The Simpsons Review: A Sappy Story

I'm usually pretty unimpressed with The Simpsons. As you can tell from the last episode, I, like show's writers, am just waiting for the inevitable conclusion to this long-running series.

But occasionally the show can still surprise me with an understated story that carries all the warmth of its earlier seasons. "A Tree Grows in Springfield" focuses on one character, Homer, and despite my dislike for Homer's increasingly ridiculous shenanigans, I found myself moved by his story of hope lost and regained.

I guess I'm feeling a little sappy today.
