A Weaker Moment in the Twenty First Season but Still Fun,
23 December 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Rednecks and Broomsticks is a good Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and lots of very funny scenes.It is certainly a weaker episode of the twenty first season,the main plot wasn't that enjoyable to me,seeing Lisa practicing witchcraft could have been fun but it simply didn't turn out as well,and having her even believe that sort of thing is sort of contradicting the intelligent Lisa we've come to know.The sub plot was a lot more fun to me,it's the main reason I'm giving this an eight and thought it easily could have been it's own episode,seeing Homer and Cletus bond was absolutely hilarious as they are both easily some of the stupidest characters on the show and seeing them making moonshine together was a delight.Its not the worst nor is it the finest episode of the Twenty First Season,but Rednecks and Broomsticks is still a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Lisa becomes friends with three girls learning witchcraft.Meanwhile,Homer becomes good friends with Cletus and soon becomes an expert on moonshine.
