Wow, finally a return to form for The Simpsons. This episode was a breath of fresh air in the otherwise stale and predictable humour of late.

Homer's subplot was also funny and provided the comic relief when the main plot was getting to the serious part, which is exactly how it should be. In fact the whole episode's pacing and plot interlinking were spot-on, something which has not been fully achieved for the best part of a year.

I don't think there was anything you could not like with this episode: it was free from lame and/or unimaginative jokes. The only thing which would come close would be Homer getting shocked by the Sprawl*Mart compliance chip. However, this wasn't as 'graphic' as other episodes (eg Sideshow Bob in 'The Great Louse Detective', Homer in 'The Fat And The Furriest'), so it was okay in my opinion.

Bart-Lisa conflicts have always made great episodes, and judging the Season so far, I didn't have high hopes for this episode. But I was proved wrong: there is still life in The Simpsons; Now if only every episode was this good, we'd be set.


(nys)seems like a good episode
