    The City Of New York vs. Homer Simpson

    What is the deal with this episode of The Simpsons, is it actually banned from being shown again, or are they waiting for a better time to show it?

    I downloaded it at the weekend because I have not seen it since around 2000. There is not actually anything that could be taken as offensive, if anything it makes you remember the twin towers.

    Will it be shown again?

    I don't think it's banned, just not being aired. I'm sure it will show up on DVD soon. It's one of the funniest episodes ever, and I think sometime soon people will again be ready to laugh about choosing crabjuice over Mountain Dew.
    That's my jacket!

    I forgot to mention it is a very funny episode. This episode was the climax, it was downhill from then on.

    This is one of my least-favorite episodes and starts the downward slide the show is currently in, but they have shown it in syndication here a couple times in the last year or so.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I loved this episode! The image of watching Homer driving with the wheel boot on still makes me laugh. Great stuff.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    I love this episode. There is something rather delightful (though saddening) when the guys in the towers yell back and forth at each other.

    "They put all the jerks in tower 1!"

    It was funny at the time (still is to me) and it makes me remember when the towers were still there, which i can't help but feel somewhat proud and nostalgic about something that was so grand and once stood in NYC. I do remember when this was aired the day OF the terrorist attacks on my local fox station. They cut in during the middle and there was darkness for about 10 min, when it popped on, it was the Stonecutters episode and it was right at the part where they paint the building sky blue and that chopper hits it. I think somebody realized this error, cause once the chopper hit, about 5 seconds later, it cut to commercial and came back w/ another episode.

    It's got to be a touchy subject. I mean Homer is actually in both Towers. Still, other shows (pre-9/11) that have images of the TT don't get banned. It's a delicate topic and I'm sure it will be on sooner than later. They removed the poison envelope episode of Seinfeld for a while too, but that was on not to long ago. Give it time and they'll show it.
    If you want to find it you have to shop.

    That was one of my favorite episodes too. I remember when I went to NYC in 2000 and I had that song in my head the whole time (the one from homer's flashback). I've always loved architecture so I for sure went to see the towers but for some reason I was even more fascinated by the fact that I was in a spot that was on the simpsons. I know in NYC, just about everywhere you go was in SOME movie or TV show but this was HOMER FREAKIN SIMPSON!! I've seen it a few times since the day of the attacks (I got my TIE Interceptor and was taking it out of the packege when they came on TV) I know it was a terible thing that happened but, as has been said before, that episode has nothing to do with it so banning it would be retarded. BTW, how could the ban "flushing meadows................"
