Talking Simpsons #454: The Seemingly Never-Ending Story


The Seemingly Never-Ending Story, the 13th episode of season 17 and the 369th overall, was first broadcasted on March 12, 2006 with a script by Ian Maxtone-Graham and directed by Raymond S. Persi.

While cave exploring with his family, Homer causes the cave to crumble and finds himself stuck upside down in the ceiling. Marge and Bart search for help while Lisa passes the time by telling Homer a story, which turns into a chain of narrated tales that, bit by bit, explain why The Simpsons are spending the day at Carl’s Dad Caverns.

The way the story is told in this episode makes it one of the most interesting and inventive episodes the show has ever done. The writing is top notch, nothing feels like you’re getting cheated out of anything, the jokes work really well, the animation is really solid, this is a really good episode, it’s a ton of fun to watch.

Any episode of The Simpsons that could beat out South Park’s Trapped In The Closet episode at the Emmys has to be worth something.
