A Funny, albeit Forgetful, start to the Twenty Seventh Season,
13 November 2015 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Every Man's Dream is a good Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. It's an enjoyable twenty minutes as we see Homer and Marge face one of the most difficult points in their relationship yet, and there is a stage where I genuinely felt like we wouldn't be seeing them together again, Lena Dunham also provides great voice work as the woman who lures him away from Marge. The episode becomes too far fetched towards the last five minutes, while it was funny and added a fun twist, it was ridiculous and somewhat tedious. As a regular episode, it's fine, and I think it would have been a better call putting this in the middle of the season, the first and last episode of a season should always be strong, and because this opened the twenty seventh season, it gets much more harsh criticism than it really deserves. Funny and enjoyable, but very weak at certain points, Every Man's Dream is a good, but not brilliant, start to the latest season of the Simpsons.

When Marge feels she can no longer be with Homer, he begins seeing a much younger woman.
