A Different Side to Homer and Milhouse,
4 December 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

What Animated Women Want is a great Simpsons episode with a two very enjoyable storyline's and plenty of very funny scenes.I really enjoyed seeing how far Homer would go to win back Marge and seeing Milhouse acting like a jerk to Lisa was also very enjoyable and unexpected.My favourite part of the episode was definitely the Breaking Bad parody at the start,and I was very impressed that they got Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul on it but it would have been a lot better if they gave them a few lines of dialogue as Walter and Jesse.What Animated Women is a very funny and enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Homer sets out to save his marriage yet again,meanwhile,Milhouse tries his hand at being a bad boy to impress Lisa.
