Hey Mike, I was wondering how come you did not make an entry about the Simpson's Treehouse of Horror XVI that aired this past sunday ? You usualy make comments of a special Simpsons episode, although I must admit it was not on of the best.. But how about Family Guy ? I think that was the best espisode of all ! The intro, with the Ben Laden bloopers and Stewie's Big Wheel ride, I can't recall the last time I laughed that hard !!!
I hardly consider the annual Treehouse of Horrors episode special. When it's the season premiere I'll write about it, but when it's just another episode I don't consider it entry-worthy.
I'll be the first to admit the episode was disappointing. It didn't seem particularly smart or funny, two dependable trademarks of "The Simpsons". At this point I feel it's necessary to point out that I don't watch with blinders on. I totally understand why people say it's half the show it used to be, because it is. Still, I watch religiously and I don't intend to stop. For more on why I still watch, read Why I Still Watch.
I actually missed "Family Guy" on Sunday because after "Curb Your Enthusiasm" at 20:30 I flipped over to "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" to watch their two hour movie with both teams of detectives. It's good to see my old buddy Mike Logan again...
