Clever And Different Episode,
10 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Gone Abie Gone is a great Simpsons episode with a surprisingly clever story line and plenty of funny scenes.I didn't think the episode seemed promising,from what I heard about it,I thought it was gonna be an episode like Thats 90s Show that would contradict the history of the show,but it didn't affect anything because its from a period that hadn't been mentioned before.I thought it was a clever addition to Grampa's history,there was also an enjoyable side story,and I also really enjoyed the Wacky Races couch gag that took me back to my childhood when I use to love the series.

When Grampa goes missing,Homer and Marge learn some shocking news about his past.Meanwhile,when Homer puts Lisa's college fund on an online poker site,Lisa becomes obsessed with playing poker using her college money.
