An Episode in the Same Reign As 22 Short Films About Springfield
22 November 2020 | by vlinalterSee all my reviews

This episode has three separate stories, following Lisa, Bart, and Homer, with Marge popping up to connect each of them together. This story is so intricately put together, utilizing lots of foreshadowing. It is so interesting to watch all three stories slowly cross paths until it reaches a pretty satisfying conclusion. This episode is brilliant and just as good as 22 Short Films About Springfield, if not better.
