The Episode Review
The episode is an enormous improvement over previous seasons. The plot is intriguing with a touch of humor, but with an important message. Duffman’s transformation from an attention-seeking character to a caring father is a joy to see. It’s even better when he solicits Homer to help him. We’d have loved to see more jokes. However, overall this is a great episode that is sure to keep you entertained.
