    One of the more unique episodes of 'The Simpsons' ever, along with being an animation masterpiece. As for the actual quality of the episode, I thought it was generally funny and a good exploration of Homer's character. The Marge soulmate part was yeah, sort of predictable, but also sweet.

    A-/A

    I liked this episode. Although i'm usually the one to complain about the unrealistic nature of later episodes and i prefer season one and two style plots... I agree with the above mention of it being an 'animation masterpiece', or at any rate a memorable and unique and well done little episode certainly one that sticks in the mind. 5/5

    well it was obvious that Marge would turn out to be his soulmate but otherwise that didn't spoil what I thought was an enjoyable and very original episode. 4/5

    it's funny that I'm watching this episode right now lol

    but in all honesty it could've been better, I personally don't find it that funny, although I agree it was a good exploration of Homer's character

    5/5, although it shares the honor of being my favorite episode with "Cape Fear" for introducing me to Gilbert and Sullivan. (In no particular order) 1. good character study 2. interesting animation in the 2nd act 3. some very funny moments (the golf course, for example) 4. Johnny "the Man in Black" Cash.
