Re: Yeah I sorta know what you mean
As far as simply being too wacky and OTT without being rooted in any consistent rules, that is the issue with You Only Move Twice. Homer's Enemy is a different case though, it's not too implausible to have been a season 4 episode but the better seasons never would have done something that cruel. It's getting into the "jerkass Homer" era. If all you care about is how funny it is then it works, but the classic seasons had heart.
