  • The Simpsons is still great!!!

    Having the full title sequence and a long couch gag is usually a good sign. This usually means that the episode itself is shorter. And instead of seeing that as a bad thing, I see it as a good thing. If an episode is shorter, it usually means that the story isn't all over the place. Which has been a problem for The Simpsons in recent years. But the story in this episode was not all over the place. On the contrary, it was a very simple yet heartfelt and funny episode. Having these two qualities in one episode is something creators of animated shows other than Matt Groening have never been able to accomplish. This is what makes The Simpsons excell above shows such as Family Guy and American Dad. The premise of "Homers Paternity Coot" is Homer desovering that Abe might not be his real father. And although this is not as good as episodes like "Grandpa vs. Sexual Inedequacy", I am glad that another Abe/Homer centric episode was created. If you liked episodes such as the aforementioned one you will also enjoy this episode.
