Very good episode with a great guest appearance from Joan Rivers,without bringing too much of her own comedy thankfully,
25 July 2012 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Ten-Per-Cent Soulution is a great Simpsons episode with a great storyline and very funny.I thought Joan Rivers did a fantastic job as Anne Dubinsky,I've never been a fan of Joan Rivers however,and when I heard she was going to be in an episode I thought she would spread too much of her own comedy in the episode,which I don't like,but she didn't,she just went by the script and her voice really suited the character.I think that Dan Castellenate(voice of Homer and Krusty,among many others) should continue to write episodes with his wife,Deb Lucasta,because I always really enjoy the episodes they write,especially Days Of Wines And Doh'ses and The Fight Before Christmas,and think they should continue to make more.

At a request of The Simpsons,Krusty gets back with his first assistant,Anne Dubinsky (voiced by Joan Rivers),who he had a serious relationship.Anne is now determined to make Krusty more entertaining for an older audience.
