'The Simpsons' Season 25 premiere: 'Homerland' tackles terrorism, sort of

The historic 25th season of "The Simpsons" has arrived. The season premiere takes on "Homeland" as Homer comes home from a work convention a changed man. He's polite, he's eating healthy, he's not strangling Bart. There's only one possible answer, he was kidnapped and brainwashed by terrorists before coming home.Of course, Lisa is the only one who sees something wrong, so she calls the FBI. That's where Kristen Wiig comes in as a guest voice, playing a bipolar FBI agent, in the same vein as Claire Danes' CIA operative Carrie Mathison on "Homeland," but way more over the top.In the end it was all a crazy mix up, of course. Homer actually befriended a bunch of hippies who taught him a better lifestyle. Oh, those hippies. They also enlightened him about the damage a nuclear power plant could cause, which leads to him finding a peaceful way of closing Springfield's, even if it won't last....
