Best episode in ages
18 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is easily the best episode in a very, very long time. It's not forced, it's not overplayed, it's not unfunny, it's just the opposite of those things. During great scenes, I couldn't help thinking to myself, "Okay, when are they going to ruin this perfectly good scene with loads of potential, with a dumb Homer joke?!" and that joke never came. This is a serious episode, with a really innocent, sweet ending. See, they have the potential to do so much with the show, yet they always waste that potential by trying to appeal to their new target audience: Children.

I'd give this an '8', but considering how much better this episode is to the rest of this season, and season 18 included, I will up it to a '9' because this episode really impressed me.
