Fantastic Episode!
1 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eleventh episode in the second season of the Simpsons is possibly the greatest episode to date and definitely the most emotional. I won't lie when I say I may have shed a tear or two. This episode explores the question, what would you do if you had 24 hours left to live. Not a thrilling thought, but one that is worth answering.

In this episode, "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish," the Simpsons decide to eat at this sushi restaurant and Homer decides to eat the often-fatal blowfish dish. After being told he has 24 hours to live, Homer decides to live his life to the fullest.

Overall, this is such a tender episode. There are some rather funny moments, but the episode is mostly sad because of the premise. But it's a wonderful episode that features great voice-work from Larry King. Morally, this is probably one of the best early Simpsons episodes. I rate this episode 9/10.
