Intro: The Simspons face the "Furious Four": Sideshow Bob, one of the aliens (he doesn't speak, so I have no idea if it's Kang or Kodos), the ghost of Frank Grimes, and the leprechaun from Treehouse XII. There's also a reference to the fact that this is The Simpsons' 600th episode. It was okay, I guess.

Planet of the Couches: The opening couch gag is a spoof of Planet of the Apes. Not bad.

Dry Hard: Mainly a spoof of The Hunger Games with Lisa as Katniss, but Springfield is in a massive drought, and only Mr. Burns has water. (So it also reminded me of Tank Girl, although apparently that aspect was actually a spoof of Mad Max: Fury Road (which I want to see). Anyway, I guess the segment was okay, but I already forgot most of the details, a few days after watching it. One thing I did like, though, was a sight gag, with Homer's character drinking Logan's Rum (a play on the movie "Logan's Run"... which I also think I haven't seen yet).

BFF/RIP: Lisa's imaginary friend Rachel (Sarah Silverman) kills anyone Lisa gets close to. That was kind of fun. Also, at one point in this segment, Homer was again drinking Logan's Rum, which allowed him to see Rachel.

Moefinger: In a spoof of The Kingsman: Secret Service, Moe and his patrons turn out to be agents of a James Bond-style spy organization. And Moe recruits Bart to join. And that's all I want to say about that, but it was okay.
