As Burns would say... Excellent

Unlike the previous review posted on here, I personally thing this was the must down to Earth Simpsons episode in recent years. Despite the very upsetting season premier, Halloween of Horror and Cue Detectives have had some of the most consistently funny and heartwarming moments, and therefore are 2 of the best episodes of the season so far (and best episodes in a LONG time.)

Halloween of Horror revolves around Lisa's newfound fear of Halloween, and Homer's desire to decorate the house but also protect Lisa for the night, after angering a group of pop-up Halloween employees. Various elements in the episode gave this a ''season 2'' type feeling to it, in the sense that it was consistently heartwarming, hilarious, the scoring was amazing, the animation and subtle sight gags were great, and the overall dialogue was very very strong. OH and this was the first time in a LONG LONG time that we've gotten a good town song.

Halloween of Horror was written by Carolyn Omine and directed by Mike Anderson. I hope to see more episodes by these two, and I would not be surprised if this was the episode that scored The Simpsons another Emmy this year. Well done.
