A great Simpsons episode
6 January 2020 | by studioATSee all my reviews

I'm a bit harsh on 'newer' episodes of 'The Simpsons' at times, but equally when an episode is great I'll say so.

This episode, in which Homer becomes a tow trick driver, is one of the best episodes I've seen in a long time. It's got some huge laughs in it, and some lovely memorable lines.

For those who believe that anything past series 10 of the show is rubbish I'd urge them to watch this episode.
