    One thing that stuck out about this episode was how cohesive it was.

    I agree, though the ending seemed a little schmaltzy for me. I especially enjoyed Homer's sharing of "the birds and bees" with Bart, and how it spread. A great start to the season. These people seemed like a REAL family again, like the glory days.

    I was shocked at how good this one was after that horrible halloween episode. All the stuff already mentioned was great.

    I liked that Marge didn't want to be just a woman married to a guy that doesn't go to work.

    The Jimmy Cann stuff was good too. Best guest appearance in a while.

    1. Okay, isn't the Flander's house on that side of the Simpson's house already?

    2. Okay, so Bart & Millhouse get the magazines, THEN two years pass, and they are still gung-ho about the magazines?

    3. Okay, didn't Mrs. Krabappel marry Principal Skinner?

    The Flanders' house is to the left of the Simpsons', when facing toward the houses.

    2. Okay, so Bart & Millhouse get the magazines, THEN two years pass, and they are still gung-ho about the magazines?

    I've had magazines I'm still pretty gung-ho about for a lot longer than 2 years.

    3. Okay, didn't Mrs. Krabappel marry Principal Skinner?

    No. Almost, but no.

    Funny episode, I loved the spread of the birds and the bees (so true, isn't it?) but I do get annoyed these days with episodes that feature Lisa's overly heightened morality and/or political awareness and unfortunately they seem to have been doing a lot of these episodes in the past few years.

    To each his own, I suppose. I find this aspect of the show one of the funniest and most consistently charming.

    Agreed. After last season and then the Halloween episode, I was ready to give up on the show. I certainly hope this is a sign of things to come!!

    I just can't say I have enjoyed the way Lisa's character has "Evolved" over the years. When the show first started, Lisa was a bit more intelligent and erudite than the rest of the family, but at the end of the day, she was still a Simpson who enjoyed the antics of the family instead of being humiliated by them all the time. She even had occiasional episodes of Simpson obnoxiousness of her own. But now as I said she usually seems to want to distance herself from the rest of the family (with the exception of Marge), she is about 2 steps away from total estraingment from Homer. She's not a Vegitarian, Buddhist, Envrionmentalist etc. and her angst of being a Simpson gets a bit grating after awhile.

    Wow! I figured I'd come into this thread and read a ton of hatred for this episode. I really didn't like it at all. It seemed like they ripped off so many past episodes that it lost it's 'uniqueness'.

    But I guess (as South Park alluded to), The Simpsons have done pretty much everything, so I guess they kind of have to repeat themselves. [​IMG]

    I guess the funniest part for me was when Homer pictured living next to himself and he had Separate Ways (by Journey) cranked. [​IMG]

    I don't like the add-ons. He should just stick to saying "Ha ha" in appropriate circumstances.
