A Retread of the Past!

This is the eighteenth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and believe it or not, I found it to be quite enjoyable. The episode mainly relies upon usage of flashbacks from previous seasons, but that brought back memories and it showed the improvement of the show in storytelling and animation. I loved the cultural references, mainly to Barney resembling the chief antics in 1975's One who Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest.

In this episode, "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show," after Homer played practical jokes on Bart because of April Fools Day, Bart vows revenge. But it goes a little too far when Homer is seriously injured, thus each family member giving their favorite memories of Homer.

Overall, this is a great episode. About as great one could hope for in a clip episode. The episode is funny and had some good lines from Grampa and Dr. Hibbert. The episode is a little dramatic though and it gets pretty sad when the family express their love to an unconscious Homer. Another solid episode in the books. I rate this episode 9/10.
