    The City of New York vs Homer Simpson being banned is almost as bad as youtube banning any video or history video about the second world war because it had a swastika somewhere in it.

    I saw that episode in 2018, Twilight Zone that is, and found nothing wrong with the episode. People you have to remember it was a different era and things were different and in World War two there were spies, not particularly the background of the Takamori character but there were spies. Anyways, the war veteran in that episode was portrayed by real life war hero of World War two Neville Brand. Thank you for your service Mr. Brand and may you R.I.P. Sir.

    There are plenty of family Guy episodes that have been way more offensive. Wish upon a Wienstien is nothing compared to some of these newer episodes that just openly and blatantly racially insult people. At least when family Guy used to make racist jokes they were more subtle and clever. Family Guy sucks my bolas

    Okay im seeing alot of people argue about the simpsons episode and just so people know i dont live or had family involved in the accident so i cant understand the pain but with that said its rant time
    To the peoole who are calling 9/11 funny and calling the people "snowflakes" thats just mean and there is no need to do that, but i do agree with what some of you have said even if you went about it all wrong, i do believe that we shouldnt just forget what happened and sadly its always going to be a talking topic (not a joking topic) and as time goes on this will just be talked about more and more as the tragedy it is, but to the more touchy people, no this whole episode shouldnt be banned for featuring the twin towers, its a histirorical landmark and regardless of how we look at it the simpsons never had these towers here as a bad thing, they featured it because they knew it was a fun location to place homer, just think about all the people who seen the episode and got so happy to see the location, before and after the accident, imagine seeing that episode now, it would bring happiness to so many people as it shows the twin towers in a great, non offensive and silly way rather than just showing doom and gloom of it and even if it is hard for many people to still see, the episode is many years old now and it would be fairly easy to avoid seeing the episode by reading the guide of the episode before viewing, its not like you didnt see it coming you can find out what episode it is fairly easily and avoid it so you dont get hurt while others can still enjoy the episode

    It's a flipping shame Beauty and the Beach (Pokemon) was banned for some stupid reason (images of girls in bikinis or something like that, or a scene with a lost bikini top?) because it's a pretty good episode that shows Pokemon interacting with one another with no humans around.
