One of the worst episodes I've ever seen
12 June 2016 | by bazmitch23See all my reviews

Seriously! What were the writers thinking? Or better yet, smoking? "Oh, let's do an episode where Grandpa tries to kill himself!"

Why?

Just why?

Another thing that bothered me about this episode was the Down Syndrome joke.

No.

NO!

This is The Simpsons, you don't do that. In South Park and Family Guy, it's okay to do it, because those were intentionally offensive shows made for an adult audience.

The Simpsons can go a little too far at times, but this is just too much.

This episode was bad, I couldn't even finish it.

You know an episode is bad when it opens with Maggie babbling and subtitles appear on the screen.
