The Simpsons: Rednecks and Broomsticks

I’m posting this because if, like me, you’ve gotten out of the habit of watching The Simpsons in realtime, you probably missed this episode, which I found pretty delightful.

It did several things that I have missed in more recent years.

The story seemed a lot more natural and character-focused than has become the norm. And it just plain made me laugh a lot.

Hulu only has the most recent 5 episodes of The Simpsons, but for now you can watch it here:
