The Simpsons: "The Squirt and the Whale" Season 21, Episode 19 Review


"The Squirt and the Whale" was an absolute gem. Like many of the classic Simpsons episodes, it was hilarious and heartwarming. In a time when many are saying the series has lost its magic, Sunday night's episode proved that even the old-timers can show you how it's done once in a while.


The episode was great right from the start, beginning with opening credits. Bart's chalkboard bit was a nod to the guys at South Park and their recent controversy with the depiction of Muhammad. "South Park-- we'd stand beside you if we weren't so scared." Since The Simpsons opened the doors for shows like South Park, it was nice to see the camaraderie. Follow that up with a clever and fun romp through the Springfield Shopper as the couch gag, and we had a few good laughs under our belt before the episode even started.
