Everyone has their thoughts on The legendary Simpsons. Some people say it stopped being good years ago. Others think it still is. Whatever the case is, websites, magazine articles, and other media have been made criticizing the alleged decay, so there definitely is a problem. This is a fic that offers a deconstruction of the modern show. Let's see how it does.
Sadly, the plot isn't really that thick. An original character who represents the author appears out of nowhere, like in Zombie Simpsons, and the story is told through people flat out pointing out the problems with the show, like Zombie Simpsons often has Comic Book Guy do. There's a lot more creative ways to do this, keeping in mind the flaws of the later episodes. Have a character talk privately believing they're out of earshot, then have the character they think isn't there hear everything! Have the bar patrons boo a prank call, or have Moe instantly spot it! Exposit on exposition! Have a musical montage with lyrics talking about montages! Have a no-name citizen treat Homer like the numerous celebrity guest stars on the show! The possibilities are endless! That said, there is a cause in here, so I'll give it a 3/5 for effort.
This is something I can't judge. If the writer is familiar with Dead Homer Society, then this can easily be unoriginal. Otherwise, in criticism, a lot of things are going to converge. Since I have no opinion, I will give this a 3/5.
To be perfectly honest, this felt a little bit more like an essay than a fanfic. A story would present things in the context of the episode. Disguise it as a Homer Gets A New Job episode, a Preachy Lisa Episode, a Marge and Homer Relationship Episode, and a Bart Gets a Girlfriend episode all at once, then expose the flaws in each of those scenarios through brutal satire of the show's formulas. As of right now, this is just an essay. But, it is a well-done one, so I'll be merciful and give this a 2/5, which is the rough equivalent of a D, which is a passing grade.
I might use this one to illustrate problems. By clearly outlining the problems in this show, as an essay it succeeds. In fact, if this were an essay, the format of having things done by the characters would be very creative. 4/5.
It's a good essay, but not a very good fanfic. A fanfic needs at least some kind of story, while this is overlaying the problems flat out. As an essay, 4/5. As a fanfic, 2/5. So I'll compromise and give the overall product a 3/5.
And I strongly encourage you to check out Dead Homer Society. You'll be among friends and even learn about writing in the process.
