What is going on reallyWe start with a McBain movie that is a clear piss take of Arnie with Grampa Simpson and Jasper both hating the movie and complaining only to have a heart attack.

This leads to Grampa Simpson confessing to having an affair before he got married to Homer’s mother leading to Homer going on a mission to find his lost half-brother.

After finding Herbert the family head to Detroit to meet only to learn that Herbert owns his own motor company richer beyond anything Homer can believe.

Danny DeVito as Herb Powell

Final ThoughtsThis is an episode that deals with the idea that we might not know all our family. We also get a few looks at the modern cars of today with Homer’s design sequences showing just how the show always seemed to know the future. But overall this episode did lack that final punch I felt it could have had.

Rating 3/5
