This was a really great episode. It deals with documentary director Declan Desmond making a movie about some elementary school kids every 8 years, now on year 32. We get to see in to Chief Wiggum, Professor Frink, Homer, Lenny (sort of) and Marge's life. Not only is the concept good, but it is executed so perfectly. I laughed out loud several times, probably the most in the last 5 years, and even though it was a pretty silly episode, it still managed to have a really sweet ending. I think that this will be up for the next Emmy's and it probably will win. Best episode since season 9.

My rating: **** out of ****. TV PG D
