The Wreck of the Relationship
20 January 2021 | by studioATSee all my reviews

We were well into series 26 of the show at this point, so it was nice to see new angles for the Homer/Bart relationship to be explored, and there were some very clever moments within that storyline.

The B plot involving Marge wasn't great, but on the whole this was a good episode by latter day Simpsons standards.
