Basically, this is the last season of The Simpsons that retained its witty sense of humor, and didn't resort to outlandish storylines and throwing in celebrity guest stars week after week. Episodes like "You Only Move Twice" (I love the 007 scene), "A Milhouse Divided", "The Twisted World Of Marge Simpson", Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(ANNOYED GRUNT)cious", "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show", "Homer's Phobia", and the classic "Homer's Enemy" exudes the shows last ounces of genius from script to screen. The storylines of these episodes are enjoyable, and captivating from start to finish. The witty humor of the past seasons is well retained in season eight with many side splitting moments of hillarity to prove it. In addition, season eight showcases further development of favorite characters, as well as the introduction of unforgettable new favorites like Frank Grimes and Poochie.
Truly, Season 8 is indeed the end of an era of what was the most brilliantly inventive series on television. Fortunately, it will live infinitely on DVD to be respected and enjoyed by core fans and casual viewers alike.
