I give the first 10 seasons of The Simpsons (most fans say 9 seasons) and the Simpsons shorts a ★★★★★ rating. If The Simpsons ended there it would be my favorite show.
This episode maybe inspired one of my favorite episodes called There's No Disgrace Like Home.
Homer wonders why his family isn't ordinary, and they use electroshock therapy on each other.
I wish The Simpsons didn't shy away from making dark, poignant satire and genuinely moving episodes like One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish.
