  • THE BEST EPISODE IN MANY YEARS!

    I am surprised to see that practically everyone is giving this episode bad reviews (with a 6.4 rating here on TV.com, for example), which I don't get. I prefer episodes that are meaningful over those that just try to be funny, and I believe "The Simpsons", altogether, isn't really that much of a funny show, at least not anymore, along with every other comedy on FOX. Which is why this episode stood out among the others: it has a nicely built storyline, some depth, an interesting guest character (finally!), some nice jokes and quotes, and great references to "Heavenly Creatures" and "Bridge to Therabitia". It's really a remarkable episode, for me, anyway. I guess it's one of them "love-em-or-hate-em" shows, there's no middle term whatsoever.
