This segment appeals to the same people who love The Big Bang Theory.
The segment is seriously flawed. They are only able to get their jokes in by Homer unnaturally narrating his thoughts and motives to the audience, and then Homer becomes bizarrely self-aware for the purpose of one flat joke while talking to the Texan, then promptly follows the next order with no fuss for some reason. Then more of Homer telling us everything he is thinking, couldn't they have found a better way to get these jokes in? Then what is he point of Homer being shown his tax return. That is so brutally forced. The most redeeming part, even though it is a stupid topical joke with no timeless quality to it like the rest, is Homer landing on the Suicide nets because they just showed it happening, instead of trying to reveal it with some stupid dialogue. It would have been better if the truck didn't say suicide nets either.
Classic Simpsons had so many references I didn't get, but the whole thing stood up on its own because it was funny and well-written regardless (aka, I have never seen Cape Fear the movie and have no idea who Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown is). This segment is only remotely humorous if you get the references, but even still is totally stale and unintelligent. But this is not nearly enough, it still sucks. This segment appeals to the same people who love The Big Bang Theory.
