The Simposns In Other Shows

I loved this episode, the send up of the Simpsons in different spin-offs was really well done. Chief Wiggum in a Magnum PI style episode was very funny, the Simpsons doing the Variety Show (a bit like the Brady Bunch) and Grampa in a Love Machine helping Moe, almost a remake of My Mother The Car.

This is one story that had the potential to be re-hashed in later Seasons in different situations. Great episode, really enjoyed it, in my top 20 list.
