I thought this was their best one of the season so far, proving that not only do they still have a creative taste for cartoon humor and violence, but they also still know how to tell a charming story in the midst of all the mayhem.

I was particularly intrigued by the fact that they handled this weeks guest with the proper guest star treatment, instead of making the entire episode about them. I had to make it clear to some people on Facebook that this episode does not revolve around the guest (cough cough Musk.)

Well done Simpsons. It's nice to see another town mob once more.
