Still at the top of its game
19 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There's always a lot of talk where 'The Simpsons' is concerned about when the peak years were, and the decline in quality after that, but for me this 11th series has started bang on form, with a very good run of episodes.

I love all the 'Zorro' inspired stuff here, and the way the story plays out. There are some wonderful lines along the way.

Again, it's Homer as the focus, but I don't mind that.

Forget all the talk of 'peaks' and 'declines' and just enjoy a fab episode.
