Similar to New Tricks and Cold Case
30 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode had everything; Humour, a hypnotist, an unsolved murder, laughs, a crank call and a dead body. Honestly, this episode is similar to New Tricks and Cold Case with the unsolved case and if Homer needed help from an unsolved case cop, he should have called either Detective Lilly Rush or Detective Superintandant Sandra Pullman instead of Police Chief Wiggum. The body was Smithers's dad who vanished 25 years previously and it was still a good episode all the way.

All in all, this episode is so New Tricks, Cold Case Squad, Cold Squad and Waking the Dead meets the Simpsons and this is a really good episode so if you you don't like it, that's your problem, not mine so there.
