With special guest Tom Waits! I predict he'll be the best part.
Homer Goes to Prep School...that is, a school where you learn to prepare for the apocalypse.
ETA: "Teacher did not get fat over the holidays." Ha, loved Sideshow Mel's "Laser Hair Bone Removal and the couch gag of the family as various awards...which are then crushed.
"What would you do if you got my ear in the mail?"
"I dunno, feed it to the dog?"
Homer's spirit animal was so randomly hilarious.
"Smell some bread!"
Tom Waits as a doomsday prepper was pretty great casting. Of Herman would be a prepper, but not kinda shocked that Superintendent Chalmers, Lindsey Naegle and Pyro would be preppers, too. It's gonna be tough to see Chalmers the same way again. He...drinks his own urine?
Heh, a Kathy Griffin special was in the pile of apocalypse movies.
So...an apocalyptic scenario actually hit Springfield. And it was all Homer's fault because he was too busy watching youtube videos of a crazy prepper. But I liked that Springfield went back to normal from the EMP BECAUSE all of the crazy people left. I thought the writers wasted an opportunity that the prepper's alarm wasn't triggered by one of the kid's bracelets from earlier in the episode.
All in all, better than I thought it was gonna be! Which is high praise from me these days.
