Episode reviews: Treehouse of Horror XII

All the submitted reviews for Treehouse of Horror XII (CABF19). All ratings are out of 5. The average rating for this episode is 3.95.

Curse of the Dummy - I thought this story was decent. All the family being cursed provided some good opportunities for jokes. I especially liked Marge getting hairy. 3/5

House of Whacks - This story was great! The house had some great features, and using Pierce Brosnan for the voice topped it off. I can't think of anything specifically that I liked, but generally it was a good story. 5/5

Wiz Kids - Another decent story. This wasn't as funny as the first two stories, but it did have some funny moments. The best was probably Smithers eating Mr. Burns after he died. Bart & Lisa were friends again at the end which is always nice to see. 4/5

Overall, this was a good Treehouse of Horror episode, probably the best for a couple of years.

Now, THIS is the best Halloween special Ever!
Hex and the City: Truly funny!
House of Whacks: You have to watch it a few times to get it, but still good.
Wiz Kids: Pure Gold! The entire scene with the prince is one of the funniest moments in Simpson history!

A good THOH.

Send In The Clones
I loved this story, it was definitely the best THOH segment in recent years. The progression of the story was really good, as was the appearance of the early Homer and Peter from Family Guy. The simultaneous stranglings and d'ohs were probably my favorite part, just because it made me roar with laughter! 5/5

The Fright to Creep and Scare Harms
What a let down. After such a great segment comes this, partly recycled, disjointed, unfunny, nonsensical storyline. For me it was too similar to The Monkey's Paw story from THOH II. The story made no sense whatsoever, and had no funny moments. 1/5

The Island of Dr. Hibbert
This was weird, but a funny kind of weird. No particular jokes stand out in my mind, but I just remember laughing at all the different animals, like 'Disco Shrew'. 2/5

It's really difficult to judge this episode overall, because there was such a contrast between the stories. The first segment was by far the best, the last was okay, but the middle one was poor.
