despite the slowly developing & growing tumors which at first were so minuscule as to be undetectable. But alas, this wouldn’t last long, for eventually the cancer would take over, slowly killing its host & gradually depriving it of its vitality & vigor until it would die a slow, painful death; yet althewhile the cancer cells would imitate the original tissue they slowly replaced until the show would become 100% cancer passing itself off as its host which had been dead & gone for who knows how long exactly.

    Good analogy?

      It’s pretty good, although I’ve stuck with the zombie theme in saying that early episodes suffering from a subtle decline are like a “freshly bitten” zombie. You know something’s wrong with the person, you just can’t place it, and other people in the group keep trying to defend them, either due to denial or willful ignorance. But then as the wound starts festering and the infected person starts eying everyone’s craniums, you get more and more suspicious until the bitten individual latches on to one of the last stubborn members in the group who is in mid speech defending them, and takes a bite out of their face. At that point, most of the group acts accordingly, and anyone still willing to defend the zombie deserves what’s coming to them, getting killed or infected themselves.

      But the problem with Zombie Simpsons is that there’s a disproportionate amount of defenders in denial while the stinking, rotting corpse is gnawing on their skulls. We’re past B-flick territory and are firmly entrenched in Z-grade scripts.

        Well whatever it is, whether virus-induced ‘animated’ corpses (pun intended) or a fictional mutant form of cancer, it’s gotta be something sci-fi.
