An Award Worthy Episode
17 November 2017 | by corinwrightSee all my reviews

This is a very special episode, and a true gem in and amongst the newer era of Simpsons seasons.

This is a great episode because it shows the life progression of one of the shows most beloved, if not most beloved character Bart and as stated in another review, this is not a goofy view of his future where the main humour is derived from the novelty of a futuristic environment, this is all about Bart.

This episode makes an emotional connection with anyone who has invested time into The Simpsons at any point over the last thirty years, and it does so without sacrificing comedy. I found myself laughing more during this episode than I did during most of the previous episodes combined in season 27.

I was curious to watch this episode when I saw the stand out rating, and it really is deserving of the praise. When the Simpsons eventually does finish, this one will live long in the memory for sure. And it's good to know that our favourite ten year old actually ends up alright.
