Decent episode
13 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I originally heard that the manatees storyline was going to be used in 'The Simpsons Movie', i'm so glad that it didn't. The storyline fit into a 20 minute episode well, but it wouldn't have been movie material.

The episode is one of the best from season 17 and contained some hilarious scenes, such as Professor Pigskin, and the 'You're needed at home!' scene. And Alec Baldwin (once again!) appeared in the show, which I was pleased by.

Overall, it was a decent episode, not great, but we don't tend to find many 'classic' episodes in a later season.

9/10
