Different in a good way.
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first ten seasons of The Simpsons are classics. Then it declined. When 'The Simpsons Movie' showed up we thought that maybe, just maybe, they'd sorted things out. Alas, it was not to be. Season 19 is mainly a mess, but this is a little ray of light in the darkness.

The opening is a clever spoof of Ice Age with a squirrel trying to get an acorn and failing miserable when Groundskeeper Willie takes it from him. The episode doesn't do the usual Zombie Simpsons thing of dragging out the joke for too long and what we get with the joke is just right. One joke in and we're off to a good start.

The episode's plot and namesake are reminiscent of the excellent movie 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind' but it's not a direct copy which is good. It sees Homer wake up to find his family gone and he has only a few scattered memories of the previous night. It appears he might have actually hurt Marge! Homer knows he'd have never done that... Or would he, if he had a really good reason? It looks like she might be having an affair of some sort and he sets out to see if he can work out what happened.

It manages to resolve all these various questions in a satisfying manner and even finds a way to fit in a clip from every single episode from the show's run so far without feeling like a gimmick which is certainly an achievement. My only issue is the scene with Patty & Selma pushing him off a bridge: Why would they go to that extent? It's no secret that they dislike him but this is too far. Still, I can chose to overlook such an issue for the sake of the episode due to how it's otherwise very good.

Season 19 won't do many good episodes but it does contain a few of them every so often and this is one such example. 8/10
