Possibly one of my favourite Simpsons episodes of all-time.
8 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I never thought this would happen, but a season 19 episode has become one of my favourites. I am not one of those fans of the show that moan about how much The Simpsons has gone downhill, it has declined over the years, but I still love it just as much as ever, and it still remains my favourite show.

'Midnight Towboy', however, took me by surprise. The episode just worked so well. The main plot is basically, Homer is hired by Louie (voiced by Matt Dillon) who has an easy career in towing cars, but warns Homer to stay off his turf. Homer becomes power-mad and starts to tow people's cars for ridiculous reasons. The town's people become angry and set up a trap for Homer. I'll leave it there, I won't spoil it for you.

The episode is funny, the storyline is entertaining and so is the subplot, with Marge trying to help Maggie to become more independent. Great episode.

10/10!
