I am wondering what people thought of this episode? For some reason it felt like Fanfiction... not sure how else to explain it. There was some good casting like Barney of Bacchus (great line "You’ve changed, What happened to the old Zeus who used to turn into a cow and pick up chicks?"  wink Segments
1. Odyssey of Homer: My favorite segment, I am a mythology fan and they were not too far off for certain parts.
2. Joan of Arc: Not that good, surprisingly violent, God was kind of funny though
3. Hamlet, Ok, some of the casting was off, Lisa shouldn’t have been Ophelia, but she already was missing in the first segment and it would seem strange to have her missing for 2/3rds the episode. Ralph as Laertes was funny and unexpected.

I think the funny thing is this episode was more violent then the last bunch of Halloween episodes.

Er Tales feal like an idiot.

Disco Stu... was talking to YOU!

Glad I have the episode saved on my computer! I think it was a great episode (being a mythology and history fan myself). But a little too violent, perhaps?

I like that Disco Stu bit and Moe's comment on "who decided to give every lunatic an island?" Homer's Oddysey was the most accurate of all the three acts.

Joan of Arc was OK, I liked it when Wiggum said "Uh, oh, there's my supervisor" and went off to fight. The way God was portryed was cool.

Hamlet was a bit off, but it did emphasize the amount of people killed in that play  smile

This was a lot better than the Simpsons Tall Tales, IMO.

As a lit major, I loved this ep. They stayed surprisingly true to the source material.

Saw Rosencarl and Gildenlenny coming, though.

Man, all that killing in the Hamlet segment was crazy, and Fox wouldn't let Futurama air "A Tale of Two Santas" until 9/8c with a Parental Discretion Warning.  roll eyes  I liked it quite a bit, and knowing the original stories made it interesting to see how it would play out. It's good to see Disco Stu come back, it's been a while since we've seen him.
