The animation looked a little more awkward than in most weeks for some reason. It's as if the characters were drawn in a slightly more abstract way, similar to Groening's 'Life in Hell' comic strip. There was a bit more distortion in their features than we're used to seeing. 'The Simpsons' has become a very crisp production.
The main plot this week involved Homer ditching Marge at a wedding because a fortune cookie told him he would be lucky that day. From there, things went into the realm of the absurd at a breakneck pace.

The lengths he went to in order to hide the fact that he'd just won a million dollar lottery seemed a bit crazy. And while I know it's a cartoon, there's no way he burned through however much money he did get -- after Uncle Sam got his check to start a committee to figure out what to do with the money -- in such a short span of time.
