I thought this one was pretty good, but not as good as I was expecting. I'd heard a lot of great things about this episode.

Definitely an episode worth watching, though. It was good to see and episode involving Santa's Little Helper again, there have been very few. Dog of Death was a great episode, but I didn't like The Canine Mutiny. This one was in between.

The opening was excellent - Bart and his friends behaving childish... because they are children. I think the writers forget this sometimes. Although I didn't get why Nelson and Database were there, seem like opposites to me. Would have been good to see Lewis or Richard instead (Bart's friends from Season 1 and 2).

The grand opening of the new treehouse was funny, as was Homer jumping out thinking there was a net. The main story seemed to drag on a bit, though. It was good, but I felt there were not enough jokes, it was all "establishing the storyline".

Good episode.
