The Twenty-Fourth Season Starts Off Strong,
25 March 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Moonshine River is a great Simpsons episode with a lot of very funny scenes,most of them coming from Homer in this episode and also a lot of laughs from Cletus's scenes.The Simpsons twenty-fourth season starts off strong,I really enjoyed the return of Bart's old girlfriends,even if they were only brief cameos,Gina (Sarah Michelle Gellar) from Wandering Juvie,Jenny (Anne Hathaway) from The Good,The Sad And The Drugly,Darcy (Natalie Portman) from Little Big Girl all make brief cameos,and Mary Spuckler (Zooey Deschanel) from Apocalypse Cow has a main role in this episode.The episode is lots of fun and laughs from start to finish and starts off the new season very well.

Bart looks back over all his past girlfriends to find out how he failed with all of them,the only successful relationship he had was with Mary Spuckler,so he decides to go to New York and win her back.
