One of The Season's Best
17 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Much like the statement of "The End" on the back of the boat followed by a question mark at the end of the episode, if this really was the end I would be happy instead of mad.

If you are like me, then you might have noticed the decline of the show over the past few years. Then came the Simpson's Movie and the Simpsons were back, or as back as they possibly could be. But then the 19th season started and even though it started strong, that idea was quickly swept away. But the season has taken a slight turn for the better, Episode 8 gave us Sideshow Bob and his family, which is always pleasant, then came this episode. Episode 9 is the closest they have come to bringing back the charm of their former selves in a very long time. Yes the plot is crazy, but they wrap is all up. Everything gets explained in its own crazy way. But there is also the emotion factor which is back. There have been many episodes where Homer might loose Marge (tons), but none quite like this. The plot itself involves Homer drinking a forgetful shot, possible domestic violence, Flanders, suicide, realization of faults and clips from every previous episode to show what Homer has gone through in his life (yes, they show something from all of them). Frankly I would have liked to see Homer travel back to an episode from the first season to seek help, that would have made the episode timeless, but what they did I can also settle for. The whole time lapse seen of Homer's life flashing before his eyes was damn good as well.

If the rating system went to 9.5 I would give it that score (only seasons 3-7 are 10s in my book) but 9 for what I've seen of late is amazing. Lets hope this is a welcome change for the new year, but deep inside I fear it will not.
