YMMV / The Simpsons S 11 E 2 Brothers Little Helper

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment/Harsher in Hindsight: The revelation that Major League Baseball was spying on Springfielders has become less amusing after the full revelation of the NSA's spying on Americans in 2013. Likewise Major League Baseball and Mark Mc Guire covering up a scandal became less funny after the revelations that him and other famous players like Barry Bonds were involved in Steroid abuse.
  • Values Resonance: The episode actually has some relevance today, as there is still concern over giving kids medication for attention deficit disorder (and issue of how people today rely on prescription pills [particularly the kind for mood and mental disorders], despite their adverse side effects).
