‘The Great Louse Detective’ is a clear stand out episode here, due to being one of the finest uses of Sideshow Bob, and also features a good twist that calls back to one of the shows finest one off characters in its early years, Frank Grimes.
‘A Star is Born-Again’ is one that stuck out to me because it is something a bit different and gives us a good focus on someone who is consistently a stand out character, Ned Flanders.
The ‘Treehouse of Horror’ this season was one of the best they have done so far, with three distinct and interesting stories. As for the rest, there was a consistently strong set of episodes, if slightly forgettable, that likely would’ve been raved about if it came from another show with lower expectations.
The Simpsons just keeps churning out quality.
