A Very Sarcastic Episode,
6 January 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Helter Shelter is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes.A lot of people don't like this episode,and while I will admit it's a weaker one in the fourteenth season,I still found it very fun,it was written purposely to be ridiculous, which I don't think a lot of people realised,as if a house getting eaten by termites and a family have to live in a reality television series is a concept many shows have done before,I don't see how people couldn't see that it was suppose to be goofy humour,I liked it and it was fun to see the writers try something different.Its certainly not a highlight of the fourteenth season,but Helter Shelter is still a very fun Simpsons episode that I certainly enjoyed.

After the Simpsons home gets eaten by termites,they are forced to join a reality show where they must live like a family from the 1800's.

If you have any recommendations on films/TV series I should watch or review,or any questions to ask me,just tweet me @DillonTheHarris
