    Eh, I see no talkback, it's seven and half hours (here) until the premiere, what the heck. Discuss the new Simpsons Halloween special (FOX at 8) here!...

    .

    The commercial says it at 8:00, 7:00 central (I'm in the 8' range), and its about 8:10 and King of the Hill is on. What's going on?

    They delayed KotH for some stupid football game. It started around 7:50.

    After the plot of the first segment, no one is allowed to call Family Guy a Simpsons ripoff ever again.

    Ever.

    Did Lisa eat a Butterfinger bar?

    Did they cut the opening? N/M, clever title screen.

    Hehe, nice commentary on Halloween and Christmas at the beginning by the aliens. That was hilarious!

    Love the chase sequence, especially Maggie with the scythe.

    How do you kill Death?

    I'm with Homer, According to Jim sucks.

    Love how they got Homer to be the Grim Reaper.

    I wish I went to Springfield Elementary.

    Just like Homer to abuse his powers, too.

    Love how Homer tricked God, that was awesome. What movie were they parodying?

    Yay! A Frink segment!

    ACME Dynamite! Awesome!

    I like Lisa's summarization of the 21st Century.

    Yea, who cares about Flanders anyway?

    I wanna go to Sweeden! :anime:

    Yay for continuity between the segments!

    Sears is evil, I knew it!

    Segment #2 wasn't as good as Segment #1

    I like the cracks at 70's comics and Hanna-Barbara.

    Love Bart playing with Homer & Nelson.

    CBG has a lightsaber! Awesome!

    I love all the Red-Button changes, especially the Bobbleheads, the Fantastic Four, and the TV Guide.

    Why are they so obsessed with the Benny Hill chase scene parodies lately?

    Clearly, the highlight of tonight's episode was the scene where Bart & Milhouse made the donuts disappear, and then made Homer's clothes disappear, and made Nelson appear, and made Nelson's clothes disappear. It was good ol' stupid hilarity, executed with perfect timing. It's rare these days that a Simpsons gag has good comedic timing.

    Other than that, it was an okay episode.

    Did anyone else think some of the dialogue in the intro scene sounded Homestar Runner-ish? I guess it's hard to remember, but Grampa's dialogue reminded me of the King of Town, and something Marge said reminded me of Strong Bad.

    The baton of incontinuitous stories has long since been passed to Futurama. Treehouse of Horror, the one episode where Simpsons SHOULD be goofy, is slow and trodding, much like Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls.

    Ripping off of Family Guy ("Death is a *****") and Futurama ("Time Keeps Slipping Away"), although they tried some new jokes, but none of them were that funny.

    What I'd like to know is why they're throwing in random, unintelligent pop-culture references. That's not what makes Futurama funny. And Family Guy never threw out a celebrity name for no reason. There was always a twist, a spin on the issue with Family Guy. Not so here.

    The only interesting part of the special was the opening segment.

    And one funny line:

    "I'm going to play naked basketball!" "No, you're not."
