Review: The Simpsons - O Brother, Where Bart Thou?


The last episode of 2009 also has the distinction of being the 449th episode of The Simpsons. The series will come back Sunday, January 10th for a 450th episode extravaganza, including a one-hour 20th anniversary special. It's certainly a big year for Tracey Ullman's one-time back-up series.


The beginning of the episode had an almost frantic pace, as it set up about four or five different possible plotlines, before finally settling on Bart's jealousy of Lisa and Maggie's relationship. His attempts to help his parents create a little brother for him were a little disturbing, but that was more than made up for by a fantasy sequence featuring many famous brothers.


I think I could have stayed in that land of brotherly love a little longer. We got to see the Mannings (Peyton, Eli and Cooper), as well as the Wright brothers, the Blues Brothers and even the Mario Brothers. The Mannings even voiced themselves; apparently the Mario Brothers couldn't be bothered!
