Episode Summary

EDIT

When a fire at the retirement home forces Grampa to move back in with the Simpsons, Homer throws out his back on moving day. While "resting" at home, he gets hooked on the super-addictive tablet game, "Villageville." And, in his distraction, he loses the family dog, Santa's Little Helper. Everyone is angry with Homer for not seeming to care about the missing dog, but Grampa tells them the story of Homer's long-lost childhood pup, Bongo.

  • A sad episode

    10
    I can be kind of a softie for sad dog stories, and this episode got me about as deeply as the Futurama episode about Fry and Seymour :(
  • I Think The Simpsons Sadly Needs To Be Cancelled

    5.5
    After watching Season 24, i have finally gave up watching the new episodes as they are just boring, unfunny and unmemorable. This episode proved it!
  • After Grandpa is forced to move in with the Simpsons he reveals a sad story from Homer's past.

    7.0
    "To Cur with Love" is just a mediocre episode. There were some laughs in it. Mostly from the flashback sequences, but overall it is a forgettable episode. The scene where Homer drank a whole bottle of window cleaner without any side effects at all is what killed this episode for me. There are plenty of episodes which stretch credibility, but that was just plain rediculous. The year did not end on a good note for "The Simpsons". Hopefully future episodes will make up for this misfire.moreless
