A missed chance
7 April 2014 | by smiling-buffoSee all my reviews

I usually have hope for the new episodes of the simpsons, although I have to say the older episodes are generally better, I don't hate the newer simpsons.

That being said I just felt disappointed with this episode. So much subplots going, that felt like they were just there to fill time. And none of them truly paid off. When I finished watching, I just sat there feeling:'what was the point of that?'

There were some funny moments, and Bart's side-story where he bonded with Snake was heartwarming. To me it felt like they should've just done a whole episode about that, sadly this part has been reduced to a series of gags.

So yeah it just really felt like a missed chance and a flawed episode.


Im not giving up hope yet though, there has been some standout episodes this season.
