Depressed by his humdrum existence Homer gets in touch with Eduardo, his childhood pen-pal, who comes over from Barcelona to help him live out some of his childhood wishes, such as driving a fire engine and gliding. At the same time Lisa devises a plan to stop cheating in the school by getting the pupils to sign a pledge. When she catches Bart cheating she wants him to own up but he will only agree if he gets a sign from above - which he gets in the shape of free-falling Homer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Emotional but Still Hilarious,
10 May 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

YOLO (despite its name) is a great Simpsons episode with a really nice story and side story filled with some very funny scenes.The episode is very sweet as we see Homer getting help from his old pen pal at fulfilling some once in a lifetime experiences after he falls in to a mid life crisis.This is the second episode in a row where the subject of death is a major plot point,I really like seeing the show deal with more mature subjects,but two episodes in a row is a bit overwhelming,it definitely should have been spread out so you have several much lighter episodes in between,however I do really like seeing the show go past parodies and guest stars and dealing with something more personal.YOLO is a great and emotional Simpsons episode.

After watching Homer fall into a mid life crisis slump,Marge concocts a plan to make him feel alive again,getting in his touch with his childhood pen pal.
