Well, I guess it was a bit much to ask for three great episodes in a row. This episode was not bad per se, just a little "meh". The plot was quite weak and Artie was not as funny as he usually was. On the other hand, there was some excellent subtle humour and visual gags, and the couch gag was the best I've seen for a long time.
The first act, as usual, had nothing to do with the rest of the episode, but was probably the funniest. The two Matrix posters, and some of the movie titles were great (The Fashion Of Christ, Eating Nemo and Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Board of Education spring to mind).
I thought it was pretty strange that Artie Ziff happened to be living in the Simpsons' attic, but the rest of the plot progressed okay. There were some good one-liners (such as "Morman? But I'm from Earth!" from Homer) and the resolution of the episode wasn't too bad, although the actual ending (Ziff spraying water on everyone) was a bit stupid.
This is one of the worst episode ever.The matrix and the last scene in where arties in jail was the funniest it ever got.
pretty good episode ... a very funny part when arty Ziff was reading a book to lisa...
Ziff: and thats the way she was.. ( somthing like that i dont kno )
Lisa: thx for reading that to me
Ziff: doesn't your father every read to you?
Lisa: he did once, then got confused and thought it was real .... he's still looking for the Chocolate factor.. it consums him(takes a sip of pretend tea and shakes her head in despresion )
very good lol
A classic episode . Who would have ever thougt those Genius's who make the Simpsons would have found a way to bring back that snotty(yet lovable) character from the second season and still made "Rumba 69" sad!!!!!!
