Touching stuff!
28 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons have gone back to their roots for the 21st season. It's great to see characters being developed again as more than just comedy roles, and people can now connect and feel for the characters (not just the primary cast).

"Once Upon a Time in Springfield" brings depth to Krusty the Clown, as he becomes more than just a self loathing, depressed children's entertainer, and the character opposite him in this episode "Princess Penelope" is a likable addition to the secondary characters.

While this particular episode didn't have much in terms of comedy, it was still one of the most memorable episodes of the season.

7/10
