Trivia

Although the full frontal nude scene of Bart in the Simpsons film caused much controversy, this episode was the first instance of a Simpsons character's uncensored genitalia being shown. When Homer looks up the front page of the newspaper from the day he was born, the photo of him is clearly anatomically correct. See more »

Guess who's coming to dinner
19 July 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

I always like Lisa and Homer centred episodes, and this is a good example.

This 11th series of 'The Simpsons' has really started well, and this episode is full of great visual and verbal jokes throughout.

Homer is at the centre again, and this proves again that the shows focus has moved away from Bart, who was the focus in the earlier years.

With a good plot, some nice winks to other films/TV shows and some nice guest voices this is a very good episode.
