Best Episode Of The Season
15 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Love This Episode. It Was Amazingly Original and Funny. I Just Watched It. I Love How They had added It As A Bonus Feature On The New Season 16 DVD Set. Seeing As Season 23 Prob Wont Be Released to DVD For Another 7 Years. lol. I Think They Need to Start Releasing The Seasons Faster. A Season A Year Is Not enough For Us Fans. As Far As The Episode It Was Another Future Episode and a Very Original One At That. Prob The Best One Ever. Very Funny and Very Cool Concepts. The Simpsons Has Always Been My Favorite Show Since It Fist Came Out. I Remember Watching It Back When I Was in Middle School and I Am 38 Now. its Great That Its Still On T.V. I Hope It Stays On For Another 20 Years. Simpsons Fan 4-Life, James Burns
