Not a Great Season Opener,but a Fun Episode,
17 June 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

He Loves to Fly and He D'ohs is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and several very funny scenes.I certainly don't think it should have been the first episode of the nineteenth season,because you normally expect them to be strong episodes but this one was average and the storyline wasn't anything unique.There are certainly some hit and miss jokes but any funny parts that did work out did so very well,Homer learning how to live his life with positive energy and Lionel Richie's cameo being some of the episodes highlights.I really loved the episodes opening,probably my favourite of the different Simpsons openings,as we see the town after the events of the Simpsons movie,filled with several references to the film.He Loves to Fly and He D'ohs is a fun and enjoyable Simpsons episode.

After having an amazing time in Chicago,Homer is depressed with his boring lifestyle,so Marge hires a life manager for him to feel positive energy.
