Though Sunday night's episode of The Simpsons was your basic Bart-takes-part-in-mischief storylines, I quite enjoyed it. The writers are still able to work a little something new into this tried and true staple, and "Postcards from the Wedge" was no exception. From the stylized opening to Bart's manipulation of his parents' marriage, the episode delivered laughs along with its familiarity.
The "Springfield of Tomorrow" opening was fantastic. I absolutely loved Tex Avery's "..Of Tomorrow" shorts as a kid and this segment brought me right back to that joy. The voiceover and art style was a great nod (with hints of The Jetsons) to those classics, and the bits were equally funny. If you're unfamiliar with those shorts from the '50s, I hope the opening to this Simpsons episode encourages you to check them out on YouTube. The transition out of this opening was also funny as it was revealed we were watching a film in Bart's class and Mrs. Krabappel stated, "Well, that concludesâ¦ I don't really know what that was."
