Back to the future--again!
25 December 2011 | by athomedSee all my reviews

Couch gag rating: 7/10 A cute little gingerbread theme.

The episode: The Simpsons family flashes 30 years into the future in this Christmas episode. Bart and Lisa return home with their respective children. Maggie is now a rock start about to give birth. Enough said.

Favorite moment(s): The Christmas cards and Lisa's use of Google.

I really enjoyed this episode. Seeing the Simpsons in the future is always a treat. Look out for the references to today from tomorrow's perspective! There's a sentimental moment at the end with Bart and his children, Homer and his father, and then the entire family. I never get tired of those as we've continued to explore the Simpson family over 20+ years of episodes.

Overall rating: 8/10 If you don't watch more than a few Simpsons episodes a season, this is one to watch.
