    Hopefully this episode's better than the last one. Judging by the quality of the last couple of episodes, they're mostly average, so I guess this'll be the same. I'll give my opinion tomorrow.

    EDIT: Never mind. The episode's so far funny, but Lisa was annoying early on.

    Reminds me of an earlier plot, with Homer just being hilariously greedy.

    Max von Sydow is still alive? Huh.

    Didn't Milhouse's mother date when they were seperated?

    This was a good episode! I liked how everything was tied together in the end. I felt like last week there were a lot of loose ends that they didn't quite wrap up.

    This episode had a fun story, it was really funny, and I think I even might have learned something by the end of it! I'm not sure I could ask for more! I also thought the directing and art was really good! I liked that shot where Homer, Marge, and Bart are talking about how Milhouse is starting to lose it, before they cut to him playing Dance Dance Revolution without the TV on.

    Probably the funniest line for me was when the forger said to Homer: "Now you I respect!" After Homer explained he was just in it for the money instead of any type of art appreciation.

    I feel like this show gets better every season during these past few seasons!

    Why are Marge and Homer so skeptical about Lisa having a pet, they've established her as responsible for Snowball and she's also been shown as a good babysitter, not that it matters since will never see this pet geuinea pig again.

    I thought Marge painted that sail boat picture and had multiple copies but whatever to get the plot going.

    Why the entire town Springfield care about this dilemma that's stretching it hard even for this show.
    Why does it matter if Kirk dated another woman when they've established Luann still has affairs while married!

    Would have disliked this episode if it wasn't for typical funny jokes and a pretty satisfying and clever ending.

    I even like Lisa's new pet guiena pig.

    This episode was average. I liked the DDR gag, too. But still, these things bothered me: The giunea pig was never brought up again after the first act, annoying gags (The whoa whoa whoa and the ''uhh...'' gag), and the part where rocks with taped-on notes are thrown into the Simpsons' house.

    I liked how it had no couch gag, though, and some parts were good.

    I even liked the Toys R Us spoof called "TOYS B THIS".
