    Everyone else seems so nonchalant about it, but Lisa looks pretty freaked out. Nice touch.

    This is also a good example of how they used to do parodies right, back in the day. It’s funnier after you’ve seen the movie, but still good even if you haven’t.

      That’s pretty much how you do a good pop culture parody (at least that’s how The Amazing World of Gumball does them).

        Yup. I didn’t see the movie until after this episode, but that’s okay because you don’t need to know the source material to get the jokes.

    There’s something that I noticed some time ago and it’s a very, very minor problem but it slightly bugs me (I still love this segment though).

    Burns and Smithers cut cable TV and take the beer away, and that’s what drives Homer mad, but he loses his urge to kill his family when Lisa gives him Willie’s portable TV, which only gets regular TV. Why didn’t Homer watch network TV before? The joke can’t be that Homer finds network TV to be terrible, because in that case he would have killed his family.

      Oh Bart, cartoons don’t have to be 100% realistic.

        This is like the third or fourth time I post a direct link to Frinkiac and the post doesn’t appear. Is the spam filter causing problems?
