Yawn.............

The episode starts out with the Simpsons going to a boring amusement park, until getting abducted by aliens. It starts out watchable, but then it gets really boring. I got so bored I started doing something else halfway through. After the Simpsons landed on the alien planet, I just stopped caring. I can't believe how overrated this episode is! Sure it shows Kang and Kudos outside of a Halloween episode, but boy it was wasted. But one unusual thing about this episode is that the town people are completely absent, other than cameos during the credits. I don't think that this episode is as bad as some other atrocities like Miracle on evergreen terrace, but it still is very bad. I think that the Simpsons should just make another movie, and that's it because I think that Homer, Bart, Marge, and Lisa (excluding Maggie) have been all used up by now.
