Thumbs up Simpsons "Flaming Moe" 1/16/11

Anyone see this one tonight? Thoughts?

I haven't been watching The Simpsons since the episode after the HD switch. I felt Seasons 17-21 were quite poor, but this episode tonight seemed to have lots of quality. Many laughs, hidden jokes, etc..

It's like classic Simpsons writing with High Definition presentation.

Especially nice was that the simpsons went back to it's roots by not dragging half-a-dozen guest stars in this episode. (There were guest voices, but they didn't conflict with the plot).

Also good to see some Smither's centric stuff again.

So this is a new episode with nearly the same title as the episode from season 3?

Yeah, I was checking the cable guide and saw the title "Flaming Moe" and thought...repeat.

So, Flaming Moe's was never in HD, But Flaming Moe was.

The title was interesting, because it actually had to do with Moe opening a gay bar. (I thought the famous drink made a comeback)

Come to think of it, had we had the internet circa-1992, I probably would have thought Flaming Moe's (Season 3) was about opening a gay bar.

Actually I still have this ep. taped on VHS from original airing. I wish they would remaster the 3rd and 4th seasons for HD, the best era of Simpsons writing IMHO.

Wow, I was actually intrigued by the idea of the show somehow upconverting the season three classic into HD...

Oh i thought you meant the season 3 classic episode so voted excellent then realised it was a new episode lol. Ohwell it probably was and some of the newer episodes i've seen recently have been way funnier than it's been in a long time.
