YMMV: The Simpsons S 8 E 2 You Only Move Twice

  • Acceptable Targets: Special education.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: At the time of this episode the Denver Broncos were one of the worst teams in the NFL (hence Homer's disappointment in becoming their owner). By the end of the season, they would tie with the Green Bay Packers for having the best regular season record at 13-3, and would go on to win the Super Bowl the following year, and again at Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999, which Homer went to in Season 10's "Sunday, Cruddy Sunday". And it became hilarious again after their disappointing loss of 43-8 at Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014, with the scene being memetically mutated once again.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Hank Scorpio, as mentioned in the main YMMV section, is polite for a super-villain and is one of the few people who are genuinely friendly and helpful towards Homer. What's worse is that he wasn't used as the villain in The Simpsons Movie because the writers were afraid of turning him into an all-out villain (when really, they could have left him the way he was and just ramped up his plots for world domination).
