Screwed up and forgot to post a review for Friday so double Simpsons episodes time:
The Debarted, the 13th episode of season 19 and the 413th overall, was first broadcasted on March 2, 2008 with a script by Joel H. Cohen and directed by Matthew Nastuk.
Bart begins to suspect a rat when all of his pranks backfire — and might have something to do with his new friend, Donny. Meanwhile, Homer grows attached to his rental car, which he gets to drive for a week while his old car gets repaired.
A really good episode, a good little homage to the Departed in this episode and Topher Grace gives a very good effective performance as Donny here.
Dial N For Nerder, episode 414 and the 14th of season 19, was first broadcasted on March 9, 2008 with a script by Carolyn Omine & William Wright and directed by Bob Anderson.
Bart and Lisa’s prank on Martin Prince goes too far and they worry that they may be implicated in his death by the police (and Nelson, who becomes an amateur sleuth). Meanwhile, Marge calls upon the producer of a reality show that specializes in tracking down cheating couples when she begins to suspect that Homer may be cheating…on his diet.
A really good episode, as the production crew is finally getting back to basics after The Simpsons Movie and the well written material is returning to form in these recent episodes with this one being such a solid episode all the way around.
