"You Only Move Twice" is the second episode of the eighth season of The Simpsons, an American animated sitcom. Directed by Mike B. Anderson and written by John Swartzwelder based on a story idea by Greg Daniels, it first aired on the Fox network on November 3, 1996. In the episode, the family moves to a new town, Cypress Creek, and Homer's friendly new boss turns out to be a supervillain. Bart, Lisa, and Marge each have secondary storylines. The episode title is a reference to the James Bond film You Only Live Twice, and many elements of the episode parody the Bond films, with a character modeled after Bond making a brief appearance. Albert Brooks (pictured), in his fourth appearance on The Simpsons, guest stars as the voice of Homer's new boss. The episode was very well received by critics. IGN named "You Only Move Twice" the best episode of the eighth season and Albert Brooks as one of the best guest stars in the history of the show. (Full article...)
